College Hockey:
Great Lakes Invitational goes with Michigan flavor through 2016

The next four Great Lakes Invitational tournament fields have been announced and the event will have a definite Michigan feel through 2016.

Western Michigan will join tournament mainstays Michigan Tech, Michigan State and Michigan outdoors this December at Comerica Park.

Back inside at Joe Louis Arena for the 2014 tournament, Ferris State will join the traditional three and then in 2015, Northern Michigan will round out the four teams.

Western Michigan will return for 2016.

“We’re excited to be able to renew some in-state rivalries at the GLI in the coming years,” said Michigan Tech athletic director Suzanne Sanregret in a statement. “The Detroit Red Wings, Olympia Entertainment, Michigan and Michigan State have been great partners with Michigan Tech over the years. We look forward to adding to the great tradition and history of the tournament.”
