Not likely he drops #12 but #25 Will Cuylle (LW, Toronto Marlboros) is going to be an outstanding OHL player!

OHL PRIORITY DRAFT 2018 (April 7th 9:00am) UPDATED April 1

Scouting reports of 8 players the Ice Dogs will most likely not get a chance to draft.

1. Quinton Byfield, C, York-Simcoe Express #55 SUDBURY WOLVES
“Byfield is the best available player and prospect with the potential to be a franchise changing player, the way Connor McDavid was for the Erie Otters. In terms of physical attributes and talent, he has no equal in this draft class or most any other. The outrageous speed and skating ability he possesses with his 6’4”, 200 pound frame leaves you in awe. Simply put, if you cannot build a contender around this player, then you can’t build a contender around anyone." He's the real deal.”

4. Jamie Drysdale, D, Toronto Marlboros #4 (5' 11' 157 lbs)
"Drysdale has the tools and skills to do it all. He has decent size, and excellent acceleration and footwork. He is intelligent and can lead a team from the backend. He would instantly make the power-play better and he is a right shot defenseman that seems to becoming more and more rare."

6. Cameron Tolnai, C, Oakville Rangers #9
Cameron Tolnai’s speed, skill, and scoring touch are all high-end, and the fact that he works just as hard in his own end could make him an ideal first line pivot down the road.

3. Will Cuylle, LW, Toronto Marlboros #25
“Cuylle is 6’3" and 195lbs impact player. He is a powerful skater who utilizes speed and balance to physically dominate his opponents. A fantastic release especially off the weak side one-timer. A power forward who can play either pivot or wing.”

7. Danill Chayka, D, Toronto Jr. Canadiens #55 NOTE: Granted OHL Draft eligibility
“Daniil Chayka (born in Russia) is one of the top defensemen and one of the best players in the 2002 age group currently playing in Ontario. Possessing OHL size already (6-foot-3 and 180 pounds), Chayka has the physical attributes and hockey tools. Confident with the puck, he is a firm and accurate passer. With arguably the heaviest shot in the GTHL, he consistently overpowers goalies. A smart player who sees the ice and thinks the game well. Strong along the boards and tough defensively in one-on-one situations. He is an impressive skater who has a strong and powerful stride with good balance. Has the potential to be a top-pair defenseman.”

2. Evan Vierling, C, York-Simcoe Express #41 (5’11.5 148)
"Vierling is a fast skating, playmaking center. He has the speed and smarts to fit right in on either a power-play or penalty kill. He should be able to step in and contribute right away at both C and LW. The potential is high and he could become one of the better all-around players from the ‘02 age group."

12 Lleyton Moore, D, Toronto Marlboros #9 (5'-8'', 160 lbs)
"Moore is one of the most talented offensive defensemen to come out of minor midget in recent memory. Despite having size concerns, Moore has an exceptional offensive-skill. With comparisons and traits compared to Ryan Merkley, it won't be a shock to see Moore make an impact early in his OHL career."

Owen Power, D, Mississauga Reps #22
Owen Power is an excellent defenseman with a massive frame (6.04” 207 lbs.), two-way upside with great potential on the defensive side. Power is a fluid skater for his size with the puck on his stick and has great on-ice awareness to make efficient plays. His physical tools paired with his smart offensive instincts will push him into a top-two OHL blueliner very soon.

Top NCAA Committed Players (Top 5 Calibre Players)
5. Cole Perfetti, C, Vaughan Kings 5' 9", 170 lbs (University of Michigan)
"Perfetti is one of the top players this season in minor midget, and without his commit to the University of Michigan, the argument could be made that he has been the best player in the age group this season. He’s a smaller forward with lightning quick hands, elusiveness, and the best playmaking vision we have seen in the past few years. He has that wow factor to his game and is a textbook gamebreaker. He could dominate the OHL in a few seasons.

Antonio Stranges, LW, Little Caesars 16U 5’10”, 170 lbs (University of Michigan)
Stranges is top ranked skater playing south of the border. He is a top-four prospect in the 2002 age group and is right there with Quinton Byfield as the most dangerous attacking forward in the class. Separates himself far from the pack with his talented skating ability and explosiveness that is unmatched. Set up a teammate with a clever pass or cam fire a quick-release shot which is also one of the best in the age group. A lethal scorer who makes finishing look easy. Plays with a creative playmaking mind. The most highly sought teenage hockey players in North America moving forward.


Top NCAA Committed Players (Top 10 Calibre Players)
Peterson, Dylan C/RW CIH Academy White (#28) 6.03 181 (Boston University)
"A dual-citizen, Peterson is a unique and gifted forward playing his OHL Draft season with the Canadian International Hockey Academy (CIHA) in Ottawa. What makes him unique is the skating, skilfulness and height. Rarely do you see players at that height (6’3”) being able to skate the way he does. His agility and dexterity is incredible and it provides him with explosive initial burst, a tremendous and effortless top gear. Possesses dazzling stickhandling ability and a very capable distributor. Surprisingly does not yet have that great of a shot. Peterson has the gifts to not only be at the top in his age group, but also those of a top NHL Draft selection."


Top NCAA Committed Players (1st-Round Calibre Players)
Schingoethe, Wyatt L/C Chicago Mission (#14) 5.11 185 (University of Notre Dame)
Schingoethe is one of the top U.S. eligible prospects. A big, sturdily built pivot – who can dominate puck-possession in the offensive zone. Not a lightning-quick skater – but too strong to be knocked off balance, skating through contact and checks with ease. With his body strength, stick strength, and quality puck-skills, he protects the puck. Powers to the net like a bull without hesitation. Dominates the faceoff circle. A threat to score from anywhere - a very accurate shot and a lethal quick release. Schingoethe looks of a man amongst boys, with his strength, puck-possession dominance, and efficient smarts. A top flight 2002 prospect with the potential to be a future leader of a team.


Top NCAA Committed Players (2nd-Round Calibre Players)
Jacob Truscott, D, Little Caesars U15 #55 6.00 145 lbs (University of Michigan)
Truscott can impact the game at both ends and is the guy you want breaking out the puck.

Isaac Langdon, L- C, Quinte Red Devils #20 5’11”, 170 lbs (Clarkson University)
Isaac Langdon is one of the top prospects out of the ETA. He is a fast, excellent, smooth skater and puck-carrying threat. Makes difficult passes look easy by finding the right passing lanes. A dangerous scoring threat and a great shooter. Very reliable defensively. In terms of all-around talent, he has great potential and skill to become one of the better players from the 2002 age.

Jack Bar, R - D, York-Simcoe Express: #4 6'2", 175 lbs (Harvard)
Jack Bar is one of the top defensive prospects coming out of the ETA. A RH shot who has smooth mobility in all directions and uses his great feet to navigate all over the ice. He sees the ice very well and has an intelligent overall feel for the game. Defensively he uses his quick stick and footwork to create havoc on opposing players. Hard on the puck and gains body position with ease due to his quick and aggressive nature. Has a very hard, accurate shot. A very confident player - rarely see a bad pass or a turnover.

Donovan Sebrango, D, CIHA (Boston University)
Sebrango is as strong with the puck as he is without it. He has the size and strength to play a physical game in his own end, and translates that strength to offense where he is a crisp passer and has a hard shot.

The player listed on POST #14 appear to be the consensus TOP 8 without NCAA commitments. After those 8 players – and potentially a team swinging for the fences (POST #15), we come to a group of players who could potentially be the Ice Dogs first pick at #12

Dylan Robinson, C, Toronto Jr. Canadiens #8 (6'1”, 160lbs)
“Dylan Robinson is able to process the game at a higher level than most along with good puck control and smart puck movement tendencies. Robinson can develop into top line player who can lead a franchise for the foreseeable future.”

Josh Barnes, C/LW, Cornwall Colts (5-foot-9, 155 lbs)
"He is the most prolific finisher in this draft and he uses his speed to create opportunities and a quick release to put up a lot of points. Puck-skills and shot are through the roof good. As a coach, you put the puck in his hands on the power-play and watch him go to work. He can take over a power-play with his quick feet, quick hands, and quick release. Barnes could become one of the highest scoring players from the ‘02 age group.

10. Jean-Luc Foudy, C Toronto Titans #86 (5’10”, 153 lbs)
“Jean-Luc Foudy is absolutely one of the best skating forwards in the entire 2002 age group. Foudy consistently displays high-end speed, great smarts and excellent puck-handling skills. Currently an average sized 15-year-old, he protects the puck well and is a constant threat to make a high-end pass or to rip a quick, accurate wrister. He’s got patience, he’s got hockey sense, he’s got wheels, and his acceleration and lateral agility are through the roof. Foudy will no doubt be a key contributor at the OHL level and a strong top-six forward very soon.”

Michael Bianconi, D, Toronto Jr. Canadiens #93 (5’11”, 152 lbs)
“Michael Bianconi is a real three-situation type defenseman. Bianconi has impressive skating skills and an ability to think the game. Effortless smooth skater can make escaping pressure look easy. Tons of upside and potential at both ends of the ice. He is the type of player who has all the tools to be successful at the OHL level.

Ryan O'Rourke, L- D, Vaughan Kings #9 (6’0”, 160 lbs)
"Ryan O’Rourke a smooth-skating blueliner. He is a stalwart defender at one end and a weapon at the other end with a great slap-shot and one-timer. O’Rourke is a solid defending and puck-moving, and someone who can run a power-play and be used as a shooting weapon."

Cameron Peters, C, Toronto Marlboros #27 (6’1”, 180 lbs)
"Cam Peters has one of the highest ceilings in the draft and oozes NHL potential. Peters is one of the most powerful centres in the draft possessing an attractive mix of size, power, speed and puck-skill making him hard to contain. Peters has the ability to step into the OHL and immediately make an impact."

Stephen Halliday, LW, Toronto Marlboros #77 (6'3" and 205 lbs)
Stephen Halladay is a big elite winger - strong skating ability, skill and great hands. Physically, he is a dominant force on the wing using his OHL-sized frame to protect the puck and make plays with his high-end vision. He can easily beat defenders one on one. Halliday has the potential to be a top winger at the OHL level with elite playmaking ability.
