The September 21, 2012 newsletter is now ready. In this edition of the newsletter, we update the Top 210 for 98's, Top 120 for 99's and make some adjustments. As well, stats have been updated for ALL leagues that have started - just a few games in. We have also updated the heights/weights of the players where the information has been released. There have also been over 30 transfers of players switching teams, that is updated too. The Top 40 western American players are updated.
In the interview section I had a chance to chat with one of the top 1999 born players who has won MVP awards at various tournaments, was captain of his team last year and models his game after Erik Karlsson.
I interviewed a goalie originally from Quebec but has lived in Alberta for a few years now. He looks up to Marc Andre-Fleury for obvious reasons and is a very positionally sound goalie.
We chat with a player from one of the academies who just loves to take the body and mix it up. He also has some good offensive ability in his arsenal.
Lastly, interviewed is one of the top players available for the 2013 bantam draft. We think he should be a first round talent. He models his game after Jarome Iginla and Erik Lindros (minus the concussions), he says.
