2017 WHL Draft

 

This was our first season scouting the WHL, a bit of a learning curve so to say. The 2002 class in Western Canada may not have the notoriety of the 03’s or 01’s but there is still a lot of depth to this draft. Led by smaller dynamic forwards like Connor McClennon, Kyle Crnkovic, Ozzy Wiesblatt, Seth Jarvis, and Cole Shepard, this draft class will always bee regarded for the speed and skill it brought offensively. In the next couple of years this draft will prove to be better once more skilled defenders enter the league and more of the goalies begin to settle into the roles they were touted to take. Rankings based out of our 2017 WHL Draft Guide!
