SAULT STE. MARIE - The Lake Superior State hockey team will endure one of its most grueling travel schedules in the history of the program as the 2004-05 slate includes back-to-back road trips during final exam week and a trip to Alaska-Fairbanks.

The Lakers open next season with a single exhibition game against the University of Toronto on Friday, Oct. 8. They travel to Colgate the following weekend, and play a home-and-Joe series against Michigan on Oct. 21 and 23. The annual game at Joe Louis Arena is Saturday, Oct. 23.

LSSU heads to Nebraska-Omaha for a Saturday-Sunday series on Dec. 11-12, then must return home in time to begin final exams on Monday, Dec. 13. The team will leave Thursday of that week for a non-conference series at St. Lawrence on Dec. 17-18. After a two-week break, the second half of the season begins with a home series against Notre Dame.

During a four-week stretch in late January and early February, the Lakers will play road series at Michigan State, Alaska Fairbanks and Miami, and play a home series against Ohio State.

Friday home games are scheduled to begin at 7:35 p.m., while Saturday home games will start at 7:05 p.m. Northern Michigan, UAF and Nebraska-Omaha are LSSU's cluster rivals in 2004-05.
