SIOUX CITY, IA—The USHL and NHL released the rosters for the 2018 USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game and the Musketeers will have three players headed to Kearney.  Forwards Sampo Ranta, Martin Pospisil, and Samuel Salonen were all named to the team West roster for the game on January 9th in Tri-City.

Ranta has played in all 17 games for the Musketeers this year and leads the team in scoring with 7 goals, 4 assists for a total of 11 points.  Ranta has been impressing the scouts all season long and was just named as an A level prospect by NHL Central Scouting.  An A rating means that Ranta will most likely go in the 1st round of the this year’s NHL draft.  Salonen has played in 16 games for the Musketeers this year and has racked up 5 points on 2 goals and 3 assists.  Martin Pospisil has played 15 games this year, missing two due to a suspension, and has 4 assists and no goals yet this year.  Both Salonen and Pospisil were C ranked skaters on the Central scouting report.
