The United States Hockey League announced the 40 players selected to compete in the 2013 USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game presented by CCM to be held on January 23rd at the L.C. Walker Arena in Muskegon, Michigan.

It is the second season for the event which will showcase many of the top players in the USHL who are eligible for the 2013 NHL Draft.  A total of 27 players selected are in their first year of eligibility for the NHL Draft. 

The selection process was completed in cooperation with USHL General Managers, NHL scouts and team personnel, and NHL Central Scouting.

All 16 USHL Member Clubs have at least one player selected to participate in the event.  The Waterloo Black Hawks lead with five players chosen while the Dubuque Fighting Saints, Lincoln Stars, Muskegon Lumberjacks, Sioux City Musketeers, and Tri-City Storm each have four players from their organizations named to the roster.

Congrats to Luke, Vinni, Ross, and Justin!  Great to see our younger, up-and-coming players recognized by the USHL, and the NHL.
