Hockey Night in Boston will hold our annual High School Division Festival at the Haverhill Valley Forum (Haverhill, MA) for qualified varsity Massachusetts players entering their JuniorSenior or PG year in the Fall. This weekend festival provides the opportunity to compete against Prep and High School talent from all over Massachusetts/Northern New England, 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 in late-July.

HNIB will be pre-selecting players prior to the Festival to make up the core of several Major teams. HNIB will then select 45-50 players from this Festival to complete those rosters, as well as compliment other rosters in the Boys Major Showcase.
