DON CHERRY TO COACH PROSPECTS GAME: The Canadian Hockey league announced the team captains and coaches for their annual NHL Top Prospects game. CBC's Don Cherry will coach Team Cherry, while former NHLer Mike McPhee will coach Team Orr. The game is scheduled for January 16 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Rosters will be announced at a later date.
