The El Paso Hockey Association announced Thursday that they will be joining the NAPHL and participating in the 14U Showcase Division for the upcoming 2021-2022 season.
“This is a huge opportunity to showcase the talent of our players to the country and will also guide in the development of our association as a whole,” said Hayden Kowalski, Youth Hockey Director for the El Paso Hockey Association. “This is the next step in developing our players to play against top-tier talent and eventually have them move on to play in the NA3HL and NAHL.”
Corey Heon, General Manager of the El Paso Rhinos Jr. Hockey Team added, “This is a great opportunity to further develop our youth – giving our players another platform to grow and mature as players is the ultimate goal. It is a very exciting time for our program.”
