The CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game is coming to Pittsburgh!
The second annual game will feature 40 of the top American-born prospects who will be eligible for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft facing off in a display of top hockey talent from across the country. Players will be chosen by USA Hockey, in conjunction with NHL Central Scouting, with the final rosters expected to be announced in August.
"Pittsburgh is a city filled with passionate hockey fans and we're extremely pleased to work with USA Hockey in bringing the CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game to the CONSOL Energy Center this fall," said David Morehouse, president and CEO of the Pittsburgh Penguins. "It will be a unique opportunity for our fans to see the future American stars of the NHL -
some which will undoubtedly play in Pittsburgh - all on the same sheet of ice."
