MSUM formally announces plans to pursue Division I men's and women's ice hockey
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

MOORHEAD - Minnesota State Moorhead Athletic Director Doug Peters said Friday that there's at least a 50 percent chance that the school will start Division I men's and women's hockey.

The school needs to raise at least $10 million in external funds and gain conference affiliation, likely spots in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, before the school would make the move.

Peters said he believes the school will be able to raise the needed funds.

To hear more from Peters and Forum reporter Eric Peterson talk about the announcement, listen to the Mike McFeely show on WDAY-AM (970) from noon to 2 p.m.
