No. 5 Cyclone Hockey will play its first and only mid-week game of the year against junior college Williston State Tuesday evening at the Ames/ISU Ice Arena.

The Cyclones head into the matchup 8-1-1 after sweeping the Illinois State Redbirds over the weekend. The game won’t count towards the American Collegiate Hockey Association rankings.

The Tuesday showdown comes before the Cyclones host a weekend series against No. 3 Lindenwood. Coach Jason Fairman said the team will tinker with the lineups and probably put some Division III guys on the ice to avoid fatigue and injuries.

Cyclone Hockey’s focus remains on Lindenwood this week even with the midweek game.
