The Erie Otters’ Taylor Raddysh has firmly ensconced himself on the draft boards with his size, grit, and goal-scoring. And this year, he is helping himself out by racking up the helpers – though that is a skill he said he has always had, despite not being able to show it last year as an OHL rookie. Read more»

Mackenzie Blackwood - Barrie Colts

The NHL-drafted goaltending ranks are fairly slim in the Ontario Hockey League, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality – at least with the top three netminders. While there is some talent at the lower end, the goaltending prospects are certainly more promising at the top of the list. Read more»

The Colorado Avalanche missed the playoffs for the second season in a row in Patrick Roy’s third season behind the bench. Just like last year, it was their slow start that hurt them down the stretch as they missed the final wild card spot by a mere few points. There are obvious weaknesses in their NHL lineup but they have several prospects who could play integral roles in the 2016-17 season.
