After winning the 2008-09 College Hockey America championship and reaching to the NCAA Frozen Four, Bemidji State has been selected as the preseason favorite to claim the 2009-10 CHA regular season title in the last season before the league disbands.
The Beavers locked up two first-place votes, finishing atop the standings with eight points. Niagara finished in second with seven points, with Robert Morris (six points) and Alabama-Huntsville (three points) rounding out the rest of the CHA.
