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 don't know what to say, to be honest with you. You get a couple [goals], and it's pretty much a done deal. He's been great. I don't know how many times I have said this before: He's giving us a chance and that's all you really want.
