BCHL released Showcase schedule

Penticton Vees to open showcase against the Surrey Eagles then finish against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs

Dates and matchups are set for the third Bauer BCHL Showcase at Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre.

All 16 BCHL teams will come to the Fraser Valley Sept. 19 to 21 to start off the season with two games each that will count in the regular season standings. The first two games drew strong attendance from both NHL and NCAA scouts. The same is expected this year.

“The Showcase has proven to be a popular event for both the people looking for talent and also our teams and players,” said BCHL communications director Brent Mutis. “The chance for scouts to see all players under one roof in one weekend is extremely valuable and the City of Chilliwack has been an ideal host for this event each of the last two years.”
