USA 8 Germany 2 (Video)

Great to see USA win today... Honestly, Germany is a really bad hockey team and I don't know what we can glean from the USA beating them 8-0 or Canada routing them 9-3? I am sure the Germans will again be in relegation round.

Both the USA and the Canadians were the far better teams and the Germans just don't have the talent that those teams have.

Players that stuck out for me for the Americans were defensemen Seth Jones and Jacob Trouba, they were men among boys, both will be big time players in the NHL probably next season.

The most impressive line for team USA, was the line of Sean Kuraly (Dublin, Ohio/Miami Univ.), Alex Galchenyuk (Milwaukee, Wis./Sarnia Sting) and Reilly Barber (Livonia, Mich./Miami Univ.) this line racked up an impressive three goals and five assists for eight points.

Keaton Thompson to UND in 2013 or 2014...

North Dakota Fighting Sioux men's ice hockeyImage via WikipediaBrad Schlossman is reporting that former Devils Lake and Fargo Force defenseman Keaton Thompson has given  UND a verbal commitment to play for the Fighting Sioux in either the 2013 or 2014 season. I had the pleasure of watching Keaton Thompson play during the EDC playoffs last February and I was impressed with Thompson's poise and puck carrying ability.
Brad Schlossman. UND Hockey Blog ---- UND has received a verbal commitment from Devils Lake defenseman Keaton Thompson, who will play for the U.S. Under 17 team.

Thompson is an offensive defenseman who is starting to accelerate his education, so he could come in 2013 if he’s ready. He just finished his freshman year of high school.
When I see this early verbal commitment by Keaton Thompson to the Fighting Sioux, the first question that pops into my mind after some of the recent de-comittments from former USDT players like J.T. Miller is do we have to worry that Keaton Thompson might change his mind and be scooped up by a CHL team such as the Plymouth Whalers,Kitchener Rangers and or the Sarnia Sting. Since Thompson is a North Dakota kid I hope not.
