Alliance Scout Player Rankings – November Edition

A new year leads us to a new format for the Alliance Scout player rankings. In previous years, the site would release a top 25 player list during the Toronto Marlboros tournament and then a final list prior to the OHL Priority Selection.

This year, we are changing things up. Rather than just having two rankings, we will be releasing a new ranking every month. And rather than just doing the top 25, we will be modeling the list after how OHL and NHL Central Scouting does their lists. Doing these lists monthly will allow for a more accurate representation and also can allow for players who have been having strong months to make their way onto the lists.

Those in the “A Prospect” pool are players who I see as the cream of the crop and those who could be hearing their name called in the opening four rounds of the OHL Draft. A player under the “B Prospect” heading I believe could be going in rounds 5-10 while players in the C category could be going in rounds 11-15. Players names are all listed alphabetically and not in any ranking order.

Coming off what can be described as a disappointing year at Minor Midget and a positive year at bantam, the Huron-Perth Lakers are one of the swing teams in the Alliance this season.

The 2018/19 started pretty strong for the Lakers at Minor Midget. The team was flying on all cylinders and racking up the wins. They looked like a legitimate contending team for the first half of the year. The second half was a struggle as the offense aside from Camden Daigle and Cole Melady dried up and their season came down to the final day. It was out of their hands though as an Elgin win over Lambton knocked them out of playdown contention.
