MIHL president Andy Weidenbach said he’s been very pleased with the growth of the tournament over the last few years.
“Originally, the MIHL was formed to promote high quality high school hockey, strong competition and sportsmanship,” Weidenbach said in a release. “The Showcase was a natural offshoot of that mission. The first twelve Showcases were great successes and we are very optimistic about this year’s event. High school hockey in Michigan has experienced tremendous growth in the last few years, both in the number of teams participating and in the quality of play. Accordingly, we have expanded the Showcase so that we can continue our mission of providing exposure for the best of high school hockey. There were 12 teams in the first Showcase and now there are 43 teams competing”.
