Less Than 2 Weeks Away from The Pro-Am Sr Chowder Cup

Once again, the Florida Eels will be hosting two teams at the Pro-Am Sr Chowder Cup. This showcase is amongst the most prestigious showcase in North America. Indeed, there will be teams from across the USA and Canada competing for the covenanted “Chowder Cup” General Manager Frank Scarpaci has been participating in this showcase since its inception some 30 years ago. It is one of the most storied showcase in North America. He has personally advanced many players from this showcase to the highest levels in hockey, including the USA NTPD, NCAA Division I and III Colleges and Universities and to the USHL and the BCHL.

Quite frankly, this showcase has been a recruiting platform to so many players who went on to play in the NHL and NCAA College hockey. Just look at their website. www.proamhockey.com It is a badge of passage if you will. Players come from all over the USA Canada and Europe to participate in this event. . Like its earlier showcase in May – the Pre-Draft Showcase, you will see so many diverse players competing. You will see NHL Draft picks, freshman for many NCAA Div. I and III colleges, while also seeing so many players from Canadian Major Juniors – the QMJHL OHL and WHL. There are numerous top players from all of the top Junior II leagues in Canada and the USA.

The Eels love to place teams in this venue – not so much to “Win” the Chowder Cup.
