The Junior Hockey News Showcase Series is returning in April of 2023. After a two-year COVID induced hiatus, players and teams will once again gather together for what has always been the most successful player signing and commitment event in North America.
The showcase series has been known for not only the number of scouts that attend, but the contracts, tenders and draft commitments that are made at the event.
The showcase series is a result-oriented program. Brining players, coaches and scouts together in an environment where commitments are made for the following season.
Designed to save players and parents from having to travel to try-outs all summer, these events allow for players to proceed right to a roster position, draft position or main camp.
The benefit to this is measurable in multiple ways.
Most important, this eliminates traveling to multiple camps all summer and allows the player to stay home and train properly to be prepared for next season. Time in the gym in the summer is where advancement is earned in the coming season.
When you are not going to camps all summer, you are saving thousands of dollars that can be better spent on training and nutrition.
With massive Tier II expansion coming in 2023, this is the first event where those new teams will be able to see you and talk to you directly before they draft. This is where those Tier II relationships will begin and where an opportunity to advance will be present.
Location. Boston and Denver. Two of the hottest hockey markets in North America. The concentration levels of scouts in these area’s from across the United States and Canada is unrivaled.
Each event is limited to 132 players per group. Only two goalies per team with six teams per group. 25 minute stop time halves.
Presentations from leagues will take place to educate players on their options and opportunities. Other speakers within the hockey industry will also be available to give presentations.
All games will be streamed live, and statistics updated live. All player profiles will be published on the junior hockey news, and complete player resume’s will be provided to all scouts attending in a secure digital format.
As a policy, TJHN always leaves the scout list out at each event so players and parents can be aware of exactly who is attending, and which organizations are involved. This list is continually updated and always available.
$50 of every early bird October registration will be put toward the purchase of equipment for Ukraine players who have been displaced from their homes due to the war.
Stay tuned for more information as the showcase series website is moving to a statistic driven platform over the coming weeks, and we will be announcing more partners in the coming days.
