just another spring/summer tournament. do it if your kid is looking to get on the ice, but nothing special there.
Exactly. Just another spring/summer tournament. My son's regular season coach is using it as a team building exercise to just get the team out there to skate together and compete together before we get to the regular season. The team has a lot of new players for the coming season, so just a chance to get them together to play. Could care less how they do. If your son was invited to play, then go for it. Ice time is ice time if he wants to do it.
We have visited a few preps this past winter/spring and coaches have asked if we were attending, so there might be some coaches in the stands or at least watching the roster stats. Granted we are not attending, might be worth it for some.
