Young Stars Classic format change

A significant change to the format of the Young Stars Classic this September in Penticton. 

Whle the Vancouver Canucks and Winnipeg Jets top prospects will be featured, both the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames have pulled out of the event.

Instead, the University of Alberta and the University of British Columbia men's teams will play each other twice. 

The tournament at the South Okanagan Events Centre is set for September 7th to the 9th.    

The Kelowna Rockets have had several players participate in the tournament in the past, including Dillon Dube, Kole Lind, Josh Morrissey, Jackson Whistle, Ryan Olsen and Adam Brown while Ryan Huska has coached the Calgary Flames top prospects.
