ADRIAN, Mich.--Nationally-ranked Adrian College (#2 D3hockey.com, #3 USCHO.com) will take a break from its NCAA Division III schedule on Saturday when the Bulldogs take on the National Team Development Program U.S. Under-18 squad. The opening face-off at Arrington Ice Arena is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
The Bulldogs come into this exhibition contest riding a five-game winning streak--tied for the second-longest in the nation--after a loss in the season opener. Team USA, meanwhile, is 7-11-2 overall including a 1-5-1 record versus NCAA opponents.
Adrian has traditionally held its own against Team USA that has a bevy of Division I verbal prospects and produced 59 NTDP alumni on National Hockey League opening-night rosters across 21 franchises. Team USA holds a slim 4-3 edge in the all-time series.
Per NCAA rules, results and statistics from this game do not count on Adrian’s historical record.
