Tyler Toffoli – RW – Ottawa 67’s
Both Toffoli and the 67’s got off to very slow starts, but both have turned it around over the past few weeks. The 67’s have gone from the basement of the OHL Eastern Conference to top half and are 7-3 in their past 10 games. Toffoli recorded only 1 goal and 1 assist in the first 10 games of the 2009-10 season but has been on fire since Nov. 13th with 13 goals and 11 assists.
Caleb Herbert – C – Bloomington Jefferson High School
Herbert had a great start to the high school season and is looking better every game. Strong performances thus far have gotten him more attention from scouts, with his high level of big play and his steady and impressive Upper Midwest Elite season, people are starting to really take notice of this undersized forward.
Max Gaede – RW – Woodbury High School
Gaede is a physical player with solid playmaking skills. Recently committed to Minnesota State – Mankato, has had some solid two-way performances lately and appears to be playing with a high level of confidence. Look for him to make even bigger strides as the season moves forward.
Yasin Cisse – RW – Des Moines Buccaneers
Big winger from Quebec and a Boston University recruit, he was playing lights out and on the rise, with 8 points in his last four games. He reportedly suffered a tear in the tendon on his right ankle and will likely miss the rest of the season, so scouts may not get another chance to see him play before the NHL Draft.
T.J. Tynan – C – Des Moines Buccaneers
Small center who is right near the top of USHL scoring race, is committed to Notre Dame, and having a great start to his junior career. Displays wonderful on-ice vision and playmaking skills, along with a solid wrist shot makes up for lack of size with a ton of skill.
Andrei Kuchin, C – Chicago Steel
Passed over at last year’s NHL Draft, Kuchin arrived in North America to play for Chicago in the USHL and is starting to turn heads. Near the top of the USHL scoring race, has pro experience playing four games last season in the KHL with Chekhov. Kuchin displays high-end skills and might not only be picked in the NHL Draft next June, will also likely be selected in the CHL Import Draft as well.
Jared Knight – C – London Knights
Knight got off to a slow start in his 2nd season with the Knights and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in late November. He has been on a real tear since, though, and the Michigan native has scored in 8 straight games and been a key reason why London is currently riding a five-game winning streak and won 9 of their past 10 games. The Knights will be looking for him to continue his hot streak while other key London players are away at the World Junior Championship.
Ben Marshall – LD – Mahtomedi High School
Off to a slower start than some would like and would have expected. He is a solid player, but needs to start playing more of a bigger game for people to be convinced that he’ll be a draft type player. His high level of skills, are without a doubt, some of the best in Minnesota and he is still among the top defenders in the state. He just needs to add a bit more physical play to his game and show that he is strong enough to play at the highest levels.
John McFarland, C – Sudbury Wolves
Many observers were surprised by McFarland being selected to attend Team Canada selection camp for the World Junior team. While the big center played well last April for Canada at the World under-18 Championships, he had only 1 point in the month of November and only four points in the 13 games before heading to Regina for the selection camp. Much more is expected from this former 1st overall draft pick of the Wolves. McFarland has size, strength and skill, but hockey IQ is questionable at times.
Adam Sedlak – RD – Peterborough Petes
ISS scouts expected much more from this big rearguard from the Czech Republic, who is now in his second season in the OHL. Selected by Peterborough in the 1st round, 13th overall in 2008 CHL Import Draft, Sedlak sees lots of ice time, including time on the power play, but point production is down from 2008-09. Plus/minus rating of -11 is the worst on the Petes.
Chris Collins, C – Chilliwack Bruins
After starting the season with 14 points in his first 13 games, he has only 10 points in the last 18 games.
