USA Hockey Arena is selling tickets to the World Junior Summer Showcase in Plymouth, MI from July 26th through August 3rd. I highly, highly recommend taking in the tournament if you are able to do so as the top Under-18 players for the U.S., Canada, Finland and Sweden all take part–as will several Red Wings draft picks.
I’m not sure whether I’ll make the tournament as it’s possible that I will be on vacation in Grand Marais, MI, but this is an event that’s so much fun that I would almost be willing to sacrifice my vacation to attend.
Here’s part of USA Hockey’s press release announcing the sale of tickets:
