Former Jr. Kings Demko and Stevens to play in Amer. Prospects Game

USA Hockey unveiled the initial 40-man roster for this year's CCM All-American Prospects Game. This year's event, the second annual event, will be held September 26th at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center.

This year's selection process seemed to take into consideration some of the criticisms of last year's selection process. Only one player, OHL forward Greg Betzold, is in his second year of draft eligibility, compared to multiple second-year eligibles last year. There also seems to be more representation from the CHL and a representative from Minnesota high school hockey in Tyler Sheehy. There's still plenty of representation from the already heavily-scouted NTDP, but there's not too much in the way of notable omissions.
