Ryan Tompkins - Fredericton Canadiens - had a great start, long injury, looks to be finding his stride again.
Francis Theriault - Miramichi Rivermen
Jean Michel LeBlanc - Saint John Vito's - wish he had more to his complete game, but can't deny the points.
Spencer Buck - heard he quit hockey for soccer.
Liam Conrad - Moncton Flyers - started year in midget minor, called up.
William Bower - Saint John Vito's - Still a solid forward, hard working.
Kari Belec - Moncton Flyers - inconsistant, needs to use players around him more.
Zach Adams - OHA - no idea
Riley Scott - Miramichi Rivermen
Tristan Young - lost track of where he is
Patrick Daley - Fredericton Canadiens - always has puck on his stick, good play maker.
Luc Deschene - Fredericton Canadiens - looks to be the same as last year, not seeing growth, but still the best 97 Dman.
Jake Vance - Fredericton Canadiens - seems to be playing forward now, don't really like him there to be honest, one of the better Dmen on the team -
Matt Paul - Fredericton Canadiens - he's also been injured but is back now. He's got great speed and moves the puck well.
Will Thompson - RNS - only seen him once, not fair to give opinion.
Chris Becker - OHA - not seen him at all this year
Mitch Robinson - Moncton Midget Minor - not seen him.
Kyle Ward - Moncton Flyers - he's kind of like Tompkins, more of a complete player and has really improved, like him a lot.
Julien Galloway - Midget Minor - not seen him
Derek Goguen - prep
Tristan Meadows - gone to HS - not seen him
Jarod Stone - Midget Minor Fredericton - not seen him
Max Landry - Moncton Flyers - doesn't play as much but seems to be getting better.
I feel like scoutman1 has a good idea where most players are skill wise right now and what potential they have. He has Deschene, Leblanc, and Thompson as high draft (1-2 round) picks in the QMJHL this year. Jacob could be a 2-3 round pick maybe later. Buck did quit to play soccer at Shattuck's. Theriault has become inconsistent and Scott still needs to work on his skating for talking about the Rivermen. Young is playing Midget AA in Campbellton. Thompkins and Bower could be late round picks this year from a draft standpoint. Maybe Daley as well. I agree with everything you said about everyone else as well.
Other players playing Midget Major:
Woulds- Still needs to improve skating. Not playing very much.
Beaulieu- He's playing more aggressive but his and Woulds playing time has been greatly diminished.
Alward- Hasn't impressed me at all this year.
Robichaud- Sometimes plays well but he's inconsistent a lot.
McInnis- Switched to defense from forward so I don't have much to say.
