BUFFALO, N.Y. (April 6, 2014) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced the rosters for the 11th annual Scotty Bowman Showcase, which will take place on Sunday, April 12 at First Niagara Center.
The Scotty Bowman Showcase consists of three all-star hockey games between high school-aged players from the Buffalo and Rochester areas. Tickets for the event are $5.
The first game will begin at 1:00 p.m. with high school juniors from the two cities facing off against one another for the Tim Horton Memorial Cup. In 2014, the Buffalo juniors won the trophy with a 4-3 shootout victory.
The next game will take place at 3:00 p.m. between high school seniors from each city. The winner of the second game will be awarded the Scotty Bowman Cup. The Buffalo seniors won last year’s Bowman Cup, improving to 7-3 in the event’s 10-year history.
The third game will feature players from Buffalo and Rochester who play prep school or junior hockey, either locally or elsewhere. The junior and senior-year high school-aged players will face off for the Rick Martin Memorial Cup at 5:00 p.m. All three games will consist of two 22-minute halves.
The event is named after the legendary Scotty Bowman, the winningest head coach in NHL history. Bowman will be in attendance to present the Bowman Cup to the victorious senior team.
