2011 World U-20 championships

Buffalo is one of the leading contenders to land the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation World Under-20 championships. The other contenders are the Twin Cities and Grand Forks, which are both good hockey areas, but hopefully Buffalo gets the games.

According the Business First, the Buffalo area impressed the selection committee when they came to town. They even managed to get Amherst resident Scotty Bowman to push for granting the games to Buffalo.

This is still a few years away, but it would be awesome for an event like this to come to Buffalo, much like the frozen four was, when it came a few years ago.
