HUNTSVILLE – The inaugural Rocket City Collegiate Hockey Showcase presented by Penalty Box Radio & hosted by the Huntsville Sports Commission will take place October 25 to 27, 2019 at Benton H. Wilcoxon Municipal Ice Complex. The showcase will feature host school University of Alabama in Huntsville (club team), along with teams from the University of Alabama, University of Arkansas, University of Florida, University of Georgia and Ole Miss each playing three games over the weekend. Select games will stream live via video and/or radio.
“We are excited to have these top teams coming to Huntsville,” said UAH head coach Mike Quenneville. “In order to be the best, you must play the best and this allows us to do just that. As we continue to build our program it is good for our team to see the high caliber of hockey right here in Huntsville.”
With hockey continuing to grow in the southeast, Huntsville makes an excellent centralized location for many of these teams to come compete. All six teams belong to the American Collegiate Hockey Association, a league composed of non-varsity collegiate hockey teams around the country. UAH, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia and Ole Miss also belong to the South Eastern Collegiate Hockey Conference.
“UGA hockey is excited to be part of the inaugural Rocket City Collegiate Hockey showcase,” UGA Hockey General Manager John Camp said. “We will be going up against two historically strong teams in Ole Miss, who we defeated last season for the SECHC Championship, and Arkansas. Arkansas is the frontrunner this season as they have multiple players who played prior for the DI team, now playing for their DIII team. UAH is a well-coached team and a rising program that is new to the SECHC this season.”
“On behalf of the Huntsville Ice Complex, the Huntsville Sports Commission and Penalty Box Radio, we are excited to host the first Rocket City Collegiate Hockey Showcase featuring top ranked teams from the SECHC and the ACHA South Region,” said Steve Clough, Senior Facility Manager of the Ice Plex.
