In our second edition (view our debut edition here) of our “TheScout.ca’s Inside the Scouting Notebook” feature (new name, yes), we take a look at the top talent, emerging prospects and scouts’ personal faves for the upcoming OHL Draft. For the general public, this feature article is geared towards providing more information to our readers and subscribers on prospects that aren’t as well-known.
Rather than regurgitating the same ‘ole high profiled names over and over, TheScout.ca staff was polled and asked the following questions about #OHLDraft prospects within their respective regions:
- Name a player from your region who has got off to a sizzling start to his draft season that you could place into the category of “TOP PERFORMER”.
- Name a player from your region who has continually impressed with each viewing that may not be getting the publicity that he deserves in his draft season who could fit into the “PLAYER TO WATCH” category.
- Lastly, name one player from your region who you have taken a personal liking to and wouldn’t mind attaching your name to as a “PERSONAL FAVOURITE” performer.
The following candid observations and comments are directly from the mouths of our hard-working scouts. Participating in the poll were area scouts Kyle Johnston (GTHL), Chris Cameron (Ottawa/HEO), Jeff Fletcher (ETA), Matt Grainda (USA), Nathan Didone (NOHA), Matt Stewart (SCTA), Andrew Sykes (ALLIANCE) and Brendan Ross (Head Scout/ALLIANCE).
