The CJHL Prospects Game was created to showcase the top 40 NHL draft eligible players in the Canadian Junior Hockey League. Player selection is a joint initiative of the CJHL and NHL Central Scouting. The event has now developed into a two-game total goal series between Team East and Team West, which is well attended by scouts from the NHL and Canadian and American colleges and universities.
New Format Announced for 2011 CJHL Prospects Event
Beginning in November 2011, the CJHL Prospects Event will be held in conjunction with the World Junior A Challenge. The newly-combined event will be a unique opportunity for CJHL stars to showcase their talent on an international stage and simultaneously provide CJHL prospects an unprecedented audience of scouts from across North America.
The CJHL Prospects Game features players from the CJHL's five Western leagues; the British Columbia Hockey League, Alberta Junior Hockey League, Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, Manitoba Junior Hockey League and the Superior International Junior Hockey League compete against the best players from the CJHL'S Eastern leagues; the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League, Ontario Junior Hockey League, Central Canada Hockey League, Ligue de hockey junior AAA du Quebec and the Maritime Junior A Hockey League. Each team consists of two goaltenders, six defensemen and twelve forwards.
By combining the CJHL Prospects Event with the 2011 World Junior A Challenge, the scouting community will have the unique opportunity to witness over 70 CJHL stars compete in two high-level events.
