USA Hockey is offering discounted seats for this event through this Sunday to NTDP season ticket holders -- the box office called me yesterday. I reserved our two seats for the event. I doubt it will be a big attendance draw on a Monday night, though -- even on a holiday (Martin Luther King Day).
When it's 2 weeks before the showcase & they've sold all of 100 seats, your STH discounts may not seem like such a bargain while they're handing out free tickets at the local schools. But hopefully you've secured a prime viewing location.
Yes, our season ticket seats are at center ice. Tickets for this event only cost me $12 each, so it's still quite cheap and about the same as going to a movie.
The organization really hasn't been giving away tickets locally since relocating here to Plymouth from Ann Arbor. We would actually like them to start doing that -- maybe it would get more people in the arena. Attendance is much lower than when the Plymouth Whalers (OHL) played here, except for a few special events. Of course, it's higher for the NTDP compared with when they were in the tiny Ice Cube arena in Ann Arbor, so it's all relative.
Wish this game were on the weekend.
Monday Jan. 20th, 2020 is MLK Jr. Day. So for some folks, it is on a "weekend."
Yeah with work the next morning and driving in from three hours wouldn’t work but that is nice if you are local.

Just got back from the game. The first period was pretty entertaining, bu the final two periods dragged a little. Team USA (aka Team Knuble) won the game rather easily 6-1 over "Team Gomez" (aka the USHL All-Star team). There were a crap-load of scouts in the building -- they may have outnumbered the fans. The most annoying thing was the game was broadcast on the NHL Network, and we had to endure normal "NHL TV" type of commercial timeouts. The game dragged because of that -- we normally have no TV timeouts, which is refreshing compared with major sporting events. The network also had a huge truck with a satellite dish parked right behind the building, blocking the parking spots I usually use for a quick exit from the parking lot.
Thanks for the wrap-up, @Whalers Fan.
