Surrey Eagles head coach and general manager Cam Keith will coach the Coastal Conference team at the Top Prospects Game in January, while Penticton Vees president, head coach and general manager Fred Harbinson will man the Interior Conference bench.

The two coaches were selected after their teams had the highest winning percentage in their respective conferences at the holiday break.

Keith’s Eagles sit in first place in the Coastal Conference with a record of 19-4-2 and are six points clear of second place with three games in hand. The Eagles started the season on a 12-game winning streak and have the lowest goals-against in the BCHL.

Harbinson, who also coached in last year’s Top Prospects Game, has his Vees in first place in the Interior, as well as the overall league standings, with a 20-4-2-2 record. The two-time defending champions have a league-best plus-48 goal differential, as well as a league-leading 32.6 per cent power-play percentage.

The 2024 Top Prospects Game takes place on Jan. 19 at the South Okanagan Events Centre as part of the BCHL’s All-Star Weekend.
