LSSU’s Hockey Team Playing During the Pandemic
SAULT STE. MARIE — After the big question mark surrounding the start of the hockey season, Lake Superior State opened up their 55th season in late November.
The Lakers have played six games so far, all while trying to stay healthy and safe during the pandemic. Even through all the schedule changes and a couple games being postponed to due COVID-19 concerns, the team is still finding a way to play their season.
“I think we all thought this is where we’d be at. We got up here pretty early at the end of July and we’ve been practicing and working out pretty much everyday, so we’ve been pretty prepared for the season,” assistant captain Ashton Calder said. “We’ve only had one shutdown due to COVID, so we were pretty prepared going into the season and everything’s been working out.”
