The North American Hockey League has released its schedule for its 14th annual Showcase to be held from September 21 – 24 at the Schwan Super Rink in Blaine, Minnesota. The Aston Rebels will be facing four historically tough teams, two of which went to the league’s final four last season.
The following is the Rebels schedule:
Date Time* Away Home

September 22 12:15PM Bismarck Bobcats Aston Rebels
September 23 6:16PM Aston Rebels Minnesota Magicians
September 24 10:15AM Aston Rebels Wichita Falls Wildcat
The Rebels will be playing against two teams who faced each other in last year’s final four: Bismarck and Wichita Falls. The Wildcats lost to the Fairbanks Ice Dogs in the finals.
The Showcase is where all 24 NAHL teams play four regular-season games and is ideal for scouting purposes. It is a can’t-miss for every NCAA program, USHL and NHL team as they get their first look at some of the best and brightest hockey talent that North America has to offer. The Showcase historically attracts over 5,000 people in overall attendance, including more than 300 NCAA, junior and professional scouts.
The Schwan Super Rink is the largest ice arena of its kind in the world. The state-of-the-art facility features eight sheets of ice under one roof.
