2022 NHL preseason prospects tournament rundown

From the East Coast to the West Coast, prospects tournaments are a chance to watch some of the best up-and-comers from each organization.

It’s their first chance of the preseason to show off in what is either a first impression, like the 2022 NHL Draft class, or the initial step to pushing for a role on a National Hockey League roster.

There’s a real chance for a prospect to leave his mark in the exhibition not-so-friendlies, with external competition from peers across the league.
