So, a new B1G hockey league is in the works. The goal is to get about 50 games a year on the Big Ten Network. More good news for the B1G, in my opinion.
Again, it's worth considering, does the B1G look to the north into Canada (University of Toronto and McGill University) or northeast to Boston University and Boston College for affiliations in hockey or full-fledged expansion partners? I don't see how it can be ruled out.
