The John Reid Memorial Tournament has a rich history of featuring future NHL’ers and is one of the most notable showcases of premier talent in Western Canada. Some of the most highly touted prospects in Bantam hockey we head-to-head at Servus Credit Union in St.Albert, Alberta last weekend.
Teams at this year’s tournament included the Calgary Bisons, Calgary Flames, Delta Green, Greater Vancouver Canadians, Leduc Oil Kings, Lloydminster Bobcats, Los Angeles Jr. Kings, OHA Edmonton, Okanagan Rockets, Prairie Storm, Red Deer Rebels, SSAC Lions, St.Albert Sabres, St.George’s Saints, West Van Warriors, and Yale Lions.
