For scouting purposes, the NAHL Showcase is the premier event of its kind and is a yearly gathering 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. The NAHL Showcase Tournament annually attracts over 9,000 people in overall attendance, including a record number of 342 NHL, NCAA and junior scouts, who attended the 2013 NAHL Showcase last season.

“We are coming off a season in which the NAHL set a new record for NCAA commitments in a season, as well as, a record number of scouts attending our events, which includes the NAHL Showcase,” said NAHL Commissioner Mark Frankenfeld. “We believe that events like the NAHL Showcase continue to set the standard, providing all the players with unmatched exposure to the hundreds of scouts who will be in attendance. Every year we keep believing we can outdo ourselves and make things even better than the year prior, and the 2014 NAHL Showcase will be no exception.
