The January 10, 2013 newsletter is now ready. In this edition of the newsletter, we update the Top 200 for 98's, Top 130 for 99's. As well, stats have been updated for all players in the 98 and 99 age group with the exception of some PCAHA teams. The Top 40 western American players are updated. The Rankings continue to be updated as scouts tournament reports come in and get reflected in the player rankings daily. New this time around, we've "color coded" the rankings to show by province.
We had a chance to speak with a forward who would like to model his game after Jarome Iginla. He is a hard worker and currently leads his British Columbia bantam team in scoring.
I interview a big defenceman who is flying way under the radar due to where he plays but we feel he could be a top 3 round selection and make a team very happy on draft day. He likes to model his game after Drew Doughty.
Interviewed is one of the top 99 born defenceman in western Canada and he is sure to make some major noise next season.
Lastly, I speak with a Manitoba defenceman who just keeps getting better and better and combines a nice blend of size, defensive and offensive ability.
The top 20 team rankings make its Sixth appearance in the newsletter since all leagues are now under way. We also list who their next games are against.
