Hub City Tampa

    USPHL Hub City All-Star Game Event Provides Thrills At Three Levels

    By Joshua Boyd / USPHL.com 01/18/2021, 10:30pm EST

    Hub City Tampa provided the setting for the USPHL All-Star Game Event, held over two days on Sunday and Monday, Jan. 17-18. There were four total games played in the NCDC, USPHL Premier and USPHL Elite, the latter two levels seeing their first-ever All-Star games. 

    More than 40 NCAA Division I commitments and six players listed on the most recent NHL Central Scouting Players To Watch list were part of the event at the NCDC level on Monday. 

     

    NCDC NHL Prospects Game (2002-04 birth years)

    Boston Advantage forward and University of New Hampshire recruit Nick Ring scored two goals and two assists to lead Team National to a 10-5 victory. Colin Graf scored two goals and one assist.  

    Jersey Hitmen forward and St. Lawrence recruit Isaac MacLeod scored a pair of goals for Team American. 

    It was 4-2 after two periods, so the two teams exploded for nine combined goals in the third. 

     

    NCDC NCAA Top Prospects Game (2000-01 birth years)

    Connor Joyce's goal with 33 seconds remaining was the difference in the 7-6 victory for Team National over Team American, making it a National sweep for the two Prospects teams coached by the Boston Junior Bruins' Mike Anderson and Islanders Hockey Club's Tim Kyrkostas. 

    Joyce is a member of the Connecticut Jr. Rangers and a Boston College recruit.

    Kyle Lightfoot scored a goal and two assists for Team National while on the American side, Jack Dempsey (Boston Junior Bruins/Boston College) put up a 1-3-4 line. 

     

    USPHL Premier Hub City All-Stars

    Team American (representing the New England Division and some Mid-Atlantic teams) earned the 7-3 win. The Northern Cyclones' Danny Woods (2-1-3) was the leading scorer the game, while the hometown Tampa Bay Juniors' Cade Kujawski made 16 saves on 16 shots. 

    The Team American Player Of The Game was Mike Tersoni, of the Islanders Hockey Club, who had a pair of goals. 

     

    USPHL Elite Hub City All-Stars

    The Northern Cyclones' Marc Giordano was the National Team's Player Of The Game, scoring two of his team's goals in a 3-1 victory. 

    Connor Vittands (Cyclones) stopped all 19 shots he faced. On the Team American side, representing three Florida Division teams - the Tampa Bay Juniors, the Florida Eels and the Florida Jr. Blades - the Juniors' Tim Ruf scored the only third period goal that made it a one-goal game. 

    The United States Premier Hockey League is excited to announce its All-Star Games schedule for its January All-Star event.

    All of the USPHL All-Star Games listed below will take place at AdventHealth Center Ice in Wesley Chapel, Fla., on Sunday, Jan. 17, and Monday, Jan. 18.

    The USPHL anticipates four fast and exciting contests over the two days featuring the top players competing in Hub City Tampa games in the NCDC, USPHL Premier and USPHL Elite Divisions.

    NHL scouts, NCAA coaches and fans will see more than 40 NCAA Division I committed players competing at Hub City Tampa.

    Additionally, there are more than 10 NCDC players in heavy consideration for the upcoming 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

    Hub City Tampa Schedule

    The United States Premier Hockey League is proud to announce its plans to bring teams from across its coast-to-coast footprint - the largest in all of North American Junior Hockey - to Tampa, Florida, for a Hub City concept with the health and wellness of players and staff as a top priority. The USPHL is partnering with Saddlebrook Resort (“Saddlebrook”), a multi-dimensional Tampa Resort and Conference Center, and AdventHealth Center Ice, a state-of-the-art 4-sheet, full-service ice hockey facility, to provide our teams a dedicated environment to execute our high-performance training and competition model and provide our players a tremendous opportunity to showcase their talents to all the professional and collegiate programs in the country.


    Saddlebrook and AdventHealth Center Ice provide the USPHL Coaches and Staff all the necessary facilities to execute the USPHL Player Development Model in a contained, safe environment. Each week, USPHL Teams will have multiple on-ice practices, continue their off-ice strength and conditioning regiments, and have team and one-on-one video analysis. Dedicated space will be provided for all online/virtual students to ensure uninterrupted learning. Equally important, the Hub City Event will provide players a competitive 20-game schedule not currently available to them due to ever-changing travel restrictions across the country. All games will be carried on the new USPHL/HockeyTV channel set to be launched on January 1st.

    The Hub City Concept provides a unique opportunity for the USPHL to isolate its players at Saddlebrook while away from the AdventHealth Center Ice, resulting in a safe atmosphere for all the athletes. Saddlebrook Resort has made a name for itself as one of the nation’s preeminent training facilities for athletes and features two adjacent fitness centers that total over 6,000 sq. ft., multiple volleyball and basketball courts, and a FieldTurf training field, along with three swimming pools, two Arnold Palmer signature golf courses and a championship tennis complex. Team building and non-hockey experiences will be situated solely at Saddlebrook.

    All USPHL safety protocols addressing the concerns surrounding the dissemination of COVID-19, including, but not limited to, guidelines regarding travel, facility management and any hockey/sport-related policies will remain in effect. The USPHL will have trained medical staff on site throughout the duration of the Hub City Event.
