Steven Ellis/The Hockey News A lot can change in two years. The 2018 OHL draft had quite the group. Quinton Byfield was the cream of the crop, while Jamie Drysdale, Cole Perfetti and a host of other top 2020 NHL draft prospects (and potential 2021 No. 1 pick Owen Power) all went early. The draftContinue reading “Scouting Report: Stephen Halliday”
Photo from Aaron Bell/OHL Images This is far from a strong year for defensemen. It wouldn’t be shocking if just 3-4 defenders in the first round, compared to a potential five in the top 10 next year. With so much focus on big-game, skillful forwards, it’s easy to forget just how good Jamie Drysdale isContinue reading “Scouting Report: Jamie Drysdale”

Every time he hit the ice with the Toronto Marlboros, Cuylle was an immediate scoring threat, leading the OHL Cup with 12 points to beat out the likesContinue reading “Scouting Report: Will Cuylle”
Few prospects had as big of a year as Nico Daws. From an OHL backup to goaltender of the year, many teams will be excited about the raw ability Daws brings to the table.
German hockey fans have many reasons to get excited over the past few years. Now, it’s Tim Stützle’s turn to add to the elation.

Get used to saying that name because if your team doesn’t end up picking him, you’ll hate playing against the top 2002-born prospect in the world. Byfield joined the struggling Sudbury Wolves squad two years ago, marking the team’s second firstContinue reading “Scouting Report: Quinton Byfield”
