Wagner, Billitier to skate in AAPG

USA Hockey on Tuesday announced two additional injury replacements for the 2013 CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game, which will be held Thursday at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

Both replacements will play for the United States National Team Development Program's under-18 team this season. Forward Ryan Wagner will replace Connor Chatham on Team Joe Mullen, while defenseman Nathan Billitier replaces Johnathan MacLeod on Team Mark Johnson.

Wagner had 12 goals and 11 assists with the Chicago Mission under-16 team last season, and had one goal in five games to help the United States win the silver medal in August at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka Tournament. The 5-foot-8, 168-pound center is committed to the University of Wisconsin for the 2015-16 season.

Billitier (5-10, 170) earned a "C" rating on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list for United States Hockey League players eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft. He had three goals and five assists in 55 games with the USNTP U-17 team last season. He committed to the University of Notre Dame for next season, while his Canadian Hockey League rights are held by the North Bay Battalion of the Ontario Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
