USA Hockey on Monday announced the division of players that will comprise the second annual CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game on Sept. 26 at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
While all 40 players participating in the game are eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft in Philadelphia, there are currently 28 listed on NHL Central Scouting's Futures List as a potential first-, second-, or third-round draft pick. Nine players on the Futures List are currently starring for the United States Under-18 National Team Development Program in the United States Hockey League: forwards Anders Bjork, Jared Fiegl, Dylan Larkin, Sonny Milano and Alex Tuch; defensemen Ryan Collins, Jack Glover and Jonathan MacLeod; and goalie Blake Weyrick.
"This event has quickly grown into a great opportunity for America's best young players to showcase their skills at a national level," said Jim Johannson, USA Hockey's assistant executive director of hockey operations. "The Pittsburgh Penguins have been a terrific partner in putting on this game, which will feature the future stars of the NHL."
