Or...of course Askarov. A big winger, Rolofs can absolutely fly out there and he can really shoot the puck too. A well rounded offensive player, Reichel has the potential Nashville makes a heck of a selection here. These could easily be ironed out If he's going to be that "power center," we're going to want to see him increase his pace of play to be the guy leading the charge over the blueline, making those quick decisions to get the puck to his wingers. 23. This is another pick that I feel pretty strongly about. With three first round selections, the Devils can roll the dice on Lundell and continue to build up a ton of center depth moving forward. Finley is simultaneously one of the largest forwards available this year and one of the most physically raw players. and is able to improve his consistency and confidence. An offensive defender out of Northern Ontario, Kavanagh, like Michael Simpson, spent most of last year playing for the Petes' midget team. I see high end skill with the puck and the ability to be creative to facilitate for teammates. I'm operating under the impression that his skating and offensive game take nice steps forward this year. If you recall, I posted some advanced stats in my (relatively) recent Top 25 prospects release (here). He was highly touted as an OHL Draft prospect back in 2019. He is a very talented goal scorer. Sure there is a connection there, but this would actually be a savvy selection by the Jets. About as complete a 16 year old defender that I've seen come through the OHL. The team currently does not have a right shot defender, so that certainly gives him a leg up. The Jackets certainly have trouble with scoring consistently and Perreault could develop into a player who could help them with that. Hopefully he is given a chance to be the QB1 on North Bay's powerplay and I'm curious to see if his game takes that next step. Daws is an intriguing option because he's a lot closer to being an NHL netminder than others in this class because of his age. OHL scoring leaders and demographics breakdown in the 2019-2020 season. I see a high end IQ in all three zones. After that, the waters get a little murkier. Diagnosed with the same kind of bone cancer as Terry Fox, Brady has conquered the diagnosis and is ready to begin his comeback in order to make the OHL. A late bloomer, DeGrazia is a late born '02 who was terrific last year; capturing a Silver medal at the World Junior A Challenge and the NOJHL's rookie of the year award. Much like the rest of his teammates in Windsor, it was an up and down first year for the former 6th overall selection. He also played for the U.S. at last summer's Hlinka/Gretzky Cup and is eligible for the 2020 NHL Draft in October. conversely, you've got players who look great as 16/17 year olds but just Brett Harrison - Center/Left Wing - Oshawa Generals Additionally. 7. The Hunter development model works and should be trusted. Hopefully his struggles in the CCHL are not indicative of an inability to make the jump. His effort away from the puck would breathe fresh air into an organization that can't seem to get over the hump and he is a guy who could probably fit in really well alongside Jack Eichel in the future. But a lot can change in an offseason (especially one as long as this one). Flint will be counting on him to be a potential top 9 player next season. would not shock me at all to see Reichel and Peterka fall inside the top As usual, NHL translatable skills & red flags are the bars here in terms of overall rankings. Big fan of Christopoulos, going back to his MM year with Don Mills. However, scouts do have concerns over his lack of intensity and consistency from shift to shift, in combination with his lack of size. Pakt Koeman zondagavond zijn eerste prijs met FC Barcelona? If the Wings don't shock the world with Askarov at number four, I could see them rolling the dice on a goaltender at 45. But who will it be? only started doing a preseason list a few years ago, but I enjoy it But I think he is going to really rocket up draft lists this year with a strong season. His 30 goals earned him a spot on the prestigious OJHL All Prospect Team. He just may take time. On one hand, there is a good chance that the Bruins swing for the fences with this selection, opting for a high upside player, given that they do not have a first round selection this year. Never mind the pandemic, in any year this is a tough list to make (as mentioned). Ultimately the question will be, how good can he be with the puck? I do think that his offensive game progresses enough for him to become a top 3 defender on the team too. That sort of composure is really attractive to NHL scouts, perhaps more so than the goalie who relies on just his athleticism to keep him in plays. The Rangers truly did hit the jackpot by winning the lottery this year, moving up from 10th to first overall and earning the chance to select Lafreniere. The Flyers seem like a good fit for him. He is one of the most talented offensive defenders available this year. He's just one of those kids who makes the hard saves look easy. When he's at his best, Hayes is a high energy winger who impacts the game in a variety of ways. He's mean. NHL bloodlines. Kan Marc Brys OHL voor het eerst zege bezorgen op bezoek bij ex-club STVV? Marie Greyhounds. Wyatt Johnston - Center - Windsor Spitfires He is ranked 11th because I am Jordan D'Intino - Sault Ste. We have a strong group of forwards that look like candidates for the first round. The Hurricanes are willing to be patient and add him to the team's already Consistency is an issue, but it is for most big junior forwards. Drafted as someone who possessed high end offensive potential, Holmes will look to showcase his ability to carry the puck and jump up in the rush more consistently this year. 9. He's certainly not as polished as some of the other players available. Seeing Evangelista in the first round might surprise some people, but I've certainly heard some rumblings that teams could like him in this range. 8. NHL teams look at how valuable a guy like Mark Stone is to Vegas and Quinn certainly has similar potential (in the sense of being a strong two-way forward). I mean, that should come as no surprise considering Clarke came from a Don Mills MM team that played with more structure than some OHL teams. 30. Like Arcuri, Voit could move up lists quickly if he's producing He is so suffocating in the defensive end because of his skating ability and intensity level. But I don't think Quinn lasts until 14. 26. Dallas has a type and Kleven is coming season. He's very raw (understandably so) and Tampa Bay would need to be patient, but these are the types of picks teams without a first round selection make. Like his brother Riley, I see him developing into a very physical player and a guy who could be a real pain in the ass to play against. Landon McCallum - Center - Sudbury Wolves Skating and ability to shoot/create in motion need work, but he would be a great pick in this range. His release and shot are both high end. At 6'4, he has the size and athleticism you look for. The question is, what kind of upside does he have? A former member of a talented Toronto Marlboros MM team, Forster was a standout in the GOJHL last year with Cambridge. The Marie dual citizen was a standout for Muskegon in the USHL last year and is a very highly touted prospect who could become an instant top four defender for the Firebirds. And now, he's out again after another procedure. Originally a Barrie draft pick, Beck's rights were acquired by Saginaw in the Ryan Suzuki deal. One of the six goalies invited to the virtual U18 Hockey Canada camp this summer after a fantastic year in the GOJHL with Hamilton. selected high at the NHL draft. He looks a lot more appealing in the second. flamebird, Apr 7, 2020... 2 3 4. His speed really would play well with the players LA already has in the fold and his high end puck skill could make him the type of dynamic play creator who can elevate his linemates. Peterson is another guy that I see an NHL team taking higher than independent or internet scouts have him ranked. His skating concerns (even if you believe they are slightly overblown) could certainly scare some teams away who want a center who plays with pace. The player you 27. A late '02, Hayes missed some time with injuries in his second OHL season and as such, wasn't able to make the kind of impact that some may have expected him to. However Chicago could also look at a goaltender at 46. squad. Let me preface this by saying that I don't agree with Rossi falling to 12th. Locked. He has a good chance to developing into a high end checking winger if the offensive game doesn't develop. Ultimately, as a slightly undersized center, I want to see how he responds to being more of a focal point in Owen Sound's attack this season. 28. Ranvir Gill-Shane - Defense - Ottawa 67's Teams that find success in the NHL playoffs still need power and size on the wing in their top 6 and Colangelo excels driving the net and playing below the hash marks. EvenSteven Dec 30, 2020. Pair of four-star 2022 prospects list Ohio State among top schools The Ohio State football team may not have taken the field this weekend, but they did get some good news on the recruiting front. At his best, Pinelli is a driving force in transition because of his skating ability and assertiveness in driving through defenders, rather than around them. The big thing that I'll be looking for this coming season is improvements in his skating, both in his power/start ups and his top gear. He had a terrific year for Georgetown of the OJHL in 2019/20, finishing as one of the highest scoring '03's in the league. year).

A personal favourite of mine dating back to his MM days, I'm not sure we got the best of Pinelli last year, or a true indication of the type of dominating force that he can be. Honorable Mentions The Wings used to really value IQ above anything else, and I think they have gotten away from that a bit in recent years. Seriously, why do you guys care so much about guys not eligible for the NHL draft until 2022? Quinn has the potential to be that sort of impact two-way forward. If draft guides are your thing and you are looking for more information on players outside of the OHL, look no further than our 2020 Draft Guide (.

Some have him with a mid first projection, where others have him in late first/early second. A match made in heaven, the Bulldogs jump at the opportunity to … This is an incredibly hard working player who strives to improve and has the mindset of a pro hockey player. I really don't think it's far fetched to consider him a candidate for the top 75 or so. their names called by NHL clubs. An undersized forward (5'8, 155lbs last year), Kressler is noticeable because he plays so much larger than his size. A Canadian playing prep hockey last year in Connecticut (at the Gunnery), Giampa could certainly help fill out the London forward group that is bound to lose a few players to the pro ranks next year and is considered a forward with a high end ceiling. Plus, you've At 6'3 and with a right handed shot, if an NHL team is convinced that he has top four upside, he could go much higher than this. We've seen how guys like Kaiden Guhle and Braden Schneider have rocketed up draft lists in 2020 and Del Mastro has a chance to be a similar kind of player.

As an early September birthday, he is going to be one of the youngest players in this draft class and as such, I believe that there is a ton of untapped potential here. this summer as I think he would have been a top six player for the U.S. As mentioned, the goaltending crop for this draft looks fantastic from the OHL. They've placed European players there through the Import Draft (like Albin Grewe just this year). Sidelined for a good portion of the year with a blood clot, Barron was once thought to be the best defender in this draft class. Alex Geci - Center - Sarnia Sting The release on his wrist shot is superb and he has the type of shot and aggressiveness that makes him a threat from anywhere on the ice. Adding speed to this San Jose lineup should be a priority and Foudy is one of the draft's best skaters. While the future crease in Peterborough looks pretty crowded (given the recent selections of Liam Sztuska and Mikael Kingo), Simpson figures to be the running mate with Tye Austin this coming season after Hunter Jones moves on to the pro ranks. The skating is high end Timid perimeter players can become physical beasts, etc. Seems like a pretty perfect fit to me. Simpson, like many Peterborough draft selections, stayed local to play midget AAA so that he could also practice with the Petes and they could keep a close eye on his development. I am always a little uneasy ranking goaltenders this high in preseason rankings because their development is so unpredictable. I think Jarvis is someone who really makes sense as that guy and I think he makes a lot of sense as a target for the Sabres. Written by: Mason McRae (@mason_mcrae) Follow us on Twitter! Already showing signs of turning around their rebuild, Lafreniere helps New York massively, giving them another potentially elite offensive player to give their top six further depth. At 6'1 (and likely still growing), Punnett already excelled at times as an intimidating presence in the defensive end as a 16 year old, showing a penchant for the big hit and for competing hard along the wall. A 6'3 right shot defender, Jodoin could battle Import pick Daniil Sobolev to help replace two integral right shot presences on Windsor's blueline (Corcoran and Rafkin) from a year ago. He's a huge kid. I really like his game. Another instance of following my gut. But the Ducks are happy to select him here, giving them a first round haul of Jamie Drysdale and Bourque, two potential impact players. A big winger, Bowman got into limited action with the Storm last year. Ethan Burroughs - Right Wing - Owen Sound Attack He’ll be an instant NHLer once he’s taken in 2022, so I wouldn’t count too much on him honoring his University of Notre Dame. The 2021 OHL Draft is scheduled for April of 2021, and at first glance it is apparent that this year’s class will be not only strong but incredibly deep.. Sep 16, 2020. And that's if everything goes according to plan and the pandemic "cooperates." A couple thousand people read the piece, which was shocking to me. Niemela is a right shot defender who projects as an intelligent puck mover at the NHL level and would be a really good selection by the Panthers here. Montreal could be a good landing spot for him. He hit a major wall in the second half of his rookie season, but that's not uncommon for first year players. ", AC Milan moet twee sterkhouders missen tegen Cagliari door coronabesmettingen, Jeugdproduct Fernando Torres krijgt al promotie bij zijn Atletico, Boze Théo Bongonda bijt van zich af: "Elke eersteklasser heeft een budget om het veld te onderhouden, dit is een gebrek aan respect voor de voetballers". Holtz's "safeness" is what makes him attractive to a Nashville team that could use more players like him. At times last year with the Bulldogs, he looked like a real force out there. Ryan Winterton - Center - Hamilton Bulldogs However, that commitment was made long ago (2017) and the Storm can offer Gratton a spot in their top four this season, in his NHL draft year. Again, I'm not sure that's something we saw a ton of in his first year. Maybe there are too many similarities between he and Caufield, but he's the best player available here. He would certainly be given a look as a possible top 9 winger with the Wolves. We saw his confidence blossom in leading the attack, taking more chances to create. of skill and a high offensive ceiling. There's certainly some talk that they're interested in Jamie Drysdale. But concerns over his defensive commitment and four way mobility could certainly push him deeper into the draft as a "faller." Have to believe that the undersized winger has a real chance of being a top 9 forward for the Sting this year, bringing energy and tenacity to the ice. And that does make sense. Certainly a long shot to include the talented Dunbar on this list, but given the state of the pandemic, one has to wonder what his intentions are. assuming that the issues that he had last year (strength on the puck, While his ranking seems to be a bit all over the place and the lack of a U18's didn't help that, Commesso is the second best goaltender available IMO and the Wings would have seen a lot of him out of Plymouth. He was terrific for Mississauga of the OJHL last year, producing at near a point per game clip. With Nico Daws likely moving on to the pro ranks next year (following his selection in the 2020 NHL Draft), Grimes will be looked to push Owen Bennett for playing time. The talented playmaker was a standout with Hamilton of the GOJHL this year and has a chance to be in the mix with a bevy of other young players for some open bottom six forward positions. His play as an OHL rookie certainly made that seem so too, as even as a fourth liner on a lot of nights, he found a way to make himself noticeable with his energy level and strength driving through the middle of the ice. Not likely. It will definitely be something to watch for in his sophomore season as he gets stronger. He's in the fourth round of some publications. Torgersson certainly fits the bill of the type of player that Dubas and his scouting staff have targeted at the draft in recent years. He's a long term play but he certainly satisfies the organization's need for a top goaltending prospect. Honestly, Bourque is the kind of guy who can slip through the cracks of the NHL scouting community; the type of player who is underappreciated and better than their ranking indicates. However, he also had some amazing performances where he absolutely stole games for the Sting. McTavish is also highly skilled with the puck and has that ability to create his own scoring chances. Obviously, Donoso could stay at Salisbury for another year with the hope of continuing south of the border to hunt down a scholarship. Francesco Pinelli - Center/Left Wing - Kitchener Rangers The perfect complimentary piece to skilled/creative playmakers, the Bruins have become so difficult to play against because they draft and develop hard workers who can provide versatility. What better team than the Ducks, who know how important mobility is on the back-end (see Scott Niedermayer) to team success in today's NHL. I think he shows a lot of composure when holding the offensive blueline and does his best work when he's controlling the point. However, Smilanic possesses a high offensive upside and that intrigues the Sabres enough to roll the dice. I really like how he pushes the pace of play in transition and is already effective at gaining the offensive zone. Like Gaudreau and Lennox, Vrbetic has a very high ceiling. Faber is one of those quietly effective two-way defenders that NHL teams always seem to favor at the draft. Smith's 28 goals last year in the NOJHL were the most of any U17 player and he even scored his first OHL goal with Barrie in limited action. Goure is a quick, goal scoring center who has the potential to develop into an all situations player in the OHL and at the next level. Safe to assume that Erie will be counting on Saganiuk to come in and be an immediate fixture in the Top 6 with powerplay time. Another late born '02, Vrbetic differs from Lennox in that he is still entering only his second OHL season. Depth will be the name of the game come next year’s Priority Selection, as OHL franchises will have a bounty of high-level prospects to choose from as they are placed on the clock. 2022 Mock Draft. While this could certainly be said about every team, New Jersey really needs to focus on selecting the player who they believe possesses the highest upside and I think that's Raymond.
