January 8, 2015

 

Jackson Keane of the Winnipeg Blues and Lycar Kirklan of the Dauphin Kings have been named to Team West roster for the for the CJHL Prospects Game scheduled to be played Jan. 20 in Oakville, Ont.

This is the second prestigious event to be attended by Keane, 17, who recently suited up for Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge last month.

Paul Dyck of the Steinbach Pistons will lead Team West as Head Coach.

“I would like to congratulate the players from both teams for earning their position in the CJHL Prospects Game,” said Dyck. “It speaks highly to the quality season that they have had thus far and to their future potential. I am excited to work with this talented group and proud to represent Western Canada in Oakville.”

Team West includes 12 players from the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), 5 players from the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), 2 selections from the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) and 1 player from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL).

The CJHL Prospects Game was created to showcase the top NHL prospects in the CJHL as identified by NHL Central Scouting. The game features players from the CJHL’s five western leagues (BCHL, AJHL, SJHL, MJHL, SIJHL) competing against players from the CJHL’s five eastern leagues (NOJHL, OJHL, CCHL, QJHL, MHL). The winning team is awarded the President’s Cup. Player selection for the annual CJHL Prospects Game is a joint initiative of the CJHL and NHL Central Scouting.
