Seamus Malone is in his second season with the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the United States Hockey League. The 5-foot-10, 165-pound left wing was part of NHL Central Scouting's Futures List as a player to watch for the 2014 NHL Draft from the USHL. Regarded as a skilled forward, Malone had six goals, 27 points and a plus-12 rating in 50 games for the Fighting Saints in 2012-13. Committed to the University of Wisconsin in the fall of 2015, Malone has offered to maintain a blog during his team's stay in Omsk, Russia, while competing in the 2013 Junior Club World Cup that runs Aug. 25-31.
My name is Seamus Malone and I play forward for the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the USHL. I am a native of Naperville, Illinois, am 17 years old, and am entering my second season with Dubuque. I am committed to the University of Wisconsin.
The Fighting Saints are currently overseas in Omsk, Russia for the 2013 Junior Club World Cup, a tournament in which we will get to square off with some of the world's best junior hockey teams. I was honored and want to thank NHL.com for allowing me to share my experiences overseas and during this upcoming season.
