Jääskä wore an A for HIFK U16 team as an underager. Nice skill level and hockey sense. Able to create a lot of offense. Also is a decent skater.

Felixson played with HIFK U16 as well as with year younger players. He is 6´5 tall, but is actually a fairly mobile defenseman. His confidence with the puck seemed to improve as the season went on. I actually saw him rushing the puck up ice in a few occasions. Good hard shot, although I didn´t see him using it much.

Kilponen played for Ilves U16 and put up decent totals as an underager. Skilled forward who can skate and make some good moves. Really would have liked to see him playing more.

All were selected to Finland U16 National Team candidates.
How about kids like (check spelling on all names) Aapeli Raasonen, Jaarko Aalto, Oula (forget last name), Otto Sompi??

The only kids at this age group that I have seen are (in no particular order). Not sure about high NHL draft potential here, but this upcoming year is when this age group will start to shine around here.

Chad Krys: Defenseman, CT Oilers
Nick Sorgi: Goalie, Salisbury (fall of 13')
Patrick Harper: (CT Oilers) Small forward, with a crazy set of hands and the skating to boot. Just has to grow up past 5'4.

Yep. Thanks.

How do they compare to other top 98's in Finland?

2 most talented finns in this draft class are huge. Jesse Puljujärvi is 6'2 and 181lbs at age of 15 and Patrik Laine is 6'2 and 187 lbs at the same age. Puljujärvi is projected to be 6'5 according to finnish national team magazine. Puljujärvi is a ducks fan.

A 'soft' Top five from Ontario right now based on my in person viewings...

Mike McLeod
Brandon Saigeon
Victor Mete
Nick Sicoly
Adam Mascherin

From the US, Logan Brown has the potential to be one of the best 98's in the states, still raw but the tools are high end.

WOW! Thanks for sharing.

Is Verba considered to be head-and-shoulders above the likes of Rubstov, Naumenko, Shabanov, Poluektov? The aforementioned 4 were part of a Moscow Selects team that was in Toronto last December, and they were better than any of Ontario's big 98's.

These players will be in their 1st year of Midget this coming season. I would know because 2016 is my draft year. (Not saying I'll get drafted or have a chance too btw!)

Yeah, I think we're all aware of that. Good luck to you. Who do you play for?

Aalto, Somppi and Kuure played as a line for Jokerit in the Finnish U16 league. All three are pretty good junior players, but at the moment defenseman Olli Juolevi seems like the closest thing to a NHL prospect from their team. Räsänen has a good frame and plays both ways, but his teammates Patrik Laine and Otto Mäkinen seem to have more offensive upside and creativity.

I have a limited viewing on some of these players and there are possibly few good ones missing altogether, so take the following list with a grain of salt. I added Ruokonen's name to the back-end of the list solely based on credentials, I don't have a recollection of seeing him play.

Top-10 Finns for the 2016 NHL Draft:
1. F - Jesse Puljujärvi (Kärpät)
2. F - Patrik Laine (Tappara)
3. D - Olli Juolevi (Jokerit)
4. F - Janne Kuokkanen (Kärpät)
5. F - Otto Mäkinen (Tappara)
6. D - Markus Niemeläinen (Tappara)
7. F - Markus Nurmi (TPS)
8. D - Tarmo Reunanen (TPS)
9. F - Artturi Toivola (HPK)
10. GK - Ville Ruokonen (SaiPa)

That "highlight" video is awful. That kid is nothing more than a selfish cherry picker. If one of my kids bailed on his own zone like that, he'd sit until he learned better.

Respect your opinon scoutman, but Jaeger White is no where near a first round talent at this point. A guy who could be is his teammate Dante Fabbro.

Have you had the chance to see Rubstov, Naumenko, Shabanov, Poluektov? They looked better than McLleod to me. Granted, I only saw them 4 times, but they were incredibly impressive in man-handling McLeod's Marlies. I'm guessing we'll hear about them in on these mock lists in the not too distant future.

I have gauthier in my 2nd round, I want to see him put his game together before I put him up high....he has a big shot, great physical game, good speed, he just has to start realizing his talent. I moved him to 30th though, he should be up there based on talent right now and raw ability, I also took Ryan Lindgren off the list because he is a late bday.

30. David Quenneville--D--SSAC 5'10/150 20 19 19 38
Interesting rankings for these guys... I would have Clague top 5.

Why Quenneville so low?

until he gets to 6'00 for a defender im going to keep him a bit low...as for Clague who would I really move to move him up.....Benson and Krys are both amazing talents, Mike McLeod is probably going 1st in the OHL draft next year and is an amazing player, Sokolov to me is a great amazing prospect who IMO is one of the best players in the draft, Sean Day is certainly ranked ahead of Clague and Sam Steel is pretty amazing too.

At only 5’3”, Sokolov will need to add some size by the 2016 NHL Draft but he is currently the best 1998 born prospect from Russia.
He is much bigger now. 5’11” or even 6’0”.
