A walk towards MODO home arena Fjällräven Arena, nestled just outside the city center at a sort of pier next to the Gulf of Bothnia, provides further clues. The five flags of Sweden, USA, Russia, Slovakia and Latvia are flying high in the afternoon breeze, providing visitors with the five nations participating in Group B of the 2019 U18 World Championships of hockey.

MODO, feel free to give us some inside info 😉

Interesting team the US is fielding.  It includes 4 possible top 10 in Hughes, Turcotte, Boldy and Zegras, plus 2 more top 15 guys in Caufield and York. 2 more possible 1st rders in Knight and Vlasic, and a top 50 guy in Beecher.  Strong team.  No wonder they are the tourney favorites.

USA Hockey has really taken a serious upturn over the past 15 years.  I really think they've done a great job with their ADM.  Couple that with increased exposure and more kids in the US playing hockey and you are bound to see some success.

Boldy, has a legit shot of being our pick at #7.

Sabres should hire a coach with significant USNTDP experience or something.
