*UPDATED* - BCHL 20-year-olds for 2012-13:


Inspired by Alan's Small Thoughts At Large WHL blog, I decided to look at the number of incoming 1992-born players for the 2012-13 season.

This list is compiled based on what transactions I'm aware of at this point and the rosters as they are posted on the BCHL website.

It's a snapshot to see which teams have open spots for 20-year-olds and which ones have too many heading into training camp. I would expect this list to change quite a bit between now and opening night on September 7th.

As always, any corrections or comments are welcome in the comments section below.

  2. Absolutely! Each year they usually max out at 20 year olds and imports, I would expect the same this season.
