Serron Noel has climbed to spot #21 on the latest ISS Top 31 Prospects list, since breaking the list at 31 in December. The Ottawa native has worked his way onto the A list in his sophomore year with the Oshawa Generals after helping Canada win gold at Ivan Hlinka. He’s sitting on 53 points in 62 regular season games, with several multi-point performances under his belt.
Is this the year we see another OHL team break through that proverbial glass ceiling? The Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds certainly hope so. Last year, it was the Erie Otters who won the OHL title and made it to the Memorial Cup final after they went through three years of having some powerful teams that fell just short in the playoffs.
Mason Shaw learned at an early age that hard work pays off, and that lesson has led him to a chance at returning to the ice this year.
The CHL experience couldn’t have gone any better for guys like Greg Gardner and Daniel Broussard. They never reached the NHL, but like many players right now, they were fortunate to play long enough to get their education paid for once they moved on from major junior.
Dominique Ducharme has admitted that he has replayed the gold medal game at the 2017 U20 world junior championship over and over in his head countless times. Unfortunately for Team Canada’s bench boss the outcome is the same.
You can’t discount anyone in the OHL, as the North Bay Battalion are showing us posttrade deadline. When they traded arguably their two best players, Cam Dineen and Brett McKenzie, many figured they weren’t expecting to do much in the playoffs if they even qualified.
It’s been a year to remember in the Western Hockey League. Over the past six weeks, three players and two coaches have etched their names into franchise and league history books with unbeatable contributions either on the ice, between the pipes or behind the bench.
ISS Hockey releases their February Top 31 Rankings for the 2018 NHL Draft, with forward Barrett Hayton climbing up as he has steadily all season to land at 13.
Drake Batherson has finally been able to catch his breath. After landing in Blainville-Boisbriand during the second week of January via a trade with his former team, the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, the newest member of the Armada was able to take the time to collect and express his thoughts following a frantic time in his budding hockey career.
It’s been a long time coming for Ty Ronning. The overage right winger has spent his entire Western Hockey League career with the Vancouver Giants, but it’s been four long years since he’s had a taste of the postseason.
Ty Dellandrea needed only 20 seconds to seal his place in the record books at the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game Thursday night in Guelph. The Flint Firebirds forward scored two goals 20 seconds apart to set the event’s record for fastest two goals scored by one player as part of Team Cherry’s 7-4 win over Team Orr.
Smooth skating London Knights D Evan Bouchard isn’t a flashy player but he gets the job done. Well. The Oakville, Ont. native is sliding into sixth in ISS Hockey’s latest Top 31 Rankings for the 2018 NHL Draft, moving up from his 13th spot in December.
