Team USA’s U18 squad has been on fire as of late, winning three in a row and five of their last six games in USHL competition, including a victory over the USHL-leading Chicago Steel on Jan. 21 and a 7-3 road victory over the Bloomington Thunder on Sunday to close out the month. Quinn Hughes continues to play well on the back end. The University of Michigan commit has tallied at least one point in nine of his last 10 games dating back to December 10, including seven points in his six games in January. The U17 team ended their month with a 4-2 victory over the Sioux Falls Stampede on Sunday. Team USA will only play three USHL games in February – February 17 vs. Chicago, February 18 at Youngstown and February 24 at Cedar Rapids.

The Storm ended January with three wins in their last four contests with a win over Team USA and two against Omaha, and they will look to ride that success into February. Adam Goodsir, who was named to the USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in early January, has quietly put together a very solid first USHL season. He is fifth among all rookies in scoring with 17 points (11G, 6A), and his 11 goals in third among USHL rookies. Odeen Tufto, who had two points (1G, 1A) on Tuesday against Omaha, has been a great add for the Storm, as he has seven points (3G, 4A) in six games since joining the team. Tri-City will also look to their special teams units to continue their recent winning ways, as the Storm sit in the top half of the USHL on both the power play (20.5% - 3rd in USHL) and the penalty kill (85.5% - 7th in USHL).
