Friday was an eventful night for USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program, as the NTDP welcomed Olympic gold-medalist and hometown hero Megan Keller to Plymouth while they also said goodbye (sort of) to the Under-18 Team. Keller, a Farmington native, signed autographs for fans and took part in a ceremonial puck drop. In between, the NTDP Under-18 Team thanked their billet families before competing in their last home game at USA Hockey Arena.
Michigan natives Max Ellis, Tommy Parrottino, Jake Gingell, Dalton Messina and John Larkin helped spoil the party, as the Youngstown Phantoms topped the U18s 3-2 in the contest.
The NTDP still maintains its lead atop the USHL standings – Team USA has 77 points, three more than second-place Waterloo.
