The Norman Northstars will be looking for more than just their first win of the season this weekend during the annual Manitoba Midget “AAA” showcase in Portage la Prairie.
The showcase will be well attended by both Major Junior and Junior “A” scouts, as well as some U.S. universities, who will be looking for talented players to add to their rosters.
The Nor-Man squad, who currently sit in the Manitoba Midget “AAA” Hockey League basement at 0-7, will kick things off tonight against the Central Plains Capitals at 8:00pm. The Capitals come into the game with a record of 3-4, and sit 10th in the league.
The Northstars play the 8th-place Southwest Cougars tomorrow afternoon, and wrap up the showcase Sunday with a matinee against the Parkland Rangers.
Alternate captain Henry Muchikekwanape currently leads the team in both points (8) and assists (5), while second year forward Jamie Valentino leads the team in goals (4).
