“The league coaches as a group decided in June that the head coaches for this event should be appointed based on seniority and interest in the opportunity,” MJHL Commissioner Kim Davis said of the selection process.

“The same approach was taken when selecting the assistant coaches for the event. This is the first event of this nature and it’s expected that it will be done annually in Saskatchewan,” said Davis.

“The purpose of the event is to highlight the players with another Player Showcase event so that scouts can get a first-hand look at players in a highly competitive environment.”

Teams will play a total of two games over the two-day event.
