USHL vs QMJHL
Thanks to Marc Foster for mentioning this.
Omaha and Indiana will play exhibition games with the QMJHL (Quebec Major Junior Hockey League) this fall. It will be fun and interesting to see how this plays out. I have faith the USHL can go and play tough against the Q. It will be interesting to see how the USHL does against some Major Junior competition. Keep your eyes open for this because it's something that has never been done before (at least not to my knowledge) and should make for some exciting hockey.
Good luck to Omaha and Indiana with these games, and show them what the USHL is all about.
Omaha and Indiana will each play two games. They will be facing the Quebec Remparts and Rimouski Oceanic. These games will take place in Quebec and Rimouski in September. The Indiana Ice site also has a press release.
