USA Hockey names its finalists for 2011 WJHC hosts

From Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

USA Hockey announced today that it has narrowed the list of potential sites to host the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation World Under-20 Championship to (alphabetical order): Buffalo, N.Y., Grand Forks, N.D., and Minneapolis – Saint Paul.

Grand Forks was the last US city to host the event, so you would have to give the edge to Minneapolis-St. Paul and Buffalo.  To be honest, Minneapolis-St. Paul would be my choice to host the event.  The state loves its hockey, has a beautiful arena and the fan interest to go with it.
