The British Columbia Hockey League is pleased to announce Save-On-Foods as the official presenting sponsor of the BCHL Showcase taking place Sept. 7 to 9 and hosted by the Chilliwack Chiefs.
Save-On-Foods has been a key supporter of the BCHL for the past five seasons and this announcement further illustrates their commitment to the league and its players.
“We’re excited to help the BCHL put on the Showcase and build the partnership we have with the league,” said Jim Bohac, store manager of the Save-On-Foods Sardis location. “It’s always a big plus to be involved with the Chiefs to support the team and the community.”
With 16 games being played in three days at Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre, there will be plenty of hockey action to take in. College and professional teams have taken note already and about 100 scouts are expected to attend.
“The BCHL continually strives to provide increased opportunities and exposure for its players and the Showcase is another initiative aimed at that,” said league commissioner John Grisdale. “By putting their name on the Showcase, Save-On-Foods helps ensure all our players get a chance to show what they can do in front of a lot of influential hockey people.”
The first game of the Save-On-Foods BCHL Showcase is slated for Friday, Sept. 7 at 3:30 p.m. as the Langley Rivermen take on the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. There are six games on the agenda the each of the Saturday and Sunday date.
The West Kelowna Warriors will play two games during the showcase as they play Salmon Arm on Sept. 8 and Surrey on Sept. 9. Games will count for regular season standings.
