USA Roster for Jr A Challenge Announced

The Junior A Challenge will be held November 2-9, including two teams from Canada, and ones from Germany, Belarus and Russia along w/ the US team which has been announced. The event takes place in Camrose, Alberta.

Of note on the US team, is Madison native, and future Badger Craig Smith of the Waterloo Black Hawks. Congrats to Craig! People have been pretty down on Craig the past few seasons in the USHL, but he is starting off strong w/ 3-3-6, +4 through 4 games. Hopefully this is the breakout year for Craig and he brings that to Wisconsin next Fall and contributes right off the bat.

As was mentioned earlier on the blog (I think), Justin Schultz will be playing for Canada West in this event.
