What is a good league to develop in before playing in the Q?

I have talked to a couple Q teams and i need to develop for a year before playing for them. I am a 97 american goalie what leagues/teams do you think would fit me best? I dont care where i play just aslong i get my fair share of time in net. I have talked briefly about the MHL with a scout but i dont know much about the league. Any info would be helpful. Thank you

Where do you play now ?

Are you looking for exposure ?

Will you get drafted this year ?

Better Canadian options would be Jr.A (MHL) and AAA. I'm not sure about your eligibility in AAA though. MHL would probably be a decent option as you'd get exposure from Q scouts since it's local. I'm not sure what options you have south of the border but theres always that route and playing in summer tournaments like Connor Garland did.

Have any of the scouts mentioned the CCHL? It's proven to be a great developmental league, producing quite a number of former NHL'rs (Billy Smith, Fred Brathwaite, Steve Yzerman, Larry Robinson, Claude Giroux, Jimmy Howard, Martin St. Louis, and so many more)
As for moving to Major Junior, it would give him exposure to the QMJHL as well as the OHL.

I feel like we should be getting a name out of this, that way we know who to watch for in the future... For all we know this kid could is the next Brodeur, and we'd be able to say that we were part of the reason he made it!

CCHL is arguably the best junior A league. Excellent suggestion by the above poster.

You could check out the Summerside Western Capitals who are hosting the Royal Bank Cup in a couple of weeks and have built a team to win it . Thus next year they will have spots open and the Q team in Ch'Town is 30 minutes away for scouting purposes and the coach of the PEI Rocket last coached the Summerside team . Plus there is a huge Summerside connections in Gerard Gallant assistant coach in Montreal...former coach of the Summerside team , Dave Cameron assistant coach of Ottawa...and past coach of Summerside team .

Summerside guys get noticed...that you will not have to worry about and it is a small town that has a beautiful facility to play in .

Good luck in your endeavours .
