BCHL announces rosters for 2024 Top Prospects Game in January

The BCHL will once again hold a Top Prospects Game on Jan. 19 at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton, B.C. and, after a vote between BCHL head coaches and general managers, as well as input from NHL Central Scouting, the roster have been announced.

Players listed by Central Scouting on their Players to Watch list from October received automatic entries, while players who are already drafted and 2003-born athletes who are no longer draft eligible, were not considered for the team. The two rosters were split between Coastal Conference and Interior Conference players.
