Looking forward to watching Scheifele and the Ontario boys tonight!
That is impressive that Adam would be named team captain.......I know it’s just an exhibition game but I think it tells us something about his character and leadership.

I was killing time looking up some info on Scheifele's teammates since I don't follow prospects outside of our own much. For fun I thought I'll do a little bit of a pre-game write up incase anyone else is curious like I was. I apologize in advance for the length. I doubt with all the effort it took that I'd do the same for Lowry's teammates in the two WHL games haha.

OHL Forwards

Puempel(31) - Strome(1) - Meurs(49)
Domi(16) - Catenacci(5) - Leivo(28)
Camara(13) - Scheifele(4) - Griffith(8)
Rychel(48) - Graovac(14) - Wilson(127)
numbers in parenthesis are position in OHL scoring

First Line
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Matt Puempel 93 6.00 190 20 16 5 21 5 10
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: Puempel's best skills are his shot and his goal-scoring ability. The term "quick release" is often overused in scouting circles, but Puempel's is special and he has a lot of finishing ability upside. Puempel rarely has to properly set his feet and distribute his weight to generate a plus shot and he can regularly place his shots with power and accuracy. He has solid hands, but he isn't really a player you want to start the puck movement. Puempel makes good off-puck reads, though, and likes to find soft spots in coverage. He's a decent skater, too.
The Bad: Puempel had a rough season due to a concussion injury and a suspension. His physical effort is questionable and he can be a victim of inconsistent play. Puempel needs to gain a lot of strength as well.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Ryan Strome 93 6.01 192 21 14 23 37 27 27
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: Strome is a very high-end puck possession weapon that threatens regularly with his plus puck skills and hockey sense. Scouts consistently praise his ability to dazzle with his creativity and on-ice vision. Strome is able to quarterback a power play from the half walls and will be the kind of player that the Islanders look to be a starting point of offense and someone to control the play. Strome's offensive skills were never a concern, but this year he really addressed his off-puck play, showing much better defensive play, and more willingness to dig out pucks in defensive-end board battles and to pressure opponents on the forecheck. His acceleration is solid, too.
The Bad: Strome's strength level is still his main issue. While it's better than last year, he's still not at the point where he can play physically with pro-level players. His speed is only average and may be the sole offensive element that keeps him from becoming a true star-level player.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Garrett Meurs 93 6.00 175 19 10 7 17 7 10
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: Meurs was pretty solid this season after a disappointing draft season. He's a gifted player with above-average puck skills and vision who knows how to create offense. However, this season what took him to that next level was an added physical element in terms of driving the net and competing for a lot of loose pucks.
The Bad: Meurs comes off as a player who is a bit of a tweener. While he's skilled, he hasn't shown the consistent ability in the OHL to project as a pro scorer while it's somewhat questionable if he could be a good defensive player in the NHL. He needs to bulk up as well.
Second Line
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Max Domi 95 5.10 194 20 10 16 26 12 26
The Scouting Report:
Quote:
Those who follow Junior Hockey know that Max Domi is a very different player from the reputation that his father Tie forged in the NHL. But make no mistake, Max does play with a similar competitive edge. Domi is a very talented centre who has excellent vision and playmaking skills. He does a great job of controlling the pace when the puck is on his stick and has a good ability to buy time and protect the puck. A capable goal scorer, Domi’s main concerns moving forward are being undersized and lacking an explosive gear that may hold him back a bit when he gets to the next level. A good NHL comparable at this point would be a player like Sam Gagner.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Daniel Catenacci 93 5.10 191 20 14 18 32 12 35
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: Catenacci is a well above-average and bordering on elite skater whose skates can sometimes be mistaken for rockets the way he flies all over the ice and accelerates with ridiculous ease. Catenacci is also a pretty skilled individual who can dangle and make flashy plays. He has a desirable on-ice work ethic and can pester opponents with his energy and speed.
The Bad: Catneacci's physical game is a concern, as despite his work ethic, he's a small, slight player who may not be able to play that style in the NHL and is probably a replacement-level physical guy. I'm also not completely sold that he has the hockey sense to play at a pro scoring level, although this year I heard he was better in that regard.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Josh Leivo 93 6.01 200 21 11 11 22 5 18
Scouting Report:
Quote:
Josh Leivo from September-December vs. Josh Leivo the second half of the season are about as much of polar opposites as you’ll find in any prospect in this draft. After barely establishing himself as an OHL caliber player during the first half of his rookie season, Leivo maintained a PPG pace throughout the second half and went on to become one of the biggest revelations during the OHL playoffs. He’s a big winger who has a good mind for the game and knows where to go on the ice. Has good anticipation and can play the PK as well. Could be a pretty big steal if he can continue to build on the latter part of his rookie season.
Third Line
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Anthony Camara 93 6.01 194 20 14 13 27 8 25
Hockey's Future:
Quote:
At first glance, Camara's no-nonsense, keep-it-simple physical style of play draws obvious comparisons to Bruins' veteran forward Shawn Thornton. While Camara embraces that side of the game, there are indicators that he may be a more gifted offensive forward than he has shown thus far in juniors. While not a pure, instinctive goal scorer, he has legitimate skating and stickhandling skills which suggest he could contribute more on the offensive end of the ice. Camara sees the ice well and is an accurate passer. The fact that he was drafted in the third round would indicate that the Bruins braintrust see him as more of a power forward than just a pure energy player. As one of the tougher players in the OHL, he has shown a willingness to drop the gloves if necessary.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Mark Scheifele 93 6.03 187 19 14 18 32 11 11
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: Mark Scheifele has high-end hockey sense and is an absolutely fantastic playmaker. He makes plays with his hands and vision every single shift and can have the offense flow through him. Scheifele is a good defensive center who is very responsible and aware for a junior-aged player. When he fills out, he'll be a good physical player in terms of protecting the puck and winning board battles.
The Bad: Scheifele's skating showed notable improvement this season, even at times looking pro-average, but he can still look a little sluggish at times. He needs to gain a good amount of strength before he's fully ready for the top level.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Seth Griffith 93 5.11 185 20 14 17 31 7 24
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: After going undrafted in 2011, Griffith got selected after finishing in the top 10 in OHL scoring. He's a very good playmaker who regularly impresses with his vision, as well as his ability to slow the play down and make the right plays. Griffith is an above-average skater and puck-handler who works pretty hard and regularly finds way to create offense.
The Bad: Griffith is a small guy, who despite his efforts, is not really all that effective in the physical game. He's skilled, but lacks really dynamic offensive qualities that could make his projection uncertain. He has a tendency to overpass, too.
Fourth Line
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Kerby Rychel 94 6.01 200 20 12 5 17 -2 11
Scouting Report:
Quote:
Rychel’s game is predicated on grit and tenacity. Projecting as a winger at the NHL level, Rychel is willing to go to the dirty areas and wins puck battles consistently. He goes to the net hard and utilizes his size to create traffic and assert himself in the offensive zone.
Rychel uses his body efficiently when protecting the puck and is a difficult player to neutralize. Rychel finishes checks and consistently uses his body to dish out hits and bring a physical element to the forward corps. Head coach Bob Boughner uses him on both the PP and PK and the third year forward has developed into a reliable contributor in both facets of the game.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Tyler Graovac 93 6.04 203 19 18 8 26 -4 6
Hockey's Future:
Quote:
A lanky centerman with decent skills overall. Needs work on his defensive game.
Scouting Report (Year old):
Quote:
Come June, Tyler Graovac is not a player that is going to be selected on day one, and to be completely honest, he is not a guaranteed NHL Draft selection. His most desirable attribute at this point would be his 6.04 frame that he will have to grow into. Like teammate Ryan Martindale, he needs adapt a more physical component to his game. When you have size in the OHL you are looked upon to provide a physical element. The Brampton, Ontario native is known for having a solid two-way presence on the ice and after an off-season that saw him significantly improve his acceleration and top speed he will only become a more effective hockey player. At the end of the day, his ability to offer offensive support in combination will be taken into serious consideration when looking at his draft stock.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Tom Wilson 94 6.04 210 10 2 9 11 3 33
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: Wilson is as elite a physical player as they come, with a big frame that is quite advanced strength-wise for a player his age. He's a player who loves to lay crushing hits and play the game with an edge. Wilson has decent hands, and while he's not a true offensive creator, he can make some plays. He can be very effective when it comes to protecting the puck in the cycle or getting his sticks in the crease as he's a good net front player.
The Bad: Wilson is a fine skater for his size, but on a neutral scale he could get a little quicker. He also isn't a real instinctual offensive player in terms of creativity or vision although he can make the basic plays fine.
OHL Defence
Corrado(56) - Hamilton(17)
Harrington(237) - Percy(122)
Pelech(42) - Basso(181)

First Pairing
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Frank Corrado 93 6.01 190 21 1 16 17 -2 22
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: Corrado didn't blow people away with his stat line last season, but every scout I talked to was blown away by him. He can skate and think the game at a very high level, showing the ability to be a top-end player in his own end. Corrado has the four-way movements to close gaps efficiently, and make stops in his own end with quick decisions, good positioning, and solid physical play. He sees the ice well and can make a good first pass.
The Bad: Corrado's offensive upside is somewhat questionable, as while he has the hockey sense to produce, he hasn't really done so as of now. He needs to get stronger and improve his conditioning.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Dougie Hamilton 93 6.04 205 21 6 20 26 19 16
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: The CHL Defenseman of the Year took his stock to another level this season, which says a lot about a former top-10 pick. He's an above-average skater and puck-handler who can do both at tremendous levels considering he's 6'4''. Hamilton's always been considered a very smart player, but he was switched to defense recently and looked a little raw last year; this season, the high level of game-processing ability shone through. Hamilton projects to move the puck at a high level, lead the rush with his speed, and make plays by himself—which for a player his size, makes him an elite prospect. He's got a good wingspan and can be a good stick-checker.
The Bad: Hamilton could be a little meaner and use his body more. While much improved, his defensive decisions could still use some fine tuning.
Second Pairing
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Scott Harrington 93 6.01 195 20 1 4 5 6 10
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: A first team OHL all-star this season, Harrington's development took several big jumps forward. He's a high-end thinker who may not be the flashiest or skilled player, but just finds ways every shift to make stops and drives so much value due to his hockey sense. Harrington is always closing his gaps efficiently, knocking puck away from forwards, and doing everything he can to prevent a scoring chance. He's an above-average skater with good four-way mobility.
The Bad: Harrington isn't really a skill player as he can be a bit of a rigid puck-handler and not someone to really create offense. He's a little undersized as well and needs to continue to get stronger.
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Stuart Percy 93 6.01 196 19 5 6 11 3 2
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
The Good: Percy is a high-end thinker who is very advanced for his age and has a great panic threshold. He may not be the most talented puck-handler, but he's a guy who makes a lot of good plays because of his game-processing ability and ability to make plays under pressure. He has above-average vision and that will be his calling card offensively. He also makes good reads defensively and projects to play against good forwards as aside from being a smart defenseman, he also doesn't mind playing a physical game.
The Bad: His skating is simply okay and he can be threatened by faster forwards. Percy isn't really a gifted offensive player and is somewhat rigid with his puck-handling. Concussion/injury issues slowed his development down this year and some scouts called it a "write off year".

Third Pairing
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Adam Pelech 94 6.02 210 20 4 15 19 -4 38
Scouting Report:
Quote:
Flashy is certainly not an adjective that would be used to describe Adam Pelech’s style of play. Effective, however, would be one that hits the nail on the head. After recovering from a pre-season wrist injury, Pelech was a stabilizing force on the Erie blueline despite only being in his 2nd OHL season. Pelech is a very solid shutdown defenseman and does a good job of using his hockey sense, positioning, and long reach to neutralize opposing forwards. Pelech likely will never be much of an offensive contributor, but if he continues to develop moving forward, he’ll have a great shot of being a reliable defensive defenseman at the NHL level..
NameYear HeightWeightGPGA PTS +/-PIM
Alex Basso 93 6.01 184 11 3 4 7 3 13
Hockey Prospectus:
Quote:
Basso is entering his second draft-eligible season after an underwhelming first draft season. He came into the OHL with offensive promise, and after being dealt to Sarnia, he has really shone through this season. Basso is a gifted offensive defenseman who can skate well and who has very desirable puck possession skills. Basso is a pretty creative puckhandler who has a lot of flash to his game. He will get a little risky with moves at the offensive blue line or letting checkers get too close to him on the forecheck, but he has the offensive ability to make people miss even in those tight spaces. Basso has above-average offensive instincts, as he will find outlets down the ice well, and combined with his puck skills, he knows how to make moves under pressure to open up passing lanes. He will get a little too cute here and there with his distributions, but overall, Basso displays impressive vision. Basso skates well and can close gaps effectively, but the defensive side of his game does need some work, especially considering his physical game won't be anything better than replacement level.

One common theme in many of the Hockey prospectus bios posted is that Canadian forwards do not possess high-level spped or skating ability. Will be interesting to see how they match up with Mother Russia's speed demons. Canadian forwad lines may be designed to score some close, dirty goals. Of all 4 lines posted, the Scheifele line looks best suited to do that.

I'm expecting a lot from Scheifele tonight, here's hoping he has an excellent game!

Finally some hockey related stuff to watch tonight... will be flipping between Scheifele/ Yakupov and the HHOF induction ceremony.

Would still rather be watching Jets vs. anyone.

Sarnia could have done a much better job singing the anthem... and where was the TRUE NORTH!?

You can really see how Russia has become so much more 'Canadian' over the past 5 years or so.

Well all I have to say is that Mark's skating coach has done wonders, his skating is night and day different than this summer. He actually looks quick and very agile, really liking what I see in that regards.

That is great, I said on another thread that Lowry is the guy besides Scheifele,Trouba, and possibly Telegin who could possibly make the biggest impact. I am really looking forward to seeing him play.

This is my first time watching Scheifele since last year, his skating has noticeably improved. How i wish i could see what he could do at Jets camp, he looks ready to move up.

Huge props to Scheifele from Kypryos in the 1st intermission. I agree with Nick on his assessment of the 1st period, I thought Scheifele had a very strong 1st.

Well Kypreos raving about Scheifele which is good to hear.

I thought he had a really strong first period:

Created a couple of great chances.

Neutralized the Yakupov line.

Made a lot of really smart plays.

One more summer of putting on a little more weight and he'll be ready for primetime, skating is no longer an issue in the least.
