PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- The puck drops for the second annual CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game on Thursday at Consol Energy Center.
Mark Johnson and Joe Mullen, both former members of the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins, will each coach a team. The game will feature two players from Pennsylvania, Philadelphia's Tony DeAngelo (Sarnia Sting, OHL) on defense and Wind Gap native Ed Minney (USNTDP, USHL) in goal. Both players, each considered "B" prospects on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list, will star for Team Mullen.
I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
