History

2010-11: Miles Wood skated for Mass North U17 along with his older brother Tyler Wood in the New England Fall Prep League and skated for the Salem Ice Dogs Empire League junior team. In 14 games he scored 4 goals with 5 assists and had 8 penalty minutes. He was scoreless in two playoff games for the Ice Dogs.

2011-12: Woods played 14 junior games for Salem in the Empire League, scoring 8 goals with 1 assist and 28 penalty minutes. Wood was invited to USA Hockey’s Select 17 Development Camp in June.

2012-13: Wood joined his older brother Tyler at Massachusetts’ Nobles and Greenough School. Repeating his sophomore year in his first season in the New England Prep School league, he scored 8 goals with 10 assists and 18 penalty minutes in 15 games before suffering a season-ending foot injury. He also skated in six games for the Cape Cod Whalers U18 team. Wood committed to playing college hockey at Brown in 2014-15. Ranked 138th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings he was select by New Jersey in the fourth round (100th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.

 

Talent Analysis

Wood has grown into a strong power forward (6-2, 195 pounds) and arguably the best player in the prep school league. Skating is his greatest asset, but over the years, he has learned to use those around him when he has the puck. Thus his playmaking and hockey IQ continues to improve.

Future

Wood was set to play at Boston College this fall, but instead, he decided to return to Nobles and Greenough for his senior year.

The New Jersey Devils have eight prospects competing at the junior level this year; three in the WHL, three in the OHL, one in the QMJHL, and one at the high school level. Some of their forwards are big, skilled scorers but have to overcome personal deficiencies. The others are more defensive oriented but have displayed surprising offensive numbers of late.

The junior and college ranks have produced talented prospects of all skill levels that fit the Devils mold. Now their minor league affiliate is reaping the benefits of this youth movement.
