This summer will mark the return of the Young Stars Classic, which has not been held since 2018. The tournament was slated to be revived in 2020, but that plan ended up being scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some of the NHL’s most exciting future stars have participated in the Young Stars Classic over the years, including Elias Pettersson, Bo Horvat, Brock Boeser, Johnny Gaudreau, Matthew Tkachuk, Sean Monahan, Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Nikolaj Ehlers, and Kyle Connor.
The South Okanagan Events Centre can seat up to 5,000 fans and serves as the home venue for the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League.
