Press Release2014 Draft Center

Brayden Point will get the chance to join the best of his draft class.

The Canadian Hockey League announced Sunday that the Moose Jaw Warriors forward will compete for Team Orr at the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

The 17-year-old Calgary native was added to the roster to replace injured forward Sam Bennett of the Kingston Frontenacs, who suffered a lower body injury.

In his second full WHL season in Moose Jaw, Point leads the Warriors with 19 goals and 42 points in 44 games. He’s the first member to represent the Warriors at the event since Quinton Howden and Dylan McIlrath in 2010.

Point is the second addition to the game after Jacob Middleton of the Ottawa 67s was added to replaced injured Saskatoon Blades defenseman Nelson Nogier.
