Very solid, and great defensively, although not an offensive dynamo, won't wow you with skills, but both of their hockey IQs, off the charts , especially for defensive dmen at that age. I like this kid more and more every time I watch him

D-man Nicolas Meloche seems to be slipping under the radar at this moment from Saint-Eustache. Listed at 6'1 196 lbs at that.

Good point. I'm intrigued by his potential too. Overall, seems like the 97 group is very solid, better than '96, particularly on defence.

The 96's and 97's seem very weak as a whole..

Having been to several Midget AAA games thus far this year and spoken to scouts from several Q teams at said games, I can tell you that the they are very optimistic regarding this year's group, all the more when compared to the 96s.

Well the top end guys are better then last years, but I still think this is a weak year.

Not much talk this year it seems, I miss lalalaprise and scoutman.
Anyone have any early rankings, even if they're just regional?

And has anyone seen this kid named Curtis Scales?
I found him while looking for Sébastien Cormier, who has moved to CIHA.
Scales leads the CIH minor midget squad in scoring and has already gotten a call up to the major midget team, where he's scored three goals in two games.
The thing that made me notice him before even looking at the stats was his obscure hometown: Goose Bay, Labrador.

Plenty of decent 97's on Pei this year playing major midget.

Anyone tell me how guys like Larter, Steele, Arsenault, Morrison etc look compared to the rest of maritimes 97 group.

Who would you guys take 1st if the draft were today ?

For me it would be Beauvillier, seems like a franchise talent.

Def. Jeremy Roy here,perhaps the best '97 born defenceman in Canada right now. Beauvilier would be close behind though (along with N. Noel).

Forgot about Noel..

I love Roy, but it's tough cause the Q is so offensive..

I don't think people should sleep on him.
I get that he wasn't his best during the All Canadians game, but it's one game.

I've seen him a few times with Shattuck (live at the bantam level at Nationals and via webstream at the prep level) and he's a very dangerous player.
You can see why he was compared to MacKinnon; he's so fast and does everything at high speeds.
I think it should be mentioned that his teammate last season, Jordan Greenway, who outscored him and is a good prospect himself for the OHL, only made the U16 team.
Noel made the prep team (which also includes 94's, 95's and 96's), is the only 97 on it, and is producing.
It's rare that players make the prep team at such a young age and it's even more rare that they'll produce as well as Noel has.
Others that have done that same include Crosby, Esposito, and Emerson Etem (although he didn't produce as well as Noel is).

True but Roy is as worthy of being a no. 1 pick as Gormley or Desprès were a few years ago. Besides, it is because defencement of that caliber are so few and far between in the Q that Roy will be the first pick overall IMO.

Depends on who picks first...

I think Sherbrooke would take a forward who will keep the fans in their seats.

That's pretty impressive, how does that league compare to Midget AAA ?

Steele and Hackett have been the best PEI players that I've seen play midget major this year. They would have to improve their skating if they want to make it in the Q. I haven't been impressed with any other PEI '97 yet. Steele and Hackett remind me of Damon McDonald and he wasn't drafted by a Q team but I could be wrong.

A few players from the NB teams that could be drafted are:

Fredericton- Deschenes, Vance, Paul, Tompkins, maybe Daley (sometimes inconsistent), and maybe Astle (he was highly regarded last year at the start of the season but wasn't drafted last year).

Moncton- Jacob, Belec, and maybe Richard (not sure if he's just riding Bradley's cottail or not).

Saint John- Bower and Leblanc

Miramichi- Theriault, Landry (not sure why he hasn't been drafted yet/he's NB's best Midget Major goalie), maybe Castonguay ( not drafted last year and I could see why but it isn't something to discuss on this forum), maybe Savoie (size could be his downfall), and maybe Beaulieu (skill is there but needs to be more aggressive).

A lot of Fredericton and Miramichi guys but they are the youngest teams so it should be expected. This is just my opinion. The Monctonian is coming up in two weeks so we can see which players get picked for the prospect game.

Then again , I think building from the back end out is a good way to go if your an expansion team. I liked that Sherbrooke went out an acquired Carl Neil. The way I see it is Roy would go first in most scenerios , however that's coming from someone who hasn't seem much of either players. I've been very limited this year to see some of the Quebec kids, spending alot of time in NS and on the Island.

Is Carl Neil any good though ?

The SJ model was a great one, taking 3 straight D 1st overall..

I agree with some of your picks though Jacob has not played a game yet and at 5' 6" and 135 bs he better have his A game when he returns from inury, if he picks up where he left off last year he will be good just his size issue may hold him back.

My opinion, without looking at the standings:

1: Jeremy Roy
2: Nathan Noel
3:Luc Deschenes
4:Anthony Beauvillier
5aniel Sprong


Not a top ten, I haven't seen much of anyone else.
