USHL announces team list for U16, U14 Fall Classic tournaments in Pittsburgh

By @MichaelCaples –

As is becoming tradition, some of the top U16 and U14 teams in the country will once again be joining the USHL for the league’s annual Fall Classic in September.

The teams listed below – all selected by USHL Central Scouting – will have the opportunity to perform in front of scouts and fans alike at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex and Baierl Ice Complex from Sept. 27 through Oct. 1.

“We were very pleased with the overall performance of the youth events conducted last year as part of the USHL Fall Classic,” said USHL President and Commissioner Bob Fallen. “Our objectives were to create events that delivered strong ROI to the participating teams, exposed players and parents to Tier 1 junior hockey and to establish our tournament invitations among the most coveted in North America. We achieved our objectives and look forward to building upon a strong foundation for USHL events.”

Ten of the 16 teams at last season’s USA Hockey National Championships will be at the U16 tournament. Thirteen total states will be represented.

“We are extremely excited to host what is arguably the best youth tournament in the country,” said Doug Christiansen, USHL Director of Player Development and Recruitment. “It will give elite players, coaches and their families the opportunity to see the USHL firsthand while playing games against the best teams in the country in front of hundreds of scouts. To win this tournament, you will have be at your best for all five games. We can’t wait to get started.”
