For Coulee Region Chill players Kevin Dineen, Joey Sofo, and Steven Quagliata the 2017 Top Prospects Tournament has come to a close. All three players were representing the Midwest Division of the North American Hockey League.
Monday was big for forwards Dineen and Sofo. Both scored a point with Dineen’s coming as an assist on Sofo’s goal. The Midwest, however, fell to the Central Division, 2-4. On Tuesday the Midwest fell again by a score of 2-4, this time by the hands of the East Division. No Chill players reached the box score in Tuesday’s action.
Over 220 NHL and NCAA Hockey Scouts were in attendance for day one of the tournament that took place in Plymouth, Michigan. The tournament continues to be a great platform year-in and year-out for players to get added exposure in front of scouts.
The three Chill players partaking in the tournament will join the rest of the team as they leave Wednesday morning for Alaska to play the and the Fairbanks Ice Dogs and the Kenai River Brown Bears the next two weekends.
