Players to Watch:

Owen Cole (Southern Tier Admirals) – Owen has terrific hockey sense and can make plays with the puck, or force turnovers. He is always aware and able to find scoring lanes.  Cole’s an intriguing player based on the offensive skill set that he possesses and is sure to add excitement to the game.

Will Sutherland (Markham Waxers) - Will is a solid strong skating stay at home defenceman.   He is looked upon to mark the opposition’s key players. Will is reliable in all situations especially defending leads in important times of the game.

Nathan Dunkley (Quinte Red Devils) – Nathan is a very explosive skater who is always a threat each and every time he is on the ice.  Dunkley is always super aggressive when taking puck to the net which is complemented by his vision and hockey skill set.  He is a dynamic player and someone to keep an eye on all season.

Players to Watch:

Carson McCauley (Barrie Colts) – This year the Colts are lead by their captain and power forward Carson McCauley.  Carson is a leader on and off the ice and adds tremendous size and strength up front.  He is very tenacious with the puck and secondly has a great set of hands to match his size and speed.  Look for Carson on the score sheet as he is currently leading the team in scoring and has the ability to do so all year. 

Jacob Brayford (York Simcoe Express) - Jacob is starting to emerge in the ETA West with some very impressive Goals Against percentages. With some impressive starts in the last two weeks, Brayford is emerging as a top AAA goalie.  Playing most of his career in AA,  Jacob is now turning heads at the AAA level.  Being a south paw has its advantages but none compared to his competitive attitude.  He brings his mental game each and every game and quite frankly frustrates his opponents.  Look for many shutouts along the way for Jacob. 

Christian Propp (Halton Hills Hurricanes) – When Christian is in the net for the Hurricanes they are very difficult to score against.  His size, quickness and poise in the net is providing the Hurricanes with solid goaltending this season.  Opposing teams had better get dumped pucks in the correct spots or watch out as Christian possesses excellent stick and passing skills.
