28 BCHL Alumni to Take Part in Inaugural Great Northwest Showcase:

I’m looking incredibly forward to providing all of the play-by-play for the inaugural Great Northwest Showcase coming up this Friday and Saturday (December 28th and 29th) at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre in Burnaby.

The four team Showcase features three different levels of hockey: the host SFU Clan of the BC Intercollegiate Hockey League, the UBC Thunderbirds of the CIS, and the University of Oklahoma Sooners and the Arizona State Sun Devils of the American Collegiate Hockey Association.

All the details on the Showcase are available here: http://www.greatnorthwestshowcase.com

There are a ton of familiar names taking part as 28 players who have skated at least one game in the BCHL are sprinkled on each team’s roster. SFU leads the way with 12 BCHL alumni on its’ roster, while UBC is next with 11, followed by UO with three and ASU with two.

I’ll post more about the Showcase after Christmas, but here’s a breakdown of players with BCHL experience taking part.
