Brett Skibba made his USHL this past weekend for the Green Bay Gamblers in the USHL. With the Jr. A challenge taking place this week, the USHL was in need of players. When Green Bay and Youngstown came calling for Skibba, an opportunity presented itself.
Skibba, who leads the Jr. Blues with 11 goals in 16 games, flew to Youngstown to play for them Wednesday night. Unfortunately because of Hurricane Sandy, Youngstown didn't lose their players which didn't allow Skibba to play. Upon returning to Springfield on Thursday, Skibba was asked to play for Green Bay during their weekend series.
Skibba played both games, recording an assist on the first goal Friday night and also a +2 rating.
