Attention Elite U14 – U18 Teams
The United States Hockey League (USHL), in conjunction with Wegmans, announced the inaugural USHL American Cup in Rochester, N.Y. from December 3-5, 2021.
“We are incredibly excited to bring the USHL to the East Coast with the American Cup this winter,” said USHL President and Commissioner Tom Garrity. “We know the East Coast is a great hotbed for youth hockey talent and we’re looking forward to bringing a top-end youth hockey event to Rochester.”
As part of the American Cup, a pair of USHL teams will also make the trip East as the Green Bay Gamblers and Youngstown Phantoms will play a pair of games during the event on December 3 and 4. Both games, played at Bill Gray’s Regional Iceplex, will count towards the USHL regular season standings with each team playing as the home team for one game.
“Wegmans is delighted to partner with the USHL in the inaugural American Cup,” said Wegmans Food Markets CEO Colleen Wegman. “The selected tournament name, in part, pays tribute to Rochester’s rich hockey history as the home of the American Hockey League’s Rochester Americans. Rochester has evolved into a hockey hotbed and we are looking forward to sharing the experience with participating players, families and fans.”
The American Cup event will feature a youth hockey component with teams at the 14U, 15U, 16U and 18U levels. All USHL American Cup youth games will be played at Bill Gray’s Regional Iceplex and Rochester Ice Center.
