The first-ever USA Hockey - All-American Prospects Game will take place on Sept. 29, 2012, at First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York.
The All-American Prospects Game will include 40 of the top American-born prospects eligible for the 2013 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
"It's a concept we've been talking about for a couple of years and we're excited to bring it to life in partnership with the Buffalo Sabres," said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey. "The talent level on the First Niagara Center ice on Sept. 29 will be exceptional. We view this game as an opportunity to gain additional exposure for hockey and help influence growth of the sport through showcasing the future stars of the game."
USA Hockey announced the players selected to compete in the game in early July.
