    When I saw Reid Duke play I barely noticed him out there.

    For the Royals, Joe Hicketts, Jack Walker and Brandon Fushimi.

    Second year guys that might get drafted are Vollrath and Carroll

    I really like him. However, that can be his issue from time to time, as well as his injuries.

    Irving has had a good year. Mayo might get picked later on.

    Paulic (MJ) will almost certainly be taken.

    PA: Leo Draisaitl, Reid Gardiner, Tomas Andrlik. Draisaitl should be top 5, Gardiner has an outside chance at being a first round, Andrlik should go in the 4th-6th.

    Yeah I would've said Leo and Gardiner for sure but I have only seen PA play once so far this year

    For the Silvertips:

    Tyler Sandhu
    Ivan Nikolishin
    Dawson Leedahl
    Austin Lotz

    Josh Winquist will probably get at least an AHL tryout contract if not an NHL contract.

    What about Low? Been playing great defensively and been playing great in position lately.

    He had a great preseason, but hasn't had nearly as much impact offensively. He was a good energy guy last year, but he has looked a lot better this year. Idk if he's worthy of any pro interest, but I think he'll be back next year as an overager.

    With lots of teams focusing on Corsi recently I could see him picking up an AHL tryout. He's a great faceoff guy.

    Nikita Scherbak has to be the surprise pick of the WHL this year.

    Conner Bleackley
    Hadyn Fleury

    Also watch for Aaron Irving off the Oil Kings to surprise coming up in his Draft Year.

    Future Considerations have Conner and Hadyn in their top 30 which sounds right, they don't have Aaron in their top 100 so I think you're right he will surprise come Draft time.

    1. Riley Stadel
    2. Tyson Baillie
    3. Rourke Chartier/Justin Kirkland

    Stadel has shocked me with how far he's come this year, rocket shot, always has skated well and dropping the gloves now. Earning pretty big minutes on a stacked D with many players who are older than him and already drafted. Still undersized so I think he'll be a mid rounder but he's got big upside as a puck mover. If he doesn't fall off it wouldn't surprise me to see him be one of the real risers in the draft this year.

    Baillie is a very good player offensively, hasn't taken a huge step forward but surely will be drafted, feisty, chippy player with a good scoring touch - betting 4th-6th round somewhere.

    Chartier has a great skill set but doesn't see much ice with the Rockets so loaded on talent and is a bit small, Kirkland is a string bean with a decent scoring touch, could really turn into a big player in the league if he fills out. Both late rounders if they get drafted at all.

    Thing with the Rockets is, I think they'll get a few rounds of post season exposure which usually sends player's draft stocks up, maybe Chartier, Kirkland or even the young swiss kid Schmidli get drafted if they win something.

    I'd say Baillie gets picked 2nd early 3rd, Stadel later maybe 4th-5th, same with Chariter and Kirkland. Kirkland's surprised me a lot.

    Blazers

    As a blazers fan, not really much, but if i had to say 3 players it'd be
    1. Edson Harlacher
    2. Colin Shirley
    3. Ryan Rehill

    This year is not a good year for us at all, we have lost 12 straight games now
    and it's obviously a rebuild year since we got rid of Bozon , so hopefully the future is bright for us ,

    Deashaneau ( I am shocked no one drafted him last year) and Jon Martin.

    There is also this Sam Reinhart kid that may go in the draft too:sarcasm:

    Ty Stanton
    Steven Owre
    Blake Penner


    Stanton is a second year draft eligible player, but he has a lot of tools that were just very raw last season in his first year. Size, mobility, mean streak, offensive capability. He could be a late round pick. He was ranked one spot lower than the drafted Tyler Lewington last year. Lewington made NHL scouting combine heads turn with his strength, but stanton has more potential. His brother is in the NHL.

    Owre and Penner are both smaller forwards. Owre hasn't done enough to get drafted, and penner has been injured for parts of last season and this year, but if he could put on a strong 2nd half he might be a candidate for a very late round flyer.

    The Tigers have some other OK 2nd year eligible players but they are either to small or haven't done enough to really warrant a 2nd look through the draft, but if they improve enough they could be free agent invites by 20. You could throw Trevor Cox as an example of small. A PPG player but only 5'8 157 lbs he's gonna have to blow the league apart to earn a pick.

    Older guys like Baddock and Eller may be possibilities.

    Lane Bauer is draft eligible but I dont think he gets a sniff.

    Philp will get shafted in the draft just like Deshaneau did. Valiev is lazy. It is frustrating watching games in Cranbrook.:(
