2010-11 U.S. National Junior Sled Hockey Team to Compete in First International Exhibition Series of Season
Team USA to Face Canada in Three Game Set in Buffalo, N.Y.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The 2010-11 U.S. National Junior Sled Hockey Team will play its first international exhibition series of the 2010-11 season this weekend in Buffalo, N.Y.

Team USA will take on Canada's national junior sled hockey team tonight (Dec. 2) at 7:30 p.m. EST, Friday (Dec. 3) at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday (Dec. 4) at 4 p.m. at the Bud Bakewell Rink in Riverside Park.

The exhibition series against Canada marks the fourth gathering of the season for the U.S. National Junior Sled Hockey Team, which has held three previous training camps in Buffalo, N.Y., this fall. While Team USA has squared off against the Buffalo Sabres Sled Hockey club team multiple times, it has yet to face international competition this season.

"After several productive camps and exhibition games against club teams, we're excited to see how we match up on the international stage," said Gregg Marinari, head coach of the U.S. National Junior Sled Hockey Team. "I'm already proud of how far we've come this year, and this weekend should give us a good look at where we stand."

Game recaps will be available following the completion of each game here. For a complete 2010-11 U.S. National Junior Sled Hockey Team roster, click here.

Beck and Bryan Genovese (Oceanside, N.Y.) have each spent time with the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team this season as well ... Head Coach Gregg Marinari served as the assistant coach of the 2009-10 U.S. National Junior Sled Hockey Team ... Assistant Coach Kip St. Germaine is a three-time U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team member (1998, 2002, 2006) and most recently skated with the 2009-10 U.S. National Sled Hockey Team.
