For scouting purposes, the NAHL Showcase is the premier event of its kind and is a yearly gathering for every NCAA program and NHL team as they get their first look at some of the best and brightest hockey talent North America has to offer. Last season over 330 NHL, NCAA and junior scouts attended the event.
The NAHL, the only USA Hockey-sanctioned Tier II Junior league boasting 23 teams from across North America, prides itself on the social maturity and skill development of student-athletes ages 16-20 with aspirations of advancing to collegiate and/or professional hockey. During the 2016-17 season, the NAHL set a new single-season record with 253 NCAA commitments, 70% of which were NCAA Division I commitments. In addition, five current NAHL players were selected in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
The Schwan Super Rink is the largest ice arena of its kind in the world. The state-of-the-art facility, a $21 million project totaling over 300,000 square feet, features eight sheets of ice under one roof. With all its varied amenities and services, the Schwan Super Rink is absolutely unique in the world of ice sport facilities.
It will be the first event of the season for the NAPHL, which will also be played in conjunction with the Showcase. Now entering its eighth season, the NAPHL is made up of 45 teams that compete at the 18U, 16U and 15U levels.
