Hockey continues to grow in the area and in taking huge steps to move forward again has the Pacific Junior Hockey League again host the 2022 Winter Classic Showcase in Richmond at Minoru Arena.

The league continues to grow with the most recent addition being the Chilliwack Jets, albeit just prior to the Pandemic.

That alone was a struggle for the league, but under the guidance of newly elected league Commissioner Trefor Alto and league executive they perceived keeping the legacy of the league moving forward.

As with the past few years the league will again hold the PJHL Winter Classic in Minoru from December 29th to January 1st, with the schedule listed below.

We received the following notice from the league, so mark the dates on your calendar and make plans to attend. 

PJHL Commissioner Trevor Alto mentioned “We are excited to have this opportunity to highlight not only our league but our community as well by offering fans multiple entertainment options,” 

He continued “From live hockey to activities and spaces for kids and families, partnerships with local businesses to showcase the best offerings from across the Fraser Valley.”

The event, which runs December 29 through January 1, 2023 at  Minoru Arena in Richmond, will be available live on HockeyTV

With scouts expected in attendance, these players are able to showcase their talents in front of Junior A, CIS and College Scouts from across North America.

“We had a good majority of players from last season pursue post-educational hockey or graduate to a Junior A level commitment. This is outstanding,” said Alto. “It is my hope that the PJHL continues to provide opportunities to assist as many players as possible to make successful transitions to post-secondary hockey, or higher junior hockey opportunities including at the Junior A, USports, ACHA and NCAA levels and more successful transitions from hockey to the world of work and life. Events such as these provide players with a unique opportunity to showcase their amazing talents.”

The PJHL Winter Classic Showcase, which is part of the regular-season schedule, features 13 games with each of the league’s 13 teams playing two games.

Ticketing information will be provided at a later date.
