Michigan Hockey Advancement Enjoys Successful Blaine Showcase
Total Package Hockey is pleased announce that the Michigan Hockey Advancement U16 and U18 programs finished a combined 8-0 in the midget division of the 2017 NAHL Showcase this past weekend in Blaine, MN. With their victories, the U18 team has improved their overall record to 5-0-1 and the U16’s moved to 4-2.
“While winning is certainly not the main goal of the MHA program, it is nice to see the players get rewarded,” TPH Director of Player Development and MHA U18 Head Coach Brandon Naurato said. “Michigan Hockey Advancement is about providing our players with a platform to be seen by the top junior and collegiate programs. That was the real win this past weekend.”
In addition to their perfect record, the U18 MHA squad led the entire event with a goal differential of +15. The U18’s were also the only team in their age group to finish a perfect 4-0 on the weekend. The U16’s were one of three teams in their division to finish 4-0, joining Honeybaked and the Oakland Jr. Grizzlies.
As Naurato mentioned, the goal of Michigan Hockey Advancement is just that- advancement. Perhaps the highlight of the weekend came when U18 defenseman Sam Brennan of Brighton High School committed to play Division I hockey at the Air Force Academy and dress for the NAHL’s Lone Star Brahmas in their Saturday morning game against the Philadelphia Rebels.
“We are proud of the steps the MHA program continues to take, and we were thrilled to be able to wear our colors at an event like the NAHL Showcase,” Naurato added. “We look forward to once again exposing our players to the Blaine experience next September.”
