The 2013-2014 Great Lakes Junior C schedule was released this week and the Wallaceburg Lakers will have a busy first week. The Lakers will be a part of three home openers, including the season opening game Tuesday, September 10, when the defending champion Essex 73s welcome the Lakers to town for their banner raising ceremony.
The next night, the Wallaceburg Lakers will welcome the Dresden Junior Kings to Memorial Arena, for their September 11 home opener. Wallaceburg will then travel to Blenheim for the Blades home opener Sunday, September 15.
Wallaceburg is looking to climb out of the basement of the Great Lakes Junior C loop after finishing last in 2013. The Lakers will begin that process this weekend as they open their mini-camp at Thames Campus in Chatham.
The Lakers will be hosting four home games this season on Walpole Island, with the first scheduled for October 3.
