    According to USHR, '88 born Jonathan Toews will be heading to the University of North Dakota next season. Toews was taken #1 overall by the Tri-City Storm in the 2003 WHL draft and most thought he'd be heading there after graduating from Shattuck-St. Mary's this year. He's one to watch for the '06 NHL draft.

    ... Tri-Cities Americans. Disappointing from a WHL fan's perspective but the college path seemed inevitable when this Winnipeg phenon opted for Shattuck-St. Mary's over Canadian leagues.

    I saw Toews at last year's Mac Midget Tournament in Calgary. He is a very talented player with great size. Lots of upside. Another big catch for U.N.D.

    Toews is going to be a high, high pick. I'd say top 4-6.

    Great catch for UND, seems like a no brainer for Toews. Two hours from home and he'll be joining fellow Winnipeg first rounder Travis Zajac.

    He isn't even the best player on his team this year. Okposo will be a better pro as he can do it all and plays very physical.

    Just a note. Toews seems to be doing okay at the World Under 17 Championships in Lethbridge. He is the tournament's leading scorer.

    1 Jonathan Toews Western 5 6 4 10 2
    2 Ryan McDonough Ontario 5 4 6 10 2
    3 Tyler Swystun Pacific 5 6 3 9 4
    4 Jiri Tlusty Czech Republic 5 5 4 9 4
    5 Kyle Bortis Western 5 4 5 9 0
