The 24 player PWHPA ‘All-Star’ team that will play inside the USPHL’s ‘Hub City Tampa’ has its schedule! The team will arrive on Monday, January 4th and will practice on both January 5th and January 6th before taking the ice for game action on January 7th.
That first game will be against the USPHL Premier’s Tampa Bay Juniors and will take place at 12:30 pm. The team will then play in five games against USPHL NCDC competition.
