RankingsWe have expanded the 1997 age group rankings to now a top 225. The reason being is that there are approximetaly that many players drafted in the bantam draft each year. More movement has occured which includes several deletions off all lists and several new additions to the 97 born and 98 born western Canada lists. Had meetings to discuss primarily the top 4 rounds and thus has movement throughout the lists.
I had a chance to speak with a B.C. defenseman who has surged up the rankings this year. He also has ties to a brother player in the WHL.
Interviewed is a defenseman who models his game after Shea Weber and is perhaps one of the better stay at home dmen in the draft.
I interview a goalie who has risen to near the top, if not the top of most goaltender lists in western Canada. He admires Carey Price.
We introduce everyone to a 98 born Manitoban who is making noise both on the scoreboard and with his bone crunching hits.
Lastly, we introduce an American born player from Arizona who now plays in hockey hot bed Minnesota. He is doing anything he can to play in the WHL one day.
