The October 18, 2012 newsletter is now ready. In this edition of the newsletter, we update the Top 200 for 98's, Top 130 for 99's and make some major adjustments after our scouts viewings at the Chilliwack Bantam Touranament, Port Moody Tournament, Red Deer Tournament, Seafair Icebreaker Tournament and Hockey Manitoba Showcase as well as a smaller Melville tournament.. As well, stats have been updated for all players in the 98 and 99 age group with the exception of some PCAHA teams. Updated heights and weights are updated as well for most teams in western Canada and the US. 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 a small, talented player who took his game from a small BC association to one of the main academy's and is now one of the leading scorers on that team.
I speak with one of the most talented players in the '99 age group in western Canada who is already wearing a letter with his team. He has all the offensive tools to be a player to watch moving forward.
We interview one of the hardest working players in the draft and says he will do anything to help his team win and "hates losing". He plays in a smaller association but won't go un-noticed for long.
Lastly, interviewed is the reigning scoring leader of his peewee league last year. So far in Bantam hockey he is starting to adjust and put up points once again.
- The Tournament section is updated as well. It includes all tournaments in all provinces in a new format.
The top 20 team rankings make its first appearance in the newsletter since all leagues are now under way.
