Hard to believe the season is upon us already. This summer flew by! Lakers picked to finish last by the coaches, 9th by the media. Hope we can prove them wrong.

I'm very glad to see somebody else realized that this was the 50th year of the Lakers. Tried to do some research into the history of the program while the team was still the Soo Tech Hornets, but found very little to go on. I hope the team and school will do something to commemorate fifty years.

I think they had a couple of seasons of what could be called (in today's terms) a club hockey team prior to the initial varsity season under Ron Mason in 66-67.

I wonder if Damon is aware of it? Someone should ask him. Anyways, I know in 1995-96, the team commemorated the 30th season. I still have program from that season and it had a 30 years logo on it.

Hard to believe the first Laker Hockey Show of the season is tomorrow. It should be a very interesting show.

The Laker Launch was a lot of fun, but not a lot of fans attended. All the players were great to us all that were there, though, and treated my son like a VIP. Not sure what's up with people in this town, or maybe it's people all over, that would rather sit on their butts at home then get out and actually attend an event. I did take a few pics, they were with my phone, so not great quality. You can view them in this Flickr album if interested:

I attended the launch as well and agree that the players were great. Not sure why the low attendance of fans. Brimley state park had their Halloween event that draws a lot of people is the only thing I know that was going on.

I'm very excited about the season to get started the players look to be in great shape.

I would guess bad season after bad season and what you get are low turn outs for games and events.

Agreed. Hopefully, the Lakers start winning and the fans will come back. Plus, the weather was nice and there aren't many sunny weekends left before the cold invades.

Probably bad marketing by the athletic department as well.

Anything interesting on the Laker Hockey Show tonight? For some reason, the podcast isn't posted.

He did some of that on shows last season although not always being able to mention names. He especially likes that some of the new guys scored so well in playoffs for their respective leagues this past Spring. He also said the players are very anxious to get the season started. Overall physical conditioning is much better than at this point last year. Some discussion about Doug Holewa and Terry Barbeau. Doug has already been very busy on the recruiting trails with all the junior showcases going on this month. Gordy Defiel was the player on the show this week.

Actually Paul the Laker Hockey Show podcasts are almost always posted the night of the show, usually by 8 or 9pm. Someone either forgot or there was a malfunction of some kind.

Thank you for your interviews. I always enjoy listening to them.

Found this on the school's website today: Lakers at Huskies to be featured on "national" television. If you read the press release carefully, you'll notice whoever wrote it forgot what that "other" conference was called.

http://www.lssulakers.com/sports/m-hockey/2015-16/releases/ASN_promoHow many people actually get American Sports Network? The WCHA calling it "national" television may be quite a stretch.
