TSN and Powerade are teaming up to showcase 24 of Canada's future stars today.

This week, the spotlight is on hockey phenom Tyler Benson.

Projected to be the No. 1 overall selection at the WHL bantam draft in Calgary on May 2, the 15-year-old is turning heads and breaking records.

He put up an Alberta bantam record 146 points in 33 regular season games this season with the Southside Athletic Club Southgate Lions.

There's even been talk about Benson applying for exceptional status from Hockey Canada in a bid to play in the WHL full time next year, a season earlier than the rest of this draft class.
