BOSTON, MA — Superseries AAA Elite Hockey, one of the world-wide leaders in organized youth hockey tournaments, orchestrated not one, not two, but three events this past weekend as nearly 4,000 players from 262 teams spanning 22 states and two Canadian Provinces were on hand at the Boston Breakout, Michigan State Midget Faceoff and DHI Mite Season Opener.

In what began with just over a couple dozen teams in 2013, the sixth annual Boston Breakout pitted 236 teams from Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Washington, D.C. skated with teams from Ontario and Quebec at 16 rinks scattered around New England at the 2018 event.

The round-robin tournament featuring 2004 to 2009 birth-year divisions saw each team play five games over the course of three days from Sept 7-9 in the Boston Breakout showcase.

Games were held at Boch Ice Center, Canton Ice House, Essex Sports Arena, Gallant Arena, Lawler Arena, North Star Ice Sports, Rodman Arena, Skate 3 Ice Arena, Warrior Arena and Worcester Ice Center in Massachusetts, Cyclones Arena, ICenter, Tri-Town Ice Arena and The Rinks at Exeter in New Hampshire, and Lynch Arena and The Sports Center in North Smithfield in Rhode Island.

“The Boston Breakout has become the premier event for teams to open their season with,” Superseries President Jeremy Dallow said. “Our format, which is a five-game showcase against similarly skilled teams, provides teams a way to get great competition in every game. Coaches do not need to worry about “coaching to win” in order to qualify for playoffs where traditionally the best matchups are. This gives teams the ability to prepare for the league season without the pressure of having to qualify for extra games and without having to play lopsided games which is bad for everyone.”

Sixteen minor midget teams were on hand at the Michigan State Midget Faceoff with representation from Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio and Texas.

Games were graciously hosted by Munn Arena, Suburban Ice and The Summit Sports and Ice Complex in suburban Detroit.

“SuperSeries continues to work to put players in the position to be seen by college and junior scouts and playing at venues that gives families a chance to get the college experience,” Dallow said. “Whether its Michigan State or Notre Dame we will continue to provide great experiences.”
