See below for the full release from the BCHL.
For the third straight season, the Bauer BCHL Showcase comes to Prospera Centre in Chilliwack and the dates and matchups are all set.
All 16 BCHL teams will come to the Fraser Valley Sept. 19 to 21 to start off the season with two games each that will count in the regular season standings. The first two Showcase events drew strong attendance from both NHL and NCAA scouts. The same is expected this time around.
"The Showcase has proven to be a popular event for both the people looking for talent and also the teams and players," said BCHL communications director Brent Mutis. "The chance for scouts to see all players under one roof in one weekend is extremely valuable and the City of Chilliwack has been an ideal host for this event each of the last two years."
