2011 Great Lakes Invitational now only four weeks away
Annual NCAA Holiday Tournament set to take place from December 29-30 at Joe Louis Arena
“Throughout the course of my coaching career, there have always been a few major tournaments around the Christmas holiday that have achieved almost iconic status,” says BC Eagles Head Coach Jerry York. “The Great Lakes Invitational, because of its history, has always captivated the national hockey audience. As an eastern team going out to the Midwest, we feel very proud and excited to challenge three schools with great hockey tradition in Michigan Tech, Michigan and Michigan State.”
The 2011 edition of the GLI will begin with a showdown between Michigan State and Michigan Tech at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 29 followed by a battle between Boston College and Michigan later that evening (puck drop – 7:30 p.m.). The two winning teams will then compete for the GLI championship at 7:30 p.m. the following night, with the consolation final set to be staged immediately beforehand (puck drop – 4:00 p.m.). Tickets to this event are now available for purchase at the JLA Box Office (313-396-7575), all Ticketmaster (800-745-3000) outlets, and online at OlympiaEntertainment.com/CollegeHockeyInTheD.
