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.
One could argue that John Moore should also be on the list. USHL to OHL.

And if you're listing Atkinson (who's outside of the Lake Michigan area mentioned), you might as well also mention Umberger.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
