SAULT STE. MARIE - Lake Superior State goal-scoring leader and MVP from last season Nathan Perkovich is likely to return for the 2008-09 hockey season according to LSSU head coach Jim Roque.

“I do expect him (Perkovich) to be back,” he said. “We had a little situation between the year he was drafted and he could have filed with the league on June 1 and force New Jersey to sign him, which he didn't do.”

There has been speculation that Perkovich would turn pro this summer and forego the remaining year of eligibility with Lake Superior State. Perkovich improved upon his point totals in his freshman season by leading the Lakers in goals scored with 17 and finishing third in points with 25 last season. Through two seasons he has 32-14-46.
