Plenty Of Spectacular Highlights From The CHL Top Prospects Skills Competition (Videos)
For those of us who enjoy watching hockey players show off their creativity during a shootout, last night’s CHL Top Prospects Skills Competition was must-see television. Led by Tomas Jurco of the QMJHL’s Saint John Sea Dogs, he and several other players displayed some spectacular never-before-seen moves that brought the crowd to their feet and should have you in awe.
In addition to Jurco’s four beauties, we also have a soccer-style header and a one-handed through-the-legs shot from the Portland Winterhawks’ Sven Bartschi, and a lacrosse-style move from Mark Scheifele of the Barrie Colts. Hopefully the NHLers can be at least half as creative as these kids were when they take part in their own Skills Competition on January 29 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
