Chiefs versus Powell River in Showcase opener

The Chilliwack Chiefs face the Powell River Kings and Merritt Centennials in their two BCHL Showcase games.

The Chilliwack Chiefs will open the 2014-15 BCHL season against the Powell River Kings.

The schedule for the league’s Bauer BCHL Showcase was released Wednesday.

Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre is the host venue for a third straight year, with 16 teams playing 16 games over three days.

Day one has Vernon versus Cowichan Valley, Salmon Arm versus Langley, Coquitlam versus West Kelowna and Penticton versus Surrey.

The new look Chiefs get at it Sept. 20 at 7 p.m., taking on the Kings on Prospera’s main rink. Their second Showcase game is the next night, at 7 p.m. versus Merritt.

Results from Showcase games count in the regular season standings.

The first two Showcases drew strong attendance from both National Hockey League and NCAA scouts.

“The Showcase has proven to be a popular event for both people looking for talent and also our teams and players,” said BCHL communications director Brent Mutis. “The chance for scouts to see all players under one roof in one weekend is extremely valuable and the City of Chilliwack has been an ideal host for this event each of the last two years.”
