Beginning Feb. 8, the 2024 Northern Cyclones Showcase will kick off at Cyclones Arena in Hudson, N.H., marking the final UPHL Premier and Elite event on the unparalleled USPHL Showcase Series calendar for the 2023-24 season. The event runs from Thursday, Feb. 8, through Monday, Feb. 12.
Teams from the USPHL Premier and Elite’s New England and Atlantic Divisions will be joined by select teams from the Midwest East and Great Lakes Divisions on the Premier side; and the Midwest Elite and North American Prep Hockey League teams on the Elite schedule.
A total of 26 teams – 13 from the USPHL Premier and 13 from the USPHL Elite – will be competing at the Northern Cyclones Showcase.
The showcase will provide great drama as teams will be either pushing to clinch playoff berths or, for those who’ve already clinched, they will be solidifying playoff positioning for when the postseason kicks off in early March. For the most part, the games at the Northern Cyclones Showcase will be the last cross-divisional games until the start of the USPHL National Championships in Utica, N.Y., which will run March 21-26. A few key match-ups featuring recent Nationals competitors will take place at the Cyclones Showcase. College scouts and hockey fans won’t want to miss games such as the Metro Jets vs. Northern Cyclones or the Metro Jets Development Program (MJDP) vs. Islanders Hockey Club on the Premier side, or the Northern Cyclones vs. Rockets Hockey Club on the Elite side.
The Northern Cyclones Showcase will feature hospitality for visiting college scouts, and there is no fee for college scouts to attend the event. For those who cannot attend to see our fantastic student-athletes in person, we hope you will watch on FloHockey.tv, where all of the games will be broadcast throughout the event. We look forward to seeing you at the 2024 Northern Cyclones Showcase.
