Default 2020 OHL PRIORITY DRAFT

PART I (NEXT LEVEL TALENT)

Next order of business for the IceDogs is the 2020 OHL Priority Draft. Using several different online sources, the following players are the consensus top picks.

Player names, ranking and scouting reports will be updated over the weeks leading up to the OHL Priority Draft (April). The list will also include 04 players with NCAA commitments.

Our list begins with the Undisputed Top 2 players in the 2004 draft class.


1 Adam Fantilli C (6.03 / 175) Kimball Union Academy (Prep)
<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – NEXT LEVEL TALENT
<> Selected Team Canada 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-22

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2018/10/...eport-profile/

PPL Instant Analysis: Fantilli played a crucial role in TRW 2019 OHL Cup Final, notched 5 goals and 7 points in his 6 GP and was nothing short of dominant despite his extremely young age (04). A powerful skater who features impressive size and agility - can power through opposing defences with absolute ease and can control the pace of play at both ends. A tremendous back-checker and sound 200 ft player, Fantilli is the top prospect eligible for the 2020 OHL Draft if he forgo the NCAA.

STEVEN ELLIS (HockeyNews): A dominant player - he’s no ordinary prospect. Fantilli was a top 20 player in the GTHL last year, and that’s saying something given that he’s a year younger than the rest.

2 Rutger McGroarty C (6.00 / 175) Oakland Jr. Grizzlies (HPHL)
<> NCAA COMMITMENT (Notre Dame)
<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – NEXT LEVEL TALENT
<> Selected Team USA 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-22

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/11/...ger-mcgroarty/

If he does opt for the OHL, McGroarty would be one of the most highly sought after prospects. Boasting terrific speed, intimidating size, a polished skill set and the ability to alter the course of any game

PPL Future Projection: Future is blindingly bright for McGroarty, skill-set to be a premier offensive player. Compared to Q.Byfield, McGroarty’s raw strength and polished puck-skills allow him to dominate.

PPL Three Players to Watch (Oct): Rutger McGroarty, regarded as one of the top prospects for the 2020 OHL Draft and the 2022 NHL Draft. McGroarty took Ontario by storm this past month. In two tournaments, McGroarty put his uncanny scoring touch on display. 18 goals in just 12 games, McGroarty led both tournaments in scoring showcasing his elite hands, IQ, and wicked release. It’s uncertain whether he will ever play in the OHL, regardless, McGroarty remains one of the most talented 2004-born prospects in NA.

thescout.ca
McGroarty was a man playing amongst boys. His game already has a pro look to it, such as his skating stance, powerful leg strength, puck possession and size. His shot possess an effortlessly lightning quick release and deadly accuracy. His vision is lights out. Makes very accurate slap passes. Has the frame and power to lower his shoulder and drive the puck to the net.

PART II (IMPACT PLAYERS)

Part II: Players identified as potential IMPACT players, that can have an immediate effect on a team’s success.

Impossible to rank them in any particular order – as each team’s scouting staff value different aspects of a player or position. However, gathering accurate information is when a team hits a homerun (e.g., A Thomas and P Tomasino).



* David Goyette LW/ C (5.10 / 155) Selects Hockey Academy
OHL VIDEO PROFILE: https://ontariohockeyleague.com/vide...-david-goyette
<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – IMPACT PLAYER

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/10/...david-goyette/

One of the top prospects eligible for the 2020 OHL Priority Selection. Of great speed, a stellar shot and innate on-ice abilities, Goyette is a game-breaking player.

PPL Instant Analysis: The Eastern Ontario Wild were an absolute force in the OEBHL. Goyette a shifty forward who paced the offensive attack with remarkable consistency. 30 regular season games 2018-19, Goyette scored 43 goals and 94 points in only 30 gams — indication of his lethal offensive abilities. A natural playmaker and potent goal-scorer, he is one of the most talented players eligible for the 2020 OHL Draft.

PPL Three Players to Watch (Oct): A superstar in 2018-19, Goyette is a wizard with the puck as both a sniper and a playmaker. Goyette is a notoriously smart player with unbridled skill and elite skating strength. With speed to burn and edge work that keeps defenders on their toes, Goyette is a can’t-miss prospect for the 2020 OHL Draft.

thescout.ca
Goyette is a well–rounded offensive player who possess high-end tools. An agile skater who can reaches top speed quickly. Has evasive skating ability at high speed to cut through lanes. His vision is already at an elite calibre. Goyette goes to the net hard. His release is a laser beam and gets pucks off his stick rapidly.

STEVEN ELLIS: Goyette will be huge pickup for some team at this year’s OHL Priority Draft.



* Ty Nelson RHD (5.08 / 155) Toronto Jr. Canadiens (GTHL)
<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – IMPACT PLAYER
<> Selected Team Canada 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-22

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/09/...lson-prospect/

Nelson has the skill-set to develop into a premier two-way defenceman at the OHL-level and beyond. A stellar skater who sees the ice well. Nelson will be selected very early in the 2020 OHL Priority Selection.

PPL Instant Analysis: In 2019, Nelson established himself as one of the top young defenders. A smooth skater who oozes confidence, Nelson can take control of the game at both ends. Back-checks tirelessly to prioritize and secure his defensive zone. He return to the Minor Midget level (GTHL) and ready to play a starring role in every situation.

PPL Three Players to Watch (Dec): Ty Nelson’s has immense skill and on-ice presence. A natural leader who consistently influences the outcome of JRC games. A creative playmaker who patrols the blue line with poise and confidence, Nelson is a difference-maker at both ends of the ice. A fluid skater with the speed necessary to get back into position defensively. Nelson plays a much stronger game and is very hard to knock off of the puck. Nelson has an elite two-way game.

Hockey News (Ryan Kennedy): Very much a modern-style defenseman, Nelson is a smaller player with great offensive tools. You can tell he thinks the game at a high level and he moves very well. He’ll be one of the top prospects for the 2020 OHL draft.

hockey prospects
Ty Nelson is a high-end puck moving defensemen who uses his excellent speed and edge work to transition the game and play in both ends of the rink

STEVEN ELLIS: A speedy, skilled defensemen, Nelson has incredible raw talent, fantastic speed and a great ability to start and stop quickly. His wrist shot has impressive velocity. There’s so much to like about Nelson’s game, and if he adds size, he’ll be a top-five pick in the 2020 OHL Priority Draft.



* Kocha Delic C (5.10 / 175) Toronto Titans (GTHL)
OHL VIDEO PROFILE: https://twitter.com/OHLHockey/status...00786722648064
<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – IMPACT PLAYER
<> Selected Team Canada 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-22

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/10/...e-kocha-delic/

An elite two-way center with high-end offensive upside. Delic’s greatest attribute is his skating abilities. He can reach impressive top speeds within his first three steps, and can handle the puck with confidence and creativity. Delic is able to handle the puck on a string and out-skate his opponents

Future Prospect: Playing the game at a high pace with tons of skill and creativity, Kocha Delic is one of the premier offensive talents available for the 2020 OHL Draft.

PPL Instant Analysis: A lethal offensive player, willing to play a gritty in-your-face style. Delic is most valuable when he has the puck on his stick, as the youngster boasts terrific handles and speed.

PPL Three Players to Watch (Sept): An electric offensive threat - a wizard with the puck. Displays top notch playmaking making and skating ability, elite speed and quick acceleration. He can handle the puck extremely well at top speeds. Delic an extremely skilled and flashy forward - can take the puck end-to-end with ease. Type of player who catches your eye immediately.

STEVEN ELLIS: Delic was easily one of the best players at the Bantam AAA OHF championships, Delic creates chances on every shift and has tremendous speed to separate himself from opponents. His mix of aggression, speed and size makes taking the puck off of him a challenge. Few players will impress as much as he will this coming season.



* Devin Kaplan C (6.03 / 200) New Jersey Avalanche U16 (T1EHL)
<>NCAA COMMITMENT (Boston University)
<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – IMPACT PLAYER

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/11/...-devin-kaplan/

Power forwards with speed and skill. Blessed with outstanding size and strength, Kaplan uses his 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame to toy with his opponents. Capable of protecting the puck with absolute ease before skating it into high percentage scoring situations, Kaplan is as dominant as he is promising — making him one of the most highly touted perspectives eligible for the 2020 OHL Draft.

PPL Instant Analysis: Quickly rounding into a premier power-forward. Kaplan is a dynamic offensive player who knows how to use his size - whether protecting the puck or surging up ice, Kaplan uses his frame to shield possession and overpower his opponents. Kaplan recorded 68 points in 44 games in 2018-19 — the youngster brings a unique level of intensity to the ice - racked up 99 PIM last season.

ISS Hockey 2022 NHL Draft Rankings #7: Kaplan is another big, athletic center who can simply take over a game. His skill-set resembles that of a classic power-forward, but his impressive hockey IQ elevates him above others. Very strong on his feet and eats defenders alive if they aren’t squared on to him. Difficult to budge from around the net and one of the best at re-directing the puck. Very good on the faceoff (59.5%).

Future Projection: Kaplan is a terrific young prospect and one of the most intriguing 2004 power-forwards. Eligible for the upcoming 2020 OHL Draft, Kaplan is committed to an NCAA program and may never set foot in the major-junior circuit. If he does opt to play in the OHL however, we could be looking at the second coming of Quinton Byfield.

* Paul Ludwinski C (5.11 / 160) Toronto Marlboros (GTHL)
<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – IMPACT PLAYER
<> Selected Team Canada 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-22

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/10/...aul-ludwinski/

One of the most sought-after prospects at the 2020 OHL Draft. Ludwinski is the type of player that coaches dream of; a true five-tool center. There aren’t many holes to Ludwinski’s game. An impact player with a motor that doesn’t quit. He can reach top speeds in just a matter of seconds and showcases impressive handles on the fly. Ludwinski is the type of player that can change the course of the game.

PPL Future Projection: Ludwinski displays all the natural abilities along with the work ethic to be a force at the OHL level and further. A dynamic skater who consistently plays the game at an incredible pace. With a tremendous understanding of the game and a willingness to do whatever it takes to help his team, Ludwinski is sure to be a sought-after prospect ahead of the 2020 OHL Draft.

STEVEN ELLIS: Ludwinski is making a case to be selected early next spring. He was consistently one of Toronto’s best players at the OHF’s. Ludwinski plays with urgency – doesn’t like to wait around to watch the play develop. Instead, he forces turnovers at a high rate. Ludwinski is the Toronto Marlboros’ best players.



* Pano Fimis C (5.09 / 160) Toronto Jr. Canadiens (GTHL)
<> SCOUTING NEWS SN – IMPACT PLAYER
<> Ranked top 5 selection OHL Draft
<> #1 Ranked Forward at the 2019 Beast Scouting Event
<> Selected Team Canada 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-22

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2020/01/...le-pano-fimis/

Fimis has the ability to single-handedly drive his team’s offensive game with startling consistency. Every time Fimis takes to the ice he is a force - a seemingly tireless engine and routinely out-skates his opponents. With a lethal shot, his hard-working nature, and his well-rounded abilities, it is abundantly clear as to why Fimis is regarded as one of the top prospects eligible for the 2020 OHL Draft.

PPL Future Potential: Fimis boasts the skill-set and abilities to flourish into a consistent offensive force at the OHL-level. Hard-nosed and competitive style of play, along with strong skating and decisive puck-handling abilities. Once larger and more mature physically, Fimis will undoubtedly come to dominate his opponents at the OHL-level and beyond.

PPL Three Players to Watch (Oct): Pano Fimis is the main reason why scouts flock to JRC games. The team’s most consistent and lethal forward. Plays a responsible 200-foot game. Fimis has a positive impact on all zones of the game. He showcases quick hands and can turn defenders inside out on a regular basis. With an accurate snap shot and strong vision of the ice, Fimis has become a go-to player for the Jr. Canadiens in all situations.

* Lane Hutson D (5.10 / 175) New Jersey Avalanche U16 (T1EHL)
<>NCAA COMMITMENT (Boston University)
<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – IMPACT TALENT
<> Selected Team USA 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-22

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/11/...e-lane-hutson/

A fast and fluid skater who can generate offence with ease. Hutson, with a breath-taking skill set, is one of the very best defenceman born in the year 2004.

ISS Hockey 2022 NHL Draft Rankings: A slick-skating d-man with no shortage of offensive poise. The knock on Hutson is his size: at 5.10/177 lbs not exactly an NHL dman typical frame, but anyone who looks beyond this - see Hutson’s calm demeanour, puck skills, impressive vision and an elite-level PP QB – a genuine top pairing potential. Hutson is far from physical in his own end, but has a high hockey IQ and positions himself to take pucks away before things become a battle in the corners, where he inevitably struggles.

Neutral Zone: Small but dynamic and exciting. Edge of your seat type. His feet are excellent; quick, fast and mobile. Can carry or pass it from his end. He is quick to defend and will dispossess opponents. Gets puck off wall, facilitated clean zone entries. Plays in every situation, sees the whole ice, is extremely athletic.

PPL Future Projection: A truly dynamic two-way defenceman and one of the top prospects eligible for the 2020 OHL Draft, although he will likely opt for the NCAA route. Hutson regarded as one of the top young talents competing within NA and a youngster whose future in the game is blindingly bright. Once stronger, Hutson should be able to ascend to the USHL or NTDP in the coming years with relative ease.



* Frank Nazar C/LW (5.11 / 170) Honeybaked U15 (HPHL)
<>NCAA COMMITMENT (University of Michigaan)
<> Selected Team USA 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-22

thescout.ca
An elite level player in all aspects of the game. Most noticeably, his speed and shot make him an offensive weapon whenever he is on the ice. Makes great decisions with the puck - regularly finding teammates or the back of the net. Formidable puck handling ability that beats defenders with crafty dekes and edgework. A fluid stride makes his play look effortless. He possesses high-end finishing ability with a quick snap of the wrist. Nazar is a high-end talent that dominates others at this age group and will be exciting to watch at the next level.

prospectpipeline
Frank Nazar led the 2019 Whitby Silver Stick in both goal scoring and points. Nazar was far more than a deadly offensive force - playing every game with passion and pace. With solid size and as an agile skater, Nazar solidified his status as a top prospect eligible for the 2020 OHL Draft.

<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – ELITE FIRST ROUND TALENT
<> Selected Team USA 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth)

thescout.ca
A puck moving defenseman who has great skating mobility to get himself out of trouble - maintaining speed with the puck on his stick. He sees the ice better than most at this age group. When he gets into the offensive zone he can really dance with the puck and create scoring chances. In addition, he has that dangerous scoring ability of a high-end offensive defenseman. Overall, well developed and ready to make a major impact at the next level

PART III (ELITE 1st Rd Talent)

The variance in assessment from one scouting website to another can be quite dramatic (e.g., thescout.ca, hockeyprospect.com, prospectpipeline, scoutingnews, ontariodrafthub, etc...).

Likewise the assessment of one OHL team’s scout staff to another teams (plus the NCAA factor) will see this next group of elite players go anywhere from 1st Round (Top 10 or Bottom 10) to 2nd Round.

Only 20 players can be 1st round selections, so regardless of where these player listed in PART III are selected they are potentially first round talent: The OHL has seen its share off elite 1st round talent drafted in the 2nd round in the last few years: Michael DiPietro, Robert Thomas, Jacob Paquette, Noel Hoffenmeyer, Krill Maksimov, Mackenzie Entwhistle, Declan Chisholm, Serron Noel, Jacob Ingham, S.Der-Argunchintsev, Cam Hillis, Riley Damiani, Kevin Bahl, Keean Washkurak, Michael Vukojevic, Arthur Kaliyev, Jack Quinn, …



* Cedrick Guindon C (5.09 / 155) Rockland Nationals (HEO)
<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – ELITE PLAYER
<> Selected Team Canada 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-24

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/10/...drick-guindon/

PPL Instant Analysis: A pure goal-scorer and playmaker. In 2018 2019, the youngster blasted home 48 goals and 48 assists for a total of 98 points. Maturity and poise. Expect Guindon to dominate the HEO this coming season.

PPL Three Players to Watch (Sept): Unanimous top HEO prospect. A smooth skating and highly intelligent forward taken the league by storm. Through one month of league action, Guindon is pacing the league offensively, posting 12 goals and 23 points through just 11 games. For reference, Mason McTavish, the 5th overall pick in the 2019 OHL Draft, had 16 points through his first 10 games last year. Guindon is a wizard with the puck and can utilize his skating abilities to make defenders look clueless with tricky edge work at top speeds. With quick and creative hands, Guindon excel at creating time and space. He is a gifted goal-scorer.

STEVEN ELLIS: A high-energy player with a fantastic wrist shot for his age, Guindon does so much right - aggressive on the attack, put himself in a dangerous scoring situation and he doesn’t back down from a physical challenge.

hockeyprospect.comGuindon is your 200 ft center, that plays outstanding in all 3 zones and can control the game with his high IQ, strong skating, quick release and his excellent puck control which allow him to beat opponents one-on-one. A very dynamic player that when on ice makes everyone better around him.



* Max Namestnikov LW (5.07 / 165) Honeybaked U15 (HPHL)
<>NCAA COMMITMENT (University of Michigan)
<> Leading scorer in several major MM tournaments – along with teammate Frank Nazar.

thescout.ca
Namestnikov can take over a game in an instant. A rugged style that seems to dominate play even with his smaller stature. An exceptionally strong skater with ability to pick up speed with some explosive crossovers. His shooting ability is his strong point with a wicked snapshot and a howitzer of a slapshot. He also possesses strong playmaking talent creating high scoring percentage opportunities for his teammates. Overall, he has become a dynamic forward on a strong Honeybaked team showing why he should be a top prospect in the upcoming draft.

hockeyprospect.com
Max is a highly intelligent player - sees lanes and passing opportunities that very few players seek. He has great skill in tight areas - wonderful hands to go along with a goal scoring ability and below average size.



* Matthew Jovanovic LHD (6.01/185) Toronto Marlies (GTHL)
OHL VIDEO PROFILE: https://ontariohockeyleague.com/vide...thew-jovanovic

<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – ELITE TALENT
<> Selected Team Canada 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-24

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2020/02/...hew-jovanovic/

thescout.ca
One of the strongest defenders in the MM-AAA age group. A dynamic two–way play style. He is a very technical skater with a long–low stride, elite edgework, strong lateral movement, and high top speed. He packs a serious wrist shot from the point and top of the circles. He is extremely assertive in his own end as he fills lanes quickly, contains players to the outside, and absolutely hammers guys when he gets the chance.

hockeyprospect.com
High-end skating ability matched with great size making him a presence. Not the go to guy on power plays but has good hard shot from the point and displays the ability to move the puck from the back end. His skating skills separate from his peers but if he had more puck skills he would truly be a dominant player.

His mobility as a big defenceman really stands out - able to skate his way out of danger. Jovanovic has the ability to read offensive rushes and jump passes to intercept them. .

He wins battles in the corners and in front of his own net by utilizing his big body and outmuscling opponents. He displayed good vision and executed breakout passes. While his offensive skills are limited, his complete game stands out.




* Hunter Brzustewicz RHD (5.11 / 180) Oakland Jr. Grizzlies (HPHL)
<>NCAA COMMITMENT (University of Michigan)
<> Selected Team USA 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth) Jan.18-22

thescout.ca
A formidable two-way defenceman. His presence on the ice is very commanding. His strong hockey IQ allows him to read plays well and contribute as a defensive shutdown player. Brzustewicz has qualities of a top-pairing defenceman.

hockeyprospect.com
Brzustewicz controls the game from the back end - extremely mobile rushing the puck. In the offensive zone, he is incredibly hard to defend with his mobility and puck skills. Defensively he is strong, but Hunter’s true strength is his offensive ability.



* Cutter Gauthier LW / C (6.01 / 186) Detroit Compuware U16 (T1EHL)
<> Duel citizenship USA / Sweden
<> NO NCAA COMMITMENT (As of Jan 24, 2020)
<> Selected Team USA 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth)

hockeyprospect.com
Gauthier has speed (great acceleration) and skill. Uses his size and speed combination very well taking the puck to the net and creating a lot of offense – displaying an arsenal of moves using both power and finesse. He also showed great skill and vision working the puck around the man advantage.

A very talented player. Guaither has a quick hard wrist shot, an excellent release, and a smooth set of hands. He has good size and has a powerful stride and good speed.



* Isaiah George LHD (6.01 / 178) Toronto Marlboros (GTHL)

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/10/...isaiah-george/

Isaiah George should be considered amongst the top defending prospects for the 2020 OHL Draft. With remarkable strength and skating abilities, he should have no problems adjusting to the OHL game. Fans will love his offensive upside, and coaches will love his defensive prowess. Isiah George appears to be a lock for the first-round of the 2020 OHL Draft.

PPL Instant Analysis: A strong, powerful defenceman - a difference maker at both ends. Named Top Defenceman at the 2019 OHF Bantam Championships. George is a force along the wall below the dots. Strong skater -dynamic along the blue line, displaying smart shot selection and an ability to get the puck through traffic.

STEVEN ELLIS: George is a talented two-way defender. A skilled playmaker.

thescout.caGeorge is a strong skater who possesses great edgework and high top speed. His heads–up style of play helps him to quickly identify best passing options. He uses his strength well to tie–up opponents in front of the net and battle along the half wall for loose pucks.

hockeyprospect.com
George displays high-end offensive skills: great skater, good shot and passing ability. George’s vision allows him to play with poise and read the game at a high level making strong breakout passes. His stickhandling and speed allowed him to escape trouble and quickly transition up the ice. Strong board play in the defensive zone although he is not necessarily a physical player. Isaiah has high end skating and defensive zone IQ. Plays a calm and composed game and never seems to be in a situation of panic with or without the puck and plays a sound defensive game.


* Tyler Duke D (5.10 / 165) Detroit Compuware U16 (HPHL)
<> Duel citizenship USA / Canada
<> NCAA COMMITMENT (University of Notre Dame)
<> Selected Team USA 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth)

PPL Instant Analysis: The younger brother of Dylan Duke — a top prospect selected by the Saginaw Spirit in the 2019 OHL Draft. Tyler Duke is a dynamic two-way defender. Displays remarkable poise and creativity for a 2004-born defender. Duke will certainly stand as a first-round OHL Draft talent if he spurns the NCAA for a major-junior career.

Duke is a catalyst. He can skate the puck from end to end with great speed, elusiveness, and deception. Displaying vision and offensive instincts. Dangerous with either his passing or shot. He makes a great first pass and does a good job to join the rush as well. In the defensive zone he was ok. He is lacking in size but rarely gets hit or knocked down. He is strong on his skates and very elusive when retrieving pucks. Overall one the best player on the ice for Compuware in all games.

<>SCOUTING NEWS SN – IMPACT PLAYER

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/10/...-dalyn-wakely/

An intimidating force, showcasing immense strength. He can level opponents with powerful open-ice hits, or effectively separate them from the puck along the wall. With a heavy shot, an electric release, and creative hands, Wakely can light the lamp. Dalyn Wakely should be considered a 1st round prospect. He’s got the size and strength to jump straight into the OHL next year

Wakely’s play will remind you Francesco Pinelli’s in the way he’s relentless, making plays rather than waiting for them.



* Aidan Castle RW (5.11 / 168) Toronto Jr. Canadiens (GTHL)

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2019/10/...astle-profile/

Aidan Castle should be considered one of the top prospects to keep an eye on this season. Castle simply needs to put that offensive upside on display this season.


thescout.ca
Castle has been a standout player from the beginning of the season. He has displayed his talents on a very strong Toronto Jr. Canadiens team. He plays a dominantly fast game as his skating could be one of his strongest assets. Each stride allows him to gain power and separation between him and his opponent. Pairing his skating with a nifty and crafty hands makes it tougher for opponents to get a read on him.

hockeyprospect.com
Smooth skater with great top end speed and work ethic. Need to see more consistent offensive playmaking to match is high end skill set. Skates very well with good mechanics in order to get to his top speed fast with quick feet but possess a long stride. Has displayed flashes of his various skills but is not consistent. He plays with good jump, solid vision and creative passing skills.


* Isaac Howard F (5.10 / 165) Shattuck St. Mary's U16

<> Selected Team USA 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth)
- Olympic Ice Hockey leading goal scorer (7) – including two hatricks.
- 1st Team All-Star


hockeyprospect.com
Nov 2019: Howard is known for his natural goal scoring ability. He has nice hands and puck possession ability. On the offensive attack every shift. Howard is very skilled with the puck and can dominate possession in the offensive zone. However, there are some concerns about his overall game: takes long shift, often show little interest in playing in the defensive zone and does not always battle for pucks very hard. There was no question about his elite offensive talent, but his overall game is of some concerned but with maturity can certainly develop.

PART IV (1st / 2nd Rd High-End Talent)

The scouting reports and ranking of this next group vary greatly from one scouting website to another (Note: NCAA commitments affect rankings). Range anywhere from a mid-1st round to late 2nd round selection. However, the pre-draft scouting reports on all these players indicate a high-upside to play at the next level.




* Carson Christy C (5.11 /155 ) Oshawa Jr. Generals (ETA)

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2020/01/...uting-profile/

Carson Christy — a dynamic forward who is quickly developing into one of the most lethal goal-scorers eligible for the 2020 OHL Draft. Christy should and could be chosen anywhere from the late first round to the second round. He has room to improve before ascending to the OHL-level, but so do all players of his age. We could be talking about a future 40-goal scorer at the Major Junior level. Christy’s work ethic and productivity are simply that potent.

Zak plays a good all-around offensive game and shows the skills necessary to make him a highly sought after prospect. A natural goal scorer, Zak also displays solid playmaking skills.

Can see plays develop and makes intelligent reads. Drives the net using change of pace and his body to get by defenders – this well become more challenging at the next level as his speed and acceleration are good, but not great

OHL VIDEO PROFILE https://ontariohockeyleague.com/vide...-hunter-haight
<> #2 rated prospect in the Alliance

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2020/02/...hunter-haight/

thescout.ca
Haight is a dominant shooter. He possesses a nice tempo speed and can blow past defenders. In addition to his skating, he also possesses a strong stickhandling ability. His dominant shooting ability places him as one of the top snipers in the league. He is extremely accurate in picking corners with his forceful laser shot

hockeyprospect.com (Jan 2020)
Displays speed and skilled pass. One of the smoothest skaters in the draft, good size/frame, solid at the faceoff dot, winning the majority of draws he takes. Demonstrates a very high end battle and drive. A very slick passer moving the puck in and around attackers quite easily. Reads and anticipates the play very well which helps him keep or get possession of the puck. Is a step ahead in his thinking - very high IQ and ability

He lacks strength to win battles against bigger players. He can gain speed with the puck and pushes the defense
back. Once he gains strength he will be an impact player.


Alliance Prospect Showcase Game: Reliable in all roles and zones on the ice, who skates very well and can crank up his level up play when necessary. He has a decent frame to grow into, handles himself well physically battling down low. He is an excellent skater. Makes very hard accurate passes. Offensive zone: He goes to the net and is good in the paint battling for pucks position.

Showed a lot of talent: elite hands and skating . That being said it looks like he does not understand how dominant he can be with the combination of his speed, acceleration and shot. He could stand to carry the puck more and create opportunities for himself.




* Donovan McCoy D (6.00 / 175) Quinte Red Devils (ETA)
OHL VIDEO PROFILE: https://ontariohockeyleague.com/vide...-donovan-mccoy

PPL Instant Analysis: A strong and stable defender. Calm and composed in his own zone McCoy regularly makes intelligent decisions with the puck and is by no means prone to turnovers. McCoy owns a heavy shot from the point. While his lateral mobility could use work, McCoy’s strong stride and two-way skill-set combine to make him a pillar on the blue line.

thescout.ca
McCoy has quietly placed himself as a top defender in the upcoming draft showing his defensive abilities with a moderate offensive upside to his game. Defensively, he can isolate and lock down the opponent’s top lines. Very minimal errors and precautionary play style. He is a smooth-skating defenceman, although there still needs to be minor adjustments to his game.

hockeyprospect.com (Jan 2020)
Defensively he is sound in holding his blue line with an active stick or being physical and his good feet make him hard to beat. Could be more poised in defensive zone break outs. On the PP, McCoy held the line effectively and distributed the puck well, although opted to shoot without a lane on occasion.

Oct 2019: A lanky player, Donovan is a smooth backwards skater with good footwork. Plays a defense-focused game. Additionally, many of his attempts to exit the zone were sloppy, opting to lob the puck out, along with somewhat optimistic passes through traffic.



* Nicholas Moldenhauer RW (5.11 / 162) Toronto Titans (GTHL)
<> rank #7 GTHL Prospects

hockeyprospect.com (Jan 2020)
Moldenhauer’s offensive talent was on full display –speed, effective shot and playmaking ability. Demonstrates quick release and ability to shoot with high-level accuracy while skating at top-speed. Even more impressive is Moldenhauer’s compete level and inclination for playing a two-way game. He finishes checks and plays hard in the corners.

Moldenhauer showcased his offensive capabilities by generating several high-quality scoring chances and scoring a beautiful powerplay goal. He is always around the puck and utilized his skating ability to beat defenders through the neutral zone. Very creative with the puck on is stick and has consistently displayed an ability to score with either patience to freeze the goalie or rip a quick , hard shot.

Nicholas is a high end playmaker/ goal scorer who shows incredible intelligence and skill with the puck but needs someone on his line to get the puck. He skating is good enough for the next level but does not separate him from his peers.

<> NCAA COMMITMENT (Michigan State University)
<> Projected 1st rd NHL Mock Drafts 2022

hockeyprospect.com
Filak is often one of the best players on the ice. He is a dominant player because of his skill and size but also has a very good understanding of how to utilize his tools to be effective. Filak is a power forward who plays with a lot of speed and strength. He already has nice size and should continue to develop into an enticing prospect.

He uses his physicality and seems to have the puck on his stick a lot throughout the game. He displays great work along the walls as well and very rarely loses puck battles. He showed a great combination of strength and skill.

Filak is a real dominant player. He has a lot of a good assets: big, strong, skilled, and very smart with puck. In his own zone, he is reliable in getting the puck out. Filak is a very good skater for his size. He transitions very nicely on his edges, protects the puck well, and has pretty good speed.

PART V (2nd Round Talent)

This group of players are primarily projected for the 2nd round - as result of the inclusion of players with NCAA commitments in the rankings, however, every year, a few of these players end up drafted in the 1st round (or even the 3rd round). Since each team’s scouting staff view and value different aspects of a player’s play – it’s impossible to accurately predict where a player will be selected, however, these are some names to definitely keep an eye on.
Note: Projections do not factor in the GKs (e.g. Kyle Downey) that will be drafted in round 1 and 2.



* Spencer Sova LD (6.01 / 175) Det. HoneyBaked 15
<>#9 OHL Eligible Prospects playing in the USA (e.g., A.Fantilli, #2 R. McGroarty, #3 F.Nazar)
<> Born Windsor, Ont

hockeyprospect.com
Spencer is a two way defenseman with physicality. He can beat a team in a variety of ways: skilled hands stickhandling, speed, powerful shot, big hit along the boards. Strong 1 v 1 defender. Able QB a power play using his ability to walk the line, but his strongest asset.

Spencer is a smooth skating defender with good size that angles well and makes good decisions with the puck. His vision is quite effective - can jump into the rush and handle puck well on the attack. A fantastic skater despite a unique technique.
A prototypical two-way defenseman with size, great hands, puck moving ability, and a big shot. He plays very hard in his own zone with a great stick and physical play. Able to knock players down and take the puck from them. Passes the puck clean and crisp.

Konyen is a high-end goal scoring forward who possess a ton of finish. He has a quick release and velocity to blow his shot past goalies. Konyen has the vision to find passing lanes to set up scoring chances. He is a well-rounded offensive threat whose pure goal scoring ability accompanied with a high level of hockey smarts makes him a sure step into the OHL next year

hockeyprospect.com
A skilled player with a high motor. Makes creative passes to his teammates. Evan is an intriguing combination of size, speed and skill. His speed and skating stands out as he was buzzing around the ice - showcasing his in-tight stickhandling.



* Shawn Ramsey RHD (5.10 / 160) Toronto Young Nats (GTHL)
<>#4 ranked GTHL player (hockeyprospect.com)

thescout.ca Ramsey is a two–way defender with a high offensive propensity and strong defensive play. Ramsey drives the play with strong skating ability and hard–accurate passes. Strong lateral movement and poise with the puck enable him to keep pucks in the zone. He has great shot placement from the blue line, allowing his forwards an opportunity to pick up rebounds or loose pucks around the net. He plays a very assertive style in his own end and rarely gets beat or misses an assignment. Constant readjustment keeps him in the best position to force turnovers, fill lanes, or lay a hit along the boards.

hockeyprospect.com (Jan 2020)
Shawn is a puck moving defenseman with a great top speed. He loves moving up in the play. In the offensive zone he gets pucks through not the hardest but great for tip ins.

Smooth skating, puck moving defensemen who is very calm and collected in his own zone in pressure situations. Good vision and passing ability in the offensive zone. Defensively, at times tends to back up too much and not force the opponent which gets him in trouble.


GTHL PROPECT GAME: Looked good in puck protection out of his own zone and showcased his high end skating ability. Can do what he wants with the puck and has strong stick skills. Needs to make plays faster. Has all the skills to be successful just doesn’t always execute cleanly.

thescout.ca TOP 10 PERFORMERS: 2019 Wendy Dufton Memorial Report Nov 6, 2019
A smart two–way defenseman who brings both offensive ability and vision as well as staunch defensive play. He reads the play well picking opportune times to jump up into the play. He has smart poise with the puck and knows when to curl away from pressure not force bad passes. An active stick defensively and sound positioning, he keeps the play in front of him making it difficult for players to get around him.



* Andrew Leblanc C (5.10.5 / 158) Southern Tier Admirals (SCTA)
<>#2 ranked prospect SCTA (hockeyprospect.com)

hockeyprospect.com
Andrew does a bit of everything on the top line for Southern Tier. Plays with a high motor and a good ability to sense where the puck is going. Has quick feet but doesn’t have a good top end speed.

Solid vision, passing a puck through traffic. Battles hard in the corners. Displays good speed. Opens up his skating stance (10-2) to see more ice and create more passing lanes of himself. Has the ability to change his direction very quickly which helps him slip past and maneuvered through defenders

Andrew is a slightly undersized centre who plays with good speed, is always around the puck, and has the skills to be successful at the next level. Hard on the back check, and solid defensively. Offensively he handles the puck well, has great mobility, vision, passing/playmaking and a hard shot that he can get off quickly. His speed is his best quality, but that also applies to his passing.

At the face off dot he is reliable and can be tricky. He moves around the ice quite well and hits with all of his size. Despite being undersized he plays hard and does not shy away from scrums. Keep an eye on Andrew. For an early selection I don’t think so but later round 2 or 3 is possible.




* Harrison Ballard F (6.01 / 174) York Simcoe Express (ETA)
<>#1 ranked ETA player (hockeyprospect.com)

thescout.ca
A big rangy player with frame and size for the next level. Strong edges and skates with speed and finesse. Gets to top speed in just a couple of steps and displays good hands. Uses his big frame to drive to the net and plays the dirty zone with strong presence. Strong hand-eye coordination with the ability to deflects pucks and score off rebounds. Ballard has size and skating ability along with the offensive ability to step in and play at the next level.

STEVEN ELLIS: Ballard, a dual citizen of Canada and the United States, is an athletic winger that’s full of energy and an offensive catalysts. Ballard plays a physical game and able to jump into the OHL right after getting drafted.

hockeyprospect.com
Offensively, Harrison always wants the puck. Has a relatively strong shot, but sometimes shows a tendency to follow the puck around the zone. Additionally, while he was present defensively, he did always engage the puck carrier, something he should utilize his big frame for. Despite his quick foot speed, Ballard’s first steps need to improve. His acceleration is largely dependent on a series of small steps, though he does show good speed.




* Jake Karabela C (5.10 / 150) Guelph Gryphons (SCTA)
<>#1 ranked SCTA player (hockeyprospect.com)

thescout.ca
Karabela is an offensive catalyst that has both the vision and soft hands to drives the net, finding open space in dangerous scoring areas. In addition, Karabela is involved at both ends of the ice, as he back-checks and battles physically with strong compete level. He possesses a powerful skating stride with nice top speed. Has an uncanny ability to sneak pucks out of scrums and create chances. Karabela has a lot of leadership type characteristics, playing a team first game.

hockeyprospect.com
Jake is a skillful player with a cannon of a snap shot. He is mobile with the puck and has great scoring touch – a pure goal scorer. Needs to learn to play 200 ft game. Displays great hands, great vision and playmaking intelligence to consistently be an offensive threat. Skates with great mechanics and has good lateral mobility. Plays with a high compete level and is not afraid to finish his hits. Handles the puck well in traffic. Decent frame that he needs to grow into, he is hard to beat on draws.

Very solid speed and puck pursuit, powerful skater not overly fast, but keeps it through the duration of his shifts. His acceleration not outstanding, but his drive and stride are very impressive. Smooth and effective skating allows him to separate from opponents and move around defenders

He reads the play very accurately and understands where the puck will be. A skilled hard working unselfish player with good passing ability and a solid shot, as a centre with his size he will likely need to develop his speed and strength in order to be an effective 5 v 5 player at the next level, but with some time and development he has the base of a good top 6 OHL forward.




* Matthew Poitras C (5.10 / 150 ) Whitby Wildcats (ETA)
<>#4 ranked ETA player (hockeyprospect.com)

https://prospectpipeline.ca/2020/03/...tthew-poitras/

hockeyprospect.com
An intelligent player with great skating ability. A puck possession centre and he likes to make plays by holding onto the puck and fitting it into tight windows. A true playmaking centre. He is all over the ice making plays defensively and in the offensive zone. He has a high compete and battles for every 50/50 puck.

Poitras is a difference maker every time he stepped on the ice. Relentlessly chases down puck, engages opponents, forces turnovers and wins battles constantly. Poitras also showed good speed and edges, working well in tight with quick turns.




* George Fegaras D (6.02 / 175 ) Richmond Hill Coyotes (ETA)
<>#6 ranked ETA player (hockeyprospect.com)

* Lorenzo Bonaiuto F (6.02 / 196) Toronto Marlboros (GTHL)

PPL Instant Analysis: Lorenzo Bonaiuto’s game is defined by his stellar skating abilities and speed in all three zones of the ice. Bonaiuto features solid size and the work-ethic necessary to single-handedly drive his team’s offensive attack. As a creative playmaker who features an improving shot, Bonaiuto’s unrelenting drive makes him a handful for opposing defenders to contain.

thescout.ca
One of the better shots in the age group, Boniauto has established himself as one of the strongest finishers in the age group. His size and strength contribute to his booming shot, which he can release at top speed. He identifies shooting lanes quickly and gets his shot off quickly. Pairing his size and speed together makes him very successful on zone entries, as he is very difficult to knock off the puck. He plays physically in his own end to force turnovers and gains a competitive edge over the opposition. If he is able to keep refining his skills, he will be a great contributor at the Major Junior level



* Gavin Hayes RW/C (6.01 / 160) Detroit Compuware U15
-USA citizen /Ranked #14 USA born players eligible OHL Draft
- No NCAA Commitment
-Brother (Avery) plays for Hamilton Bulldogs

hockeyprospect.com
Hayes is a winger with good size who skates and handles the puck well. May not be the fastest player but his combination of his size, reach, and speed is difficult to defend against. Hayes is confident with the puck making good decisions and looks very comfortable and confident in front of the net screening the goalie and looking for rebounds.

He plays a hard-nosed game mixed in with some skill. He gets in hard on the forecheck and plays a good physical brand of hockey - gets to the net and cause havoc for defenseman.

* Matthew DiMarsico F (5.11 / 168) Pittsburgh Penguins Elite
-USA citizen /Ranked #15 USA born players eligible OHL Draft
<>No NCAA Commitment

thescout.ca
DiMarsico is a dynamically skilled forward providing both goal scoring finish and ability to play a strong puck possession game. He has a calm and patient nature with the puck. He possesses some of the best hands in this age group to dangle through traffic, along with an advanced hockey sense to get into those soft areas and is a constant offensive threat.

* Nicholas DeAngelis LHD (6.00 / 178) Mississauga Senators

PPL Instant Analysis: Defence is the name of the game for Nick De Angelis — a strong and stable two-way defender. Already of impressive size, De Angelis is a smooth skater who makes crisp and confident passes to his forwards alongside his willingness to join the offensive rush. De Angelis’ mature game is something to behold given his young age.

thescout.ca
With one of the most advanced hockey IQs in this age group, DeAngelis is a defensive catalyst for this Mississauga Senators club. He has nice size and strength, which aid in strong skating ability and puck protection. Strong edgework and the ability to quickly process the play make him a high–success passer on the breakout and through the neutral zone. He regularly makes stretch passes through the neutral zone to spring his wingers into the attacking end, giving them an extra second or two to generate a scoring chance. His ability to maintain strong positioning and secure the puck in the defensive zone makes him the QB of his team’s end at even strength and a strong penalty killer. His style of play and skill set transitiona well to the next level

hockeyprospect.com
A solid defensive prospect who shows good puck moving skills in both breakout and offensive situations. Plays hard defensively with an active stick and physical play to battle on the boards or in front of the net

Good breakout passes and head up on rushes showcases his comfort level in puck possession. Where he stands out is his defensive shut down play - active stick and intelligently shutting down passing lanes. An interesting defensive prospect with offensive upside to monitor going forward.




* Justin Dezoete C / RW (6.01 / 160 ) Hamilton Huskies (Alliance)

hockeyprospect.com
Dezoete has great speed, mobility, agility and skating skills combined with high work rate on the fore-check and back-check. Sound offensive instincts. Rarely makes bad decisions with the puck. Among the best battling for pucks down low and for position in front of the net – a physical force. Skilled hands and shows vision and awareness of where his teammates are. Makes quick hard passes.

Justin is tremendous in the ability to combine size and skill. He was physical in all facets of the game. After a hit, HE continues to drive the net and get scoring opportunities. Dezoete showcases a quick release and relentlessness.


Alliance Showcase Game: Justin was outstanding. A centre with good size who is also a smooth skater, puck handler with solid vision. He shows good drive, mobility, puck handling and passing skills. As a big boy with good speed and mobility, he gets on opponents quickly creating turn overs, then uses body to protect the puck from defenders and find the best opportunities for himself and his team. Utilized on the side of the PP triangle for his shot and vision. His work ethic and consistency were very noticeable. His combination of size, skill, and work ethic make him hard to deal with for players at this level and if he continues to develop he could turn into a very strong and talented OHL top 6 forward.



* Jonathon Melee LW (6.01 / 185) Rockland Nationals (HEO)

PPL Instant Analysis (Sept 2019): Last year, Jonathan Melee skated alongside both Goyette and Guindon for the Eastern Ontario Wild and was equally impressive as a dynamic offensive threat. In his 27 regular season games played for the Wild, Melee potted 25 goals and 60 points before tallying an additional three with the Midget Rockland Nationals. Like his teammates mentioned above, Melee is a threat to shoot the puck as well as pass it and can keep his opponents on their heels. A shifty skater with speed to burn, Melee’s unpredictable nature will surely make him a handful this coming minor midget season.

hockeyprospect.com
Melee possesses an impressive blend of size, skill, and skating and if he develops consistency and a willingness to compete and battle every shift, he’ll be an intriguing prospect.



* Ryan Abraham C (5.08 / 150) USA Det. Compuware U15
<>US citizen No NCAA Commitment
-USA citizen /Ranked #11 USA born players eligible OHL Draft (hockeyprospect.com)

thescout.ca
Abraham a noticeable standout since the USA Select 15 tournament last summer. His advanced hockey sense drives his ability to make smart plays that result in offensive chances for his team. He is a calculated shooter who waits for opportunities before blasting a hard shot on net. In the defensive and neutral zones, he isn’t afraid to play physically to win the puck and force turnovers.

hockeyprospect.com
Abraham cemented his status as one of the best players in this age group at the Whitby Silver Stick tournament, as he was a dominant player throughout. He is a highly skilled player with one of the best combinations of skill and speed for this age group. To go along with his skill and speed he plays with a nasty edge which bodes well for him because he is undersized. He shows incredible shiftiness and effortless skating with near perfect edge work. An excellent PP player who can thread passes through seams or pick a corner with his shot.

Ryan is a small forward with great skill and compete - relentless and always around the puck. His compete on the back check, skill in small areas and scoring ability is impressive. He has great vision and impressive playing with Gavin Hayes as they complement each other.




* Gavin Brindley LW (5.10 / 150) Florida Alliance 16U
<>US citizen No NCAA Commitment
<> Selected Team USA 2020 Olympic Winter Games (Youth)

- propectpipeline.com is the only ohl draft prospect website that mention Brindley, however, they have his as one of the fasting rising prospects on their site (#58 to #31 to #20) and was a member of Team USA 2020 Youth Winter Olympics – that featured all the top 04s.
- interested to see if Brindley’s name appears on thescout.ca or hockeyprospects.com in their final rankings, nonetheless a name to be aware of it would appear.

scoutingnews.com
Gavin Brindley is an excellent skater and a natural scorer with plenty of explosiveness in his game. In just 15 games with the Alliance this season, Brindley scored 17 goals and dished out 25 assists for a total of 42 points. He has easily been his team’s top player this year often times dominant.



* Ryan McGuire C (5.09 /160) Burlington Eagles (SCTA)
<>#3 ranked Top 20 OHL Draft Prospects from the SCTA (hockeyprospect.com)

hockeyprospect.com
A skillful offensive player. He needs to be a 200ft player to be an effective player at the next level. He has no offensive question marks because he is such a good playmaker. If he learns to play the correct way, he will be a good prospect.

A fast centreman who handles the puck well and plays with solid pace/drive. He showcased his drive, balance, and speed to push past attackers. He has very good hands and agility that he displayed as he put the puck between the defenders legs and side stepped him while keeping his speed up. Defensively he sometimes skates himself out of position, but has the ability to jump back into position with his speed. He plays hard hockey regularly engaging physically and doesn’t like to lose battles. He can really lean into his opponents and send them flying with monstrous hits.

Ryan isn’t overly physical but doesn’t need to be with the style of play that he is. He needs to work on his
defensive game and assignments.


McGuire has good speed, and puck retrieval, showed good hands, hard shot. He plays with pace, not uncomfortable under pressure and not scared to use his body or take some rough housing from defenders



* Brody Crane C (5.09 / 170) Buffalo Jr. Sabres 16U (T1EHL)
<>NCAA Commitment (Penn State Univ)
- Canadian Citizen (Union, ONT)

Instant Analysis: Although he isn’t an intimidating physical force on the ice, Brody Crane instills fear in his opponents owing to his deadly his shifty skating abilities and ridiculously nasty set of mitts. A terrific playmaker who keeps his opponents guessing given his raw creativity, Crane can draw defenders close before turning on his jets and driving wide to the goal. A capable puck-protector despite his stature, Crane has the skill-set necessary to develop into a deadly OHL player should he forgo his commitment to Penn State University.



PART VI (THE NEXT GROUP)

These players have varying draft day projections but their average draft rankings place them in round 2 or 3. None of the players show up on any website as a 1st round pick.

ohlprospects.com
Among the games that I've been focusing on are American based teams to get an idea of some of the higher end U.S. players who may actually head North to play in the OHL. here are some thoughts on some players who really caught my eye, and who are likely draft selections on the 4th.

Evan Konyen (PIT) ICEDOGS GUEST - Power center who typically plays with DiMarsico in Pittsburgh. Loves playing the middle of the ice & attacking. Strong on the puck & has a great shot and release. Not quite as active away from the puck as his aforementioned linemate, but impressive. #OHLDraft

Tyler Catalano (STL) - MASSIVE kid who looks like man playing with boys (6'4, 200+lbs). Is comfortable using his size (net front presence and along the wall). Has good vision for a big man too. #'s compare to former OHL'ers like Garret Ross, Cole Cassels, Tim Gettinger #OHLDraft

Nathan Lewis (OAK) - Linemate of Rutger McGroarty and the two have great chemistry. But he's not just a second fiddle. Smart offensive player who moves well without the puck. Assertive. Very good release. #OHLDraft

Landon Fleming (OAK) - IMO, easily one of the better skating defenders available for the draft this year. Wish I had seen Oakland live this year to see it even better. But Fleming is such a strong puck mover, so fluid in his movements and so adept at gaining the line. #OHLDraft

Marshall Beaker (OAK) - Beaker doesn't possess the elite mobility that teammate Fleming does, but he really caught my eye with his calmness and decision making with the puck. Terrific exit passes and poise when holding the line. Right shot too. #OHLDraft

Chris Able (CHI) - Another right shot defender with terrific mobility & a late birth date (which could give him a guaranteed three years in the league). Is the true QB for the Mission, eating up a ton of ice time and kickstarting their high octane attack. Future PP QB. #OHLDraft

Carson Walters (CHI) - Certainly not the biggest kid, but he stands out with his ability to navigate traffic and shoot the puck. Great release and has the hands to create space for himself. Could definitely see him being a quality goal scorer in the OHL. #OHLDraft

Matthew DiMarsico (PIT) - Smooth and creative playmaking winger who shows very quick hands and an ability to navigate the offensive end. Was consistently impressed with his board work and ability to keep plays alive. Competitive away from the puck too. #OHLDraft

Vinny Borgesi (SKS) - Yes, committed to Northeastern, but worth listing. Strong skating puck moving defender who really does a great job of controlling the point with his feet & head. Teammate of likely first rounder David Goyette. One of the top puck movers available. #OHLDraft

I don’t think it’s overstating it to say this is the most important draft in IceDogs history. The 1st, two 2nds, 3rd rounders and later picks are the payoff for the season the Dogs are slogging through right now.

A two part Question. ..1 Any idea of high end imports that will go early. 2..The Dogs drafted Chanton in the 1st rd of the import draft last year, can they draft again in the first round of this years import draft ? They could potentially draft an impact top 10 ( 1,4,7)

I'll research that and create another thread at the end of this season and since they traded away Sopa - yes they can draft in the first round.

This is precisely the reason I created that doing it the London way Thread a while back.
Do we always need to go through the slogging seasons?
Build a good core of players and continue doing so.
When the time comes, all that would be needed is to add a player, maybe two to compliment the core group.
