College Hockey's Most Historic & Successful League Launches New Era & All-New WCHA.com

Big Rapids, Mich. - The new conference home of Ferris State Hockey, the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA), unveiled today its redesigned website at www.WCHA.com.

The new site, which is a work in progress, reflects the new league membership for the 2013-14 season and adds a number of new features and innovative content. Among the major highlights to the relaunched site are a twitter feed on the homepage, more vibrant photos and a prominent location for campus news.

In addition to reflecting the new membership, the site also features a new look with the change in conference logos and a new font style.  A more streamlined homepage also provides a stronger visual top stories section.

Fans will be able to access information on their favorite teams thru rebuilt team pages that provide quick access to important data such as statistics, schedules and rosters.  The league's statistics platform has also been upgraded with a new filtered stats feature and revised individual player pages.

The league expects the new site to continue to evolve over the summer with additional new features, including updates to the conference's history and traditions.

College hockey's most historic and successful league, the 62-year-old Western Collegiate Hockey Association, has been home to a record 37 men's national championship teams since its founding in 1951, a record 16 Hobey Baker Memorial Award winners, more than 430 National Hockey League players, 350 All-Americans, and 115 Olympians.

With the coming 2013-14 season, the men's WCHA is launching an exciting new era with a tremendously competitive group of 10 prominent university programs that combine the very best in both athletics and academics. The University of Alabama Huntsville, the University of Alaska Anchorage, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Bemidji State University, Bowling Green State University, Ferris State University, Lake Superior State University, Michigan Technological University, Minnesota State University and Northern Michigan University are all tremendous ice hockey programs with great and long-standing traditions, and we are all geared up for what will be a truly memorable campaign.

Coinciding with the launch of the 2013-14 campaign, the all-new WCHA.com showcases the league, its member programs and its great history and tradition in a first-class manner. It includes a dynamic new WCHA logo and colors allowing for a more vibrant site.

The streamlined home page offers a stronger visual Top Stories section, the continuation of Campus News where visitors will get the latest from our member campuses, and the addition of the WCHA twitter feed. More exciting new features will come with the launch of the new season in the fall.
