Lavoie in Top Prospects game tonight
Raphael Lavoie will be on centre stage tonight when he participates in the 24th annual Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects game in Red Deer, AB.
In a showcase of the best prospects for the upcoming NHL Entry Draft, the Halifax Mooseheads forward will suit up for Team Cherry which will be coached by Ron MacLean. Lavoie is currently ranked as the 13th best North American skater for the draft. He is the highest ranked player from the QMJHL. The Chambly, QC native has 21 goals and 24 assists for 45 points in 43 games played this season, his third year with the Moose since the team drafted him 29th overall in 2016.
Lavoie will serve as an Alternate Captain with Team Cherry. He practiced on a line with Nolan Foote of the Kelowna Rockets and the highly touted Dylan Cozens of the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Tuesday. Lavoie becomes the 23rd Halifax player to take part in the prestigious game.
Tonight’s Sherwin Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game will be broadcast live from coast to coast at 11pm Atlantic on Rogers Sportsnet and in French on TVA Sports.
