More than 80 scouts packed into the Kennedy Recreation Center last year for the Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League (MIHL) Prep Hockey Showcase, and showcase officials are expecting as many or more this year.
More than 43 top-ranked high school teams, with hockey players from Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Ontario, are set to play several games over the four-day event, according to an MIHL release.
"There's going to be a lot of great hockey and a lot of scouts come from all over the place," said Tim Beaker, Kennedy's operations manager.
The 13th annual showcase is set for Feb. 6-9. Games begin at 4 p.m. Feb. 6 and 7, at 10 a.m. Feb. 8 and at 8 a.m. Feb. 9.
Tickets are $6 per day or $10 for a weekend pass for adults and $4 per day or $6 for a weekend pass for seniors and students.
It'll cost $3 a day to park in the Kennedy Recreation Center parking lot.
A free shuttle service to Kennedy will run continuously from the Trenton High School West Road and Charlton Street parking lots, Martenson Funeral Home parking lot and the Trenton Cultural Center parking lot.
