MEN'S HOCKEY: Bemidji State opens season with classic rival, future WCHA foe Lake Superior State


BEMIDJI – For many reasons, the Lake Superior State Lakers are the perfect opponent for Bemidji State to kick off its 2012-13 campaign. That’s because the Lakers represent past, present and future of Beaver hockey.

“We already have a rivalry with Lake Superior State,” Bemidji State head coach Tom Serratore said of what will be the 42nd and 43rd meeting all time between BSU and LSSU. “If you take a look at the Beaver record books, we’ve played them a lot over the years.”
