The Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) today announced the dates for the 2022 AJHL Showcase, which will be held from September 29th – October 2nd, 2022 at the Eagle Builders Centre in Blackfalds, AB.
The Eagle Builders Centre is a magnificent new facility and a great space for families to enjoy the exciting weekend of entertainment that the AJHL Showcase brings to a community. As the most centrally located AJHL team, fans from across the province will be able to make a short trip to take in the event and support their favourite team.
All 16 AJHL teams will compete in two regular season games at the 16th Annual Showcase, which attracts thousands of fans and over 200 members of the scouting community. A full schedule for the 2022 AJHL Showcase will be announced alongside the League Schedule in July 2022. Each of the 16 games will feature a rare interlock match-up between the South Division and North Division.
The annual showcase of AJHL talent draws coaches and scouts from each National Hockey League (NHL) team, NCAA Division I, II and III schools, as well as Canadian colleges and universities and the Canadian Hockey League (CHL). Immediately following the AJHL Showcase each season, the much-anticipated NHL Central Scouting ‘Players to Watch List’ is released in advance of the annual NHL Entry Draft.
“From live hockey to activities and spaces for kids and families, along with partnerships with Central Alberta tourist attractions, we aim to give fans making the trip to Blackfalds the chance to experience all the great offerings Central Alberta has to offer,” stated Bulldogs co-owners Doug & Jodie Quinn.
Tickets, sponsorship opportunities and volunteer requests will be available shortly through the websites of the AJHL and Blackfalds Bulldogs.
