While everyone on the roller hockey scene will be enjoying fun in the sun for the next two weeks, the action won’t stop at the Northtowns Center at Amherst, as they are hosting the North American Prospects Showcase ice hockey tournament. With a slew on teams from all age groups coming to Buffalo, the games will begin, with all four rinks in full force ice mode! NAPS dates back to 2004, where it began as a single weekend event in Syracuse as a means for young players to compete against others from around the world. With a mission to provide an elite AAA grade tournament encompassing the highest level of play, NAPS has grown and evolved into an event stretch over at least two weeks, with expanding international play and now an all girls division! So in the midst of our hiatus from roller hockey, if you’re looking to get your hockey fix, stop by the Northtowns Center to check out the competition. Otherwise, rest up because in a few short weeks, the Buffalo Wings summer session 2011 will really be heating up as we begin the push to the playoffs!
