PHOTOS: Cedar Rapids RoughRiders vs. NTDP Under-17 Team

On November 16, the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders topped by USA Hockey Arena for a battle with the NTDP Under-17 Team. It was the first of two ‘Carnival Night’ events in Plymouth, but the fun and games throughout the concourse didn’t keep the visitors from securing a shootout victory against Team USA. The RoughRiders’ roster features six Michigan names – Blake Pietila (Howell native, Michigan Tech commit), Jason Polin (Holt native, WMU commit), Max Sasson (Birmingham native, Maine commit), Andrei Bakanov (Oakland Jr. Grizzlies alum, Michigan commit), Liam Walsh (Victory Honda alum, Merrimack commit) and Mitchell Miller (Compuware/Honeybaked alum, North Dakota commit) – and they are all featured in the gallery. Michigan native Owen Michaels was also called upon to suit up for the NTDP for the contest – he was wearing No. 56. (Photos by Michael Caples/MiHockey)
