The last, as you said was Etem in 07-08 where he put up 13-15-28 in 58 games.
It all just depends on the situation. Guys like MacKinnon and Cammarata were much more deserving of being on the Prep squad over someone like Noel. Shattuck's U16 squad didn't have a lot of highly skilled guys last year and their top scorer - Ryan Tait - went to the USHL. A lot of top scorers on last year's prep squad also have graduated. They clearly need someone with skill so Noel got the call. It's a cool accomplishment for him but it's far too early to read into it at all. Lets see how he does at that level first.
