Player Check In

Check-in runs from 10:00am to 5:00 pm on Friday, May 25 in the main rink overlook at the Ice Centre at the Promenade, prior to the Friday Night Seminars. All CCMHS assigned team jerseys, socks, and apparel will be given out at that time.


Friday Night Seminars:

Two, 60-minute seminars will be available to all participants and their families at the Denver Marriott Westminster, across Hwy 36 from the Promenade, according to the schedule below. These marquee seminars will be held after Player Check-In, and prior to the start of the game action, in an effort to ensure all players and their families may attend.

  • 8:30-9:30 pm - TBA
  • 9:30-10:30 pm - TBA

Games

All games will be 75 minutes long and consist of a 5-minute warm-up and three (3), 20-minute running time periods. All games will be refereed by 2 certified refs and will play according to USA Hockey Junior rules. That being said, for the safety of the players, we will be playing normal icing rules, not hybrid icing rules utilized at the Junior level.


Player/Coach Meet & Greet:

The Player/Coach Meet & Greet will be held from 2:30-4:30pm on Sunday, May 27 in the mezzanine above the Blue Rink (middle rink) at the Promenade. The Player/Coach Meet & Greet will provide all coaches and players in attendance an informal environment to introduce themselves, talk, and get to know each other in an off-ice recruiting type environment.


CCM Hockey Expo:

The CCM Hockey Expo will be held in conjunction with the CCMHS Player/Coach Meet & Greet from 2:30-4:30pm on Sunday, May 27 in the mezzanine above the Blue Rink (middle rink) at the Promenade. The CCM Hockey Expo will provide a venue for all CCMHS partners and sponsors, as well as various other sporting goods and apparel companies, including CCM Hockey and Reebok Hockey, to present their wares and for CCMHS Participants to learn about the latest technology and products in the hockey world.


Team Coaches

Each Team will be assigned permanent coaches for the duration of the weekend. This coach will run the bench for each game and conduct the face-to-face exit interviews at the event conclusion.


Assigned Teams

All registered and accepted players will be randomly assigned to a team prior to the start of the event. For example, the total number of AAA players will be added up, sorted alphabetically, and then assigned to each team in a 1, 2, 3 fashion. After that the same protocol will be used to assign the AA players, then the Junior A players, and then the Junior B players to teams. It is in the best interest of the showcase, and the players, to provide even teams, and to promote the highest level of competition as possible. Unfortunately, we cannot place large groups of players travelling together on the same team.  

Each team will consist of a max of 6 Defenseman, 9 Forwards and 3 Goaltenders with equal ice time afforded to all players in every game. Less players per team equals more ice time per player per game, and of course better scouting opportunities for each participant. Team rosters will be published on or before Monday, May 21, 2018.


All Star Games

The CCM Hockey Showcase All-Star Game for the Tenders Group will be held on Sunday, May 27, time TBA.

The coaches and scouts assigned to coach the teams in each group will be responsible for selecting the All Star Game participants for each age group. The selection process will take place after all teams have had the chance to play three games during the weekend, and will be coordinated by one of the coaches assigned to a team in that age division. At no time will the directors of the event be involved in this process. 

All Star Teams will be announced via a posting in the rink lobby, as well as a posting on our website and Facebook page. All Star game jerseys will then be available for pick up in the lower level lobby on Monday am.


Goaltending Sessions

There will be 3 specialized goaltender sessions directed by U.S. Air Force Academy Head Coach Frank Serratore and available to all CCM Hockey Showcase Participants on Friday, May 25, 2018. These goaltending sessions will be directed by professional goaltending coaches.

Tenders Group Goaltending Sessions Schedule --> Friday, May 25, 2018:

  • 2:45-3:45 pm, Green Rink = 1998-1999 birth year players
  • 4:00-5:00 pm, Green Rink = 2000-2001 birth year players

Game Rules

The Showcase will utilize USA Hockey Junior hockey rules for all games. Each penalty will result in the player spending two minutes in the box, instead of the shootout like years past. We have had requests from coaches that want to see how certain players react in man up, and man down, situations. All penalties will be 2-minute running time penalties.

Along with the standard USA Hockey rules, we will be also strictly enforcing the following rules:

NO-FIGHTING:
If you fight, you will be subject to a hearing in front of the Showcase Directors and may be ejected from the remainder of the showcase with no refund.

INTENT TO INJURE:
If you injure a player in a malicious way, with a clear intent to injure, as determined solely at the refs discretion, you will not be allowed to play the remainder of the game in question. If it happens twice, that payer will be ejected from the remainder of the Showcase with no refund.

HALF-SHIELDS:
Half shields may be worn only by those players 18 years of age or older as of May 25, 2018. If you are under 18 and show up with a half-shield, you will be escorted off the ice and not allowed to return to play until you find a full cage.


CCM Hockey Awards

The CCM Hockey Top Prospects, along with the All-Star Game MVP’s, will be selected at the conclusion of the two age-specific All Star Games on Sunday, May 27. The CCM Hockey Top Prospects will each receive a CCM Hockey hoodie, and the All-Star Game MVP will receive a 2018 CCM Super Tacks hockey stick.


Exit Interviews

All players will be able to schedule a face-to-face exit interview with one their assigned team coaches should they want one. It is suggested that these interviews be done as late as possible during the weekend to give your coaches as much time to evaluate your play as possible This being said, it is advised that each player talk to their respective coaches to determine a best time for that coach to do the interview. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is the responsibility of the player to schedule the face-to-face interviews with their coach, not the other way around. Please be diligent about this.
