Fans eager to watch some hockey in North America can follow the young Canucks, Oilers, Jets and Flames prospects in the Penticton Young Stars Classic beginning this Friday. Neal Livingston over at Tend the Farm has nicely covered the Edmonton Oilers Rookie Camp and their participation in the Canuck’s Young Stars Classic, and that has encouraged me to meander over for a bit of hockey! But keep in mind Neal’s very wise words: “Enjoy the games, the roster, the players, but take it with a tiny grain of salt.” These are young prospects and we are only watching a small handful of games.
Following are the links to the participating teams’ Rosters and other details, including where to view and/or listen to the games. As games are completed, final scores and boxscores will be added.

***There has been debate over the Fox-Lipon Game Misconducts. At first it was thought it was a mistake using WHL rules for staged fights which shouldn’t apply, however now it seems it was due to the fact that the two dropped the gloves prior to puck drop.
