Here's the problem I see with US population growth and hockey. Their population growth is mainly through their immigrant population which does not play hockey. So yes their population keeps getting bigger but the rate of people picking up hockey...I dunno if it's as big. And of course they will increase but not at the same rate as population increase or even a decent fraction of it.
In Canada of course it's expensive and very difficult for immigrants to pick up hockey but their next-gen kids are doing it a lot now whereas in the US those 2nd generation and later kids are picking up other sports.
