Although there will be no Drumheller Dragon players playing at the CJHL Prospects Game on January 22 in Okotoks, the Dragons will still be represented.

It was announced this week that the Drumheller Dragons Athletic Therapist, Rebecca Kuresh will be on the bench with Team East at the game. Kuresh was excited for the opportunity. "It's an awesome opportunity for me. I'm really excited for it. I think it's going to be a good experience."

From the inital looks of things, Kuresh will be doing similar work to what she does with the Dragons. "I think it will be quite similar (as to my regular job) so I will be on the bench as a therapist during the game and then all the equipment stuff that team needs as well."

Kuresh still can't believe she got the opportunity. "I can't believe that it's my first year and I get this amazing opportunity. It's going to be exciting."

The CJHL Prospect Game features 40 of the top players in Junior A hockey in the nation. The game will be held in Okotoks on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 starting at 7:00 pm. Tickets are still available or you can watch the game on HockeyTV.
