2010-11 World Juniors coming to Buffalo

by Chris

Gotta love it. Move over Detroit, now we’re really making an official push for the title of Hockeytown.

USA Hockey was still putting the finishing touches on the final details today, but it appears the best amateur hockey tournament in the world will be coming to Buffalo in two years.

The top governing body for hockey in the United States has scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon in HSBC Arena. It’s widely believed USA Hockey will announce that the 2010-11 World Junior Hockey Championships will be held in Buffalo. The tournament runs in late December and early January.

More to come later…

UPDATE: Just got an email from James Mirtle, he thinks it is a go as well. This is beyond huge.

    ACK!!!

    Speaking as a person who actually watched a hockey game between Finland and Latvia on my computer while cooking dinner back in May, I’ve reacted to this news in roughly the same way I reacted with each big signing the Sabres did over the summer.

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
