Here is a look at a few of the players who made a significant impact at the 2014 BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in Calgary.
The World U17 Hockey Challenge may be dwarfed by its bigger brother, the U20 World Junior Championship, but it provides hockey’s future stars potentially their first taste of international competition. Every year, 10 teams, including five regional Canadian teams, battle it at the U17 for a chance to claim the title as the world’s best for that age group.
While there appeared to be some nerves early on among the group of 40 players competing at the 2014 BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in Calgary, the teams were able to find a way to settle in and provide at least two periods of fast-paced, entertaining hockey.
There is a long history of players receiving a late call to participate in the BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game, then taking full advantage of the opportunity to make a huge impression. Brayden Point of the Moose Jaw Warriors has a chance to be “that guy” this week in Calgary.
