Ekblad, Reinhart, Fabbri, Ho-Sang, McCann, Draisaitl, Dal Colle, Mckeown, DeLeo, Brayden Point, Ritchie, Pepin, Barbashev, and Koys. Were the first ones to come to mind. That's in no order btw.

Keegan Iverson should be a 1st rounder

I would definitely disagree. He's never really shown me anything to predict him as a 1st rounder and the Winterhawks are one of the top 3 teams I've seen the most of this season.

Interesting list for sure. Nice to see Nylander ranked so high.

For the Swedes, I guess Axel Holmström and Oskar Lindblom will make a case for the first round.

Was wondering if Joe Hicketts could make his stock rise enough to be taken in the 1st round?

"Eighteen months before they’re eligible to hear their names called, International Scouting Services has highlighted the top prospects available for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft that will be on the ice at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in Victoriaville and Drummondville, Que.

Based on its November 2012 rankings, ISS has listed the top five forwards and defenceman and top three goaltenders in its Class of 2014."

To avoid any confusion (I was confused )

In the OP Reid Duke had 0g 7a 7pt in 26 games. Currently he sits at 7g 10a 17pt in 37 games. Almost a point per game during that stretch. He is on fire right now.

Yeah, that Merkley trade didn't look great on paper, but what it did for Duke almost made it seem like they were traded for eachother (if you know what I mean).

Ya that was a terrible trade. I understand the reasoning of trading Merkley, to give Duke an increased role and obviously Duke was ready for it and is actually playing better than Merkley was, but the return for Merkley was pretty bad IMO.

Sure if he grows 4 inches and plays like a 1st rounder.

Seriously though it would be a huge climb to make the top 60 for 14 given his size.

Quennville reminds me of a Joel Otto type player, he's big and strong. He's got to work on his speed a little bit, but not surprising given how big, how young he is. Good prospect. Size and has a scoring touch to him. He's really shown an ability to stand in front of the net and disrupt things for the goalie which is pretty surprising for a 16 year old to be that tough to move

Anyone seen Rhett Gardner play? He is in Moose Jaw playing for the Generals Midget AAA. Made Team West for U17 and has since signed with the University of North Dakota.

Does anyone know where he will be playing Jr. Next year. Must be a good player to have signed with UND out of Midget.

pretty safe to say that Anthony DeAngelo has been on fire the past month plus. This kid has really stepped up and is starting to silence a lot of critics. he still has some issues to work on no doubt, but his offensive game from the point is at another level. I have watched him play 3 games this past month and have come away equally impressed with him. he will get stronger physically and away from the puck, but what this kid offers offensively is a commodity that is in huge demand in the NHL. He is a top 10 pick in my eyes for the 2014 draft as long as he continues to produce this way and shores up some of his decision making.

And now Hawryluk overtakes Point to be the highest 16 year old points scorer in the WHL

Having a hard time seeing any forward being drafted higher than Nylander at this time
