The BCHL has announced the two rosters for the league’s 2022 Top Prospects Game Friday, Jan. 14 at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton, B.C.
The Bulldogs will have 5 players participating in the game with goaltender Hobie Hedquist, defecemen Braden Blace and Emanuelson Charbonneau and forwards Ethan Bono & Mirko Buttazzoni.
With 5 players, the Bulldogs are sending the most players to the event.
40 players, split into two teams, will compete against each other for 60 minutes to determine a winner in front of fans, pro scouts and NCAA coaches.
The rosters consist of players already selected for the 60th Anniversary All-Star Weekend, NHL Central Scouting listed and watch-listed players and players selected by B.C.-based NHL scouts to fill the remaining spots.
2001-born players were not considered since they are no longer NHL Draft eligible.
While the rosters are mostly split between Coastal Conference and Interior Conference, some 19-year-old players will play outside their conference to make the numbers work.
