When the U.S. world junior team heads outside in Buffalo, it will have a commemorative jersey. USA Hockey is set to unveil it.
The organization is holding a news conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday in KeyBank Center. The Americans will wear the special sweater when they play Canada on Dec. 29 in New Era Field as part of the 2018 world junior tournament.
USA Hockey will also announce a “special marquee event” to be held in Buffalo in September. No additional information was available, but the organization conducts its annual All-American Prospects Game that month. The event was held in Buffalo in 2012, 2014 and 2015.
The world junior tournament will begin Dec. 26 and run until June 5 with games in HarborCenter and KeyBank Center. Individual tickets are not on sale yet. Packages range from $690 to $1,550. Information is available at BuffaloWorldJuniors.com.
