All games will be streamed live with broadcasters providing maximum collegiate, junior hockey and prep school exposure. Line charts will be published for every game and data analytics software packages will be made available for purchase for all players. Each showcase will feature four games at every level with schedules geared to minimize school absences as well as a calendar that will accommodate league schedules by avoiding large league weekends as much as possible.
