There are tier I 18AAA teams from all over the country here this week. I watched San Jose play Okangan Hockey Academy
today and there were some really talented players on the ice. We have scouts from many of the top DI colleges in the area looking at the players as well. This tournamnet is a great way for the local schools to see players from all over the country right in their backyard.
Today I was at the Rinks at Exeter to see a few games and tomorrow I will be at the University of New Hampshire rink to watch more. I know that a majority of the pro level players come from Canada and Europe, but there really is some excellent talent working their way through the teams in the states. The 18AAA level has many of the top 18 and under players in the country playing at venues around the staes and if you get a chance to see one of these games you should check it out.
Three more days of top talent and exciting games to go. I’m looking forward to a great weekend.
