Kale Clague - D Lloydminister
33GP 11G 23A 34PTS 44PIM
5' 11" 150lbs
An early favourite with good size and a terrific stride. Great both ways.

David Quennville - D SSAC Southgate Lions
32GP 16G 28A 44PTS 44PIM
5' 7" 155lbs
Northern conference AMBHL defenseman of the year. Terrific offensively and dependably defensively. Good penalty killer and a perfect powerplay quarterback. Impressed at the 2012 Westerns.

Dante Fabbro - D Burnaby Winter Club
Very impressive at Westerns. Mobile and terrific puck mover with a good shot. Played PP and PK on a stacked team. Great hockey sense and vision.

Matt Barberis - D Burnaby Winter Club
Quick and mobile. Good puck mover with a decent physical game.

Tyler Benson - F SSAC Southgate Lions
33GP 34G 50A 84PTS 44PIM
5' 10" 165lbs
Big forward with great hands and great vision. Works well in small spaces and can thread traffic with his passing. AMBHL North Rookie of the Year.

Sam Steel - F Sherwood Park Flyers
33GP 26G 24A 50PTS 10PIM
5' 7" 135lbs
Incredibly quick and elusive. Has amazing hockey sense and a decent defensive game. Top level hands and vision. Had a great second half to the season.

James Miller- D Spruce Grove PAC Saints
28GP 0G 12A 12PTS 26PIM
5' 11" 133lbs
Terrific skater with great transition game. Has good gap control and plays with an edge. Played on a weak team this year and should benefit from playing with a strong returning group next year.

Alex Rotundo - F Edmonton Knights of Columbus Squires
33GP 23G 17A 40PTS 40PIM

Tyler Steenbergen - F Red Deer Rebels Black
33GP 18G 30A 48PTS 48PIM
5' 9" 142lbs

Jaeger White - F Medicine Hat Hockey Hounds
32GP 28G 23A 51PTS 16PIM
5' 8" 146lbs
Benson dominated the Alberta League, breaking Ty Rattie's scoring record of 131 points by 15, with 146 in 33 games.
