The BC Hockey League announced today that Powell River Kings forward Thomas Belzil and Chilliwack Chiefs forward Savin Virk have been added to the Coastal Conference roster for the 2024 Top Prospects Game Jan. 19 at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton.

Belzil will replace former teammate Noah Eyre who is currently playing in the USHL, while Virk will replace Alberni Valley Bulldogs defenceman Jax Wismer who is out with an injury. With an extra skater on each roster, the Coastal team will now consist of two goalies, six defencemen and 13 forwards.

Belzil is a 2006-born skater from Trois-Rivières, Que. who has three goals and three assists through 26 games this season. He is committed to the University of Massachusetts.

Virk was born in 2007 and has seven goals, six assists and 13 points in 28 contests this year and is committed to Michigan State University. He is coming off a 1st Star of the Week performance last week.

Replacements were decided based on the original vote by BCHL head coaches and general managers, as well as input from NHL Central Scouting.
