Sockeyes Host Winter Classic Again

The Pacific Junior Hockey League (PJHL) is dialed in for the upcoming 2022 Winter Classic Showcase in Richmond, BC.

“We are excited to have this opportunity to highlight not only our league but our community as well by offering fans multiple entertainment options,” said PJHL Commissioner Trevor Alto. “From live hockey to activities and spaces for kids and families, partnerships with local businesses to showcase the best offerings from across the Fraser Valley.”

The event, which runs December 29 through January 1, 2023 at  Minoru Arena in Richmond, will be available live on HockeyTV. With scouts expected in attendance, these players are able to showcase their talents in front of Junior A, CIS and College Scouts from across North America.

“We had a good majority of players from last season pursue post-educational hockey or graduate to a Junior A level commitment. This is outstanding,” said Alto. “It is my hope that the PJHL continues to provide opportunities to assist as many players as possible to make successful transitions to post-secondary hockey, or higher junior hockey opportunities including at the Junior A, USports, ACHA and NCAA levels and more successful transitions from hockey to the world of work and life. Events such as these provide players with a unique opportunity to showcase their amazing talents.”

The PJHL Winter Classic Showcase, which is part of the regular-season schedule, features 13 games with each of the league’s 13 teams playing two games. Ticketing information will be provided at a later date.
