Forty five scouts from all levels of hockey converged on the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone this past weekend as Comcast-Spectacor hosted the third annual Liberty Bell Games.
The event showcased ninety of the top high school aged players in area.
“The focus of the Liberty Bell Games is nothing less than emphasizing our talented players,” said Lew Mongelluzzo, President and CEO of the Liberty Bell games.
“An integral part of our initiative, first and foremost, is to provide our players with a unique opportunity to be recognized and evaluated by our attending scouts and coaches. I would like to commend the 90 players that committed their time, talent and efforts to play.”
The ninety players were broken into five teams which played a round robin style schedule over a three day period. The games all had an exciting pace and kept those in attendance in awe of the skilled youthful hockey players.
Scouts were vigilant all weekend as they analyzed every shot and every pass the players made. The athletes that starred were pulled aside by scouts afterwards and given encouraging advice about their hockey futures.
The Liberty Bell Games provide young players with a great opportunity to display their skills for scouts.
This year scouts and coaches came from Hockey East, ECAC, the Atlantic Hockey League, Eastern Junior League, USHL, OHL not to mention 10 National Hockey League teams.
This year’s game received well over 250 applications from players all over the area making the process of selecting the top 90 difficult.
The continued success of the Liberty Bell Games has made this event one of the premier hockey showcases in the country.
