LAS VEGAS, NV — The Los Angeles Junior Kings swept the entire field — going a perfect 7-0 — on its way to a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Thunderbirds in the final of the Superseries AAA Elite Las Vegas Showcase on Oct. 8 at City National Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada last weekend.

The three-day tournament, featuring 2006-age teams from Arizona, California, Colorado and Nevada from Oct. 5-8 over Columbus Day Weekend, was yet another successful youth hockey tournament in the blossoming hockey market of Sin City.

The Jr. Kings went 5-0 in pool play before shutting out the Vegas Jr. Knights in the semifinals, 3-0, on Oct. 7. The Thunderbirds went 4-1 before defeating the Arizona Bobcats, 5-1, in the semifinals before running into the Jr. Kings in the finale. All games were played at the newly restored City National Arena, the practice facility of the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights.

“The SuperSeries AAA Las Vegas event gives teams the opportunity for great competition in an incredible venue,” Superseries AAA President Jeremy Dallow said. “We also love the idea of giving West Coast teams that attend many of our events the chance to have an event closer to home.”

PRINCETON, NJ SHOWCASE

Over 200 players from 16 teams in Minor Midget and U-18 Divisions were on hand Oct. 6-8 at the Superseries AAA Elite Hockey Princeton Showcase at the IceLand in Hamilton, New Jersey.

Youth hockey teams from Maryland, North Carolina and Pennsylvania joined a host of teams from New Jersey at the three-day, round robin showcase.

“Many events at the midget level are focused on teams that are ranked in the Top-10,” Superseries AAA President Jeremy Dallow said, “but we feel there are many good players looking to advance their hockey future on many different teams.”
