It's getting to be late September, so that means it's time for the Boston Junior Bruins Shootout. 

Click here to start planning your weekend  with the Shootout schedule! 

This event, based largely at the New England Sports Center in Marlboro, Mass., runs from Friday through Monday, Sept. 21-24. The Shootout also uses five other Central and Eastern Mass. rinks, including NCAA Division 1 ice sheets at Bentley University and College of the Holy Cross. 

The Shootout features the first league-wide gathering of National Collegiate Development Conference (NCDC) teams of each new season, with league games being played between teams with otherwise long bus rides between their home bases. 

USPHL Premier and Elite teams from the Northeast and New England divisions also play league games. 

USPHL full-season U18 and U16 teams, as well as split-season EHF Selects teams, play as part of a tournament format with championship games being played on Sunday.

A BJB Shootout record of eight rinks at the New England Sports Center will be utilized. 

Each year, more than 130 NHL and NCAA coaches scout players at the BJB Shootout. Scout lists are available for the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Shootouts.
