Just surprised to see USHL teams drafting Canadian players, especially ones with Jr.A experience and college commitments.

I have seen a lot of Jr.A games in Canada, but have yet to see a USHL game so I am not sure on talent comparisons.

Would love to see a BCHL vs USHL exhibition series.
One reason that NCAA recruits more from the USHL is that they're American and a lot of NCAA schools pick Americans before Canadians.
