Minnesota Hockey, in conjunction with CCM and the Minnesota Hockey Coaches Association (MHCA), announced today the kickoff of the 2018 CCM Minnesota Hockey High Performance season beginning Friday, March 23. The CCM Minnesota Hockey High Performance programs are designed to develop, train and identify the best players in Minnesota and to provide top players from each district or section the chance to play with and against the best players in the state.
The action kicks off this weekend with the Ted Brill Great 8 Festivals being held at Doug Woog Arena in South St. Paul beginning Friday. For over 35 years, the Ted Brill Great 8 has provided high school seniors the opportunity to showcase their skills and abilities to coaches and scouts from junior, collegiate and professional teams.
The event’s new format, which was initiated in 2017, features eight teams consisting of four teams selected from Senior players, and another four teams, referred to as HP 18’s, determined from Junior players born in 2000. The Senior and HP 18 teams will be formed according to paired high school sections (Sections 1 & 3, Sections 2 & 6, Sections 4 & 5 and Sections 7 & 8).
