The PAC-8 Hockey Conference is an ACHA Division II club hockey league. The PAC-8 is made up of Pac-10 university's club ice hockey teams. ACHA Division II hockey is on a similar level to ACHA Division I and NCAA Division III depending on the school or league. The PAC-8 is one of the higher level D2 leagues.


Each team plays a minimum of 10 inter-conference games per season and another 20 games for a possible invitation to the ACHA National Tournament.
