The 2016 Bauer BCHL Showcase schedule is set and again all 17 teams will be in action at Prospera Centre in Chilliwack.
The dates of this season’s event are Sept. 21 to 25. The one extra day is to accommodate a single game on the Wednesday night, Sept. 21. All 17 games will be completed by the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 25 meaning each game will be well attended by scouts and college coaches.
Opening this year’s Showcase is a rematch of last season’s Fred Page Cup Finals with the champion West Kelowna Warriors facing the event host Chilliwack Chiefs. All matchups feature non-division opponents and all games count for points in the standings.
The secondary sheet of ice at Prospera Centre will be used for two games during the Showcase. This allows all games to be completed prior to Sunday evening, which is when many scouts have to leave for travel.
The 2016 Bauer BCHL Showcase does not mark the start of the 2016-17 season. There will have been two weeks of regular-season games played by the time the Showcase starts.
