NACHC Rosters Announced

Both U.S. and Canadian rosters have been tentatively set for the fourth annual North American College Hockey Championships, to be held April 15 and 16, 2000. Saturday’s game will be played at 7:30 pm at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan, with Sunday’s contest at 2:00 pm at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario.

The U.S. roster is made up entirely of players with no remaining NCAA eligibility. 19 schools are represented, with no more than two players from any one program. Colgate, Colorado College, Maine, Michigan State, Niagara and North Dakota each placed two players on the squad.

All players hail from NCAA Division I programs except for AHCA Division III Player of the Year Steve Aronson from St. Thomas and alternates Marc Bellemare from NCAA Division III champion Norwich and David Haimson of Williams.

There are ten Canadians on the U.S. roster. The event is co-sponsored by the American Hockey Coaches Association.
