Gonna agree with you on that one. Only saw them about 3-4 times, but didn't impress me very much. Still assuming they get an invite to Mississauga, no?

In relation to the 2013 OHL draft I feel that many Teams risk the mistake of under rating Michael Davies with the Southern Tier Admirals. Because of health reasons he is now just rounding into shape, check the stats he is quickly catching up to the leaders. He will definitely be a 1st round pick.

I could be wrong but I think Davies had mono earlier this year. I think most teams have him in the 10-25 spot for this upcoming draft. He is a excellent prospect. I like Baird, Walters, Cranwell(potential later round pick). And a few other guys on STA are really getting some attention.

One guy who might be flying a tad under the radar is Noah Carroll #44 Elgin Middlesex. Man does this kid have potential. He is bigger than his 5-11 listed height. He looks closer to 6-1. He is a great skater and to me appears very smart. I think he should go in the second round. If he slips, than that team found a gem.

2013 OHL Mid-season Mock Draft (Jan. 13, 2013)

First Round

1. Ottawa 67’s
*** D-Sean Day (ON/MI) Detroit Compuware U16
Sean Day is the hands-down choice here if he’s in fact granted “Exceptional Status” like expected by the CHL. He’s an Ontario-born kid, who grew up around the world and currently lives in the Detroit-area playing for the Compuware U16 program. He’s a big kid, is physically mature and quite frankly skates like the wind! It’s more often than not the name Paul Coffey comes up when people are trying to describe what he does. Ottawa is in the enviable position here of getting a younger aged prospect to keep in their system for an extra year, and a potential future first overall draft selection in 2016. Regardless of the players available here, Ottawa will go with the best player available and having Day available gives them a top first defensive pairing of Jacob Middleton and Sean Day for the next few years.

2. Peterborough Petes
*F-Nikita Korostelev (ON/RUS) Toronto Jr. Canadiens
The Petes are quite frankly a mess right now. They can’t seem to get anything right these days and maybe picking the most offensively skilled player on the draft boards will help out the Petes enough to get points on the board, so their blueline and keepers can be ahead of the game as they scramble to keep the puck out of their own net. Korostelev has a laser of a wrist shot and is a dynamic scoring option for any team. He may not make his teammates around him that much better, but none-the-less he is a lethal weapon to have on your wing. A player of Korostelev’s offensive pedigree should also prove a big jolt in the arm to a first line, which would now consist of Korostelev, Eric Cornel and Nick Ritchie. All this is dependent on the Russian-born centre, winger being given residential status, as he has been living and playing in the Toronto-area for the last couple years.

3. Erie Otters
D-Zach Werenski (MI) Detroit Little Caesars U18
Erie has a great option here, to have a handful of talented players, from which to choose. Do they find centre Connor McDavid a future linemate? Or help add some all-round skill in their back-end to compliment McDavid’s lethal offensive game. In this case the best option would be picking up Little Caesars U18 blueliner Zach Werenski, who has spent the season playing up an age group and should be an anchor for the Otters future power play attack. Werenski is a strong skater, has good size and a decent frame and should have no problems jumping up to the OHL to be a contributor in his first year in the league. He’s often compared to fellow Detroit area prospect Cam Fowler, who in his short NHL career thus far has already made a good name for himself. An Otters attack with Werenski at the point and McDavid leading the attack up front could give opponents night terrors for the next couple seasons.

4. Windsor Spitfires
Windsor forfeits draft choice due to non-compliance with league rules.
Nobody likes to see this sort of thing, and many wish they laid out all the findings and named players, who had been illegally signed which led the Spitfires to not only lose this high first round choice, but also first round draft choices in 2014 and 2016, but that’s not how things unfolded. That being said, Windsor misses out on a local area kid in Travis Konecny of the Elgin Middlesex Chiefs, who could have brought a familiar Taylor Hall type game to the team. This will sting for the Spitfires and it’s loyal legion of fans.

5. Kingston Frontenacs
F-Travis Konecny (ON) Elgin Middlesex Chiefs
Todd Gill and the Kingston Frontenacs are smiling ear-to-ear because of the scenario with Windsor, which allows Konecny, who many thought may be the first overall pick this year, to fall into their laps at fifth overall. Kingston has a team full of young studs, and a very deep blueline, meaning forward has always been their target and Travis Konecny fits the bill. While he may not be very large in size, he plays much bigger and uses his blazing speed and fearless demeanor to hit everything that moves, while also being an offensive buzz saw around the net. Konecny would fit in well with Sam Bennett and Spencer Watson up front for the Fronts, as long as the team adds some size and physicality later in the draft or through trades to supplement their embarrassment of talent on the roster.

6. Mississauga Steelheads
D-Matt Spencer (ON) Oakville Rangers
The Steelheads already have a good group of young forwards up front, which allowed them to look to their defence to shore things up for the future. Spencer is a big kid, whose a solid skater and already has a pro frame. Many compare his game to Cody Ceci’s however he’s more likely a more complete player on that front, who is quicker and smarter with his decisions. Spencer doesn’t have far to go from Oakville to Mississauga and should possibly serve an apprenticeship under an overager such as Dylan DeMelo or Stuart Percy for a season before taking over as the team’s main blueliner.

7. Saginaw Spirit
F-Dylan Strome (ON) Toronto Marlboros
Saginaw is a very young team, which is poised to turn the corner next season and possibly be a team with which to be reckoned next season. All that’s missing is a little star power in the lineup, which seems to fit Dylan Strome perfectly. The younger brother of Islanders centre Ryan Strome, Dylan is in many ways a similar player and should possibly avoid the short pratfall Ryan suffered after being drafted and forced to waste away on a fourth line before being traded where he got more of a chance to play. The fact the younger Strome worked out with fellow Oakville boys Matt Moulson, John Tavares and Ryan Strome, should mean he’s ready to jump in and be a player immediately. He’ll bring a great offensive ability, while also being responsible in the neutral zone and will make his teammates better to boot. This would be a great fit for Dylan Strome.

8. Brampton Battalion (North Bay Centennials)
F-Brett McKenzie (ON) Oakville Rangers
This is a bit of a wild card for the OHL draft. Is long tenured head coach Stan Butler remaining with the team when they move to North Bay after the season? Will there be any change in management or philosophy? Will the new surroundings and first season mistakes a team is bound to make scare off current or potential or returning players? Either way, all of that will play a factor for the Battalion as they make their pick. While there are a handful of players who would be possibilities here, Brett McKenzie is the safe choice as he is originally from the Ottawa-area and not that far from North Bay in the grand scheme of things. In addition, McKenzie, having played this season with a powerhouse OMHA Oakville Rangers team, showed his skills and inflated stats weren’t just a product of a weaker Ontario East Minor Hockey Association league. He’ll also fit in well with a group of big forwards who can skate and hopefully provide a nice pivot to feed the likes of Brandon Robinson and Blake Clarke in the next few seasons.

9. Sudbury Wolves
F-Mitchell Stephens (ON) Toronto Marlboros
Over-exposure is a factor a lot of times when scouting and Mitchell Stephens could definitely fall into that niche. When scouts have an extra season to watch and critique a player, they often find more and more weaknesses or fall in and out of love with the player. Stephens at the beginning of the season was considered a good bet to be a top-five selection in the OHL draft and still could, but a bit of a slide is likely. He played for the Marlboros as an underager during last year’s OHL Cup, and looked good and this season he has taken on a more dynamic role-playing in all kinds of situations for the Marlboros. While only average in size, Stephens has some good quickness and gets plenty of practice time as a member of the Premier Elite Athlete Collegiate (PEAC) school for elite athletes out of Toronto, which also brought us Connor McDavid. He’s gone from a more offensive player, who showed wowed scouts in bursts last season into a more complete player, where he works hard and takes his role as a two-way forward very seriously. A lot of scouts argue he’s peaked or he doesn’t have as much upside as others in his class, but a lot like Ryan O’Reilly he has all the necessary skills to play any role you need him to for your team to succeed. A player like that would go a long way in Sudbury as they already have a good core from with which to build.

10. Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds
F-Blake Speers (ON) Soo Thunder
Soo sticks with the hometown boy, and nobody can fault them for it when he’s as skilled as Blake Speers. He’s not the biggest forward out there, but he has a ton of skill and is very speedy. While some of the Northern Ontario kids often face a bit of an unfair comparison to their counterparts given the rigors of scouting and less competition, the Greyhounds have the goods in their own back yard, where as other teams do not, and can see him whenever they choose. Speers has an abundance of skill, but it’s his drive and personal discipline, which makes him even more desirable to not just his hometown team, but also the whole OHL. He has been trying to watch, what he eats and follow an organic diet, and playing on a rep team from the far reaches of the province, he has not only gained a lot of big game experience, but a lot of the rigors of being on the road. Greyhounds coach Sheldon Keefe likes matching big time skill with grit on his lines and Speers should fall into that mix nicely.

11. Niagara Ice Dogs
F-Michael Davies (ON) Southern Tier Admirals
Niagara stays home with the big forward Michael Davies from the Southern Tier Admirals. While it was originally thought that his teammates Connor Walters would have been the rallying point of the Admirals team, Davies has also heeded the cry. The thick power forward likes throwing himself around the rink into anything that moves and still has a nice speed level to beat opponents up the middle or to the outside. Davies brings a skilled offensive repertoire to the table and his hard-hitting style should be a hit with the hometown Ice Dogs, especially when he learns to play the power position more skillfully and with a better temperament. There are elements of Todd Bertuzzi’s game in his repertoire, however they are still very different players.

12. Guelph Storm
F-Lawson Crouse (ON) Elgin Middlesex Chiefs
Year after year Guelph has quietly gone out and gotten good kids through the draft and plugged them into a system and has been a competitive team. This year should be no different, except the selection of Lawson Crouse would also bright some, size and aggression along with his immense skill to the lineup. Guelph’s forwards are all moderate to a little undersized, but all work very hard, the one piece they have been missing over this time is a little size on the wings to help out this team when it comes to playoff time. Crouse is exactly that type of player. He’s played on a very good Elgin Middlesex team and where he easily could have been overshadowed by highly ranked teammates Travis Konecny or Cole Mayo, he seems to have taken it as a personal challenge to compete with them and prove he’s not to be overlooked. Where as it would be easy for him to defer to the two stars, he goes hard night in and night out and often has looked like the best player on the ice for the Chiefs. He’ll be a great addition to the Storm.

13. Plymouth Whalers
D-Troy Henley (NJ) Oakville Rangers
Plymouth is super-excited to be able to pick up the big and athletic Troy Henley with the 13th overall selection in the draft. The Cherry Hill, New Jersey-native is a big kid, who has been playing against the best competition available for years and this year made the jump to the Oakville Rangers to continue the trend as he aims to play in the OHL this season. Henley is very athletic and very thick, both of which should be great building blocks for a defenceman. He has some good offensive skills and is physical in his own end too, but the best part about the prospect is you get the feeling he hasn’t even scratched the surface of his potential yet. He has a big shot, but doesn’t always use it, he works hard, but looks like there’s a lot more to give and he could be a huge steal for the Whalers, who would be happy to add him to the likes of Connor Carrick and Gianluca Curcuruto next season. His game reminds me a little of Dustin Byfuglien.

14. Oshawa Generals
D-Cameron Lizotte (ON) Copper Cliff Redmen
Oshawa has a nice team on paper and seems to have the ship turned in the right direction, however their defence still needs help and instead of going with a pure offensive dynamo on the point, they go with the one with the highest level of compete, Cameron Lizotte. The big Sudbury-area resident has made a name for himself with his tough play and hard-nosed mentality on the ice. Every team needs someone to keep the oppositions top forward in check and Lizotte will fill that role nicely in the ‘shwa. The big, tough blueliner does have a solid offensive skill set, but it’s not as developed as that of others like Cole Mayo or as flashy as Garrett McFadden, but he is exactly what the doctor ordered for the Generals. He’ll be the team’s captain before you know it.

15. Belleville Bulls
D-Garrett McFadden (ON) Grey Bruce Highlanders
McFadden is exactly the type of player the Belleville Bulls will love to have as part of their roster. He’s not the biggest kid, but he’s super quick and excels offensively on the point, and on the rush… something, which should come often on the large ice surface at Yardman Arena. He reminds some of Ryan Murphy with his ability to rush with the puck, but playing on a weaker midget team than Murphy did, he may have a better ability to play an all-round game since it was a necessity. McFadden should be able to jump into the Bulls line-up and fill second-pairing duties, which will be vacated by overager Stephen Silas. If not for the youngest Subban brother, Jordan who is still on the team, McFadden could have slid nicely into the team’s first power play unit next season.

16. Kitchener Rangers
F-Jordan Greenway (NY) Shattuck St. Mary Sabres Prep
Greenway is the ultimate boom or bust pick for the OHL draft. He’s a huge forward, who is a good scorer and knows how to protect the puck as he comes ups the ice. He has good on ice vision to find open teammates and uses his huge frame in corners and in front of the net, however is it too good to be true? He’s another New York State kid, out of Potsdam (less than an hour from Ottawa) and could be NCAA or USNTDP bound, but if he were to come to the OHL there’s little doubt he could excel. He’s a little bit of an unknown as he’s playing prep hockey at Shattuck St. Mary’s academy, where Sidney Crosby played, but he’s a guy to watch. Kitchener laughs all the way to the bank, since no other team before them had the guts to make the call on him and he’ll make them pay.

17. Sarnia Sting
F-Denis Yan (RUS/MI) Detroit Belle Tire U18
Yan was born in Alaska, lived in Russia, now lives in the Detroit-area and played for Lambton (near Sarnia) last year, all which are factors, which leave his OHL draft status in question. The Igor Larionov client is a good bet to be ruled eligible and him ending up in Sarnia, where fellow Larionov clients Nail Yakupov and Alex Galchenyuk went seems like a match made in heaven. The young forward is very gifted offensively and has a good frame to his body. He is going to be a professional, there’s little doubt of that, and it’s just a matter whether he’ll be a better pro then OHLer. This could end up being the steal of the draft, especially if the Sting can put some other skilled offensive stars around him.

18. Owen Sound Attack
D-Cole Mayo (ON) Elgin Middlesex Chiefs
Owen Sound should have quite the team coming back next season, with the majority of its players expected back. That being said they will be losing a pair of strong defenders in overagers Keevin Cutting and Nathan Chirlitti, meaning a defenceman would be their preferred course of action. Owen Sound also would have liked offensive dynamo Garrett McFadden of the nearby Grey Bruce Highlanders, but instead had opt for the slightly bigger and more diverse Cole Mayo of the Elgin Middlesex Chiefs. Mayo is a key cog on a very strong Elgin Middlesex team, who has played in big tournaments and big games over the past few years and his mix of offensive dynamics, while running the point and strong positional play make him a great selection to step in as a key defenceman on a strong team next season.

19. Barrie Colts
D-Tyler MacArthur (ON) Barrie Jr. Colts
If there’s anyone who could be considered a bit of a late-bloomer this season in the OHL draft race its Tyler MacArthur. The Barrie native, is a homerun for the local Colts as they not only keep their fans happy, but get a big punishing defender, who brings a touch of offensive skill to the mix as well. MacArthur has always had the size, but he was somewhat overshadowed by other players in the OMHA, but his play this season has been a rallying point for his Jr. Colts teammates and has helped his team to be a tough opponent night in and night out and had them in the OHL’s top ten teams rankings a few times. MacArthur also serves as a good apprentice to Aaron Ekblad, who likely will be leaving the team after being a top 5 pick in the 2014 NHL draft.

20. London Knights
F-Luke Kirwan (NY)
The kids from New York State are usually a little harder to judge, given the level of competition they play and the fact a lot are expected to be players more likely to take the NCAA route. All that being said, Luke Kirwan is a stud of a hockey player and a guy capable of being a top 10 selection this season. He is well beyond physically mature and is a workout warrior and true athlete. He should be a good pick for the Knights a potential future pro. The only concern is some of the players who tend to be too physically mature and have started getting pro bodies through their gym work at earlier ages, have little extra room to develop at later stages, as well as have left their bodies more prone to strains and injuries, which could hamper their development. This is what the Knights do best… pick the player they feel is the best player available.

Correct.

He needed to appeal to Hockey Canada to simply apply for exceptional status, given that the language of the rule suggests that players need to play in the Hockey Canada development system. That appeal was granded, so the application process moves forward. granted

Davies has far better numbers than Martin does. One of Martin's team-mate Tyler Boston is clearly in the middle of a growth spurt as well. He was listed at 5-7 135 at the beginning of the year. Id say he is 5-10 now. Boston has excellent skill and skating as well. Boston leads YSE in overall points for the season. Second is Colella, Martin is 3rd. Martin does have the most goals like u mentioned. Numbers dont tell the whole story. I think Davies is clearly ahead of Martin at this point.

Martins regular season numbers are 28 GP, 14 G, 7 A, 21 Points. Davies is well over a point per game.

Forget about Korostelev's shot, break down the rest of his game over the 200 feet of ice. Its lacking in many ways. His shot misses the net more times than not, he wont have the luxury in the OHL to put up 8 shots a night. How effective is his bomb of a shot if it rarely hits the net? For me the lack of accuracy hurts how I view his shot. His skating needs work. The way he disengages and doesnt work in the defensive zone is also a wart on his game. I think its going to be a challenge to get to him to willingly work in all 3 zones moving forward. In the offensive zone he often does the same thing, he floats waiting for the puck to get to him. Im not as impressed with him now as I was earlier this year when I was not focusing on the details to his game. I think Korostelev going in the 9-15 range makes more sense than #2 overall. In fact if a team selects him there, they have not done there homework at all, unless the Petes have to dive into the depth chart because of reporting issues.

I agree with you. These Mock posts are a lot of fun. With the Petes surging they may move into the 5 hole. They have been scoring a tonne of goals lately so they may lean towards a defensemen. There is still question about his eligibility as well.

Will be interesting to see if Wiernski and Greenaway go National Devlopment. I believe the coach has Yan in the right spot if he gets eligibility because of his minor midget connection last year. Kirwin with London as his dad scouts for them.

I watched Kirwan play recently. He didnt register any points. It was one of his bodychecks that left a lasting memory for me. A neutral zone collision with the opposing teams player was an absoloute car wreck of a hit. The opposing player appeared to blow up on contact, gloves and stick flying. This kid hits like a grown man. He is built like an NHL player already. Im not convinced of a high end offensive player here, although he does possess a heavy, hard shot and has some nice feet for a big man. I see a Tyler Biggs type of guy who brings some of the intangibles to the game, can add incredible high end grit and can skate with a top line to give more skilled guys room to operate. He is going to intimidate guys @ 15 next year.

Will playoff performance have an impact on the Top 20. Watching some GTHL games and OMHA games. Some players have stepped up their game. Some kids are playoff players.

Here's an attempt at this.. Kinda similar to the one posted above but a few changes!! Feedback appreciated!! (Standings as of now things will obviously change)

1. Ottawa- Sean Day
2. Erie- Zach Werenski
3. Petes- Matthew Spencer
4. Windsor- xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Martin does have the most goals like u mentioned. Numbers dont tell the whole story. I think Davies is clearly ahead of Martin at this point.

Martins regular season numbers are 28 GP, 14 G, 7 A, 21 Points. Davies is well over a point per game.
I train boston, great kid we just gotta fill him out abit he has all the tools which is great.

I wasnt saying he wasn't above martin either it just seems like no one really gives him credit for being a pretty good player. I guess i should have been more clear. I see YSE play all the time i love there defensive awareness man its unreal!

Thought Blacker has committed to a US University why would you put him first round?

Ya Martin is one of the guys they rely on to chip in some offense, so they can seal off the backend and just support the puck like crazy to win games. I love how Boston plays a team game. I like his work ethic. For me I like him as much as any player 5-10 and under. He has excellent skating technique and puck skills. Graham Knott dominates without the puck on his stick and is really entertaining player to watch and work. He sacrifices himself alot. I like Semaio compete level. I like alot of there players. YSE is a great team to watch for me.

What do u think of Schlichting in all aspects? I think there are some varied opinions on this player across the board.

That would make sence then. Thank you.

Very few people went out to see him live when he was in Rochester. I was surprised by that

Blacker has committed to western Michigan. Latest is that weirenski Yan and Greenaway have comitted to us development. Korestelev will not be in the o draft, in fact he will play for Russia in the 5 Nations Cup, Canada does not have a team at that age. Konecney will go ahead Strome.
I think Pete's will take a defensemen or they will take stephens at 5 ( if they make playoffs) with konecney, Strome and Mackenzie gone, he will be the next best forward. Because its a deep defensemen draft, forwards will go early.

Rumblings around the rinks, is that Marner is growing in height and impression, and he will not make it to the 2nd round. London will not let him slide to the 2nd round.

Some teams have him going in the top 10.

Werenski is not committed. Only one 97 is commetted and its none of the players you mention.

One player has been deleted from the OHL Central Scouting list, but he may be added later (deadline for eligibility is coming up fast) but its not Yan or Korostelev.

Korostelev is in.
