WHL Draft Players to Watch


A list has done annually for the past four years, DraftGeek’s players to watch list going into the season. This list consists of players that our scouts have previous recognition of going into the season. We think of this list as an identifier for this year’s class, to give a rough expectation on who some of the big name players might be and who might rise up the ranks as the season progresses. This list was cut down heavily, this is a deep draft class loaded with talent in every position. This list does not include our current Top 10 List which can be found here: https://www.draftgeek.ca/whl-draft-2020/
