Well, be that as it may, that simply means that we have a nice Midwestern flair, with no accents and a tendency to end sentences in prepositions.

Just looking at the Americans currently on the roster:
Jack Johnson went the USNTDP route, and enrolled at Michigan.
Jared Boll went from the USHL to the OHL.
Mark Letestu isn't American, but he played at Western Michigan after the AJHL.
James Wisniewski went from the NAHL to the OHL.
Cam Atkinson went from high school to Boston College, with a brief stint in a county jail in between.
