Western U16 Championships

Anyone watching these games? If so, who's catching the scouts eye?

Yeah, I'd love to hear some scouting reports.

Alberta is crazy stacked. Tyler Benson hasn't registered a point yet and it hasn't mattered.

Hey guys, you can see the highlights on WHL.ca

The biggest standouts have been Kale Clague, Tyson Jost, Jake Kryski, and David Quenneville.

Benson and Steel have been solid. Anderson very good as well as Fabbro.

He's a beast. Slow start to the tourney but really heating up. Not flashy but has good offensive instincts, scorers shot, and a big frame. Going to be a powerful player. Fun to watch for sure

Hey Zenon, I was wondering if you had any thoughts on how any of the following players have played: Mason Shaw, Dillon Dube, Brett Howden, Dante Hannoun, Josh Mahura.

Thanks for the reports. I'e been reading your twitter feed for news.

Shaw - good scorer offensive instints. All-around solid, good thinker, gets to the right spots

Dillon Dube - been pretty quiet but hes quick and has good hands

Brett Howden - big scorer. Very good movement for his size/age. Good shot, not as physical as he should be but uses his frame well to protect the puck

Dante Hannoun - only saw him in one game, small scorer, but expected a little bit more.

Josh Mahura - solid two-way defenseman. Can move the puck up ice as good as anyone (except Clague and Fabbro) but he handles his dzone well. Physical when he wants to be. Really like his game.

This may turn out to be one of the best dub drafts.

You could not be more correct on this, Team Manitoba and Team Saskatchewan played the two so called power houses and gave them much more then BC and Alberta expected. BC looked lost the entire game against Manitoba.

BC Jost and Kryski have done ok. But they should. Def and Goal-tending should have been alot better. Against Sask and Man was very poor. BC was very lucky to win against Manitoba.

On the other hand Manitoba has played very well front to back.

Alberta has the strongest group by far, I do not count the game yesterday, Alberta played safe, not to get injuries.

Alberta played as good as they have to, it looks like they are waiting to play another level.

Team Saskatchewan Ross and Ramsay looked very good. Saskatchewan,Manitoba play more as a team and less individualist compared to BC.

BC has had 2 Def players out , which makes a difference.

Manitoba should have beaten B.C. yesterday. I'm expecting Alberta to shine today.

Good third period for Steel.

Willms is the only reason B.C. escaped the first.

4-2 Alberta in the 3rd period.

Alberta played to every level and added a level when needed. A
Manitoba- Played Great, I would give the Coaching and Players- A
Saskatchewan- Great Tournament A - all but for last game, nothing left.
BC- C/D very disappointing, No one player did well for the 4 games. Coaching was nothing special.

Goaltender Ryan Kubic, Team Manitoba, St. Andrews. MB; Vancouver Giants (2nd rd)
Defence Kale Clague, Team Alberta, Lloydminster, AB; Brandon Wheat Kings (1st rd)
Defence Dante Fabbro, Team BC, Surrey, BC; Seattle Thunderbirds (1st rd)
Forward Nolan Patrick, Team Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB; Brandon Wheat Kings (1st rd)
Forward Sam Steel, Team Alberta, Sherwood Park, AB; Regina Pats (1st rd)
Forward Tyson Jost, Team BC, Kelowna, BC; Everett Silvertips (1st rd)

Howden,Kaspick ,Quenneville,McGrath - These players could have easily been on this list.

This is a very good group of prospects, especially from Alberta.

Fantastic tournament again.

Kale Clague was my personal favorite. Mentioned it on the broadcast, but having a lot of trouble remembering a 15 YO defenseman that is that Good. Huge stud. So much poise. Strength, IQ, confidence. How he went 6th is a joke

I still believe Manitoba was the second best team out there and agree with your assessments.

This was a generational team for Manitoba, and they were close to beating BC, and not blown out by the generational team Ab had.....

Yeah, Craig Button and Ryan Jankowski both mentioned on the broadcast that they would've liked to see Manitoba get another crack at the BC and AB teams.

They had a lot of depth up front. Their D played alright, couldve used Shioler though

I'd take Manitoba over B.C. this year in a best of 3, 5 or 7.
