PRIME HOCKEY EXPO
- Gender: Male
- Dates: April 14-16, 2023
- Age: 2009-2014
- Location: Calgary, AB
- Elite Division
- Invite Only
The Prime Hockey Expo (PHE) is an invite-only, individual-entry showcase featuring the top minor hockey players across Western Canada. This exclusive event will only be offered to 100 of the top players in each age group from Western Canada (approximately 34 players from British Columbia, 34 from Alberta, 17 from Saskatchewan, and 17 from MB).
Our goal for the event is simple, we are driven to provide each participant with significant exposure to coaches and scouts at the next level (respective to their age) in an intimate and highly competitive setting.
Participants will benefit by exposure to scouts at either the Bantam/Prep Academy (9-13-year-olds) or Junior level (14 to 15-year-olds), in addition to being evaluated to participate in the exclusive Prime Hockey programming such as the World Youth Championships (WYC) in Philadelphia and Europe, the Prime Maize and Blue camp and the Hockey Hall of Fame Future Legends tournament and more.
The event follows a similar format to Hockey Canada's U17 selection camp, where players are split into *6 teams with rosters comprised of players from each of the western provinces.
If you have not been invited but wish to be considered for the PHE, please submit an inquiry below.

SEMIFINAL AND FINALS
Please speak to a tournament official in order to determine the playoff format for each division. It is incumbent upon the team officials to confirm with a Tournament representative whether or not their team has advanced beyond preliminary round play prior to leaving the arena following their final preliminary round game.
In the event a Semi or Final game should end in a tie, the tie will be broken in the following manner:
5 minute sudden death (3 on 3)
3 player shootout.
Sudden death shootout (both teams get to shoot each round).
For Shootouts the home team has a choice of who shoots first.
After the first 3 players from each team shoot if teams are still tied you can repeat any shooter as many times you would like.
If 2 teams are tied in points, the following order applies to determine the ranking of teams. If more than two teams are tied, teams will go through each tiebreaker until ONE team is determined the winner (there is no head-to-head if there are more than two teams), once the tiebreaker is broken and one team is the winner, that team advances and the tiebreaker resets to #1 (again, head-to-head only applies for when there is only 2 teams left) for the remaining teams.
Total Team Points
Head to Head (two team tie breaker only)
Goal Quotient = Goals for / (Goals For + Goals against)
Least Goals Allowed
Quickest Goal in the tournament in the first game
*EXAMPLE:Team A, B, C and D all are tied with 6 points. The first tiebreaker in this example would be #3 Best goal differential formula. Team A wins that, so then it resets to 3 teams tied with 6 points. Then, apply the best goal differential formula again, Team B wins that. Then, the last two teams would go to #2 if applicable, if not, then the process would proceed according to the tiebreakers #3 through #6.
