Local talent abounds at 2011 GLI
The 47th annual Great Lakes Invitational is set to be staged at Joe Louis Arena on December 29 & 30, with four high-profile NCAA teams set to descend upon the Motor City to battle for the MacInnes Cup over the course of two action-packed days of exciting college hockey.

Several Michiganders will be competing at this year’s GLI, including Jake and Dean Chelios (MSU), sons of recent U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame inductee and Red Wings hockey operations advisor Chris Chelios, as well as Trevor Nill (MSU), son of Wings assistant general manager Jim Nill. Patrick Brown, the son of former Wings forward Doug Brown, is also set to hit the ice at JLA later this month as a member of the Boston College Eagles. A full list of players born/raised in Michigan set to compete at the 2011 GLI can be found below:
