The Massachusetts Premier Development Hockey League (MPDHL) is sending a team to participate in the 2016 America's Showcase in Pittsburgh, PA. The tournament will be from April 14th - 18th.
The America's Showcase was developed to provide the nation’s premier high school players an opportunity to be scouted by high-level programs so those players may further their hockey careers in prep school, juniors, college, and beyond.
The team will consist of local players from Massachusetts that are currently playing for their high school. When the season ends we will have about a month to prepare for competition. The competition will be from all over the United States including teams from Texas, California, Arizona, Oregon, Maryland and many more states.
Our gofundme page is designed to help defray the cost for the players and give them this opportunity to participate in such a prestigious tournament. The money will go towards team meals, transportation, hotel rooms. Anything that can help the players. Any type of donation you can give will be greatly appreciated.

The MPDHL would like to Congratulate the 2005 NE Jr. Hurricanes on winning the Championship in the Tier I Division of the prestigious John W Kennedy Tournament.
En route to the Championship, the Hurricanes had victories over Boston Jr. Eagles (5-0), Portland Jr Pirates (8-1), and Boston Bandits (7-0). Their only loss in preliminary round was 4-3 to the Tier I Minutemen Flames.
In a great rematch of their only loss, the Hurricanes were once again matched up against the Minutemen Flames in the Semis. Avenging the loss, they came out on top by a score of 4-2 and were on to the Finals.
They would face the East Coast Wizards Select team in the Finals. In another epic battle, they were able to come out on top by a score of 2-1.
The Hurricanes represented the MPDHL extremely well against other top Tier I teams and leagues. Once again, a BIG CONGRATULATIONS!!!
"The Premier" mission is to showcase and develop hockey players in an effort to help them realize their potential as athletes along with being valued members of their community. The League will help promote respect, courtesy and good sportsmanship among all teams participating inclusive of players, coaches, parents and fans.
