The Canadian Hockey League announced the 40 players that will compete in the 2018 Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game at Sleeman Centre in Guelph on Thursday, January 25. Included in the 40-player roster is 67’s defenceman Kevin Bahl and forward Kody Clark.
Coming off and sound rookie season, the six-foot-six Bahl continues to strengthen his game in his second season with the Barber Poles. Under the tutelage of Head Coach Andre Tourigny and his staff, the 17-year-old’s development continues to flourish.
Much like Bahl, Kody Clark is having a standout sophomore campaign with Ottawa. Through 27 games this season, Clark has already well surpassed his totals from his rookie campaign and isn’t far off being a point-per-game player.
40 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.
Team Cherry and Team Orr will be assigned at a later date with coaching staffs along with captains and alternates still to be announced. Click here for the complete 40-player roster selected.
The 2018 Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game will be broadcast live on Sportsnet and TVA Sports.
