GLI teams surprise Little Caesars youth team at practice in Detroit


The members of the 2008 Little Caesars boys’ team received quite the surprise during their practice on Dec. 17, when members of three Michigan-based Division 1 college hockey programs showed up at the BELFOR Training Center inside Little Caesars Arena. To help promote the Great Lakes Invitational, players and coaches from Michigan (Will Lockwood, Nick Blankenburg and assistant coach Kris Mayotte), Michigan State (Butrus Ghafari, Tommy Miller and assistant coach Chris Luongo) and Ferris State (Jake Willets, Hunter Wendt and Cameron Clarke) showed up to skate alongside the LC team and have some fun. Check out MiHockey’s photos from the practice below, as well as video interviews with three of the student-athletes. (Photos by Michael Caples/MiHockey)
