The 2018 ECEL Showcase Begins in Three Weeks!

September 12, 2018

Guilford, Conn., – The 2018 East Coast Elite League (ECEL) is just over three weeks away and will take place from October 6-8, 2018, at the Rodman Arena and Boch Ice Center in, Walpole, MA.  All 12 organizations and several guests will play regular-season games at the Showcase, which is one of hockey's most prominent and popular events of the entire season in the northeast.

One of the things the East Coast Elite League (ECEL) does well is helping create an organized and competitive environment for players in the league to be seen by scouts at many different levels to help them earn an NCAA opportunity while playing in the ECEL. Each year we set the bar higher and higher to create a competitive balance for the teams and promote our players to the next level. The East Coast Elite League (ECEL) showcase series plays a big role in that success, with dozens of players each season earning NCAA Division I/III opportunities following their participation in our league events.

NOTE: Daily scout passes will be available free of charge and include all of the benefits listed below.

Scout passes are free for the entire event and include the following: 

  • Credential
  • Admission to all games and exclusive scout room
  • Event program with rosters
  • Line-up charts 
  • Food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) 
  • Beverages (coffee, tea, water, soft drinks)

All games at the 2018 ECEL will be broadcast in HD on HockeyTV 

It will be the first event of the season for the East Coast Elite League (ECEL) and we are excited for our lineup of returning members and guests.  Now entering its 5th anniversary season, the East Coast Elite League (ECEL) is made up of USA Hockey-sanctioned and Hockey Canada teams that compete in the 18U, 16U and 15U levels.
