NEW YORK – USA Hockey Executive Director Dave Ogrean will be the guest on tomorrow's edition of NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman on SIRIUS XM Radio.

Ogrean will discuss the second annual Hockey Weekend Across America, which begins Friday, Feb. 13 and runs through Sunday, Feb. 15. Hockey Weekend Across America celebrates hockey and those involved in the game at all levels and also seeks to expose the game to additional audiences to attract more players, coaches, officials, volunteers and fans to the sport.

Ogrean's booking on the NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman also coincides with the one-year countdown to the start of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. The Games represent the 30th anniversary of the U.S. 'Miracle On Ice' at Lake Placid and the 50th anniversary of the U.S. capturing the Olympic gold at Squaw Valley.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
