The October 5, 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 in Saskatchewan and Alberta. 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 one of, if not the top American player for the WHL Bantam Draft who has moved around a lot but has skill that would make him first round WHL Bantam Selection if he opts for that route.
I also speak with a big BC Defenceman who has taken his game to one of the academies this fall. His size and ability to see the ice should make him a high pick for the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft
Interviewed is one of the top up and coming defenseman in the '99 age group. He was the captain of a championship Peewee program last year and feels he will get better and better as the season progresses in 2012-2013.
Lastly, interviewed is a power forward type player who flies under the radar on one of the top bantam programs in western Canada.
- The Tournament section is updated as well. This coming Thanksgiving weekend, there are several tournaments to follow. Be sure to check the website for future updates as the weekend progresses.
