Why Razorback Hockey?

In addition to the educational benefits of obtaining your degree from the University, Arkansas is likewise an excellent place to continue your competitive hockey career. Arkansas has a rich history of success at the conference, regional and National level.

The team has won it’s conference post-season playoff tournament seven times and the regular season division championship six times. The Razorbacks competed in the SECHC up until the 2019-20 season, when the school joined the MACHA for their first season of competition in 2021-22. Starting in the 2024-25 season, the program will field teams at both the ACHA Division II and Division III levels.
