Players to Watch

Matthew Maidens (Southern Tier Admirals) – Matthew consistently finds ways to score for the Admirals. He has the ability to find holes in the defence and make a lot plays with the puck. Maidens has become a fixture on the power play as he can manufacture offence out of innocent looking plays.

Nathan Dunkley (Quinte Red Devils)– Nathan is a dynamic forward who is a real threat whenever he is on the ice. He is a great skater who possesses a powerful stride that allows him to pull away from defenders and really takes the puck to the net hard.

Ian Maclean (Clarington Toros) – Ian is a forward who the puck always seems to follow. He has a great knack for reading and anticipating the play and getting to the correct spot. Ian possesses an above average shot and carries the attribute of making others around him.

Players to Watch

Ian Blacker (Brampton 45’s) –Ian provides a strong physical presence on the blue line for the 45’s and is one of the reason that Brampton has one of the stingiest GAA’s in the league.  On the power play Ian moves up front and plants himself in front of blue paint where he causes havoc for opposition goaltenders.  

Andrew Fromen (Buffalo Regals) – Andrew is an offensively talent for the Regals.  He has a great set of hands and causes fits for opposing defenceman with his excellent outside speed and net drive.   He is one of the reasons why the Regals look like the team to beat this year

Tyler Bernie (North Central Predators) – Tyler is the leader on and off the ice for the Predators. He is a true power forward with his size an exceptional hands and scoring touch. Bernie is usually the key factor when the Predators are successful. Watch for Tyler to be a force as North Central tries to make a drive for the playoffs.
