The time has finally come. All the work over the past six months has led us to this date. An exciting date for some players as they will hear their names called and find out where the next step in their hockey career.
As always, this is not he be all and end all of your hockey career should your name be passed over today.

Don’t take today as the end of a career but rather another step in the journey.
As for today, we will have you completely covered from top to bottom with all the Alliance players selected. In 2017, the Alliance had a record 46 players selected with 10 players going in the first three rounds.

Stay tuned here all day for continuously updated coverage. It all gets underway at 9:00am.
