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.
