Press Release

The Estevan Bruins organization is continuing its preparations for the 2011 SGEU SJHL Showcase which will be held at the beautiful Spectra Place Oct. 14 to 16.

The event is an opportunity for the players of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League to display their talent to scouts from the National Collegiate Athletics Association, Canadian Interuniversity

Sports, Western Hockey League, Canadian College Athletic Association and numerous other leagues. Each club will play two games over the three days of Showcase giving scouts an ample opportunity to catch all that the SJHL has to offer.

The Bruins are excited to host this premier event for the SJHL in the brand new, state of the art, Spectra Place. The club recently played its first regular season game before over 2,000 fans and is looking forward to the opportunity to showcase not only the league’s talent but also this incredible facility to scouts and fans of the SJHL from throughout Saskatchewan.

“The Showcase weekend will not only give the Bruins and the City of Estevan a chance to show off Spectra Place, it is also the first major event the club will host in the arena and should set us down a path we expect will end with the hosting of the Royal Bank Cup in the relatively new future,” said Bruins president Jeff Pierson. “We are thrilled to welcome scouts from North America as well as the SJHL’s fantastic fans to Canada’s Energy City for a great weekend of hockey action.”

There are four games scheduled for each day of Showcase with the first set for the morning of October 14. The host Bruins will play Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. The team is in need of volunteers to run these 12 games.

During any one Bruins Home game there are at approx. 20 volunteers, this means the team needs approx. 240 volunteer positions filled throughout the weekend.

The team has also set ticket prices for Showcase. The cost for an adult weekend pass is $40 while a game day pass is $20 and individual game ticket is $12. There are also affordable pricing options for seniors, students and children.
