The team at TheScout.ca is extremely proud to announce that our initial 2015 OHL Draft rankings are now online.
While our reputation has been built on our OHL Draft work, this past year, the team at TheScout.ca has put in some significant time in Bantam rinks, learning more and more about the 1999 age group. From regular season and playoff games, showcases and tournaments, the team has worked hard to get an early read on the best that the age group has to offer. While its early, the following is a list of our top 40 skaters heading into the minor midget season. We have also included 160 names that caught our eye, and included them in an unrated 'honourable mention' section of the list.
At this point the variance from top to bottom is fairly slim, as there doesn't appear to be any Jakob Chychrun's or Connor McDavid's in the group, we feel that this is a fairly accurate look at where the age group is at this time. Expect our first in season release to come in mid December or early January.
