The Michigan Collegiate Hockey Conference (MCHC) is an ACHA Division 3 conference made up of smaller colleges and universities in the state of Michigan.
ACHA National Champions
The MCHC has produced nine National Championship teams, the most of any Division 3 conference, including Ferris State (1994), Muskegon Community College (2003), Calvin College (2004), Saginaw Valley State (2009, 2010), Adrian College-Gold (2012, 2013, 2014) and Michigan State University (2015). SVSU became the first school in Division 3 history to not only win two National Championships, but to do it in back-to-back years. Adrian College-Gold later became the first school in Division 3 history to not only make three straight National Championship Games, but to win all three.
ACHA National Runner-Ups
The MCHC has produced seven National Runner-Ups including Hope College (2003, 2010, 2011, 2014), Northwood (2006), Davenport (2012) and Michigan-Flint (2013). Hope College is the first school in Division 3 to make it to four National Championship games.
ACHA National Championship Game
Five times the ACHA Division 3 National Championship Game has featured two MCHC teams. In 2003 Muskegon Community College vs. Hope College, in 2010 Saginaw Valley State vs. Hope College, in 2012 Adrian College-Gold vs. Davenport, in 2013 Adrian College vs. Michigan-Flint and in 2014 Adrian College-Gold vs. Hope College.
Regular Season Format
The MCHC is divided into two, seven team divisions: East and West. Teams play each team within their division twice (home and away). Teams earn two points for a win, one point for an overtime loss and one point for a tie (no shootouts). The team with the most points at the end of the season wins their division. If two teams earn the same amount of points, they will be co-winners (no tie breaker).
