New to this season, we've been running our draft eligible players of the month - as broken down by position. It is more a look at the top performers of the month rather than a 'top prospect' type take on things (otherwise it'd be very close to the same prospect month in, month out).
November saw Taylor Cammarata of the USHL's Waterloo Blackhawks take the forward title, but it was incredibly close with a three player race:
Future Considerations announced today Taylor Cammarata of the USHL’s Waterloo Black Hawks has been named Ferda Hockey FC draft eligible Forward of the Month for November.

The defensive honours went to Ryan Pulock of the Brandon Wheat Kings, who actually missed some games due to injury.

Finally, our goaltender of the month had to go to London Knights stopper Jake Patterson, who had a dynamite November after a bit of a bumpy start.
