After the last several years on B2TV, the NAHL are changing their Internet broadcast service to Fast Hockey and they will be making their debut tomorrow when the NAHL Blaine Showcase in Minnesota gets underway. You can watch every game live and can get them on Demand as well if you can't watch them live.
It all starts tomorrow morning as the Alaska Avalanche will open the showcase against the Aberdeen Wings, as for Southwest Teams kicking off their Showcase action, that will be the Corpus Christi Icerays facing off against the defending North Division Champion Traverse City North Stars.
Other games tomorrow include the Amarillo Bulls against the Michigan Warriors, Wichita Falls who goes up against Chicago who had a rough opening weekend last weekend losing all 3 games against Traverse City & a pair against the Janesville Jets. Later in the day it will be the New Mexico Mustangs and the Janesville Jets, then the Texas Tornado will wrap up the first day with a game against the emerging Motor City Metal Jackets.
To get the info on what you need to get on board and watch the North American Hockey League all season long, here's a Press Release on what you need to know to be on board this season.
In addition to the North American Hockey League, you can use your credits that you gain to help follow other leagues and events that Fast Hockey Broadcasts during the season which includes several international events including the World Jr. A Challenge, 4 & 5 Nations Cups amongst others.
In addition to the NAHL Blaine Showcase, Fast Hockey will also show the North American Prospects Hockey League Futures Showcase which will be from September 16-19. With some of these teams affiliated with the NAHL Teams, some are looking to maybe get a call up with a NAHL Team like Mico Solarizo had for a few games last year with the Texas Tornado and is expected to be on the team full time this season.

It was also announced that Mark Messier will be at the Showcase Event to help introduce his new helmet that he helped produce along with league Commissioner Mark Frankfeld and the project lead by Mary-Kay Messier. He will also do a ceremonial faceoff tomorrow at 10:30 AM at the kickoff of the Michigan Warriors VS. Amarillo Bulls Game.
The new helmet called the "M11" will be joining over 250 associations which brings head protection to the next level to prevent and lower the impact of concussions and head injuries to players all over the world. He will also be available to the Media for questions at several times throughout the day to ask questions and get reaction about the new helmets starting at just after 11:00 AM.
