Despite the National Hockey League returning to regular season play Tuesday, the hockey world is still in all-star mode.
The NHL held their annual event on Sunday and the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic was seen Monday night on Sportsnet.
On Wednesday, it’s the Canadian Hockey League’s turn. The CHL Top Prospects Game is far more competitive than the other all-star games though, as it gives the players involved a chance for NHL scouts to notice them.
The 2012 Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game can been seen live across Rogers Sportsnet channels on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT
On Tuesday, the players will show off their abilities in a skills competition.
