Pittsburgh - This was a great event. Some of the interviews I conducted will appear on our upcoming Hockey Prospects Radio show on NHL Network Radio but for now here are some thoughts on some of these young players. I saw over 40 players so here are a few of them.
Ryan MacInnis - 6-3, 185 - C - Kitchener Rangers - He skates well for a big guy. His hockey sense could be a bit better when it comes to setting up plays. He has terrific puck pursuit. His dad, Al, is a Hall of Fame defenseman. Ryan’s shot is good, but not at Al’s level just yet.

The book Star-Spangled Hockey by Kevin Allen published by Triumph is an encyclopedia of USA Hockey. Kevin is one of the great sports writers out there and he’s an absolute expert on this subject. I know for sure because I’ve chatted USA hockey with him at more than one international tournament.
This tome covers 75 years of USA Hockey. I’ve been watching for quite a few years and I feel like the changes that I’ve seen is remarkable, but after reading this book it really makes me appreciate how far it’s come.

JR’s early life showed what kind of determination it takes for the family and the player to succeed and eventually make it to the NHL. Not always polite, but always truthful this tome shows why reporters like myself enjoyed interviewing him. Triumph has a real hit on their hands.
