  • May 27: CHA member Wayne State University announced that sponsorship of the women’s ice hockey program had been dissolved. The decision was attributed due to continuing reductions in the state of Michigan appropriations for higher education.[1] The Wayne State Warriors recorded an all-time CHA mark of 48-59-7 (.452) in nine seasons, tying for the CHA regular-season title in 2007–08.
  • June 13: Mercyhurst Lakers assistant coach Paul Colontino left the club to become head coach of the Robert Morris Colonials. He is the third head coach in Colonials history, after the resignation of Nate Handrahan, who left to assume the head coaching position at Ohio State.[2]
  • September 6: Robert DeGregorio, Commissioner for College Hockey America (CHA), announced that the Penn State Nittany Lions had been accepted into the CHA. The Nittany Lions will officially join the conference starting with the 2012–13 season.[3]
