Minnesota State Moorhead Athletic Director Doug Peters said Friday that there's at least a 50 percent chance that the school will start Division I men's and women's hockey.


The school needs to raise at least $10 million in external funds and gain conference affiliation - specifically spots in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association - before the school would make the move.

Peters said he believes the school will be able to raise the needed funds.
