27th Annual Alliance College & Draft Preview Showcase

The AXE Hockey Group is proud to announce plans for the 27th annual Alliance College and Draft Preview Showcase, to be held at the Haverhill Valley Forum in Haverhill, MA. Since 1991, the directors of the AXE Hockey Group have increased players’ visibility by showcasing their hockey talents for college coaches and pro scouts. To that end, the AXE Hockey Group would like to invite your junior-eligible players (not born before 1998) and u16-eligible players to participate in this year’s college preparatory event.

Schedule of Events

Friday, June 29th – Sunday, July 1st

The games will begin on Friday, June 29th, and continue through Sunday, July 1st. Each participating team will play three round-robin games (two 25-min periods), and at least one guaranteed one-period (25-mins) mini game on Sunday. Game times to be determined by round-robin team standings.


As a result of growing demand, the AXE Hockey Group is expanding this year’s Alliance Showcase to include the following divisions…

  • Boys u16 Division (2002 thru 2004 birth years)
  • Boys Open Division (1998 thru 2002 birth years)
