The Tri-City Storm (43-10-3-1) have clinched the Anderson Cup, awarded to the USHL's best regular-season finisher.
The Storm lost in overtime to Sioux City on Friday night, however they still secured the best regular-season record due to a Muskegon Lumberjacks loss.
This is Tri-City's second Anderson Cup title in team history, as they previously won it during the 2003-04 campaign, when they posted a 43-12-1-4 record.
With this victory the Storm also successfully secured themselves home ice advantage for the duration of the playoffs.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 17th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2018-19. The USHL had a record 45 players selected at the 2018 NHL Draft, more than any junior league in the world, and more than 400 players on team rosters last season committed to NCAA Division I schools, further establishing the USHL as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.
