Housley, McClanahan excited to see talent at USA Hockey prospects game

Phil Housley and Rob McClanahan will get an up-close look at 40 of the top American-born prospects in hockey when they coach in the USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game. The former Sabres participated in a conference call this afternoon to discuss the showcase, which will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday in First Niagara Center.

Housley and McClanahan marvelled at the growth of USA Hockey, with Housley giving credit to McClanahan's 1980 gold medal-winning Olympic team. The coaches are looking forward to seeing the talent of the draft-eligible players and said they will encourage them to have fun while playing a team-orientated game.

The pair also talked about their memories of Buffalo, with their first games being the highlights.
