USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program enters play this weekend with a 35-8-0-1 (W-L-OTL-SOL) record after the U18s swept their trio of games last week and the U17s split their weekend games. Last Wednesday, the day prior to Thanksgiving (Nov. 23), the U18s hosted Youngstown and skated to a 4-1 win. On Saturday afternoon, the U18s continued their Kroger College Series and defeated Boston University on the road (OTW, 6-5, Nov. 26), followed by another overtime win at Yale on Sunday (OTW, 4-3, Nov. 27). The U17s started their road trip in Youngstown with a loss (L, 6-1, Nov. 25) but rebounded with a win the following night for the weekend split (W, 3-2, Nov. 26).
The U18s get the weekend off while the U17s will host the Madison Capitols for a home series at USA Hockey Arena. Both Friday and Saturday's games will start at 7:00 p.m. ET.
