The WSI events draw the top teams and talent from Europe and Russia, including several National program teams. Teams such as Ak Bars, CSKA, Latvia, Sweden, Finland, Ural, Germany, Team Austria and more will be in attendance.
In addition to a world class hockey tournament, the WSI events provide a unique cultural experience touring these world class cities.
"The Boston Jr. Bruins  are one of the strongest AAA programs in the world and we are thrilled to partner with them to bring teams to Europe. We have played their teams at tournaments over the last decade and have gotten to know them and how they operate over the last four years during the Brick tournament," Director Terry Moore commented. "We feel that taking elite players from the Minnesota area along with elite players from the Boston and New England area will provide the players not only a strong team to play on at these international events but also a special experience with players they normally compete against."
"The team will play under the USA Stars name with red, white, and blue jerseys but with a Blades and Bruins patch on each shoulder," Moore continued
