The United States Hockey League (USHL) has announced that online fan balloting for a spot on the league's 25th Anniversary Team is open at www.ushl.com.
Eighteen current Gophers played in the USHL, and numerous Gophers of the past developed their talent in the USHL. Now is the time to get online and vote. Will current Gopher Thomas Vanek, who played at Sioux City, make the team? What about the great Gophers of the past, or freshman like Ryan Potulny and Danny Irmen?
Followers of America's Tier I League will have the opportunity to help select which players
will make the 25th Anniversary Team, which will be announced at the 2004 USHL Prospects / All-Star Game in Lincoln, Neb., on Feb. 3.
"We think this is an exciting chance for everyone who has watched the players in this league to have a say in who we recognize as the all-time best," said USHL President Gino Gasparini. "And it should create some interesting debate when people compare generation to generation."
One player on the team, consisting of eight forwards, four defensemen and two goaltenders, will be the fans' choice as the leading vote getter in the USHL's online balloting.
Make your vote count by visiting www.ushl.com.
