Cassels. Domi. Mantha. Rychel. They are names that many hockey fans are familiar with, the names of former NHL players. But those names also represent a new wave of talent, still on the way to hopefully making an impact in the pro ranks.

Hockey is in the blood of many players competing at the 2013 Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game and a remarkable number have a family history of NHL competition.

For Kerby Rychel of the Windsor Spitfires, it's his father Warren. Despite never being drafted, Warren Rychel played in over 400 NHL games across five different teams, including winning the Stanley Cup as a member of the Colorado Avalanche in 1996. He is now a co-owner of the Spitfires, where he gets to see his son play often.
