Saw a few ‘94’s in Windsor recently. These kids all play midget major, which in my universe makes them stand out above those that tool around in the kiddy pool of midget minors. Partial evaluations:

Delaurier (Kapuskasing)—Big, fast kid with a knack for the net. Kinda has blinders on, but soft hands and strong on the puck. Had a good tournament with 10 pts in 5 games.

Boyer (Soo North Stars)—read a lot about this little guy. Good wheels, nice hands, sees the ice better than most kids older than him, seems to be a team leader out there. Small player though. Saw him dominated by bigger kids more than once.

Bednar (Mahoning Valley Phantoms--US) Huge kid, gonna get bigger, I’m told. Kind of a clunky skater Strong defensively but one of the most offensive D-men in this age group.

Lamontagne (Kapuskasing)—good skater, part of a group of strong ‘94s for this team, nice hands and can snipe the puck. Competes hard and keeps the game intense.

Dagnal (Pittsburgh Predators--US)—Skates with two very fast, older forwards. Big with soft hands, very strong on the puck, especially in the corners, drove the net like a truck. Cannot be moved in front of the net.

Giommi (Soo North Stars)—Good size and speed, skates with Boyer and Syrette quite a bit. Dominant line for that team. Nice passes, good vision for a young player.

Syrette (Soo North Stars)—Another big kid, though his size might be exaggerated. Great skater, smooth stride. Lotsa offense when he, Giommi and Boyer are together.

Other ‘94s that were there, but didn’t see much of:

Adam Lebel, Branden Plourde, Martin Levebrve. Drew Luciani ,Josh Hicks

Not sure where any of these fellas will fall into the draft, but they all get extra points for skating with ’91-‘93s and putting up decent numbers.
