Inside the Scouting Notebook - USA, Alliance, SCTA - Part 1

TheScoutingNotebookMoving towards the stretch drive which, as everyone knows is the most fun part of the hockey season, we’ve returned with an OHL Draft feature series that has been popular with our subscribers - Inside the Scouting Notebook. It is an opportunity for each of our area scouts to weigh in on several players from their regions. We asked them to highlight players in three separate categories (see below) and speak to the type of player they are.

The TOP PERFORMER from your region who you consider to have been the top player in the league to this point of the season.

PLAYER TO WATCH from your region who has continually impressed with each viewing and received consideration to be your top performer in his own right.

PERSONAL FAVOURITE who has grabbed your attention despite not being someone who has received the attention that some of his peers have.

Part 1 features the opinions of our regional scouts from the USA, Alliance and SCTA.

Part 2 will feature the GTHL, ETA, HEO/Ottawa and Northern Ontario regions.

Participating in this first part of our poll were area scouts Matt Grainda (USA), Mitch Avis (ALLIANCE) Matthew Stewart (SCTA), while Andrew Sykes (Director of Scouting) chime in on each region with his views as well.
