The tourney will definitely be interesting: mix Scheifele, Trouba, Lowry, Morrissey, Petan, Lodge, Lipon together and you've got some real skill brought to the table. Should be a fun tourney to watch.

PS: what are the "eligibility" rules for prospects in this tournament?
Judging from the last tournament, I'm pretty sure all prospects/rookies (non-NCAA) and players with a maximum of one year of pro (AHL or NHL) are eligible. Meaning Telegin, Melchiori, and Sol should also be able to attend.

The pool of players we have to go is already fairly deep. By position we've got:
Left WingCenterRight WingDefenseGoaltender
Adam LowryMark ScheifeleScott KosmachukJacob TroubaJuho Olkinuora
Ivan TeleginNic PetanJ.C. LiponJoshua MorrisseyEric Comrie
 Jimmy LodgeVinny SaponariJulian Melchiori 
 Ryan OlsenAusten BrassardBrenden Kichton 
 Lukas Sutter Jan Kostalek 
  Cody Sol 

We'll also likely have quite a few invites like last time. We seem to have an open forward spot, while we can also add a few more players to sub certain one's out as well. I expect we'll want to also get some scouting in for guys to also fill out open spots on the AHL roster, so quite a few invites should be getting subbed in frequently.
