I think he means first player who was born in his 10th grade year. Becker was born in 1995, he was supposed to be in grade 11 last year.

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.

I'm pretty positive that Toews at the very least was a 15 year old 10th grader considering he went to North Dakota as a young 17 year old and guys like Okposo, Esposito, Etem or even Jordy Murray were either in 9th or 10th grade for sure when they played at 15. The statement is wrong regardless of intention.

It's certainly a nice accomplishment but I just don't see the need to fabricate facts to force a Crosby comparison on Noel. Let him be judged on his own abilities.

Agreed, but there really was no Crosby comparison, as there shouldn't be, he was just going by what someone on his twitter had wrote to him.

To me, he is a top 2 prospect for the Q, and seems to have an inside track on number 1. He is not a big time prospect like Crosby, Toews, or even a guy like Mackinnon, but he should be a high (top 15) pick in the NHL if he continues to progress.

Noel should go 1 in the draft.

Good for Noel. I hope he does well at it.

in a more "long view" sense - he's a great player in what will be a competitive draft year. Ultimately, it will end up being what it is (draft wise) - but I hope he is able to use his time in Mn to play as competitively as he can - and also to start to get attention for himself (the same way our young, skilled friends in Ont. and BC. are getting!).

Roy is very smart, complete defence man. He's going to be lights out.

CAG are strong this year.

Daniel Sprong will also challenge them.

Are you talking about 2015 NHL entry? By most accounts McDavid is the top guy right now with Barzal not far behind. Noel sounds like a great prospect though.

EDIT: I am pretty sure you were talking about the Q draft now

You can watch him play here vs. Team Southwest (MN-Elite) in a few minutes: http://www.s-sm.org/athletics/view-webcasts/

It's the new rink feed.

I should say he's #18, btw.
Kind of hard to see though.
He's with #12 Anthony Petrella and #23 Alex Rodriguez and is officially listed as third line center.

Marty Brodeur's son Anthony is in net for SSM.

Edit: Has the go ahead goal after two periods of play.

He is off to a good start with 3 goals and 5 assists in the first 6 games. Team leader has 10.

Has anyone seen Noel play this season? He has 18 points in 21 games on the Shattuck prep team, which is extremely impressive considering he is the only 97 born on a team which includes players up to 94 birth dates.

I know only a handful of players have made the prep team at 15, and that they're household names now.

I watched him three times via the stream I provided earlier, the Allstate exhibition game, and live at the US Nationals.
The streams are grainy, but I think I've gotten a feel for him now and he looks like he'll be a great player.
As some of the older comparisons said, he looks a bit like Nathan MacKinnon, as he's a great skater that plays really hard.
I remember one play in particular against Team Southwest where he grabbed the puck in the neutral zone and sped down the right wing, then turned on the extra gear and powered by the defenseman for a fantastic scoring chance.
It was a good display of his tools and was particularly impressive since he was playing against a bunch of 94's and 95's as a 97 and Minnesota high school hockey is the best in the United States.
He doesn't seem to get a whole lot of ice time, which is no surprise since he's so young, but he's looked good to me.

I'm looking forward to hearing what people who actually get to view him live on a semi-regular basis have to say.
It'd also be interesting to hear how the other big 97 name for the Q draft, Andrew Picco, has been doing.
I saw him last year at Nationals too, but haven't watched any of the webcasts.

Last I heard, Noel was a little undersized. Is this still true?

No, measured in at 5-10, 160 at Shattucks this year as a 15 year old. That is not huge, but is good size for someone that age.

OK that's good. I heard awhile ago that he was only 5-8 so it's great that he grew. If he keeps going at this pace, he could pan out to be 5-11 or 6-0.

Shattuck also said Taylor Cammarata was 5'9, 150 two years ago. What is he currently, two years later? 5'6, 160. Don't put much stock into Shattuck's "measurements."

Def top-5. High-level prospects at the top of the Q draft this year. Gap is small amongst top-5.

Go to the QMJHL section and read the "When's the Q Draft" thread lol I assure you you're not the only one talking about him

picked 3rd by SJ? I'm assuming he's going to report?

anyone want to comment on him re development and where he projects re 2015 draft (obviously, premaure discussion).

i assume still top 10? .. is he top 5?

as an aside...how tall is he *really* right now?
