By Tony Saxon, Guelph Today
Two members of the Guelph Storm will be playing in this year’s CHL Top Prospects game.
Forward Cam Hillis and Ryan Merkley will suit up for the same squad at the game, which takes place in Guelph on Jan. 25.
Forty players from across the Ontario Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, and Western Hockey League will compete in the 23rd annual showcase of the CHL’s top prospects eligible for the NHL Draft. The 40 CHL players competing in the game were chosen by all 31 NHL clubs and were divided into teams by NHL Central Scouting.
“It’s a truly special experience for the players assembled from across the CHL who have the opportunity to showcase their skills before hundreds of NHL scouts and general managers in attendance in addition to the passionate hockey fans in Guelph and for a nationwide audience watching live on Sportsnet and TVA Sports,” said CHL President David Branch.
