USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program enters play the weekend with a combined 35-10-1-2-0 (W-L-OTL-SOL-T) after the U.S. National Under-18 Team went two for two in a pair of 2020-21 Kroger College Series games against Adrian College and Milwaukee School of Engineering last weekend while the U17s split a USHL series against the Muskegon Lumberjacks on the road. The U18s downed MSOE, 5-0, at home before meeting Adrian College for the fourth time this season, skating to an 11-2 win. The U17s suffered a 9-4 setback against the Lumberjacks last Friday before earning a hard-fought 5-4 shootout victory to split.
The U17s host the Green Bay Gamblers in a two-game set at USA Hockey Arena this weekend. This weekend's contests mark the fourth and fifth meetings between the two teams this season. The U18s hit the road for a three-in-three series against the Youngstown Phantoms as they continue USHL play.
Both Friday and Saturday's home contests against the Gamblers are slated for 7 p.m. starts, and tickets for the game are available by visiting USAHockeyNTDP.com./tix or by calling the box office at 734-453-6400 x 396.
