Spring Eastern Showcase Makes a Return to Haverhill
For the third time in program history, the Valley Jr Warriors will serve as host of the Spring Eastern Showcase.
This annual showcase, which brings together a field of the best Junior A teams from across the country, will be held on May 14-17, 2009 at the Haverhill Valley Forum.
The Eastern Showcase, sponsored annually by the EJHL, has become a destination for junior-level teams and players looking to showcase talent in front of top professional, junior and collegiate coaches and scouts. In its two years of hosting, the Valley Jr Warriors have welcomed scores of coaches from Division I through Division III colleges, scouts from the National Hockey League (NHL) and coaches and administrators from the top junior hockey teams in North America.
"We are excited to bring the Eastern Showcase back to our facility in Haverhill for a third straight year," said Andy Heinze, coach of the Valley Junior Warriors "A" team. "These events are not only a great opportunity for our players to compete against some of the best teams in the country, but it's also a chance for our organization to show our ability and willingness to host such premier junior hockey tournaments."
This year's Spring event will take place on May 14-17. Over a four-day period, players from more than 40 teams will participate in a minimum of three games at the twin-rinks facility in Haverhill. Applications are now available.
