USHLstuff.com is always looking for new or different Musketeer and USHL jerseys to add to the collection. If you have a jersey that you would like to sell please contact me through my E-mail link. Thanks!!!


The USHL announces that two new teams, The Madison Capitols and the Bloomington Thunder will be joining the league
 for the start of the 2014-15 season
.




 

**********Can You ID This Team Jacket!!!**********

This team jacket color and style was probably worn during the early or mid 80's. The Musketeer logo on the front is screened and
the player number on the shoulder is sewn.  The yellow material is a flat luster nylon material. I need your input if you have
any idea what season this was from.

 

Sioux City Eagles
Circa Late 60's
 
These picture just screams "Old Time Hockey". Taken in the upstairs locker room at the Audi, this photos shows several of the
Sioux City Eagle players either before or during one of their home games. Picture two, second from the right, is long-time
Siouxland Youth Hockey (SYHA) coach and referee Joe Pinard.


Did You know...
That for the first 4 years of Sioux City hockey we didn't have a Zamboni!!!

Left: An Auditorium staff member preparing the edges by hand. No gas edger yet!!!  Right: Staff members shovel away all the snow
from the ice. As tradition, this was done at the start of every game and between every period.


Two hot water carts sponsored by the Black Knight, a men's clothing store located in Sioux City and owned by then team owner
 Gary Lipschutz, provided the hot water that prepared the ice for the next period. Note: Notice the fence in place of glass.

 

2011 Inaugural Sioux City Musketeers Billy Danderand Cup

of the Musketeer organization for  40 seasons!!! He joined the team during the Musketeers first season in  USHL Senior League in 1972.
Billy also served the same duties with International Softball Congress's powerhouse teams Penn Corps & National Health Care.

USHL OVERVIEW & HISTORICAL TIMELINE
             
The United States Hockey League (USHL) is the top junior ice hockey league in the United States.  As of the 2012-13 season, it has
16 teams, consisting of players who are 20 years old and younger. The teams are located in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan Nebraska, North &
South Dakota, Ohio and Wisconsin.


It is strictly classified as an amateur league. Players are not paid for playing and this allows former USHL players to compete in NCAA college
 hockey (which does not allow players who have been paid athletes before college).

The original USHL was first established in 1945 and ran for six seasons. The modern USHL began play in 1961 and remained
 a semi-professional  league before it became an amateur junior league in 1979. Many league players have gone on to compete in college
   and professional  hockey. Every season the league continues to supply significant numbers of players drafted to NHL teams with USHL roots.


   
ANDERSON CUP CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY
The Anderson Cup is awarded annually to the United States Hockey League's regular season champion. It is named after
Harold Anderson, one of the founding fathers of the Midwest Junior Hockey League, which would eventually become
 the USHL. It has been awarded to the USHL regular season Champions since 1973. It Stands nearly five feet tall and cost over
$5000 to design and build.

CLARK CUP CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY
The Clark Cup is awarded annually to the United States Hockey League Tier 1 Junior Hockey Playoff Champions.
The Clark Cup was  named in honor of Don Clark, the long-time registrar of the Minnesota Armature Hockey Association.
Don also won the NHL's Lester Patrick Award for his contributions to hockey in the United States.

Prior to 1979 the United States Hockey League was classified as a senior/professional league. There were no age restrictions or player eligibility
requirements. The1979-80 season would be considered a transition year from senior pro hockey to a Junior A classification. 1980-81
would become the first official season of junior hockey.  In 2002 it would be elevated to Junior A Tier 1 level of play. 
Today it remains the best junior league in the United States, the level of play rivaling that of most Canadian junior leagues from
Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia.
