NCAA Division I Independents (men's hockey)

NCAA Division I Independents (men's hockey)

NCAA Division I independents are four-year institutions that do not participate in a conference in a given sport. This does not mean that Division I independents schedule each other for competition like conference schools do. Many independent schools later join established conferences. As of 2006, there are no schools competing as a D-I independent in men's hockey.

In men's ice hockey, there are several current schools who, at one time or another, competed as D-I independents.
