SAULT STE. MARIE – Lake Superior State hockey coach Jim Roque’s contract will not be renewed for the 2014-15 season, LSSU Director of Athletics Kris Dunbar announced Tuesday.

Roque just completed his ninth season as the Lakers’ head coach and led LSSU to a 16-19-1 record. He had a career record of 136-165-46. He also served three stints with the Lakers as an assistant coach.


“I appreciate how much Jim Roque loves Laker Hockey and we thank him for what he has devoted to our program,” Dunbar said. “I wish him the best, but at this time we are choosing to move in a different direction with our leadership.”

A national search for Roque’s successor will begin immediately. -LSSU-
