BCHL extra: Sponsor named for Showcase

Action starts September seventh at Prospera Centre as the junior A circuit welcomes all its teams for three days of games.

The British Columbia Hockey League has announced Save-On-Foods as the official presenting sponsor of the BCHL Showcase, taking place Sept. 7-9 in Chilliwack.

“We’re excited to help the BCHL put on the Showcase and build the partnership we have with the league,” said Jim Bohac, store manager of the Save-On-Foods Sardis location. “It’s always a big plus to be involved with the Chiefs to support the team and the community.”

Sixteen games will be played over three days at Prospera Centre, with approximately 100 talent evaluators from the professional and collegiate ranks in attendance.

“The BCHL continually strives to provide increased opportunities and exposure for its players and the Showcase is another initiative aimed at that,” said league commissioner John Grisdale. “By putting their name on the Showcase, Save-On-Foods helps ensure all our players get a chance to show what they can do in front of a lot of influential hockey people.”
