Monday News and Notes

USHL recognizes the alumni that were named All-Americans.

Hockey's Future interview with Jim McKenzie (Sioux Falls).

An article on former Green Bay Gambler, Nate Guenin.

He was drafted by the New York Rangers in 2002, but instead chose to attend Ohio State University. He played four years there in an athletic environment that is among the tops in the country.

“It was unbelievable,” Guenin said. “I don’t know if there’s another school that treats their athletes as well as Ohio State does. Just the facilities from the football stadium to the Schottenstein Center, the weight rooms, it’s unbelievable. Just first class. And you’re still getting a very good education. Hockey-wise we had three very good years.”
Also, there have been multiple former USHLers who have chosen to play in the 2007 World Championships. Those players include: Matt Greene (Green Bay), Keith Ballard (Omaha), Toby Petersen (Fargo-Moorhead), Andrew Alberts (Waterloo), and Brandon Bochenski (Lincoln). There are still many roster spots available, and other USHL alum like Mark Mowers, Jed Ortmeyer, Paul Stastny, and Yan Stastny. Congrats to those who have been named to the team, and hope you do well.
