The Brookings Blizzard Organization is please to announce that four players have been selected to participate in the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament in Troy, Michigan.
Drew Brevig, Jared Docken, Justin Moody, and Thomas Williams have been chosen to play for the Dakota team during the three-day tournament, February 18-20, at the Troy Sports Center in Troy, Michigan
In a very short period of time, the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament has become one of the most highly scouted events of its kind. Last season, over 160 scouts attended the event, which featured almost every NHL team and NCAA Division I school. Over a third of the players that competed in last year’s event ended up with an NCAA Division I opportunity. (www.nahltopropspects.com)
The Dakota roster is comprised of player from Aberdeen, Austin, Bismarck, Brookings, and Minot. Players selected from the Coulee Region Chill will compete for the Midwest team.
Austin Bruins Head Coach Chris Tok and Bismarck Bobcats Coach Layne Sedevie will coach the team. Tok and Sedevie were selected to coach the team because their teams finished the first half of the season one-two in the Central Division.
