Men's program[edit | edit source]

The men's hockey program was founded in 1965. The team had been in Division II and had also been a member of the American Collegiate Hockey Association at different times until the program became a member of the NCHA in 1992. They remained in the conference until 2009. The team moved to the Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association in 2009 and came back to the NCHA in 2013 when the conferences merged.

Arena[edit | edit source]

The team has been based out of the Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse since it was converted into a hockey rink in 1968 when the college opened the Lake Forest College Sports and Recreation Center. Prior to the conversion the team played outdoors.
