The annual CHL Top Prospects Game will be played tonight, with some of the best undrafted junior players in Canada going head-to-head.

A few of the participants in the prospect showcase will be recognizable to those who watched the recent 2016 World Junior Hockey Championship. Canada's Julien Gauthier, USA's Alex DeBrincat and Matthew Tkachuk, and Sweden's Alexander Nylander will once again be in the spotlight, as will one of the two defencemen chosen as the best of this winter's junior tournament: the gold-medal winning Olli Juolevi of Finland

The players have been taking part in performance tests at the combine leading up to tonight's game.  Now, they'll show the numerous scouts who will be in attendance what they can offer an NHL team.

The puck drops at 9:00 PM EST / 6:00 PM PST.
