THERE ARE EIGHT MILLION STORIES in the naked city, and almost as many at this year's Toyota-USA Hockey National Championships. Since the puck dropped on the first tourna- ment back in 1950, National Championship week has always been a family affair, not just for the nuclear family but for the extended hockey family as well. It is an annual rite of passage where the hockey world comes together in the spirit of competition, sports- manship, fun and friendship. For some it was a first-time experience. For others it was old hat. But for both, it was the crowning achievement to a satisfy- ing season. As USA Hockey Magazine made the rounds from Amherst, N.Y., to Green Bay, Wis., to Salt Lake City and all points in between, we checked in with players, parents, coaches, volunteers and officials to get their take on what makes a National Championship more than just a tourna- ment, but an experience of a lifetime. It is through their eyes that we present a look at the 2015 Toyota-USA Hockey National Championships.
