Sioux Falls Stampede defenseman Chad Duchesne and goaltender David Jacobson have been named USHL Players of the Week. It's the first time this season two players form the Stampede have earned the award in the same week.
Sioux Falls native Zeb Knutson scored twice and Dennis Kravchenko added an assist to help lead the United States past Russia 8-3 in the first game of the World Junior A Challenge in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia on Tuesday.
Tony Calderone and Connor Valesano scored and Art Brey made 16 saves to give the Sioux Falls Stampede a 2-1 victory over the Fargo Force Saturday night at the Sioux Falls Arena. It was the Herd's first home win of the season.
