Hockey at Illinois could benefit a number of other Illini programs
A study released showed overwhelming support for adding D-1 hockey to the University of Illinois.
Athletic director Josh Whitman spoke with the media Thursday on potential plans moving forward. One of the main points being building a new arena for that hockey team.
But it's not just hockey that would benefit. Volleyball, men and women's gymnastics and wrestling would all share the new home, as well as being a location for countless other events to be hosted in Champaign.
No timetable or concrete plans have been set, but the study was certainly a step in the right direction for adding hockey at the U of I in the near future.
