About the Great Northwest Showcase    
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 competitive career.

The event is organized by the Burnaby Mountain Hockey Society, a non-profit organization incorporated in 2010 as the promotional and fundraising body of the Simon Fraser University men’s hockey program.
