Left wing 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-handed shot, who was born in Naperville, Ill., is a "B" rated skater on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list 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 stay in Pittsburgh for the CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game at Consol Energy Center on Sept. 26.
I just finished my morning skate in preparation for tonight's All-American Prospects Game and had a blast.
We ate dinner at the rink [on Wednesday] with the coaches and staff involved and even got to tour one of the locker rooms here at Consol Energy Center. It was totally awesome. For dinner, I had some pasta, chicken and some salad. That's my usual standard meal on the day before a game.
