The Boston College-Notre Dame rivalry will soon heat up on the ice. Notre Dame announced Wednesday that it will be leaving the Central Collegiate Hockey Association for Hockey East, beginning with the 2013-14 season.
The Irish have been in the CCHA since 1992, but the western conferences are being shaken up since the announcement of the new Big Ten for hockey, set to begin in 2013-14 as well. At least 18 of the 58 teams in Division 1 will change conferences in the next two years.
