USA Hockey's NTDP to play in Plymouth in 2015-16

USA Hockey's National Team Development Program will have a new home in 2015-16.

After 18 years at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube in Michigan, the under-17 and under-18 teams will  train and play games at the 3,504-seat Plymouth Compuware Arena, which has been renamed USA Hockey Arena.

The arena, which is 20.5 miles southwest of Ann Arbor, will provide increased space and an ability to host future camps, tournaments and other events. USA Hockey executive director Dave Ogrean envisions the new venue someday hosting the Under-17 men's Five Nations Tournament, the women's Four Nations Cup and the Under-18 women's World Championship.

Rosen's mailbag - Aug. 26, 2015

Here is the Aug. 26 edition of Rosen's weekly mailbag, which will run periodically throughout the summer. If you have a question, tweet it to @drosennhl and use #OvertheBoards.

Let's get to it:

Do you think that Tomas Tatar or Gustav Nyquist have the ability/opportunity to hit the 40-goal, 70-80-point plateau? -- @purdstheword22

It's realistic to think that one of them could do it this season, but they're going to have to shoot the puck more than they did last season. I'd want to see each of them reach 250 shots on goal, if not more. Is it realistic for them to shoot that much? Why not? Dallas Stars forwards Jamie Benn (253) and Tyler Seguin (280) each had more than 250 shots on goal last season. San Jose Sharks forwards Logan Couture (263) and Joe Pavelski (261) each had more than 260 shots. Forwards Max Pacioretty (302) and Brendan Gallagher (254) each surpassed 250 shots for the Montreal Canadiens, who got 248 from Tomas Plekanec. Zach Parise (259) and Jason Pominville (252) each had more than 250 shots for the Minnesota Wild.

Tatar had 211 shots and Nyquist had 195 last season.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
