Kitchener Rangers’ Michael Vukojevic to play in Top Prospects Game
14th December 2018

Kitchener Rangers defenceman Michael Vukojevic is one of 40 players who has been selected to play in the 2019 Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

The game is made up of the top prospects for the 2019 NHL draft from across the CHL.

“The Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game provides scouts and general managers the unique opportunity to evaluate talent competing in a best-on-best showcase,” said Dan Marr, NHL central scouting director. “All 31 NHL clubs contributed to the roster selection and have a great interest in this priority scouting event to see which players can elevate their game under the spotlight.”

Vukojevic, a native of Oakville, has appeared in 31 games with Kitchener this season, scoring two goals while also setting up seven others.

The game was held in Guelph last year with 10 of the 40 participants being selected in the first round of the draft.

This year’s event will be held in Red Deer, Alta., on Jan. 23, 2019.
