Spokane Chief forward Luke Toporowski will participate in the 2018 USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game in September, as announced by USA Hockey. The event will be played Wednesday, September 19 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. Toporowski is one of 42 players from across the country selected to compete.
The event is held each September and serves as a showcase for the top American-born NHL Draft eligible talent. To date, 74 past participants in the event have gone on to be selected in the NHL Draft with 15 of those 74 being first-round picks.
Toporowski will become the second Chiefs player to participate in the event, following Kailer Yamamoto, who played in the fifth edition of the annual event in 2016. Yamamoto was a first round selection, 22nd overall, by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2017 NHL Draft.
Toporowski’s selection comes on the heels of a fourth place finish with Team USA at the 2018 Hlinka-Gretzky Cup, where he tied for the team lead with four goals in six games played. The 17-year-old has had an active offseason after recording 23PT (10G, 13A) and ranking first among Chiefs rookie forwards with a +/- of 5 during the 2017-18 season.
