SAMPLE CCM Hockey Showcase Schedule
Player Check In:
Check-in runs from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Friday, May 27 in the main rink overlook at the Ice Centre at the Promenade. All CCMHS assigned team jerseys, socks, and apparel will be given out at that time.
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 traveling 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 Friday, May 20.
All teams are assigned full-time staff to run the bench for all games during the weekend.
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:
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.
Full cages are required at all times for players in the Futures Group; no half-shields will be allowed at any time for players in this group. If you 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 29. The CCM Hockey Top Prospects will each receive a CCM Hockey hoodie, while the All-Star Game MVP will receive a 2022-23 CCM Super Tacks hockey stick.
