Mercyhurst College will announce the school's intention for its hockey program to have an annual game downtown at the Erie Insurance Arena with a title sponsor at a 1 p.m. press conference on Tuesday. The Lakers will move their originally scheduled game against Ohio State on January 2 off campus for the debut of the yearly scheduled game.
The Erie Insurance Arena is a 6,500 seat facility home to the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). The arena also hosted the 2011 NCAA Women's Frozen Four.
