2018 NHL Draft Rankings : Top 100 – March 2018
by Cam Robinson on March 16, 2018
https://dobberprospects.com/cam-robi...00-march-2018/

25 Akil Thomas: A buzz-saw of a player. Needs to add strength, but moves as quick with the puck as he does without. Having a strong year with Niagara. Likely better suited for the wing at the NHL level.

Akil Thomas – 2018 NHL Draft Prospect Profile
https://thehockeywriters.com/akil-th...spect-profile/

NHL Draft Projection
Thomas projects as a mid-late first round pick given what all he brings to the table. He plays in all situations and the stage isn’t too big for him. Most in the industry have him between picks 20-31. I have him slightly higher than that at number 17 overall. Teams are going to love his work ethic.

OHL PROSPECTS: Top 10 - 2018 NHL Draft Re-Entries
https://ohlprospects.blogspot.ca/201...e-entries.html

Honorable Mention (Defense)

Liam Ham - Niagara IceDogs
Probably not a serious draft option at this point, but felt Ham deserved mention because of how much he improved this year and because of how critical he was to Niagara's success this year. Plays in all situations for Niagara and logs a ton of minutes on an unheralded defense. He's only 5'10. And he's not the world's most dynamic skater. But he plays with a ton of heart and grit. And he's very intelligent at both ends. If the skating keeps improving, he's going to draw NHL interest by the time his OHL career is over.

Honorable Mentions (Goaltender)

Stephen Dhillon - Niagara IceDogs
Kind of a tough season for Dhillon after becoming one of the league's breakout goaltending stars last year (was the top player on this very list a year ago). His play was up and down, although he did finish the season exceptionally well (especially in the playoffs). Huge goaltender who definitely has pro potential. Will backstop a very strong Niagara team next year as an OA.

IF he does return, what is to be done with Colton Incze? I think he made the case that he has the ability to be a strong starting goaltender. Letting him rot on the bench really doesn't do his abilities and character justice. I'd hate to lose him but at the same time you have to do what's best for the player. Tough call.

Two number one OHL goaltenders! A tough decision for the Ice Dogs, but thankfully one from a position of strength. The possible new OA rule will factor heavily into that decision.
