WINNIPEG ─ Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) and The Hockey Academy at Ralph Engelstad Arena are proud to announce that the MJHL will hold a U.S. Prospects Camp in Grand Forks, North Dakota, May 12 and 13, 2018.
Representatives from the League office and all eleven MJHL franchises will be on site to scout United States hockey players with birthdates in 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 that have the potential to play elite junior hockey in the Canadian Junior Hockey League system.
“The 2018 MJHL Prospect Camp at Ralph Engelstad Arena will provide the next generation of American MJHL Players with the knowledge and resources to be successful both on and off the ice, an insight into what playing in the MJHL is all about and the platform to showcase themselves to coaches and scouts from the MJHL clubs.”- Kim Davis, MJHL Commissioner
The 2018 MJHL Prospect Camp will focus on the skills, both on and off the ice, that are necessary to be successful in the upper levels of Junior hockey and beyond. The on-ice program will consist of practice and competitive game sessions. The off-ice portion of the camp will cover elements related to athleticism and mental skills, as well as identifying what is required to be a successful player in the MJHL.
“This is a great opportunity for some of our local hockey players to get exposure to a top Junior A hockey league so they can continue their playing careers and hopefully make it to the next level.”- Ryan Ladoucer, Director of The Hockey Academy. Most of the participants at the MJHL U.S. Prospect Camp will come from North Dakota and Minnesota, but it is expected that a few players will come from other parts of the country as well. The 2018 U.S. Prospects Camp will be an invite-only event.
