2011 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game

The company I work for has a box at the Air Canada Centre ... and I was given a couple tickets for tonight's 2011 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

The best players from the junior leagues across Canada were there. Lots of NHL scouts were in attendance so the players played hard to impress.

Box seats means you have great seats to watch the game and all the food and drinks you want.

Here are the opening ceremonies.

Team Cherry was coached by Don Cherry.

Team Orr was coached by former Maple Leafs, Wendel Clark and Doug Gilmour (Bobby Orr was unable to participate due to the impending birth of a grandchild.).

Here are Gord and I.

Here's some action during the game ...

There were a few fights.

Team Orr slaughtered Team Cherry 7 - 1.

The winning team hoists their trophy.

The winning team posed.

Despite the fights, both teams posed together.

It was a fun night!
