(WDAY TV) -- So, 6 WCHA teams made the national tournament, that's half the conference. It gives you an idea of how good that league is.

But, 5 of those 6 teams will be in a new conference next year, with MSU-Mankato being the lone exception. Yes, the WCHA's 61-year run of being the most dominant college hockey conference in the country came to an end

following last night's Final Five title game.

There are countless NHL players that have came and went through the WCHA, including two of the Minnesota Wild's marquee players, Zach Parise and Matt Cullen.

In fact, when I spoke with them after Wild practice during the Final Five,

both voiced their disappointment.
