Fun Fact

Elliot Olshansky of CSTV's Rink Rat Blog has been checking out schedules for the upcoming year, and noticed something interesting.

Lake Superior is scheduled to play Minnesota-Duluth this season as part of the new "Superior Cup," which features Lake Superior, Duluth, Michigan Tech, and Northern Michigan. The game will be Lake Superior's first game against a WCHA opponent since the Lakers played Minnesota in December 2000 as part of the Mariucci Classic.

It's incredibly rare for a CCHA team to go that long without playing a WCHA opponent. In fact, Western Michignan was the only other CCHA team not to play a WCHA opponent last season, and Western had played Wisconsin the year prior.
