When the games shift back to Joe Louis Arena in 2014, Ferris State will be the fourth participant, in the 50th anniversary of the Great Lakes Invitational.

In 2015, Northern Michigan will round out the four teams participating in the GLi, and then Western Michigan will return for 2016.

“We’re excited to be able to renew some in-state rivalries at the GLi in the coming years,” said Michigan Tech athletic director Suzanne Sanregret in a statement. “The Detroit Red Wings, Olympia Entertainment, Michigan and Michigan State have been great partners with Michigan Tech over the years. We look forward to adding to the great tradition and history of the tournament.”

    The GLI hung on way too long to its “national tournament” desires at the expense of its fiscal success. It was one thing in the late 80s and early 90s when they were getting 18k for championship games, but those days are long gone. Plus FSN only shows the championship game (or the third place game if scUM or MSU play in it, LOL) nowadays, so why would Tech insist on passing up in-state schools like Western, Northern, Lake State and Ferris in favor of schools like Rensselaer, Harvard and Colorado College? All those schools obviously have massive Metro Detroit fan bases. While it is fine to bring top 10 school every few years or so, it’s important to the tournament and to Olympia and Detroit to have the local schools involved.
