Plans for a new six-team Division I men's league, which will include Minnesota Duluth, will be announced Wednesday next week in Colorado Springs, Colo., sources have said.

UMD, North Dakota, Denver, Colorado College and Nebraska-Omaha of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, will join Miami of Ohio of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association in the as of yet unnamed league, which has been dubbed the Super League.

The league will begin play in 2013-14, the same season as the Big Ten Conference hockey league.

It's possible Notre Dame could be added to the league following Wednesday's announcement, but the Fighting Irish of the CCHA are still weighing their options.

The new league was put on a fast track following the announcement of the Big Ten league in March, and has been in the works since Penn State officially added varsity hockey in September.
