Lots of exciting hockey on tap in the coming weeks in the NCAA and the U19/U16 Nats just around the corner too starting April 6-10. I heard Assabet U19 was eliminated this past weekend - wow! :eek:
The schedule is up on USA Hockey site and some teams are listed but not all. Who are the teams? Early favourites? Players to watch for?

With NCAA Championships ending does anyone want to weigh-in and start some banter on the USA U19/U16 Nationals which start a week from Wednesday in Detroit? Who will be contenders for the titles? Are there underdogs to look out for? The schedule and teams are now set, should be an exciting five days of hockey showcasing many of the up and coming female players of the future!

Don't forget that there is a Tier II Championship that just stared last night (March 29) in Anaheim.

It's March 29-April 3, same age groups as Tier I.

I hope one of the young ladies in that tournament makes it in D1 hockey. :)

It definitely was an exciting tournament. In the U19 division, the Lady Ducks made it to the Semi-Finals, but were beaten by Alaska 11-0.

Congrats to the Alliance Bulldogs 19 & Under as they beat a strong Alaska All Stars team in overtime 3-2!

The FastHockey video feed is absolutely terrible- dark, blurry, poor site lines. In this day and age you'd think USA Hockey would consider the quality of the venue when awarding bids.

Can someone point me to a link to the event. Thanks.

I agree that the Fast Hockey Feeds are a ripoff (camera autofocus on throughout the games causing the camera to focus on the fishnet above the glass as well as a lousy camera location and bad camera operator), but that is just part of the issues I have seen. The rinks where the games are being played are pathetic with almost no spectator seating and where did they find the Refs. My oh my, USA Hockey you should be ashamed of the way this looks to everyone that is attending or trying to watch on Fast Hockey.

Congratulations to Colorado Select U19's! Advance to the semi's with a win over The Washington Pride. Great game! Semi's are set to face off any minute. Colorado vs. SSM, and Little Ceasar's vs. Ct Polar Bears. Good Luck to all!

Congrads to Shattuck St Marys in the 4-1 victory over CO Select. Refs for this game were much improved. Fast Hockey video was also improved. Good Luck to Shattuck in the championship game tomorrow.

Little Caesars defeated Polar Bears to advance to the U19 final against Shattuck. Here are their records/team stats leading into the final. Catch the game on Fast Hockey on Sunday at 3pm ET. The two haven't met this season so it should be an interesting match-up.
Little Caesars 5 5 0 0 0 0 33 8 15
Shattuck St. Mary's 5 5 0 0 0 0 25 2 15

I guess USA Hockey has got us now. Instead of revamping the unfriendly website, now they just don't let us see it. Considering it's a pretty big weekend with it being Girls Nationals, you think there might be some interest in keeping the site going.

Yep, you gotta love USA Hockey. They can't list a final score. I guess everybody is in a hurry to bail out of Detroit. Thanks to Facebook. My kid tells me her friends at SSM are saying they won but no score is listed. If anyone has details that would be great. Thanks much.

SSM won 4-2 over Detroit in Final. Shattuck goaltender outstanding. Some timely goals from the Shattuck girls and a late 5 vs 3 goal by Detroit but a little too late. A pretty even game yet both teams turned the puck over a lot - likely tired after playing so much intense hockey in a short span of time. A well organized event yet the officiating was certainly questionable at times.

Hey Stick boy thanks for the info.....Big Red

Website is back. Could not help but notice that this is the first time in many years that Assabet is leaving Nationals with just one championship. I've been watching Girls Nationals for the better part of 10+ years and this seems like a first during this time span. U19's did not even qualify. Does this represent a "changing of the guard"? Is there finally some type of parity developing across the country?
