After more than two years of dormancy, the United States of Hockey is back just in time for the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship. It was exactly six years ago today (really?) that I published the first post on this little website and it’s been a wild ride ever since.
As some of you may know, I am no longer with CBS Sports, which is the job that ultimately took me away from this little passion project. It was a mostly expected and amicable split. That said, your ol’ pal is still trying to figure out the next move and since I have some time — especially with the World Juniors coming up — I decided to pull off the drop cloths, sweep away the cobwebs and turn the lights back on here.
My plan for right now is to only run the blog through the end of World Juniors. So maybe don’t call it a comeback, but it’s definitely an exciting limited engagement for me and I hope you’ll enjoy what I have to offer.
In addition to the World Juniors coverage, which probably won’t be as intense as it used to be due to time constraints and having two kids now, I’m going to try to hit on a few topics relevant to the old USofH audience. So if you’re a longtime reader or even if you’re new, there’s going to be something for you here.
Coming soon, a preview of Team USA’s World Junior camp which gets going Friday in Buffalo.
It’s good to be home.
Cool, will be following.
So glad you’ll have WJ coverage! (Even tho the 2 guys playing from my OHL team are from Canada and the Czech Republic!) You will have at least one faithful reader!

Hooray and Thank you to the Hockey Gods for allowing this to occur
Love your insights Chris. Awesome to hear you’re back (permanently, c’mon) and will be joining us avid hockey fans for the best tourney each and every year. Go USA!!
