April 2019 update of the Top 10 Flint Firebirds Prospects heading into the 2019-2020 season.
Brennan Othmann, the team’s first-round, second overall pick in the recent OhL Priority Selection leads the way. Othmann was TheScout.ca’s second ranked prospect for the draft which made him our top ranked 2003-born player since first-overall pick Shane Wright was born in 2004. The Don Mills Flyers product is as complete of a hockey player as you can be, featuring a superior intellect for the game and exceptional shooting attributes.
After Othmann is Owen Power, who is one of the most coveted OHL eligible players playing outside of the league. A top 10 talent in the 2002 draft class, the Firebirds took him in the second round which is where he fell because of a commitment to the University of Michigan. Power stayed on the path to that commitment and played this past season with the Chicago Steel in the USHL, but Flint will be hoping that their improved environment and impending success can lure him into a Firebirds sweater.
Another draft day gamble, Ty Gallagher (Miami-Ohio and U.S. National Team option) ranks high on the list, but as a Michigan native there is plenty of opportunity for communication.
The top 10 also includes two goaltenders in Christian Linton and Chase Clark, while another goaltending prospect James Gray just missed out.
