In less than three weeks, some of the top high school hockey programs in Michigan and beyond will be invading Trenton’s Kennedy Ice Arena for the 18th annual MIHL Prep Hockey Showcase.
The showcase spans three days – Thursday, Feb. 1 through Saturday, Feb. 3 – and features 42 high school teams from Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio.
What MiHockey previously published about this year’s showcase:
The Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League has announced the 40 teams selected to participate in the 2018 MIHL Prep Hockey Showcase.
The prestigious high school showcase will take place Thursday, Feb. 1 through Saturday, Feb. 3 at the Kennedy Ice Arena in Trenton, Mich.
East Grand Rapids and Saline return to the showcase in 2018, as the team line-up changes from year to year.
“We knew when we started the Showcase that the teams involved would change every year – new teams would be added, some teams would not be selected every year but may return in later years,” said Scott Lock of the selection committee. “It is the best way to keep the high level of competition year in and year out.”
Last year, all three state championship teams played in the showcase, as did all six state finalists and 10 of the 12 semifinalists.
Here is the 2018 team line-up:
