In an attempt to get this out to most people before the North American Hockey Classic starts tomorrow, we have decided to release this newsletter a bit early.
RankingsIn this edition of the newsletter, we have now increased the number of 1998 ranked players from 170 to 200 due to various reports we have received back and viewings through the spring thus far. Adjustments have been made to reflect the Challenge Cup tournament, Brandon AAA Challenge Tournament and other various tournaments which have taken place in the past two weeks. Also updated in the rankings are the results from week 1 of the North American Hockey Classic.Also included is the top 120 1999 born prospects. The group will be followed through major tournaments throughout the spring and summer and the list will be work on as we progress through the off season. We have increased this list from 110 to 120 and it has seen some major movement due to our reports received from western Canada through tournament play. Once again, several tournaments have been played which have resulted in addition, deletions and adjustments in the rankings.We also introduce you to the top 30 USA born prospects once again. We will introduce you to them through interview and various tournament reports this summer as well.InterviewsI spoke with a Saskatchewan born defenseman whose father once played in the league. We think he is one of the better skaters in his age group from Saskatchewan and will be taking part in the North American Hockey Classic this coming weekend.I caught up with a British Columbia forward who was over-shadowed last season on one of the top teams in Western Canada. This year, he feels he is ready to be the go-to guy.We meet a 1999 born prospect who is shooting up the rankings very quickly. He will definitely be one to watch over the next couple season and currently we have him very high on the rankings.We also meet a Saskatchewan born forward whose father also played in the WHL and also some minor pro. He is a darkhorse player with huge offensive upside moving forward.Lastly, we meet a lower mainland scoring star who is ready to be one of the next big scoring stars to come out of a very good programTournamentsThe North American Hockey Classic just finished week 1 which featured mostly Manitoba and some Saskatchewan teams in both the 98 and 99 age groups. We give a re-cap of what went on their.
