Scouts from various levels of the game, including U Sports, NCAA, CHL and NHL, are expected to attend as the league comes together to elevate the profile of its players.
“Last year’s relaunch of the showcase was the first step towards what is truly a leaguedriven initiative,” said MHL president Brian Whitehead. “We are sure that the City of Summerside will, as they have in the past, do an outstanding job of both hosting the rest of the league as well as enhancing the profile of our many talented players.”
Summerside has hosted a number of high-profile junior A hockey events, including the 1997 and 2013 Canadian championships. The city hosted the 2014 MHL draft and annual general meeting.
The Western Capitals are offering day passes to the event for $10 for adults and $3 for youth under the age of 17. Full tournament passes will be available for $15 for adults and $5 for those under 17.
“This will be a great opportunity to showcase the tremendous talent in our league to the various scouts at all levels,” said Phil Bridges, executive director of the Capitals.
The schedule will be announced in conjunction with the launch of the rest of the 2017-18 regular-season schedule.
