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. I’ll always point towards someone like Mike Hoffman, who didn’t hear his name called in a draft until the Ottawa Senators called upon him in 2009. 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. It will also be interesting to see how many players from the Alliance Scout Top 25 rankings are taken as 24/25 were selected in 2017.
Stay tuned here all day for continuously updated coverage. It all gets underway at 9:00am.

The 2002 Huskies age group has been one of the most consistent programs over the past few season in the Alliance. For this upcoming season, this will be a Huskies team that nobody has seen before.

Large forwards, solid defense and timely goaltending led Hamilton to become a dark horse team that was able to upset some of the better Alliance squads. A lack of clutch scoring and the loss of top D Ben Sheppard ultimately led to the early exit for Hamilton. Click here for full article
