The contest will feature 40 of the top NHL Draft eligible players from across the entire 10-league CJHL taking part.
The line-ups will see 20 prospects selected from the five eastern-based CJHL leagues (MHL, LHJQ, CCHL, OJHL & NOJHL) taking on top 20 prospects from the CJHL’s five western-based leagues
(BCHL, AJHL, SJHL, MJHL & SIJHL).
The rosters will be chosen, in partnership with NHL Central Scouting, and will be announced at a later date along with the respective coaching staffs for the two sides.
“The CJHL Prospects Game brings together the top draft eligible Junior ‘A’ prospects from throughout Canada for on and off-ice testing and an East versus West game,” stated NHL Director of Central Scouting Dan Marr.
Having the opportunity to watch an entire group of prospects under one roof will be a huge benefit to all the scouts that will be in attendance.
“This is a major event for NHL scouting personnel to attend and view all these prospects at one venue and see them compete against their peers,” surmised the NHL CS Director.
Tickets for the CJHL Prospects Game are now on sale and are available via the Cornwall Colts (CCHL) office by contacting them at (613) 930-9300.
The cost for tickets is $10 each; $9 per-person for groups of 20 or more, while children 12 and under are $5.
