Explore accommodations, dining, and attractions around Oklahoma City

Welcome to the official information blog for the BLPA DEX Hockey Tournament in Oklahoma City! We’re excited to host you from August 2nd to 5th for an unforgettable weekend of hockey, camaraderie, and fun. Here, you’ll find all the details you need about accommodations, local attractions, dining options, and more to make the most of your stay.

These tournaments are grueling. 5 games in 2 days is a tough task for everyone. But don’t worry, we have some tips on how to survive here


Address: 8000 S I-35 Service Rd, Oklahoma City, OK 73149




Last supper is a tradition as old as time itself. It’s our last group outing before the tournament is over. We do this on Saturday night as opposed to Sunday night because most people head home right after their games on Sunday. The location for this is still being determined but will be added here once it is booked. We will also talk about it at the OKC Draft Experience party and before games on Saturday.


Tournament Theme

This year’s Oklahoma City Draft Experience theme is Trailer Park boys. These uniforms will make you look good no matter if you’re a superstar or a 3rd line hockey player.
