What is the Mid-Atlantic Festival?

Hockey Night in Boston will hold our 2018 Mid-Atlantic Festival for players who have had high school, prep school, or junior hockey experience, and who will be entering their SophomoreJuniorSenior, or PG year in the Fall of 2018. This weekend festival provides the opportunity to compete against talent from all over Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and the rest of the Mid-Atlantic, 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 44th Annual HNIB Boys Major Summer Showcase which will be held at the Haverhill Valley Forum from July 25th – July 29th.

The Mid-Atlantic and Connecticut/NY teams will be pre-selecting 8-10 players prior to the Festival to make up the core of those teams. HNIB will then select 25-30 players from this Festival to complete those two rosters, as well as compliment other rosters in the Boys Major Showcase.

Players entering their Sophomore year will be given the opportunity to be chosen to play in the 38th Annual Sophomore All-Star Tournament held at the Haverhill Valley Forum from July 8th – July 12th.
