The Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) announced today the roster for Team East at the sixth annual CJHL Prospects Game. The 2010 CJHL Prospects Game will be played on December 7-8 at Credit Union Place in Dauphin, Manitoba.
The Team East roster is selected from the CJHL's five eastern leagues, which include the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League, Ontario Junior Hockey League, Central Hockey League, Ligue de hockey junior AAA du Québec and Maritime Hockey League. Player selection is a joint initiative of the CJHL and NHL Central Scouting.
The 2010 Team East roster is composed of ten players from the OJHL, five from the CHL, two from the MHL and LHJAAAQ and one from the NOJHL. Team East and Team West each consist of two goaltenders, six defensemen and twelve forwards.
The CJHL Prospects Game was created to showcase the top 40 NHL draft eligible players in the CJHL. The event includes a two-game, total goal series between Team East and Team West, which is well attended by local hockey fans, NHL scouts, and representatives from Canadian and American colleges and universities.
