ABOUT THE CJHL PROSPECTS GAME
The CJHL Prospects Game is one of the premier Junior A hockey events in the country and provides tremendous exposure for CJHL players to play in front of scouts from all over the hockey world – including the NHL, CHL, NCAA and U Sports.
The President’s Cup is awarded to the winning team in the CJHL Prospects Game.
From 2005 until 2008, the event ran as a single game, but starting in 2009 the President’s Cup was played as a two-game series where the combined score of the games determined the winner of the title.
The contest has now gone back to a single-game format along with player testing, both on-ice and off-ice, having been introduced. Since its inception, Team West has won nine times while Team East has come away victorious on five occasions.
