SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. -- Division I newcomer St. Thomas will look for its first-ever victory against CCHA foe Lake Superior State in a weekend series at Taffy Abel Arena.

Lake Superior State (0-0-0 CCHA, 1-3-0 overall) is coming off a season where it won the WCHA regular-season title and earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 1995-96 season.

The Tommies (0-2-0, 0-4-0) were swept by Northern Michigan last weekend.
