The Ridge Meadows Flames will be hosting their annual  Flames Spring Showcase this season, aimed at putting new prospects on the radar.

“It’s for prospective players looking to make the jump to junior hockey,” said general manager Jamie Fiset.

The Junior B team will take 60 skaters on four teams of 15, as well as 12 goaltenders. The best of them will be invited to Flames camp for next season.

“We’ve found some pretty good talent at that camp,” said Fiset.

Registration is now open, and the event will run May 23-26 at Planet Ice Coquitlam.

All ice sessions are during the evening.

Players will get three intra-squad games, and will be given interviews with the coaching staff afterward.

Fiset said players should be 16, 17 and 18-year-olds.
