Just hasn't had a good year.

He's definitely got pro size, and has skill, but he hasn't scored in 22 games now and the last couple of times I've seen Windsor play, I didn't even notice him on the ice.

If I extended the list, he's definitely in the top 50, but at this point I just didn't consider him for the top 30. Not consistent enough.

A good second half would change that, because like I said, he's got potential.

If you list Brody Silk and Nicholas Baptiste you definitly should list Dominik Kahun ahead of them. He is better then those two but is a rookie. Despite his size I think his upsite is much higher

Absolutely love that you have Nurse 2nd overall. That kid has massive potential. Reminds of a young Chris Pronger.

good read

are there undrafted kids who you think should be on the radar? Maybe guys like Locke, Pancel, McIvor or Brenden Miller

I don't see his upside being higher than Baptiste's. Baptiste has size, speed, skill, and hands. Still trying to put everything together consistently, but he was a former 6th overall pick in the OHL for a reason.

Silk, I'd agree. But Kahun's downside and "bust" potential is also much higher than those two.

In terms of being an OHL player, Kahun is right on par with those two. But as an NHL prospect, IMO, he's behind those two. Production isn't everything.

what's the scouting report on Bigras? Seems like a smart, 2 way player ala Josh Jorges

There are definitely a few.

McIvor has made strides offensively and remains a defensive stalwart. Not sure he gets drafted though, as he represents the same sort of potential he did last year when he didn't get drafted.

If I had to list five guys, in no particular order, I'd probably go with...

Justin Auger
Zac Leslie
Jake Patterson
Dane Fox
Cameron Brace

As for the other guys you listed. Locke has put together a more consistent season as a goal scorer, but at this point, he's nearly the same player he was when he went through the draft already. Ditto for Nathan Pancel. Miller is intriguing for sure and would definitely be in the next group of five, if I listed them (along with a guy like Matthew Campagna). Increased ice time has done wonders for his development as an OHL player.

Yeah, that's not a terrible comparison.

Defensively, he's a very smart player. Plays in all situations for the Attack and it's a pretty rare occurrence to see him out of position. He's gaining confidence in his physical game. Once he starts getting stronger, that aspect of his game could make gains.

Offensively, he creates off the rush. He definitely has good puck skill. He's not exactly a burner, but he picks good spots to pinch and can make forecheckers miss allowing him to gain access to the zone. I'd like to see him start to take even more chances. His shot isn't very heavy, and he's not a big "shooter," in that sense that he likes to let it rip. I don't see him carrying over much goal scoring ability to the next level. His ability to control the point on the powerplay is also still progressing, particularly as team's take away passing lanes, forcing him to shoot. As his shot develops, so will his ability to run the powerplay.

Think of him as a similar prospect to the likes of Matt Finn and Stuart Percy in recent years. So the Gorges comparison isn't terrible.

Brock,

What are your thoughts on Connor Crisp?

His stats imply that he is improving offensively, is a bit truculent and he has great size. On the surface, I would think his numbers would get him drafted as a 2nd year eligible.

Am I missing something?

Not missing anything at all. He definitely has a chance and would be another name in that top 10 (of draft re-entries).

He's generally the type of guy (at least represents the type of situation) who DOES generate interest in his 2nd/3rd year. Missed most of his draft season with a shoulder injury (save his outstanding goaltending performance). Back now and playing well.

Has size, plays the game hard and has developed into quite the net presence, especially on the powerplay.

I haven't seen Erie this last month, when Connor has been on fire (9 goals, 4 assists in December), which would explain why he wasn't up with some of the other guys I listed. But if he keeps this sort of production up (or even close to it) for the rest of the year, he's up near the top of the list with the likes of Auger (another big man beast).
