The Topeka RoadRunners hockey club is pleased to host our first ever Holiday Showcase Tournament, taking place December 17 – 19 with all games played at Landon Arena in the Kansas Expocentre. The tournament, which is free of charge to attend features four Midget AAA teams with players who aspire to advance to Junior A, which is the level the RoadRunners play. We expect a LOT of great hockey over the weekend, capped off with a pair of NAHL games as the RoadRunners host the New Mexico Mustangs on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:05 pm.
The four teams are Rocky Mountain RoughRiders (Boulder, CO), TPH Thunder (Atlanta, GA), Omaha Hockey (Omaha, NE) and Dallas Ice Jets (Dallas, TX). The teams will skate a round robin tournament and will be seeded for the championship round based on the results. The championship game will be played on Sunday at 10:00 am.
Forward Scott Moyer who last weekend signed a tender with the RoadRunners for the 2011-12 season will be skating with the Dallas Ice Jets. Other players on the RoadRunners affiliate roster are Thomas Nitsche (Dallas Ice Jets), James Ring (TPH Thunder) and Carter Penzien (TPH Thunder).
