Fans are reminded that the 2017 Old Dutch – MJHL Showcase will take place on December 11-13 at the Bell MTS IcePlex. This is the 14th consecutive year which the MJHL has staged this event.
Each club will play two regular season games during the Showcase event which aids in providing the players an opportunity to showcase their talents through playing meaningful mid-season games. The full schedule can be viewed on the MJHL website.
“This event has generated significant interest among scouts from both professional hockey to college levels,” MJHL Commissioner Kim Davis said. “For many players, our Showcase is a highlight to their season. It allows them to showcase their talents with dozens of scouts evaluating.”
Davis says many fans from around the league travel to Winnipeg to take in the Old Dutch Showcase, as they have the unique opportunity to watch all 11 MJHL teams in action.
