Wolcottville player invited to prospects game

Karch Bachman of Wolcottville was one of 42 players selected to compete in the CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game on Sept. 25 in Buffalo, New York.

The game is aimed to feature the top U.S. players eligible for the 2015 NHL draft.

“This game has developed into an exciting opportunity for the best players in the United States to showcase their skills on a national stage,” said Jim Johannson, USA Hockey's assistant executive director of hockey operations.

“Input from the NHL scouting community is that this year’s game will feature the highest level of talent to date for this event. We greatly appreciate the support of the Buffalo Sabres organization, which has proven to be an outstanding partner in this event.”

Bachman plays for Culver Military Academy and is committed to play in college for Miami (Ohio).
