NA3EHL Fall Showcase begins today
October 8, 2015
The first of two 2015-16 North American 3 Eastern Hockey League (NA3EHL) Showcases, presented by Easton Hockey, begins today. This season marks the second straight year the NA3EHL will hold two league-wide Showcases, which features some of the best junior talent in the United States. The event will be played from October 8-11 at the Skate 3 Ice Arena in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts.
All 13 NA3EHL teams will play between two and three regular-season games at the Showcase, which is one of the most well-attended and scouted events of the entire season for the league, attracting college and junior scouts alike. The Skate 3 Ice Arena is home to the New England Stars of the NA3EHL and features three regulation ice surfaces. It features a pro shop, pizza café and is not only home to the Stars, but several youth and High School Ice Hockey programs in the surrounding area of Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
“Having all 13 teams in one building makes for an exciting event from everyone,” said NA3EHL Commissioner Denny Scanlon. “This a great opportunity for players and fans to come together and enjoy some great competition. With the games counting for valuable points in the regular season standings, the action should be enjoyable to watch and is a unique opportunity that allows us to celebrate the players.”
All the games at the NA3EHL Showcase will be broadcast live on FASTHockey.
In addition, NAHL Central Scouting will be in attendance, which is led by Craig Barnett, Director of Player of Personnel for the NA3HL, NA3EHL and NAPHL. NAHL Central Scouting was created and developed in large part due to the growth and popularity of the NAPHL, NA3HL, and NA3EHL, which have experienced record player movement in recent seasons. NAHL Central Scouting will continue to be a presence at all NAPHL, NA3HL, and NA3EHL events and showcases, as well as, the NAHL Future Prospect Tournaments and Combines.
