Kelowna Rockets bench boss Ryan Huska will add another high profile assignment to his growing coaching resumé next month at Prospera place.

Huska will work alongside celebrity guest coach Mark Recchi behind the bench of Team Cherry for the Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game Feb. 1 in Kelowna.

"Being a part of a special event like the Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game is exciting, and to be involved with it hosted here in Kelowna makes it that much more special," said Huska. "I know how much this game means to the players and it will be fun to work with the prospects alongside Mark Recchi who had a tremendous career in our league and in the NHL."

Team Orr's staff will feature Vancouver Giants' head coach Don Hay and celebrity guest coach Pat Quinn.

Hay and Huska worked together earlier this month on the coaching staff of Team Canada at the world junior hockey championship in Calgary and Edmonton.

Huska also worked on the Canadian junior staff for the 2011 WJV in Buffalo, and on the WHL bench earlier this season for the Subway Super Series against the Russians.

The  CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game festivities Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 in Kelowna will feature two members of the Kelowna Rockets: Forward Colton Sissons and defenceman Damon Severson.

The showcase will mark the 17th annual showcase of the CHL's top-40 NHL draft eligible players.  The two-day event also features a skills competition and three-on-three challenge.

Ticket packages are still available for the two-day event and can be purchased at www.selectyourtickets.com or by calling 250-762-5050.
