At the conclusion of the game between the U17s and Madison Capitols on Saturday, fans of all ages are invited out on the ice to skate with the Under-17 Team! Meet some of your favorite players, collect autographs on the team poster and have a blast skating with the future stars of the NHL.

Skate rentals are FREE, but limited in size and quantity and participants are encouraged to bring their own skates from home.

Team USA hosts its annual Teddy Bear Toss, presented by Orin Jewelers, as the U18s square off against Utica University on Saturday, December 10! After the U18s score their first goal of the game, throw your teddy bears or other stuffed animals onto the ice! All animals will be collected and donated to Salvation Army who will provide to local children in time for the holidays. You can bring your own bears to the rink or purchase them in the lobby of USA Hockey Arena for $5 apiece. 

Team USA will add to its donation to Salvation Army as we ring bells in the local area on Tuesday, December 6. Come out and see the boys and help fill the community with Christmas cheer at Holiday Market (Canton), Starbucks (Downtown Plymouth), Kroger (6 Mile/Haggerty or 10 Mile in South Lyon) or Walmart (Novi).

In our yearly December tradition, Team USA will play a morning game prior to Christmas break and let the building buzz with kids from local schools in the house!
