    Any whispers on who the new assistant coach will be?
    I think Damon has made his decision on who he wants as the new assistant coach, and the new guy may very well have accepted the offer by now. Not sure how quick we'll get an official announcement.

    So who will write the release when the new coach is announced? Do the Lakers have a new SID yet?

    Not yet. Someone else is writing press releases in the interim. We don't even have a new AD yet.

    As far as recruiting. I'm sorry you couldn't connect the dots. Thanks for the clarification though because I thought it was his stepfather.

    oh I don't know, I connected those dots when the kid committed rather early for a Michigan HS kid.

    I've heard stepfather from a few other people too. You ask Damon next time you see him. And I'll ask Paul the next time I see him and we'll get all the familiar relationships straightened out LOL

    We just lost a futures D-man to Major Junior hockey. Patrick Kyte signed with Halifax of the QMJHL. I think he was projected to come to the Lakers for the 2018-19 season.

    Is there any word about receiving special permission for four exhibition matches? One of each (total of two) would count against the 34, which brings it to 36 games total, given there's only one trip to Alaska this year.

    What are LSSU's exhibition games?

    The schedule has a two game exhibition set with Laurentian week 1 then a two game set with the NTDP during Thanksgiving. Only one game from each series can be exempted. The two games that would count, plus 36 regular season games, minus the two game Alaska exemption is still 36.

    I checked out of curiousity and Laurentian has both games on their schedule as well, so it isn't just a matter of someome making an assumption they shouldn't have when posting the schedule.

    You're only allowed two exhibitions against non-NCAA D-1 teams. They don't count against your game count.

    More specifically, you're only allowed one exhibition against a foreign team (usually a Canadian college, sometimes the Russian Red Stars), one against the US Olympic team (not likely since they started sending pros), and one against any other USA Hockey national team.

    It's not outside of the realm to get special permission for a two-game series to be exempt, as that's something Alabama Huntsville gained when they were independent and playing a lot of club teams; I assume the justification was the travel, though; something that isn't exactly that tough between Detroit/Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.

    We've gotten those from time to time over the years for the same travel justification. The practice largely ended with Doug Ross, though.

    Yeah. I think there is some type of exemption where you can play more than the normal number of exhibition games once every so many years, You can't do it every year. Back in the 2010-11 season, the Lakers opened the season with an exhibition game against a Canadian university team, then played a series of 5 more exhibition games (all on the road) against Canadian universities over the Christmas holidays.
