CAPTAIN PAULS ON NHL NETWORK
This evening, U.S. captain Josh Pauls (Green Brook, N.J.) will be calling into NHL Network's "NHL Now." Topics expected to be discussed include the team's success, the New Jersey Devils' having nine-year-old Joel Tapia from the Woodbridge Warriors Sled Hockey Team be the Junior Captain of the Game, and the upcoming 2018-19 USA Hockey Sled Classic, presented by the NHL, next February. Like Tapia, Pauls got his sled hockey start with the Woodbridge Warriors.
RECAPPING YESTERDAY'S OTHER U.S. TEAM NEWS
While the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team is here in Canada competing, two notable moments occurred yesterday for other U.S. national teams. At 4 p.m. ET, the U.S. Olympic Committee named the U.S. Women's National Team as its Team of the Month for the Team USA Awards Best of November honors on the heels of claiming its fourth consecutive Four Nations Cup title in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Just 40 minutes later, the 29-player preliminary roster for the 2019 U.S. National Junior Team was unveiled on NHL Network's "NHL Now." John Vanbiesbrouck, USA Hockey's assistant executive director of hockey operations and general manager of the team, called in for the unveil.
