McKeen's has Q & A's with Cedar Rapids' Kent Patterson and Waterloo's Joe Howe.

The latest rumor on the state of the Ohio Junior Blue Jackets has them moving to The Ice Zone in Boardman for a year until the Youngtown Steelhounds' lease expires, whereby they'd relocate there.

There may have already been a USHL decision on this, but I have yet to hear it.
