May 29, 2013

U.S. National Inline Team member Nielson Arcibal played two seasons for the Texas Tornado from 2005-07.

USA Hockey announced today the 15 players that will comprise the 2013 U.S. National Inline Team that will compete at the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation World InLine Championship in Dresden, Germany, June 2-8.  
Team USA has reached the gold-medal game in three of the last four world championships, most recently winning the gold medal in 2010. Last year, the U.S. claimed fifth place.
The team includes five players who are alumni of the North American Hockey League (NAHL).  That list includes goalies Jerry Kuhn (Wasilla Spirit/Youngstown Phantoms/Compuware Ambassadors) and Nick Maricic (USNTDP), defensemen Nielson Arcibal (Texas Tornado) and Rafael Rodriguez (Santa Fe RoadRunners) and forward Junior Cadiz (Wenatchee Wild). 
"There was a great depth of talent when selecting this year's team," said Dan Brennan, general manager of the U.S. National Inline Team. "We have a great mix of youth and veterans and we're excited to compete in Germany next month."
The roster is highlighted by eight players that were members of the 2012 U.S. National Inline Team, including goaltenders Jerry Kuhn (Southgate, Mich.) and Nick Maricic (Alta Loma, Calif.); defensemen Rafael Rodriguez (Oceanside, Calif.), Greg Thompson (Bayport, N.Y.) and C.J. Yoder (Colorado Springs, Colo.); and forwards Junior Cadiz (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Travis Noe (Thousand Oaks, Calif.). Additionally, Jami Yoder (Hersey, Pa.), who served as an assistant coach for last year's team, will join the roster as a defenseman this year.
