The USHL has partnered with the LI Gulls and Avalanche
The USHL Atlantic Challenge marks the first time that USHL teams will play games on the East Coast, a region that is sending an increasing number of players to the League. Participating teams and a full schedule for the event will be announced at a later date.
One of the venues for the USHL Atlantic Challenge has a particularly strong connection to the USHL - the new Ferraro Brothers Ice Center in East Meadow, New York, partly owned and operated by two of the League’s most-storied alumni - Chris Ferraro and Peter Ferraro. The twin brothers lit up scoreboards across the USHL during the 1990-91 and 1991-92 seasons. Playing for the Dubuque Fighting Saints, Chris led the League in scoring with 97 points (53g, 44a) in just 45 games in 1990-91, and earned USHL Forward of the Year. The following season, Peter led the USHL with 101 points - two more than Chris (49g, 50a) - in 42 games split between Dubuque and the Waterloo Black Hawks, capturing USHL Forward of the Year. Both were selected in the 1992 NHL Draft by the New York Rangers. Peter was chosen in the first round (24th overall) and Chris was selected in the fourth round (85th overall).
“The USHL meant a lot to my brother and I for the advancement of our careers on and off the ice and we are thrilled to host several teams right here in our hockey community,” said Peter Ferraro. “It will be a great opportunity to showcase the USHL brand in the East and we are proud to be part of this event.”more..
