With the news that the NHL will cancel the 2013 Winter Classic later today, hockey fans in North America are probably looking for something to cheer them up. Enter USHL Under-18 forward Kevin Labanc.

Let’s survive this lockout together: Share hockey video, news, stories with me on Twitter – @PeteBlackburn. See you guys on the other side.
