The games will be played in Digby and Yarmouth, Friday and Saturday.

The CJHL Prospects Game was created to showcase the top NHL prospects in the CJHL. The CJHL Prospects Games feature players from the CJHL’s five western leagues competing against players from the CJHL’s five eastern leagues. Player selection for the annual CJHL Prospects Games is a joint initiative of the CJHL and NHL Central Scouting
Pierce of the Merritt Centennials (BCHL) will lead Team West as Head Coach.
“I’m very excited to work with this group of young men this weekend,” he said. “These players have a tremendous opportunity to showcase themselves and represent their region with pride. I look forward sharing this experience with them, and helping them maximize their efforts in the event.”
