Welcome to the SBN College Hockey Morning Edition. Your guide to all of yesterday's college hockey news.

Big Ten

The Big Ten/Hockey East Challenge is back for a second season, this time with 20 games included in the standings. The winning conference gets a trophy this year(Or maybe they did last too, I have no idea). If you're keeping score at home, it's two points for a win, one point for a tie, and a bonus point for a road win.

Wisconsin women's alum Hilary Knight will practice with the Anaheim Ducks today, and then be on hand at the Ducks game on Saturday as part of the Ducks #GirlsPlayHockey initiative.

Hockey East

Jake Wise--a 2000 birthdate--committed to Boston University yesterday.

NCHC

We previewed North Dakota yesterday. The Miami preview will come later this morning to finish off the league.

St. Cloud's Mika Ilvonen has to miss the first five games of the season because of a dumb rule. And they're five important games too.

We made all the way to October 2nd before our first Facebook fight between North Dakota and Minnesota fans broke out.

Miami senior forward Jimmy Mullin is out for the year with an injury.

WCHA

Minnesota State picked up a commitment from another German.

The Ferris State/Michigan game got picked up by Comcast television in Michigan, northern Ohio, and Indiana.

Recruiting

Canada released their three rosters for the World U17 Challenge. The US will send their NTDP U17 team to this tournament. Keep on eye on Canadians Tyson Jost and Dante Fabbro, who are still NCAA eligible.

I put together some notes on a game between Shattuck-St. Mary's and the Minnesota Blades. Two current college commits on Shattuck's team, but plenty more to come.
