The NCAA has granted two changes that men’s and women’s college hockey coaches and commissioners have requested.

First, the NCAA moved up the date for the first allowable full-time practices.

In the past, full-time practices — 20 hours a week — often didn’t open until about the time teams were playing their preseason exhibition games.

Now, they’ll open a week earlier.

Teams will still have limited hours prior to the opening of full-time practices.


The second change allows schools to schedule other NCAA colleges in exhibition games — something that was granted temporarily during the coronavirus pandemic. It will now become permanent.

What’s the 2nd change?
