A new Christmas showcase in the KIJHL will give players exposure to teams at the next level.
The league announced its first annual College Showcase last week which will take place December 27 to 29, 2018.
The event will see all 20 teams play two scheduled league games in Kamloops over a three day span.
A league release says scouts from NCAA Div. 2 & 3, ACHA Div. 1, BCIHL and ACAC will be in attendance as well as various Junior A leagues throughout the country.
The event falls on the same weekend the Kimberley Dynamiters and Fernie Ghostriders would normally host their annual “Christmas Classic” home-and-home series which draws over 1000 fans in each town every year.
