The Loyola University Chicago Men's Hockey Team is a completely student-run club sport whose mission is to provide students with the opportunity to play hockey at a collegiate level. The team has had this as its core mission since its founding in 1970.
The team is a member of the ACHA Division III and plays within the competitive MAHCA (Mid-American Collegiate Hockey Assicoation) Silver North Division. The team has been a part of the MACHA since 2007 and plays against schools like Marquette, Northwestern, Notre Dame, and Robert Morris. The team has made the MACHA playoffs for the first time in 2016 and again in 2017 and has been ranked as a top 15 team in their region for the past 2 seasons.
After its founding in 1970, the team had some great successes early on. In 1975, the team won the central states championship after going 14-3 on the season. The team continued to be a part of Loyola Campus life through the 1980s.
In 2004, the club was reformed and joined the MCHL (Midwest Collegiate Hockey League) and played there for three years before winning the MCHL Championship in 2007.
As one of the oldest and most popular club sports on campus, Loyola Men's Hockey looks to carry on the tradition of success both on and off the ice for years to come.
