There are 12 teams. This tournament is considered a parody as it is inspired by the 1967-68 NHL season consisting of the original 6 teams in the east and 6 expansion teams in the west. There are 14 guaranteed games.
It is tournament consisting of four classes. They are as follows, seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshmen. The 13U event is strictly for Peewee and Atom players.
The way the teams are made is 12 general managers are selected by the commissioner and then their names are put into a lottery for the first pick. Teams are then made over a virtual draft via Zoom, using an online draft that is broadcasted live on our web page. Players can follow the draft and watch it unfold, and they can come back to see future trades and final rosters. All general managers have an anniversary cap that is to be respected, each team must be balanced with a certain number of each class.
Players receive a practice jersey, official game jersey (players do not keep the game jerseys), socks, pant shells, helmets, gloves, team bags, team warmup gear. (Goalies do not receive helmets and gloves, to compensate they will receive extra separate goalie training clinics at Quartier Hockey and MyGoal Performance.
Champions and Finalists of the playoffs will win individual custom mini Jr.Stanley Cups, team championship rings, championship hats. Conference finalists will also be awarded. Players will receive individual awards and player of the game medals along with the Jr.Conn Smythe trophy for the tournament MVP.
All of the games will be filmed and broadcasted live on the web. A photographer will be present, in action photos will be available in the photo gallery on our webpage. A signature is required confirming your knowledge and acceptance.
Congratulations to the NHLKIDS SUMMER 2022 Jr.Stanley Cup champions, The Little Redwings!
