Next month, a major showcase for national high school hockey talent will be played in Plymouth.
Rosters for the 4th Annual CCM High School National Invitational Tournament have been announced, and are listed below.
The tournament pits all-star teams from Minnesota, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Dakota and Michigan against one another.
Minnesota will have two teams in the tournament - each selected from a pool of players in two different all-star events: The Performance Advanced 18 Festival and the Ted Brill Great 8 Tournament.
“Many high school players have the potential to play at the next level after their high school career is over and this tournament will give these young men a chance to showcase their abilities in front of scouts from the NHL, NCAA and junior leagues,” said Mike MacMillan, Executive Director of the Minnesota High School Coaches Association in a statement.
The tournament opens April 25th at the Plymouth Ice Center, with the finals on Sunday, April 28th.
