Roque makes first CCHA Media Day appearance

DETROIT - Lake Superior State first-year head coach Jim Roque made his first appearance at the Central Collegiate Hockey Association's Media Day on Tuesday at Joe Louis Arena.

"I'm very excited to be coaching in a great league," the former Laker forward and long-time collegiate assistant coach told the media in his introduction.

"Our team returns a lot of experience. Obviously we have a proven goaltender in Jeff Jakaitis, and I think our defense is sound. I think our biggest challenge is to score goals. We feel some guys throughout our lineup have that kind of ability. I think they just need to be given the opportunity to try and showcase their ability to score some goals. That will be one of our biggest challenges without giving up some of the defensive play we have had over the past few years."

In addition to announcing the pre-season polls and Pre-Season All-CCHA Team, which were noted in earlier releases, the CCHA also announced its television schedule for 2005-06. The only LSSU regular-season contest that is scheduled to air is the Michigan game in Ann Arbor on Feb. 11. The game will be broadcast by FSN Detroit.
