25 Seasons in the Making…The Lakers are Heading Back to the NCAA Tournament!

WOOOOO!

After a very interesting game tonight, the Lakers prevailed over the NMU Wildcats to win the WCHA tournament, the Jeff Sauer Trophy, and an auto-bid into the NCAA Tournament!

Pretty much every seat that could be taken at Buffalo Wild Wings in the Sault was taken, and we all celebrated our team’s 6-3 victory.

So, what’s next? Tomorrow night over on ESPN U at 7pm Eastern we will see where the Lakers land during the selection show. These are the auto-bids, being the conference champions:

Hockey East: UMass

ECAC: St. Lawrence

NCHC: North Dakota

B1G: Minnesota

WCHA: Lake Superior State

Atlantic Hockey: American International

Currently we do not know where each team will land, who the At-Large bids are, or where anyone is going, so it ought to be exciting to see where the Lakers will travel to and who they will play in the coming weeks.

So again, a round of applause for the players, coaches and staff, and Believe in Blue!
