Meet the new WCHA: Lake Superior State another old BSU rival


The Western Collegiate Hockey Association is changing dramatically next season, losing eight teams and adding six more.

With that in mind, The Pioneer will be giving readers an in-depth look at the WCHA this summer so fans can familiarize themselves with the new members (and become reacquainted with the old ones) before the season begins in October.

Our series continues this week in Michigan's Upper Peninsula with the Lake Superior State Lakers.
