The U.S. National Under-18 Team opens its season at home against the Indiana Ice
of the USHL on September 12 at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube before heading to Blaine,
Minn., for the sixth annual NAHL Showcase from September 17-20.
This would be interesting to watch if I had time to get to Ann Arbor (I loved Ann Arbor. It reminded me of Madison, Wisconsin. In both of these places my other half somehow seeked out his fellow countrymen without even knowing them, without knowing they even existed. He's weird that way.)
