Also not really sure I buy the idea that all those USA Hockey Membership increases are due to league expansion into non-traditional markets. USA Hockey is sort of its own thing right... markets itself, is active in communities. Just pointing that out.
If I didn't follow NHL hockey and prospects, I would have no freaking idea that USA hockey existed outside of the Olympics for a few weeks every 4 years. There is a reason youth hockey is growing at a MUCH faster rate in areas with NHL teams than in areas without them.
