Matthew Tkachuk was one of the best players in the NHL in 2022-23. He totaled 109 points in 79 games. While his team fell short he was a main reason they went as far as they did. Now Tkachuk is looking ahead at a possible reunion with a close family member.

Matthew And Brady United



In a recent article written by theScore Matthew Tkachuk talked about his goals for the future. He has two main goals that he hopes to complete in the near future. One involves playing with his brother again.

My No. 1 dream is to win a Stanley Cup. My No. 2 dream is to win a gold medal with my brother for Team USA, Tkachuk said.



These two goals are what would likely be the pinnacle for any combination of brothers in professional sports. The Tkachuks have not yet played together at the men's level for Team USA but thanks to a new announcement it could happen.

NHL Returns To International Hockey



The NHL recently announced that they have made progress toward a return to international hockey. There is a plan to return both to a World Cup of Hockey style tournament as well as the Olympics.

The United States is looking to become the biggest powerhouse in modern international hockey. In the past, the United States and Russia formerly known as the USSR have been the juggernauts of international hockey. With the creation of the USA National Team Development Program (USNTDP) the United States has brought several superstars to the game in recent years.

Americans like Jack Eichel, Auston Matthews, all of the Hughes Brothers, and of course Matthew, and Brady Tkachuk came from the USNTDP. During his recent interview, Matthew commented on his time at the USNTDP.
