    1. Nathan MacKinnon—Forward—Shattuck 5’11/175 13 13 11 24
    Not much despute here, he is hands down 1st overall, great speed, power, amazing shooter and hands.

    2. Anthony Duclair—Forward—LSL 5’10/149 28 20 25 45
    Great future super star, he is rumored to be going NCAA, great work ethic, does the dirty work, has an amazing shot, amazing skater, remids me of a young Jarome Iginla and he is that talented too.

    3. Jeremy Gregoire—Forward—Magog 5’11/184 33 23 19 42
    Good character, excellent hands, works hard in front, has good shooting ability and good passing.

    4. Maxime Gravel—Defense--Phen 6’00/171 32 10 09 19
    Has excellent shot from the point, great sense with the puck, plays good defense, he is a great future QB in the Q, and is a franchise d-man in the making.

    5. Jonathan Drouin—Forward—LSL 5’09/156 32 18 28 46
    Excellent hands with the puck, and a great playmaker, he creates a lot of offense on the ice, his game is fitted for the QMJHL.

    6. Philippe Desrosiers—Goalie—Ant Gir 5’11/162 09 06 3.20 .888
    The top goalie, very agile, positonally sound, good vision and moves well in the net, he has all the makings teams look for in a top end goalie.

    7. Zach Taylor—Defense—Argos 5’11/182 28 03 06 09
    Strong, has a strong skating stride, good shot from the point, decent passer, excellent defensive play, has the ability to be a good 2nd pairing dman.

    8. Alexandre Belanger—Goalie--Magog 5’11/158 14 06 3.21 .889
    Another great goalie prospect, he moves well, good position, makes hard saves look easy and has reat focus in the net.

    9. Kris Hodge—Forward—Argos 5’11/171 28 07 13 20
    Tough, crashes the net, excellent shooter and hands in close to the net, works hard, does the dirty work, likes to throw his body as well.

    10. Bronson Beaton—Forward—Pictou 5’11/160 32 15 27 42
    Skating needs to improve some, but excellent hands, amazing shooter in tight quarters and in close to the net, and a very good playmaker, if his skating was better he would be a lot higher.

    11. Matt Murphy—Defense—Fredricton 5’11/165 16 03 07 10
    Good passer, skates well, takes the body when he has the chance, controls the play well from the back end, smart and is a future QB for any Q team.

    12. Anthony De Luca—Forward—Vikings 5’07/189 32 20 19 39
    Small but a wrecking ball on the ice, he reminds me of a less talented Nathan Gerbe, small but throws devistating hits, has a big big shot and just keeps shooting on the ice.

    13. Philippe Cadorette—G—Antoine Girouard 5’10/165 10 05 3.03 .899
    Very good gamer, has great 2nd effort attempts to make saves, moves well, is felxible in net and good speed.

    14. Justin Vanier-Guenette—D—Vikings 5’10/169 30 05 20 25
    Great puck rusher, sometimes rushes too much and leaves his man out to dry on defense, excellent passer and shooter, drives the lanes and skates well.

    15. Zachary Fucale—Goalie—Vikings 5’11/151 10 04 3.31 .893
    Raising up the charts and is positional, great attitude in net, has a good glove hand, excellent down low and sees well through traffic.

    16. Jacob Arsenault—Defense—Miramichi 6’03/182 23 04 14 18
    Big and mobile, but he is as soft as a teddy bear, with his size he has to use his body and be physical both he does not do, he has a great shot from the point, excellent passing, skates well with the puck, plays good position defense and controls play as a QB, if he was physical he would be a top 5 pick.

    17. Philippe Venne—Forward—Vikings 5’08/175 31 13 17 30
    Falling in the rankings, at one point would give MacKinnon a run for 1st overall, now he is small, lazy, has amazing hands, and offensive skills.

    18. Michael Lyle—Forward—Cape Trade 5’11/176 28 17 22 39
    This guy could easily be 3rd overall on this list, his talent is beyond most but his heart and determination are very very bad; the kid has sick amazing hands with the puck, he is blessed with a great shot and very good vision and passing ability, he can single handedly take over a game, at this point his skills would earn him on my NHL top 30 list but with his drive and determination I just hate watching it because he is ultra talented liked few players are but he just glides around the ice, not interested at all and the one game he does try your like OMG WOW but those are few and far between.

    was a stud in the making last year, only played 3 games this year and is out for the year...talent wise some were putting him top 3 overall in the draft, but with only playing 3 games I think a team takes a chance on his in the 2nd round.

    One of the more underrated prospects for the draft is Frederick Gauthier, he is 6'03 193, a centre from College Esther-Blondin...he will surely be a 1st rd pick when its all said and done.

    Great work as always.I'm much more familiar with 95's (and all ages) from Ontario, so this is much appreciated.

    The first thing I was surprised about is how small the majority of the players are (no forward taller than 5'11). Do the teams themselves give out team programs consisting of height, weight, DOB etc.? The majority of AAA teams in Ontario do this, so I was just wondering if that's how you got the heights.

    Second thing that I noticed was the large number of goalies you have slotted as first round talents. This is pretty well the opposite of the OHL, as they've only had two goalies in the past three years.

    Lastly, I'll be attending the Canada Games in a month or so and outside of MacKinnon for Team Atlantic, who else should I be keeping an eye for Team Atlantic and Team Quebec?

    RDS runs a good section on Midget AAA...it has height and weight...also the QMJHL Central Scouting releases rankings to all 18 teams in December that have heights and weights, they do them themselves like NHL CSB does...

    Well Canada games doesnt have a "Team Atlantic"...he will be on team NS...going by Scoutman1's list...Taylor, Lyle, MacKinnon and Beaton are on Team NS, Murphy and Arsenault on Team NB and Hodge is on Team NL...all the Quebec kids are on Team Quebec.

    Thanks for the quick responses fellas. Had a brain fart for a second there with Team Atlantic, was thinking of the U-17's that just passed.

    I'm going to school in Halifax so I'll definitely attend the U16's and see how the rest of 95s in Canada compare to the ones in Ontario that I've already seen.

    It would be great if you could let us know who looks good there. Also if you get to watch team Alberta play if you could report on Keegan Kanzig he is from mine and Jay Onrait's small hometown. He is a 6'5" and 200lbs dmen that was drafted 7th overall in the last WHL draft. If it is not too much of a problem, thanks.

    I'll definitely be giving my opinion on players throughout the week, as will a few other posters I'm sure. As for Kanzig, I'll make sure I have a look for him when I watch Alberta play, he's got incredible size (gotta love that) it seems for a 95 which is a great start. I'm preparing a list of kids to watch that I'll try to have an eye for come mid-feburary and I'll throw him on it.

    To me, De Luca should be higher than the 12th pick. I've seen him play a few times and he is really impressive. He's dominating with the Vikings. Fucale and Vanier Guénette are also playing very well this year.

    Gravel and Gauthier from the College Esther-Blondin are really to watch too. Gauthier could easily go in the first round.

    Just found it here. Go down halfway through the schedule and look for 'Week One Hockey Male'.

    It's too bad they have to have half the games in Dartmouth, I probably won't be able to make the commute. The pools are pretty suspect as well, IMO.

    Great thanks!

    Regarding the pools. Pool C with all the lessor teams play and then I beleive the top 2 teams from that pool move on to regular play (Something like that)

    NS is in a rough pool though.
