Here is my top 10 for the 2005 QMJHL draft:

1. Angelo Esposito - C - 15 - 6'01 180 - Playing Prep school in Shattuck. He is 50/50 on whether or not he will be going NCAA or going to the QMJHL. One of the best 89's in North America.

2. Alex Grant - D - 15 - 6'02 175 - Playing in the Maritime Junior A League. Jumped from Bantam to Junior and is his teams top defesnmen. Plays well in all 3 zones and QB's the PP. An expansion team would be dumb to pass up on him to build their franchise around.

3. Michael Biega - W - 15 - 5'11 165 - Playing for Salisberry prep school in Connecticut. Like Espoisito he isnt sure if he will go NCAA or QMJHL. Some have him ranked 2nd but either way the top 3 players are a teir above the rest of the draft.

4. Kevin Guerette-Charland - W - 15 - 5'11 169 - Playing in Magog Quebec Midget AAA. Has been on a torrid scoring pace since the season started. His brother plays for Victo and is considered a good NHL prospect. He will be an elite player in the QMJHL.

5. Logan MacMillan - W - 15 - 6'01 170 - Some dont see Logan going this high but the kid has skill. Playing for Notre Dame Hounds in SASK. PEI may be looking to trade up to take this local talent.

6. Michael Stinziani - W - 15 - 5'09 174 - Undersized but it isnt a big drawback. Has excellent skills. He isnt an elite type player but he will be an impact player in the league.

7. Stephen Lund - D - 15 - 6'03 187 - Playing for Dartmouth in NS, big physical defensmen. Has really progressed well since the beginning of the season. His skating is above average and he has a wicked shot.

8. Maxime Cliche - W - 15 - 6'06 196 - Playing espoir in Quebec city. He is my dark horse. VERY raw skills but he is a huge kid for 15. Good skills as well for his size.

9. Raffael D'Orso - G - 15 - 5'09 165 - A bit undersized but he has phenominal skills. Another goalie in the long line of great technical goalies from Quebec.

10. Jean-Simon Allard - C - 15 - 6'01 178 - Some had him going 1st overall for his draft year but his play has slipped. His team sucks though so that could be why his numbers arent where they should be. Very skilled player though and could be a mini-steal at #10.

Hey Laprise, what do you think of Pascal Anglehart ( foward ) and Sebastien Dube ( Goalie drafted by CapeBreton ) both play for SSF in Midjet AAA

Dube had a so/so year last in with Bas St-Laurent in Espoirs, i felt he had a VERY strong CSR Tournement and i actually predicted that he would be picked by CB in the 3rd round. He is a decent goaltending prospect. He has struggled this year though in AAA, especially considering the SSF defense is quite good.

I dont know much about Anglehart but from what i have heard he seems to be a decent role player and will probably be invited to a QMJHL camp in August.

I know some people involved in the Midget Espoir league in Quebec as well as the Head Coach's for a couple teams.

Also i go to Montreal quite often and i followed a lot of these players last year in Bantam so it isnt that hard when they reach Midget AAA.

Also i run my own website:

www.hockeyprospectsonline.com

It deals strickly with Midget aged players.

He started off with the Midget AAA team and had 2 points in 3 games then got injured. I think he was at with Team Atlantic when he really messed up his knee and torn something. He should be back some time in Jan or Feb from what I heard

From what I have heard Nick McNeil had a really strong Gatineau Kiwanis International Midget Tournament which would be pumping with scouts. I expect him to rise quickly and make the QMJHL as a 16 year old next year. Very dominant player.

La-La-LaPrise.....by any chance are you going to the Halifax/CBI game on the 15th? If so could you give a report on him. Dartmouth is playing CBT on the 15th and 16th....is there anyone from those two teams that you would want a report on...I should be at both games.

Its actually Kevin Maletto :)

He is small. 5'08 145!

He is decent...more than likely a later round pick. This is how i have the goalies ranked coming out of Quebec AAA:

1989:

Raffael D'Orso - 5'09 160 - EEM
Nicola Riopel - 5'10 175 - CAG
Jonathan Roy - 5'07 132 - SSF
Alexandre Clermont - 5'10 170 - EEM

1988:

Mathieu Cote - 6'00 180 - LLL
Danny Mireault - 6'01 195 - TR
Vincent Vanesse - 5'10 155 - LEV
Jean Parmentier - 6'00 156 - CCL
MA Perron - 5'08 141 - CAG
Nicolas Fortin - 5'11 160 - AMO
Mathieu Gauvreau - 6'00 180 - CCL
Eric Potvin - 5'08 160 - WI
Kevin Maletto - 5'08 145 - MAG
Kevin Lambert - 5'10 165 - LLL
Maxim Gougeon - 5'08 131 - GAT
Josh Brassard - 6'00 142 - WI
Jonathan Jobin - 5'11 166 - JON
MA Sauve - 5'11 146 - JON
Alexandre Gervais-Quessy - 5'07 150 - AMO

Other goalies in Espoirs: (Not in order)

Michael Dizgun
Matthew Dopod
Olivier Tourangeau
Antoine Lafleur
Anthony Ierfino
Matt Rossi
Francis Boulianne
Michael Denoncourt
MA Gelinas
Alexandre Szabadkai
Guillaume Tartre

Bottomline is this is a pretty deep year for goalies. There are also 3 bluechippers in NB and NS (Keeping, Black and Muir).

He wasnt allowed to play Midget AAA at 14. And was way too good for Bantam so he played JR A in Moncton. He has now been allowed to play Midget AAA and is now with the Moncton Flyers because the Moncton JR A team acquired a couple forwards in a trade.

He will go 1st overall in 2006 barring some kid coming in off the radar screen.

I am actually going to be at the RIM/HAL game on the 15th. But i should see CB west over the next month or so.

the scouts that make up the CSB list for the QMJHL have Nick MacNeil rated as a C* which means he is a 15 year old who has a good chance of being drafted as an underager.

I like both of them. Both play for Amos. Both are around the same size.

Labelle is an 89, he is having a solid year but I am not 100% sure he will be picked as an underager this season. If i had to guess id say someone picks him up in Round 5.

I see Desjardins, who is a year older, going much earlier. Late round 2 or early 3rd. He is having a great year offensivly. Some say he is mooching off of Lachaine and Joly, but he is still a good player.

When I asked you how you knew so much about the Newfoundland boys (i.e. - where they are playing), I apologize - I didn't need a list. More particularly, what I wanted to know is are you familiar or have you seen the Newfoundland boys play?
(Andy White, Colin Escott, Paul Roebothan, Mark Yetman, etc.) I think all of these boys are ranked on the CSL list that came out in Nov/Dec.

I havent seen Escott play...hew is playing JR B in Mass. A close friend of mine watched White play a bit last year and with the U17 team 2 weeks ago, I watched him at the CSR last year as well.

Out of ALL the QMJHL prospects i probably know the least about the Newfoundland kids just because it is extremley hard to go watch them play.

Do you do any scouting and if so, why don't you ever travel to Newfoundland to watch these kids play? The Confederation Cup (a big High School hockey tournament) is coming up Feb. 3rd - Feb. 6th (+/- on the 3rd). The AAA Leafs are supposed to be at Western on that week-end but rumor has it, Western kids want to participate in the Confederation Cup. It gives anyone who does scout an opportunity to take in all Newfoundland AAA players because most of them play for their high school hockey teams. Kids like Matt Carroll, Brad Bussey, Matt Squires, Justin Barbour and Mark Yetman play for Gonzaga. Alot of Tri-Pen kids play for Ascension Collegiate. Also, is there another preliminary draft list coming out soon?

I dont mean to be a jerk but save up the money its well worth it and just dont go to St.John's go all around Newfoundland! I live in central and we dont have a AAA team we gto to play with western and 2 players from my high school team play with them. Mike Roberts and Kirk Kelly but most people don't want to travel 3 hours ever saturday monring fro a pratice! we had a high school tournment in grad falls the other week with 10 of the top teams in newfoundland and not one scout was there! and then look out ont he west coast like stephenville i know on one goes up there and st.anothy as well its "to far out of the way"

This could be the reason why kids like Jason King and Michael Ryder werent even drafted in the QMJHL.

Mooseheads drafted Derrik Kent, who is from Foxtrap, in the 13th round!! And he played 4 years with the team.

Lots of late rounds steals come from the rock. It will change with the immergence of the new Q team. Before Halifax was given a team there werent very many Atlantic Canadians in the CHL.

Hey La-La,

Just to let you know, alot of the draftables this year have left the island to play
i.e. - Irving Cup; Atlantic PeeWee Cup (don't know correct name), U-16 team,
or with the program known as Atlantic Selects (each province would put in their own team)-this was run by Charlie Bourgeois out of Moncton and the Newfoundland team was called the Wildcats.

Also, this year all three AAA teams were at the Monctonian and the Leafs AAA team was in Hull. Were you at either one?

What's wrong with those boys. Should have told them you were going to be late - maybe they could have hung on. The problem with the Leafs team was it was too long of a road trip - bus, boat delay, rough boat, power outage in Halifax, etc.

This is very true becasue when my team won the AA's last year that was hosted in lewisporte we had 2 weeks to raise $12,000 we did it and we left liek 2 days before and there was a delay and then after the long bus ride and the boast we have an hour before out first game against moncton hawks we only lost 2-1 but still we shouldn't of really played that game no one was ready!

what's angelo esposito's relationship to phil and tony?

My brother has played with angelo at angelos former school in montreal, and i play with his younger brother john. i believe that angelo and john are NOT related to tony and phil, but this esposito duo is as good if not better. you should be looking at john, hes a younger 91, and this kid can play, he currently has more goals, then the next player in his league has points, he plays AA in the winter and AAA in the summer

hope this helps,

Its actually Kevin Maletto :)

He is small. 5'08 145!

He is decent...more than likely a later round pick. This is how i have the goalies ranked coming out of Quebec AAA:

1989:

Raffael D'Orso - 5'09 160 - EEM
Nicola Riopel - 5'10 175 - CAG
Jonathan Roy - 5'07 132 - SSF
Alexandre Clermont - 5'10 170 - EEM

1988:

Mathieu Cote - 6'00 180 - LLL
Danny Mireault - 6'01 195 - TR
Vincent Vanesse - 5'10 155 - LEV
Jean Parmentier - 6'00 156 - CCL
MA Perron - 5'08 141 - CAG
Nicolas Fortin - 5'11 160 - AMO
Mathieu Gauvreau - 6'00 180 - CCL
Eric Potvin - 5'08 160 - WI
Kevin Maletto - 5'08 145 - MAG
Kevin Lambert - 5'10 165 - LLL
Maxim Gougeon - 5'08 131 - GAT
Josh Brassard - 6'00 142 - WI
Jonathan Jobin - 5'11 166 - JON
MA Sauve - 5'11 146 - JON
Alexandre Gervais-Quessy - 5'07 150 - AMO

Other goalies in Espoirs: (Not in order)

Michael Dizgun
Matthew Dopod
Olivier Tourangeau
Antoine Lafleur
Anthony Ierfino
Matt Rossi
Francis Boulianne
Michael Denoncourt
MA Gelinas
Alexandre Szabadkai
Guillaume Tartre

Bottomline is this is a pretty deep year for goalies. There are also 3 bluechippers in NB and NS (Keeping, Black and Muir).


How high do you have Francis Boulianne? He was one of my friend when I was in secondary 1. This guy is very very tall, like 6'5 tall, but he isn't big. He's currently the starter for Midget Espoir in Jonquiere, he's the same age as me so I guess he is an 89. Anyway he wasn't that special when he was young but obviously everybody knew he could end up being something good with his size. His coach coached Deslauriers, and he says that Francis is a better goalie at the same age.

yeah he's very talented. i honestly thought he'd be tearing it up more than what he is though. had 14G 4A 18PTS in the last 13 regular season games. has 5Pts in 3 playoff games against a tough Saint John team. if he'd played a full season of midget and not back and forth from MJAHL he'd have run away with the scoring title, and moncton would not have finished 5th.

Francis plays for Lac St-Jean and i beleive he will be a 2nd round pick.

He is huge and quick. He has flown under thr radar but wait until the QMJHL releases their April draft list, he will be high.

I think he is getting a lot of attention because of his big size. Not saying he isnt a good hockey player, but he needs to work on his game quite a bit. However some team may actually take him, size can get you picked in the Q, especially a defesnmen. Bathurst took Phil Poirier 3rd round in a very deep draft and Phil is kind of like Boland, big, not overly quick and needs lots of work.

He could be a nice project for a team to undertake.

So Boland is more of a 3rd-4th rounder in the Q draft

I do a bit of scouting for my website but i know some scouts who give me information.

Its hard to say exactly where Boland would go, if a team really likes him he could go rd 3, 4 or 5. Since he is an underager he needs to be picked in rds 1-5.

I should of asked you this in the previous post. Have you heard of a player in NFld named Kyle Hynes. He also attends my school and looks like a great hockey player. I would think better than Boland. However, it is tough to compare a Forward with a Defender. I do believe he has been scouted. Thanks.

I have not heard of Hynes, sorry. I will ask a few people if they have any info on him.

I think Espo will end up going to the Q... he might scare a team or two so he might not go number 1.

I hope he plays in the Q though he's the best 89 in Canada IMO

wow, thanks for all the detail! :handclap:

what's angelo esposito's relationship to phil and tony?

any good kids coming out of newfoundland that you know of? the st.john's team will definitely take a few from their own province.

There are lots of unknown midget age players in Newfoundland that not one scout has seen. This is a crime. Large centres have better coaching but raw talent is the same anywhere. If you saw Brad Smith of the Clarenville Midget Team you would have a better opinion of Newfoundland players.

The Fog Devils Scout should have been travelling to Minor Hockey Midget playdowns this season. The top picks you guys seem to like would not look so good playing against some unknown players that I have seen this year.It may never come to light but Brad Smith could play in a league with your amazing Crosbie anytime. its too bad he may never get the chance.

Brad Smith had his chance. He was playing AAA midget at the begining of last season but quit! He was even on the QMJHL scouting list. Brad Smith is an okay player but not good enough to play major junior.

If youre good enough to play major junior and want to, you will. Like I have said, if you are talented enough teams will find you!

The unfortunate part of Newfoundland is the vast size of this province and the fact that the Fog Devils are just starting to get going due to the delay. Naturally, scouts will take in as many AAA games as possible because that is where you will see good hockey players all under one roof.

It is virtually impossible for scouts, coaches, etc. to take in every AAA game, every midget game that is on the go.

IMO, if you are good enough (the hard part of this is what are you comparing player "A" to?) perhaps someone could try and get the player a walk on to a training camp if they are really serious about playing hockey at a higher level.

I watched someone a couple of weeks ago that there was alot of hype about. He can play hockey no doubt BUT when people watch him play, they are watching him play against not so good hockey players. In doing this, quite obviously, this player is going to look like a superstar. When he stepped on the ice against other talented kids, you hardly noticed him on the ice.

It is all well and good to promote players but you have to look at who they are playing against first.
