The Falcons return a cast of veterans and welcome a slew of freshman looking to improve upon last season, in which they finished the 2010-11 campaign with a 5-4 home victory over Lake Forest College.

CUW's schedule to open the season will be difficult as UW-Stout is receiving votes in the USCHO.com top-15 poll. The Falcons begin their home portion of the schedule against the defending national champions and No. 1-ranked St. Norbert College on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Ozaukee Ice Center. CUW then opens its Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association portion of the schedule with a home-and-home against No. 14 MSOE on Friday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m.
