VANCOUVER, BC -- The BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects game is the premier prospect showcase of the season. I was in attendance last night in the old Pacific Coliseum, to scout many of the upcoming top draft’s top players.

While many players did well -- this is a top prospects showcase, after all -- I have picked several that I think stood out above the rest. The following describes those players’ performances included with some general scouting info about them.

This also serves as a prelude to my first full assessment of the 2016 NHL draft class posting next week which will include many of the same names.
