The USA Under-18 Team suffered a 4-0 loss to Alaska Fairbanks on Saturday. This was after they defeated Alaska Anchorage 4-3 last Thursday. Their schedule doesn't get any easier as they face Michigan on Saturday.
A couple of college commitments from over the weekend.
Princeton received two commitments from the USHL. Eric Meland of the Lincoln Stars and Alec Rush of the Tri-City Storm committed over the weekend. Meland, a right winger had one goal in ten games last season. He didn't participate in the Fall Classic. There's no rush to bring Rush in as he will a Tiger in 2010. Last year, he played with Eden Prairie High School where he had siz goals and 14 assists. At the Fall Classic, he had no points in two games.
Boston College continues to add talent as got a verbal commitment from Cody Ferriero for the 2010 season who plays for Governor's Academy.
Taking Note has some WHL News. Will Luke Schenn be back with the Kelowna Rockets? He has had a very good pre-season so far for the Toronto Maple Leafs. He had a shootout goal last night against the St. Louis last night.
That's My Take
