Blackmun, along with teammates Dom Garcia, Gvido Jansons, Jack Leavy, Andrew Noel and Evgeny Yakovlev, will be participating in the tournament. All of the Rebels’ players, with the exception of Jansons, will be playing for the East Division which will be coached by Joe Coombs. Jansons will be playing for the NAHL Selects Team.
The Rebels contingent will leave on Sunday morning. The tournament will be held from February 27 – 28 at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, MI. Drew’s blog will start on the 26th and conclude on March 1.
The NAHL Top Prospects Tournament is one of the most highly-scouted events in junior hockey. Last season, over 220 scouts attended the event, which featured almost every NHL team and NCAA Division I school.
