    Caught Titans vs Rebels on Saturday.

    Thought Lombardi on the Titans was really interesting. Skill and speed are obvious, but he he has an advanced understanding of positioning. His second goal was pretty much a direct result of flanking the rush, getting lost in coverage, then placing himself perfectly for the drop pass from his teammate.

    Judd Katz is another guy who I think is a bit underappreciated. I think the kid legit has no panic threshold. He stepped up so many times to bat down pucks/hold the line. He's a little raw, but super skilled for a Dman. I think he could be really good in a few years.

    OHL Draft Ranking: Top-20 Goaltenders

    Goaltenders eligible for the 2019 OHL Priority Selection have not been discussed in great detail this season, a reality which comes as somewhat of a surprise given their importance to the future success of any given team at the OHL-level. As a result, we've put together a mid-term Goaltender Ranking which highlights the top-20 netminders thus far and lists ten honourable mentions as well. Considering the numerous goaltenders of immense skill competing within their respective leagues this season, you'll want to familiarize yourself with these goaltenders ahead of the 2019 OHL Priority Selection.

    Hi Daneurism, thank you for your comment. Judd Katz is one player who has impressed us of late, and has continued to do so throughout the season. His ability to utilize his size in an efficient yet tactile manner while playing a growing role at both ends of the ice has his draft stock soaring ahead of the 2019 OHL Priority Selection. However, like you said, his game is somewhat raw -- once he refines his craft, he could prove to be a steal for the OHL franchise which selects him in the coming years, a reason why he cracked our latest top-160 ranking at 124th overall.

    Today, we head out East to the HEO to discuss Ranvir Gill of the Ottawa Jr. Senators. A slick, puck moving defenceman with exciting offensive upside, Gill is a smooth skater with excellent agility. He is one of the top defencemen in this year's OHL Draft class at transitioning the puck up ice and generating offence. In his own end, Gill uses his long reach and tremendous positioning in order to force opponents towards the wall. He isn't afraid to join the rush when possible, and patrols the blue line with skill and poise. Just an all-around solid prospect with very intriguing upside and no real holes to his game.

    Hey guys,
    I did not want to make a new thread to ask this, but has team Ontario been named for the upcoming Canada winter games?

    Our latest 2019 OHL Draft Prospect Profile examines the breakout play of Toronto Red Wings defenceman Joshua Orrico. Although somewhat undersized, Orrico is a slick and composed defender who can move the puck with ease and is rarely pressured into committing turnovers. While he'd need to add strength to his frame in the coming years, Orrico's maturity and poise afford him significant value as a prospect eligible for the coming Priority Selection.

    Today's Prospect Profile focuses on one of the GTHL's most productive forwards: Josh Bloom of the Toronto Nationals. An intelligent player and smooth skater, Bloom has an incredible sense of the ice and can burn opponents as both a playmaker and a sniper. He displays impressive versatility and clearly makes the players around him better. Often playing the point on the Nats' powerplay, Bloom demonstrates an impressive ability to move the puck North-South & East-West, while making smart shot choices as well

    It's time to unveil our 2019 OHL Cup Ranking for the month of January.

    In this month's edition, two new teams have cracked the top-10 as a result of consistent and upper-echelon results. Once again, the GTHL leads the way within the top-10, as the league's top five teams have all claimed places within the ranking. Meanwhile, the ETA boasts three representatives who could prove to be fierce competition in the OHL Cup, while the Alliance is represented by two dynamic, high-scoring teams.

    See below for the full ranking, which features in-depth coverage of each team's past month of play.

    Returning to our Prospect Profiles, we take an in-depth look into one of the GTHL's most intimidating defencemen, Logan Mailloux of the Toronto Marlboros. Standing at 6'4", 225lbs, Mailloux imposes his will against opponents on a nightly basis, holding tight gaps and eliminating players along the wall or in open-ice with powerful checks. A former Sun Country Panther, Mailloux has displayed improving offensive upside throughout the year, gaining confidence to jump into the rush and drive the net with authority. Along the blue line, he possesses a booming shot that he can successfully get through traffic to create scoring chances.

    Always concerned with size equating to less mobility. With the new NHL/OHL speed is paramount. Not speaking directly about Logan but do the kids coming up now have the speed they will need to play at the OHL level?
    I see kids who were drafted 3 or 4 years ago that cannot keep up to the increased speed of the game. Skating is become a huge part of the new OHL.

    Somehow this thread is so obsessed with GTHL players... Hardly any players mentioned from any other Mn Mdgt AAA league, and ignoring Northern Ontario hockey as a whole. Chase Stillman and Benjamin Gaudreau are two 2003 AAA players selected to represented Team Ontario at the CWGs. Somehow, no reports on them, or other first to third round players from up north. They always seem to be misrepresented in your rankings, as other sites have some north ontario players ranked high because it's a good batch this year. Jack Matier, Tyler Dunbar, Zacharie Giroux, Chase Stillman, Ben Gaudreau, etc. Team NOHA will end up winning the Gold cup in March, and this group still won't mention any of them..

    I don't mean any disrespect, I'm not trying to be mean, I like being proud of northern Ontario players, as not many players come out of North Ontario. Not nearly as much as the Toronto area, but this year it's such a good year for us, with no recognition. It just sucks to see is all

    So then post reports about them? Clearly the people who are writing the reports are from the GTA so obviously those are the players they see 95% of the time.

    For our Prospect Profiles, we generally follow the order of our personal rankings. As such, Stillman, Giroux, and Kavanagh are some of the prospects we will reach in the coming weeks. We are certainly not intentionally avoiding the NOHA prospects, just haven't reached them on our list yet.

    Today we head across the border to New York to take a closer look into one of the most talented prospects eligible for the 2019 OHL Draft. Jeremy Wilmer of the North Jersey Avalanche leads the T1EHL 16U league with a remarkable 19G & 33A for 52 points in just 21 games, establishing a nearly 20-point lead ahead of the next closest scorer. The Boston University commit displays high-end speed, skill & creativity each night. Showing incredible confidence and poise with the puck, Wilmer plays a game similar to the Calgary Flames' Johnny Gaudreau.

    I don't see too much info regarding The Grey Bruce Highlanders. A few players are looking pretty good. Defenceman Darcy Scott, Goalie Ryan Wheeler and Defenceman Eddie MacLean to mention a few.

    I'm sure if your boys are good enough they'll get noticed, JeffIan particularly in a hockey hotbed like Grey Bruce! There are literally 1000s of players out there, and teams/scouts do their best to evaluate as many as they can. I wish your team and sons the best moving forward.

    Staying South of the border, we head over to Illinois to take an in-depth look at a potential 1st rounder for the 2019 OHL Draft, Colby Saganiuk of the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite. Playing a high-tempo game with significant skill and creativity, Saganiuk has been an offensive catalyst for the Penguins all year long, playing to over a point-per-game pace in the 16U T1EHL. A puck possession machine, Saganiuk protects the puck well and showcases a high ceiling as he continues to grow and mature.

    Finally, we take a trip up North to the GNML's Sudbury Wolves to get a look at Chase Stillman. One of the more intriguing prospects for the 2019 OHL Draft, Stillman is an intelligent, two-way centre with high-end offensive abilities. A Providence College commit, Stillman displays excellent vision and instincts at both ends of the ice. He is able to thrive in the offensive zone by slipping tape-to-tape passes through traffic and through lanes that don't appear visible to many. Further, he possesses a strong shot with a quick release and impressive accuracy, making him a two-way threat.
