So we know quite a bit early on already but let's fill in some blanks...

Travel Partners + Travel Partners = Cluster****mates
Duluth/Tech + Minnesota/Wisconsin
CC/Denver + Mankato/UAA
UND/SCSU + Bemidji/UNO

Just a review... Within each cluster, each team plays the other 3 teams in two series' (4 games). Then they play 4 more home and 4 away series' against those outside of their cluster for total of 28 conference games. The clusters will change each year but the travel partners stay together for at least the next 5 years and at the end of 5 years every team will have played each other the same amount (other than your travel partner).

About the clusters from Sioux Sports (http://blog.siouxsports.com/2010/01/18/wcha-rotating-schedule-for-2010-2011-and-beyond/)

Previously Released Schedules (tentative but pretty solid):
A bunch of WCHA schools just released their's recently. Instead of sorting through which ones have been announced, here you go. North Dakota's official one comes tomorrow. Note that Wisconsin and Minnesota have some weird stuff going on. They have a couple of Fri/Sun games now, which are the icebreaker tourney (applicable to holy cross, bu, and notre dame) and the huntsville series. Also, Minnesota now lists the home St. Cloud series as being 10/23-24 (Sat/Sun) even though the St. Cloud website does not yet.

Anyone else have any WCHA game information? If I've made any typos please let me know.

From an old Bemidij Pioneer article (back when the '10-'11 schedule was released in ~ Sept '09):


In developing the WCHA’s five year schedule, Serratore said the cleanest option was chosen. “Basically the traditional travel partners will remain the same, with the addition of BSU being paired with UNO,” he said.

In 2010-11, BSU and UNO will be joined by UND and SCSU to form a four-team cluster. The Beavers will play each team in the cluster four times (home and home series) for a total of 12 games. BSU will then play the remaining eight teams in the league two game each, for a total of 16 games, with eight on the road and eight at home.

The cluster mates will rotate in each of the five seasons. In 2011-12 BSU/UNO will be joined by Colorado College and Denver, in 2012-13 Michigan Tech and UMD, 2013-14 Alaska-Anchorage and Mankato, and 2014-15 Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Under this schedule every team in the league will play every other team at home three out of five years – except for the travel partners who will play each other every year, Serratore explained. “Over the course of the five year schedule, everybody plays each other the same amount of times – home and away,” he said.

For North Dakota in 2010-11, the Sioux will play SCSU, BSU and UNO home and away. In addition, North Dakota will host Alaska-Anchorage, Denver, Minnesota and UMD. On the road for league games UND will travel to Colorado College, Michigan Tech, Mankato and Wisconsin.

In 2011-12, Minnesota and Wisconsin will join UND/SCSU as cluster mates. In league games UND will host SCSU, CC, Tech, Mankato, Minnesota, UNO and Wisconsin. Road games include SCSU, UAA, BSU, Denver, Minnesota, UMD and Wisconsin.

From an old Bemidij Pioneer article (back when the '10-'11 schedule was released in ~ Sept '09):

After watching the Series between UNO and Bemidji this year in Omaha, it is safe to say we like our new travel partner...

Thanks, you don't happen to know the order of the home and home games, do you?

Not yet

Don't know who will play who in the first round of the Denver Cup yet either. My understanding it is going back to tourney style with the winners playing each other for the championship and the losers playing for 3rd place.

I believe DU will play Air Force in the first round, and Clarkson will play Lake Superior State in the first round.

I owe Yager 2 beers.

One for securing the MN-MTU dates in Houghton, allowing me to secure the necessary days off WELL in advance (which, for that time of year, is needed at my work) and one for doing this work for the hockey world. :)

And one more for good measure (and because you have more money than me being that I am in college)!

Yeah, that won't happen, as I have bills that are a part of real life. :p

College loan bills are very much a part of real life. Just not yours.

Like lung cancer treatment bills? If you didn't smoke like a chimney, you wouldn't have those bills.

Hey now, there is no way to be certain about that.

Besides, we ALL pay those bills. Whether you smoke or not.
