One of the best hockey tournaments gets underway today. The B’s are well represented: USA: Trent Frederic (center, ‘16 first round), Ryan Lindgren (defenseman, ‘16 second round), Jeremy Swayman (goalie, ‘17 fourth round) Finland: Urho Vaakanainen (defenseman, ‘17 first round), Joona Koppanen (forward, ‘16 fifth round) Sweden: Oskar Steen (forward, ‘16 sixth round) The US enters as defending champs and probably slight favorites. They play Denmark at 8:00pm tonight. I believe NHL Network will carry the game. They play Canada on the 29th at Ralph Wilson, which is cool but kind of a bummer it’s not on the traditional NYE spot.
