Players to Watch:

Anthony Tremonte (Southern Tier Admirals) - Seeing a ton of rubber, Anthony is consistent because of how well he reads the game and gets himself in position. Tremonte has the athletic ability to make the big saves when they're needed.
 
Adam McMaster (Niagara North Stars) – Adam is incredibly elusive and keeps plays alive by avoiding stick checks and making defenders miss. Adam’s not afraid of contact and will go to the net to make plays. When he's got the puck on his stick he's electric.

Mitchell Pellarin (North Central Ontario Predators) - Mitchell has been a big key in the early season success of the predators.  A powerful skater who has a real knack for making plays around the net. Mitchell really is a complete player who is defensively responsible who plays the game with a nice physical edge.

Players to Watch:

Gabriel Vilardi (Kingston Jr. Frontenac’s) – Gabriel is the true definition of a power forward.  He has the skill, size and hockey sense to be a great player at the next level. Vilardi has the ability to take control of a game and be the deciding factor in the outcome of the game. Look at him to continue to lead Kingston in scoring and be a key factor in there wins for the rest of the season. 

Deacon Lawr (Brampton 45’s) – Deacon is one half of the stingiest goalie duo in the SCTA.  He has continued to improve year over year and that is saying something as he was already in the top tier of goalies as a minor bantam.  Brampton is a very good team and with Deacon in net good becomes almost unbeatable.

Liam Stevens (Hamilton Bulldogs) – Liam’s physical presence on the ice and his natural leadership abilities make him a huge asset for the Hamilton Bulldogs.  He plays on both the PP and PK and is trusted by the coaching staff to perform under pressure.
