Both events will be held in conjunction with the eighth annual Sherbrook/NAHL Showcase Tournament, which has evolved into one of hockey's most prestigious and well-attended events of the entire season.

For scouting purposes, the four-day Showcase Tournament, in which all 26 NAHL teams play four regular-season games, is a can't-miss for every NCAA program and NHL team as they get their first look at some of the best and brightest hockey talent North America has to offer.
