Fun week: CHL Top Prospects Game on Wednesday

The annual CHL draft-eligible showcase gets played in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre Wednesday night and will be telecast in the U.S. on NHL Network.

They'll have a skills competition tomorrow (Tuesday) and then the all-star game the next night. For those who have been under a rock since late December, Gabriel Landeskog is out with the high ankle sprain, and his injury replacement, Shane Prince is in.

In honor of Prince, I'll have a "2 minutes in the box" feature with him posted here either tonight or tomorrow.

For more on the 2011 Home Hardware CHL Top Prospects Game you can visit their website here.

I think the huge venue this year is a gauge as to whether the game itself can draw an NHL-sized crowd to see the guys who will all hear their names at some point in St. Paul a look-see.

Should be fun!

Also, don't forget Bob McKenzie's mid-season top-60 will be published on TSN at 7:30 tonight, so that will be intriguing to see where his panel of NHL scouts surveyed have the players compared to Central's public rankings.
