After a 14-year professional career, which included a Stanley Cup championship in 2004, John Grahame is beginning his coaching career in the USHL with the Sioux City Musketeers - the same place he played during the 1993-94 USHL season. He discusses the growth of the USHL, memories of playing in the League, and starting his coaching career.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 10th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2011-12. With 28 picks during the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, 18 NHL draftees on its rosters last season, and over 280 players committed to NCAA Division I schools during the 2010-11 season, the USHL is emerging as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.

It’s not just hockey. It’s the USHL.
