Stretch Run Begins with New Faces

The second semester is upon us, and that means the stretch run for the hockey season. The Lions, who remain unranked but getting votes, have a 5 week run that sees them start off with 3 games vs. USC and UCLA before heading to San Jose for a showcase. The Lions will then face LBSU twice to finish out the regular season and head towards the conference playoffs. The Lions are sad to see Senior Trey Thalmann depart, having graduated from LMU a semester early. Also departed are Culp and Mora, but the Lions have added two talented forwards to the group for the 2nd semester. Ethan Fink returns to play his final semester as a student. Fink did not play the first semester as he works and travels with the LA Kings. Also joining the Lions will be a new freshman, Kory Medeiros. The team first skates this coming Monday.
