Gabriel Landeskog, who is nursing an ankle injury suffered last month, will not be able to play at next week's CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.
The Kitchener Rangers left wing was the top-rated North American skater in NHL Central Scouting's mid-term rankings released Monday.
Replacing Landeskog will be Ottawa 67s forward Shane Prince. A 5-foot-10, 181-pound center, Prince leads the OHL with 53 assists and is second in the league with 74 points in just 41 games. He's No. 35 in Central Scouting's mid-term rankings.
The 2011 Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game will be held Jan. 18-19 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. It features 40 of the best Canadian Hockey League players eligible for the 2011 Entry Draft. A skills competition will be held Jan. 18, with the game the next night. "Hockey Night in Canada" icon Don Cherry and Hockey Hall of Famer Brian Kilrea will coach one team, while former Toronto Maple Leafs Doug Gilmour and Wendel Clark will coach the other.
