The road to the NHL Draft for many of the Canadian Hockey League’s brightest stars and future National Hockey League talents includes the Kubota CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.
For 25 years this showcase has been a fixture on the hockey calendar and has annually featured 40 of the CHL’s top NHL Draft eligible players competing best-on-best before hundreds of NHL scouts in attendance and a nationwide audience.
With less than a month before the next wave realizes their dream, the CHL, in partnership with Kubota Canada, proudly present Top Prospects Memories. This program will feature the rebroadcast of Top Prospects Games from 2010-2020 between September 10 and October 5 at CHL.ca offering fans the opportunity to look back at the players who made their mark under the spotlight and remember some of the names who played in the CHL before finding success at the next level.
First overall picks like Taylor Hall (2010), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (2011), Nathan MacKinnon (2013), Aaron Ekblad (2014), Connor McDavid (2015), Nico Hischier (2017), and 2020’s top ranked Alexis Lafreniere are just some of the superstars these games include.
