Players Invited to Attend the 2019 America’s High School Showcase Illinois Team Tryouts Announced


By Mike Mullally, AHAI Director & Showcase Team General Manager


Formerly called the Chicago Showcase and renamed to USA Hockey America’s High School Showcase will be conducted April 11-15, 2019 in St. Peters, Missouri.

Twenty-four boys’ teams from across the United States representing forty-three States will compete and showcase their talents to scouts from every major hockey institution in the country. The purpose of this prestigious event remains the same. It is designed to allow high school hockey players from around the country, who do not traditionally get scouted due to geographic and budgetary constraints within the scouting circles, the opportunity to compete against the best of the best during a five-day period and be seen by every major hockey institution in North America.

During the past couple of months, coaches from Illinois High Schools have been rating players throughout Illinois. The players invited to tryout have been identified as one of the best players in Illinois High School Hockey. AHAI wishes to extend to them an invitation to ‘tryout” for the team that will represent Illinois at America’s High School Showcase. There will be three (3) tryouts for everyone to determine the final America’s High School Showcase Illinois team. Click HERE to view rosters, or click images below to enlarge.

The 2019 America’s High School Showcase Illinois Team is headed up by head coach Jon Grzbek, from Benet Academy with Nick Iaciancio, from Providence Catholic, Steve Silvey from Lyons Township and Greg Mrofcza from Maine Township assisting. The General Manager is AHAI Director, Mike Mullally.


NOTE:  Those players not selected for the Illinois Showcase team, will have the opportunity to showcase their talents at JOG Athletics College Prospects Weekend at MB Ice Arena which features coaches from various ACHA college programs. Please click HERE for complete details.
