Entering it’s second season the Champions League has 48 teams battling it out for the European Trophy which got underway Thursday, August 20th. There are teams from 12 different leagues competing and although you won’t find any Kontinental Hockey League teams competing, there are still quite a few very talented players in this tournament. A lot of these players competing have either been drafted into or have previously played in the National Hockey League. There will also be a few of the top rated prospects for the upcoming 2016 NHL draft, including the top rated player Forward Auston Matthews of NLA’s ZSC, along with Forward Jesse Puljujarvi of SM-Ligga’s Karpat who’s expected to be a top three pick and some expect he may even challenge for top spot, and also a little further down the rankings Forward Patrik Laine of the SM-Liiga Tappara who is expected to be a potential top ten pick. There are 182 players in this tournament who have at least suited up for an NHL game, before a couple back up only goalies included, to go along with 294 players who have had the honour of being drafted into the NHL.

Next is a breakdown of how many teams from each of these 12 leagues will be competing.
