WHL Rookie of the year for 2012-13

Who do you guys have as the favourites to win the WHL Rookie of the Year this year? Who looks really good in training camp and is primed for a big year?

Hicketts may give it a good push. Can't name anyone else from the league, at the moment.

Brayden Point- just because I think he's going to put up a lot of points!

Jones might be the best and still not win just because he's older 94' born and usually the award goes to the top 16 year old.

Thomson might have an outside shot at it. He's going to get a lot of PP time, and the Blazers are going to score a ton of goals this year.

Virtanen and Jones are definately the front runners, no doubt.

It should be between Virtanen and Jones.

Virtanen has been big for the Hitmen for the few games he played last year.

And I don't think it's necessary to explain why I think Jones will be in the running.

Heck Jones is probably the best Dman in the league already what a stud.
