Travis Morgan, Musketeers CEO, “The Hot Shots program is something unlike anything else in the USHL. These young fans are no longer fans when they’re selected for this program, they become part of our team!  The players, coaches, and staff make sure they feel like they are a Musketeer and get the best experience possible. When you see the Hot Shots interact with the players in the locker room and see the faces light up on our players just as much as our Hot Shots, it’s a magical thing. We can’t thank Ann and the incredible staff at FVH for making this one of the best traditions in the entire league.”
