The official North American Hockey League Robertson Cup Playoffs schedule has not been released by league officials, but the North Division semifinal playoff series between the Traverse City North Stars and U.S. National Team Development Program’s Under-17 squad has been set.

"We have had some tough battles with Traverse City this season," said Ron Rolston, head coach of the U.S. National Under-17 Team. "Competing in a playoff environment will continue to challenge our guys and prove to be great experience in the development of our players."

Game 2 is a night later in Ann Arbor, before the series comes to Centre ICE arena in Traverse City for dates on Friday, April 7 and Saturday, April 8.
