    Hey, guys, these are a few players eligible for the 2007 draft that caught my eye. I've found some stuff on them, but I was wondering if anyone here had more information (especially if you get to watch them on occasion).

    Michael Repik - LW - Vancouver Giants (WHL) - 5'11 185 lbs - 12/31/1988


    Here's a little scouting report from HF written about him after an U-17 Tournament in 2004:

    Late 88-born smallish player with an incredible hockey sense showed he deserves a stable spot in the U-17 selection. His performance was very mature for his age, he takes advantage of his amazing vision, ability to read play extremely well and his smart head together with soft hands. Repik is a great skater too with quick first step and good stability. While watching this guy hockey seems so easy sport to play, he possesses uncommon skill to be always at the right place at the right time. Precise decision making with the puck is his other ability he knows when to shoot the puck and when to pass, he has very accurate wrist shot.


    Anybody know anything about Tristan Llewellyn (D)? He was ranked #2 (behind Nick Petrecki) in Red Line Junior's Top 60. How about Bryan Cameron (RW/C), who was ranked #14 in the same report? I see he has 44 points in 49 games for the Belleville Bulls of the OHL, but I don't know much else. I have no idea what year the report's from, but I imagine it can't be within the last year because it has James Van Riemsdyk ranked #35.


    A few names from the USHL (aside from the guys who are already getting plenty of publicity) that pop out to me as I scour the Internet...

    Max Pacioretty - F - Sioux City Musketeers - 6'2" 205 lbs - 11/20/1988


    Max Pacioretty is in his rookie year in the USHL playing for Sioux City. Not too much was known about the big the 6’2, 205 pound native of Connecticut when he committed to Michigan earlier this year, but he has made a name for himself after a strong start to the season. He has racked up 14 points in 11 games, and the NHL Central Scouting Bureau lists him as an 'A' Player on their Players to Watch list.

    Billy Powers: “Max is a skating, offensive, physical player. He’s really just a high-end guy in a lot of different ways, so we're really excited what he’s done in that league already and obviously look forward to him coming next season.”


    Calle Ridderwall - F - Tri-City Storm - 5'11" 170 lbs - 5/28/1988


    He won the "fastest skater" competition at the USHL All-Star Game in January.

    Ben Ryan - F - Des Moines Buccanneers - 6' 195 lbs - 10/16/1988

    Has put up 51 points (14 G, 37 A) in 40 games so far and is 3rd on the team in scoring (the 2 ahead of him are 1986 birthdays). I can't find too much more on him, unfortunately.

    Thanks in advance.
