Something I've noticed with the American players eligible for this draft is that the ones in the USHL universially have un-impressive stats. Seth Ambroz leads with 46 points in 56 games which is considerably worse than what Leblanc put up in his draft year (59 in 60). Rocco Grimaldi is talked about as being potentially the most skilled player in the draft only a little above a point per game with 25 points in 23 games while J.T. Miller and Tyler Biggs are considerably worse.

The USHL is a significantly weaker league than the CHL and there are 24 draft eligible players averaging a point per game or better there. I really don't know that much about the USHL and the US national developement team that most of these players play for so I'm wondering if there is a reason these players get this attention despite their less than inspiring statistics?
