WHL Draft Players to Watch


Photo Source: Prospect.WHL.ca


A list I have done annually for the past three years, my players to watch list going into the season. This list is simply prized of WHL Draft eligible players who I have previous recognition of going into this season. It will be sectioned out by province and the list is not based on rankings. Players in our current Top 10 are not included in this list either. This list was originally 75 players and I have cut it down to around 50.

This years WHL Draft class is one that is quite divers in terms of style of players. While it is only October, it is interesting to see early on how different players are. No scout has gotten to see the full class yet and it is way too early for formulate opinions on the draft class.
