BURNABY, British Columbia -- The Burnaby Mountain Hockey Society is pleased to announce that the 2014 Great Northwest Showcase will take place on January 3rd and 4th, 2014, and will feature the University of North Dakota (NCAA Division I), the Princeton University Tigers (NCAA Division I), Simon Fraser University Men’s Hockey (BCIHL), and the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (CIS).

The Great Northwest Showcase began in 2012 as a four-game exhibition showcasing top level international University Men’s Hockey while promoting the importance of education during an athlete’s career. This year’s event will continue in the tradition of the GNS while building on the success of the inaugural event. The GNS not only provides a valuable competitive experience for the student-athletes involved, but also world-class entertainment and competition for sports fans of all ages who attend.

The four games of this year’s GNS are: SFU vs Princeton, UBC vs UND, UBC vs Princeton, and SFU vs UND. The games are scheduled to take place at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre in Burnaby, BC, home of the SFU Men’s Hockey team.

“We appreciate the invitation and are proud to be a part of this tournament,” says UND Head Coach Dave Hakstol. “It is a great opportunity to spread the footprint of NCAA Division I hockey and, at the same time, allows many of our players from Western Canada to return home for two exhibition games.”

“The UBC Hockey Team is excited to attend this year’s Great Northwest Showcase, it will be a great opportunity for the fans to see different levels of college hockey and two top NCAA programs.” says UBC Head Coach Milan Dragicevic. “Our players will be thrilled to play against top NCAA competition and raise the level of awareness of CIS hockey in the Lower Mainland.”

Tickets are now on sale at www.burnabymountainhockey.com.
