The inaugural CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game was a qualified success, with the on-ice action helping to overcome what was a sparse crowd attending this prospect showcase, a game that was won by Team McClanahan, 5-2.
Players taking part in the 2012 CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game will be under the scrutiny of scores of NHL scouts and GM's that will be in attendance. But one player may draw the attention of these interested observers more so than others, that player being defenseman Seth Jones.
Former NHL defenseman Phil Housley returns to the city where he spent eight of his 21 NHL seasons, only this time he'll be behind the bench rather than competing on the ice.
What has been an idea in the making for some time will now become reality tomorrow night as USA Hockey presents their first of what is expected to be an annual event, the CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game.
This year's Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, arguably the most prestigeous hockey competition in the under-18 category, was a disappointment for Team USA. Even though the Americans have an elite national team development program, they were able to produce just one, one-goal victory over Slovakia and three defeats in the group stage. Whatever the cause was, the offense still worked pretty well, which we could see in the game with Finland that ended 8-6 for Suomi.
