Each of the TPT teams (88 players and eight coaches total) will each play two games with each squad having 22 players (13 forwards, 7 defensemen, and 2 goaltenders) along with a head coach and an assistant coach. Respective head coaches nominated any players that were considered for the prestigious event.

The NA3HL’s Frontier Division will be represented by two coaches including Great Falls Americans head coach Greg Sears, who will be the head coach of Team Bauer and former Great Falls Americans Assistant Coach and current head coach of the Gillette (WY) Wild, Ethan Hayes will be assisting El Paso Rhinos Head Coach Vinny Bohn on Team K1.

The Frontier Division will have a total 22 players spread throughout the four teams competing in the ‘all-star like” event including five from the Great Falls Americans, four from the Gillette (WY) Wild (Carson Kuche, Tristan Baker, Brock Trboyevich, Declan Young), three each from the Missoula Junior Bruins (Kieran Christianson, Jacob Saenger, Mi-Kwan Tallman), Helena Bighorns (Harlan Wojtusik, Andrew Deskin, Anthony Adleman), and the Bozeman Ice Dogs (Kadyn Fennell, Tanner Klockzo, Blake Nerney), two each from the Butte Cobras (Nick Bradshaw and Luke Schlensner) and the Yellowstone Quake (Dylan Rumpke and Austin Lawless).

The Great Falls Americans will be sending goaltender Trever Mellen, forwards Henry Chavez and Alex Jackson and defensemen, Tommy Janes and Tyler Lorring to Missouri. Janes and Jackson will be on Team Krampade coached by Peoria Mustangs head coach Steve Ortman, Lorring and Chavez will be teammates on Team Apex coached by Willmar WarHawks head mentor Kirk Olimb and Trever Mellen will be on Americans head coach Greg Sears’ squad on Team Bauer.
