PENNSYLVANIA – The scouting world will get to see second-year Erie Otters forward Carey Terrance, Mohawk of Akwesasne, as he will represent the organization in the 2023 Kubota CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in British Columbia.
Slated for January 25, 2023 at the Langley Events Centre, the 2023 Kubota CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game will showcase the top-40 CHL players eligible for the 2023 NHL Entry Draft from across the Ontario Hockey League, Western Hockey League, and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
A group of 40 players were identified through a survey conducted with the NHL’s 32 teams, with Terrance being among 15 selected from the OHL.
Drafted by the Otters with the 10th Overall Pick in the 2021 OHL Priority Selection Draft, Terrance has suited up in nearly 90 games for the Otters, grabbing a career 44 points (22G+22A) including three game-winning goals as a rookie.
Named an Alternate Captain for the 2022-23 season, Terrance’s workload has increased to be a mainstay on the team’s Power Play (with five man-advantage goals) & Penalty Killing teams. In his sophomore season, the draft-eligible Forward has already surpassed his goals-scored mark from his first season and is just four points away from matching his total points scored in year one. A top-four scorer for the Otters, Terrance has found 20 points (12 goals and eight assists) in 27 games. Erie Otters General Manager Dave Brown had high regards for Terrance’s selection.
Earlier this season Terrance was named to NHL Central Scouting’s October “Players to Watch” List, earning a ‘B’ Ranking which indicates that a player is likely to be drafted between the second and fourth rounds of the NHL Entry Draft. Following the list’s release, Terrance has achieved 15 points (10 goals and 5 assists) in 17 games.
