Western States Shootout

Marking the midpoint of the season, the Western States Hockey League returns to Las Vegas, Nevada from December 16-20, 2014 for the 14th Annual Western States Shootout.

The WSHL’s premiere event, the all-league showcase has averaged close to 100 scouts in attendance each season, from various NCAA Division I and III hockey programs and ACHA club hockey teams from across the United States. 

With an all-time high of 30 teams, each of which will be playing four regular season games, the Las Vegas Ice Center has been joined by the Sobe Ice Arena inside the Fiesta Rancho Hotel and Casino as the host sites for the event, making it so all five days will be packed with wall-to-wall WSHL action, as teams try to pick up valuable points before the two-week holiday break.

Games will begin in the early afternoon on the 16th and will conclude by early evening on the 20th, with teams that begin play on Tuesday finishing on Friday and those that start on Wednesday concluding the event on Saturday.

Once again, the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino is the official host hotel of the Western States Shootout and will be providing unbeatable room rates for families, fans and friends. With the distance between the hotel and arenas averaging nearly 15 miles, the WSHL is also working with a local rental car company to get a discounted rate for those coming into town. Both the hotel and rental car codes will be made available as we move closer to the event.

Further information, including the full schedule of events, will be released in the coming months. In order to formulate the most competitive match-ups, the game schedule will not be available until late November, as it is based off of standings at that point in time.

So put in your day off requests and get prepared for one of the most wonderful times of the year to be a hockey fan, at the 2014 Western States Shootout in Sin City!
