The Eels coaches strongly feel that it is much better to evaluate a player’s skill set and hockey sense by seeing him compete in showcase settings against top players from the USA, Canada and Europe than having players perform perfunctory drills. So we encourage prospects to join us at these showcases.
Simply put we are looking for the best players and we want to see if you can play this game. We are not interested in how you look against who ever shows up to a tryout session. We want to see how you compete against the top players in the world. Keep in mind NCAA Div. 1 and 3 colleges do not do tryouts. Nor do the pros. They scout, recruit and evaluate the players in high-level competitive games.
Thus the Eels coaching staff will invite targeted players to one of its Spring/Summer showcase teams. The players and the coaches get to know a little about one another to ensure there is good chemistry.
This year the Eels will be hosting teams in the following off season Showcases and strongly encourages interested players to contact us to participate in one of these tryout showcase teams. Note that 4 of these forums are in Massachusetts.
- May 8-10th The USPHL Showcase in Marlboro MA.
- May 8-10th The Pro Am International NHL Pre Draft in Walpole & Foxboro MA.
- July 16th – 19th USPHL Summer Showcase Marlboro MA.
- July 16th-19th New England Pro Am Sr. Chowder Cup Walpole & Foxboro MA.
The cost for each showcase is $250.00. Players are responsible for their own transportation, food and lodging.
