A total of 30 players with USHL experience competed in the CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game on September 29th in Buffalo, New York. The game featured top American-born prospects eligible for the 2013 NHL Draft.
Waterloo Black Hawks goaltender Cal Petersen did not allow a goal in 30 minutes of action for Team White in the contest while competing against Black Hawks teammate Eamon McAdam who was in goal for Team Blue.
Team USA forward J.T. Compher has been tabbed an "A" skater in NHL Central Scouting "players to watch" this season, meaning he is a potential prospect for the first round of the 2013 NHL Draft.
Dubuque Fighting Saints defenseman Michael Downing is also an "A" skater according to NHL Central Scouting as he begins his second season in the USHL.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 11th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2012-13. With 18 NHL Draft picks on team rosters and over 200 players already committed to NCAA Division I schools this season, the USHL has emerged as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.
