On Monday, USA Hockey announced the rosters for the CCM All-American Prospects game, which will be played in Buffalo on Sept. 24 and feature 42 of the top American-born prospects eligible for next year`s draft.
It`s a roster filled with familiar names, including:
— Kiefer Bellows (pictured), the son of former Minnesota North Stars forward Brian Bellows.
— Matthew Tkachuk, the son of 500-goal man Keith Tkachuk.
— Luke McInnis, the son of longtime NHLer Marty McInnis.
— Max Jones, the son of former Winnipeg Jet Brad Jones.
— Graham McPhee, the son of ex-Washington GM George McPhee.
This event has become something of a marquee showcase for draft-eligible players. Last year`s game featured several first-round picks, including Jack Eichel, Noah Hanifin, Brock Boeser, Jack Roslovic, Colin White and Kyle Connor.
This year`s teams will be coached by Jeremy Roenick and Derek Plante.
