2024 Prospects Cup Preview

RED DEER – Up and coming second year U13 Male athletes from across the province are taking to the ice May 9-12 for the Prospects Cup.

The tournament kicks off Thursday (May 9) with North Grey taking on Capital Royal at 11:30 am. It is the first of four games to mark the beginning of the tournament. The championship game is set to take place on Sunday (May 12) at 3:30 pm.

All Prospects Cup games are streamed live on FloHockey. Entry to games in person is free.

Throughout the weekend, eight teams are facing off in a modified round-robin tournament at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre. Each team is comprised of two goaltenders, six defence and 12 forwards.

Players were selected at the conclusion of four Regional Camps last month in Calgary, Edmonton, Olds and Vegreville. Male born players born in 2011 who participated in a Hockey Alberta or Hockey Canada sanctioned program this season were eligible to try out.  Two teams from each camp were selected to compete in the Prospects Cup.


Over the course of three weeks, Hockey Alberta is welcoming hundreds of people from across the province to Red Deer for the Spring Showcase. The Alberta Cup launched the annual event, and the Alberta Challenge wrapped up the previous weekend. The Prospects Cup is the final event taking place.

Throughout the duration of the tournament a progressive 50/50 is taking place, with the draw planned for Sunday, May 12. Tickets can be purchased on-site or online.
