Merger with MCHAEdit

The Lake Forest Foresters men's team left the NCHA for the MCHA after the 2008-09 season and returned when the two conferences merged for the 2013-14 season. The merger was started when the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference announced they were going start a men's ice hockey conference beginning with the 2013-14 season, with it's five members that sponsored the sport, all of which played in the NCHA this left the conference with only two remaining members. The Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association at this point had 8 members (5 of which already had women's teams in the NCHA and the other 3 did not have women's programs).
