SFU gains entry into NCAA

Simon Fraser University, based in Burnaby, BC, becomes the first international school to be accepted by the NCAA. SFU will make their NCAA debut as a D-II school and among the varsity sports participating, ice hockey will not be one of them (since DII ice hockey doesn't exist, at least as far as competing for a National Championship is concerned). However, it does pave the way for SFU to eventually field ice hockey, as well as possibly expanding into other sports in the coming years.

You can read more about this HERE and HERE.
