The Hawks will travel to Boston this summer to compete in the Elite Division Showcase (Aug. 2-5) at the Haverhill Valley Forum in Haverhill, MA.
Last year, the Magnitogorsk Steel Fox competed in the Elite Division, but didn't make it to the Final round with a record of 2-2-1.
Omsk Hawks defeated Steel Fox in the semifinals of the MHL playoffs, and went on to defeat the reigning champion Red Army team. As a proven contender, the MHL will bring the Hawks over to represent their organization and compete against HNIB's Elite players this summer.
