The four-team tournament includes the host team, the Quebec Remparts, along with the Rimouski Oceanic, champions of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League; the Western Hockey League champion Kelowna Rockets; and the Ontario Hockey League champion Oshawa Generals.
The top-ranked forward is Kelowna right wing Nicholas Merkley (5-foot-10, 191 pounds), No. 23 on NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of the top draft-eligible North American skaters. Merkley had 20 goals and 90 points in 72 regular-season games for the Rockets, and five goals and 27 points in 19 WHL playoff games.
