What a draft for the OHL. McCann seems a little low would be my only complaint, good list.

Nice to see Chase Deleo get some credit, have him at 16 myself but was always hesitant to move him up. One reason is that I haven't caught a game for a while. Smaller gritty forward with a ton of skill. Him, Erne and Liam Stewart were awesome with the LA Selects a while back. He's been great this year without Petan, who's been with Rattie. Fabbri too I think will rise.

Ho-Sang at 8? Has he really fallen that much?

Good List

Not sure i'd have De Leo quite so high. He's small, plays on a stacked team and has an extra year on most of these guys. I'd have him 20-30.

He's ranked 8th on a list measuring every player in the world within that age bracket. A list that should be treated with caution and where one should avoid "Well so and so should be much higher" because the fluctuations are so volative due to their age.

He's an elite player within his age bracket who has years of development to go. No need for dramatics.

There's supposed to be a couple good Latvians for this draft, no? Are they overhyped or you just haven't had a chance to scout them yet?

There is no Russian based talent listed either. I find it pretty difficult to believe 2 years out, that no Russian player isn't percieved highly.

Next year he'll definitely have to prove himself more with an expected bigger role.

The WHL guys I'm most interested to track for the draft from this list are Haydn Fleury, Reid Duke and Jayce Hawryluk.

Russian based. Both Barbashev and Goldobin play in the CHL.

I can't comment on why no Russian based players are on the list, whether the list producers have seen much of that region for this age class, and whether the omission of any players from that area is "justified" (I imagine very very few people can have a good overall assessment this far out). Just odd to see.

As any scouting professional will tell you, when scouting European & Russian players it is wise to always keep in mind two key factors:

1) Many of the best Russian and European players continue to flock to play in the CHL as true draft eligible rookies and just because the list above has an "OHL" or "WHL" next to his name, that does not necessarily mean he is from Canada (see two Russians in the top 30, and a number of Euros).

2) Scouting of Euro and Russian leagues increases ten-fold the year before the draft, not two.

15. Jake Virtanen – RW – 11/6/95 WHL – 22 GP, 5 G, 1 A, 6 PTS, 24 PIM, +3
Man he is not producing at all, a year ago he was contending for #1 with Ekblad and Reinhart. That is quite the fall

I'd go so far as to have Draisaitl top 3 behind Ekblad and Reinhart. I'm so high on this kid.

Glad to see Brycen Martin make the 1st round on this list. I think a case for him already being the best puck mover on the Broncos could be made. Such a good skater and very high hockey sense.

I think talking in terms of tiers and actual analysis is far more useful than rankings when assessing prospects, especially this far out.

I am well aware that some Russians are trying the CHL. I said no Russian based player is ranked. That is all.

The second point was something i inferred, but was not entirely sure on what and how many observations you have of that region.

He skates/moves around the ice a lot like Malkin, he's even got that same sort of "hunched" skating style that Malkin does, but his shot is not nearly as good. He's much more a playmaker and relies on his vision and elite hockey IQ to contribute offensively.

Nice list! Keegan Iverson is a forward though.

De leo is an excellent forward for his size.

Agree with Renegade; I saw a lot of potential in Fleury when the Rebels were in town; look forward to see how he develops over the next year and a half.

From a Brandon perspective, it's only a matter of time until Hawryluk moves up from the "next 20" into 1st rounder discussion. He's a combination of Calverts speed and Schenn's grit, and he's already the 3rd most potent offensive force on this team, after Pulock and Bertaggia. He's a treat to watch, a kid who can skate, hit and score. He's the future for Brandon (along with Jesse Gabrielle). Brandon received the draft pick for him in the Schenn trade from saskatoon.
