NHL Top Prospects Game tonight
Written by: Greg Holden
Chatham-Kent hockey fans have a treat tonight. Our own Dane Fox is playing in the CHL-NHL Top Prospects game in Kelowna, British Columbia. Televised at 10 P.M. on Sportsnet, the game is a showcase for the very best junior players in Canada.
Fox of the Erie Otters was selected to play for Team Cherry, who will face off against Team Orr. Players who have a good showing in this game can move higher in the draft. This game is known for being a deal sealer for many NHL scouts with respect to a players desirability.
Fox was traded earlier this season from the London Knights to the Erie Otters, who only have 6 wins this season. In spite of being on a last place team Fox has shone, scoring 7 goals and adding 3 assists in 9 games.
