Players to Watch:
Isaac Emon (North Central Predators) – Isaac is an extremely smooth skater and has really become a dominant force in the age group. Emon is a player who plays in all three zones and always seems to come up with big plays. His strong play is a major reason the Predators are off to a great start.

Hunter Holmes (Niagara Falls Rivermen) – His team did not crack the top 5 in the rankings but if he continues playing the way he is, it will be a matter of time. Holmes is a very intelligent forward, he sees the ice extremely well and has skill that is second to none.
  
Ian Vucko (York Simcoe Express) – Ian, the captain of his YSE team has undoubtedly established himself as a player to keep an eye on this year. He is a great skater, has tremendous vision and competes hard in all areas of the game. Vucko is off to a great start and with that so his is team.

Players to Watch:
Joseph Franzin (Whitby Wildcats) – Joseph is a big strong d-man with tons of upside. He is fantastic skater and tremendous puck skills. Franzin plays with an edge and he is able to raise him game above the others and is the leader both on and off the ice. 

Evan Bouchard (Oakville Rangers) – Evan is a physically gifted athlete who leads the Rangers team from the back end. Bouchard is offensively gifted and possesses and extremely heavy shot. He has the ability to single handedly take over the game with his shut down defence or leading the rush out of his end. 
  
Brady Gilmour (Quinte Red Devils) – Brady is a smart two way centre who has blazing speed, high skill and is extremely poised when on the ice. Gilmour has all the tools to play at the next level and as one of the top players from last season, we look for him to continue that success in his Bantam year.
