The United States Hockey League announced Tuesday it will return to Pittsburgh in September for the annual DICK’S Sporting Goods Fall Classic.

For a fourth consecutive year, the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry Township will host the USHL games from Sept. 26 to 29.

All 16 USHL teams will play two regular-season games.

“The Fall Classic has evolved to become a priority scouting event that provides all 31 NHL clubs an initial look at some of the top talent available for the NHL Draft playing at one site over four days of entertaining and competitive games,” Dan Marr, director of NHL Central Scouting, said in a release.

The Fall Classic also will include an invitational youth event with teams from the 14U, 15U, 16U to 18U levels. USHL team scouts and coaches from college hockey and other junior hockey leagues will attend the youth event.

Denny Scanlon, USHL deputy commissioner, said more than 300 scouts were in attendance last year.

Ticket information for the Fall Classic has yet to be released.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
