At Hockey Night in Boston, the health and safety of all our participants, families, and staff is of the utmost importance to us.

We will be constantly monitoring the COVID-19 situation over the coming weeks and months and if needed, will revisit and make any changes necessary. Any updates to our events will be communicated directly to those who have registered, as well as being posted on our website and social media accounts.

Given the current situation with COVID-19, we have amended our current refund policy. Please see below:

– Players that want to cancel for any other reason can opt for a full credit for future events

Hockey Night in Boston will hold our annual Central/West H.S. Festival from June 18th to June 20th for qualified varsity HS players entering their JuniorSenior or PG year in the Fall of 2021. This weekend festival provides the opportunity to compete against Prep and High School talent from all over Central Massachusetts and parts of Connecticut and New York, get exposure to Prep and Junior coaches, and play some summer hockey!

This festival will give players entering their JR, SR, or PG year the opportunity to be chosen to play in the historic 47th Annual HNIB Boys Major Summer Showcase which will be held at the Haverhill Valley Forum from July 28th – August 1st.

HNIB will be pre-selecting players prior to the Festival to make up the core of several Major teams. HNIB will then select 20-25 players from this Festival to complete those rosters, as well as compliment other rosters in the Boys Major Showcase.
