The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) is tuned in with SaskTel for the upcoming SJHL Showcase in Warman.
The event, which runs Sept.22-25 at the Legends Centre in Warman, will be available live on SaskTel maxTV and maxTV Stream channels 49 and 349. The Showcase will also be streamed on Facebook.
With 200 scouts expected in attendance these players are able to showcase their talents in front of NHL, CIS and NCAA scouts all across the country.
Bill Chow states “It’s events like this that allow scouts the ability to see players at the beginning of the year and watch them develop throughout the season. Having a showcase where a scout can fly in and watch all 12 teams play aides in getting our players recognized and potentially furthering their career with respect to hockey & education”
The SJHL prides itself on providing opportunities and assistance for its players who are prospective student athletes. With a mission statement of “Building Strong Career Foundations For Brighter Futures”, the SJHL is committed to assisting its athletes with educational options. Each of the SJHL’s 12 franchises are dedicated to help develop each player’s growth through academic, social and physical experiences, allowing for success on and off the ice.
“We’re thrilled to once again be the exclusive television broadcast partner of the SJHL,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO. “With maxTV and maxTV Stream available in almost 290 communities throughout Saskatchewan, these young athletes will be able to showcase their talents to fans in nearly every corner of the province. Plus, with the maxTV app available for free to all maxTV and maxTV Stream subscribers, SJHL fans can tune in on their smartphone or tablet anywhere in Canada."
