The Canadian Hockey League on Thursday announced that defenseman Ryan Pulock would not play in the 2013 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game due to a wrist injury that could sideline him two weeks.
Pulock will be replaced on Team Cherry by Jordan Subban of the Belleville Bulls in the Ontario Hockey League. The Top Prospects Game is scheduled for Wednesday at Metro Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at 7 p.m. ET.
Subban, who ranks 12th among defensemen in the OHL with 27 points on seven goals and 20 assists, is No. 17 on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary rankings of players in the league. The 5-foot-9, 175 pound blueliner is the youngest of the Subban brothers -- defenseman P.K. Subban and goalie Malcolm Subban.
