Top prospects named for annual game

Thirteen Western Hockey Leaguers are among 40 who will skate in the 2011 Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

The 16th annual event will be held Jan. 18 in Toronto, showcasing some of the top draft-eligible players in Canada.

Bruins defenceman Mitch Topping is rated by the NHL’s Central Scouting Bureau, but did not receive an invite.

WHL defencemen making the trip include David Musil (Vancouver), Reece Scarlett (Swift Current), Myles Bell (Regina), Joe Morrow (Portland), Duncan Siemens (Saskatoon) and Tyler Wotherspoon (Portland).

Brandon goaltender Liam Liston received an invite as did six WHL forwards; Mark McNeill (Prince Albert), Ty Rattie (Portland), Sven Bartschi (Portland), Colin Jacobs (Seattle), Shane McColgan (Kelowna) and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (Portland).

The players are split into two sides for the game, Team Red and Team White.

Team Red is coached by Don Cherry, with Bobby Orr running the bench for Team White.

The two-day event also features a skills competition and three-on-three challenge.

The game will be broadcast nationally by Rogers Sportsnet and RDS.
