Like many of the players participating in the BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in Calgary, Ty Edmonds found out he’d earned the nod from NHL general managers shortly before returning home to Winnipeg for the Christmas break in the WHL schedule. It made for a wonderful gift to share with his parents, Brian and Kim, and his younger brother Wyatt.
If there is one player among the 40 in Calgary this week for the 2014 BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game who can relate to the wintery first day of festivities here, it’s probably Haydn Fleury of the Red Deer Rebels. Fleury, who will celebrate his 18th birthday in July, is a prairie boy from Carlyle, Saskatchewan.
With 40 of the top junior players from the Canadian Hockey League arriving in this bustling National Hockey League city in wintery western Canada, there is a very solid chance this annual all-star game of sorts will capture plenty of attention from Calgary and area sports fans when Team Cherry faces off against Team Orr in the 2014 BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game on Wednesday night.
