Swift Current Broncos forward Jake DeBrusk will get to show what he's got at the 2015 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in St. Catharines, Ontario next month.
The annual game features 40 of the top draft-eligible players from across the Canadian Hockey League. DeBrusk, who has 17 goals and 33 points for the Broncos this season and is an A-level prospect on NHL Central Scouting's players to watch list, was named to Team Cherry, which will be coached by legendary coaches Don Cherry and Brian Kilrea.
Eleven other players from the WHL are also set to play in the game. DeBrusk will be teammates with Adam Musil of the Red Deer Rebels, Noah Juulsen of the Everett Silvertips and the Tri-City Americans' Brandon Carlo. WHL players on Team Orr, with Hall of Famer Bobby Orr behind the bench, include Prince Albert Raiders goalie Nick McBride, Ryan Pilon and Ivan Provorov of the Brandon Wheat Kings, Matthew Barzal of the Seattle Thunderbirds, Paul Bittner of the Portland Winterhawks, and Nick Merkley of the Kelowna Rockets.
The game will be held January 22nd and will be broadcast nationally on Sportsnet.
