Players to Watch:

Rhys Forhan - York Simcoe Express -  Having made transition from defence to forward this season Rhys's versatility has been on display all season.  He has really come into his own the last few weeks and has become a real impact forward.  Forhan is a very powerful and dynamic skater who can create all kids of offensive for his team and possesses a great shot with a great release.  Rhys competes really hard finishing all his checks and really battles in big games.  

Barrett Kirwin – Barrie Colts - Captain and leader of the Colts, Kirwin has really into his own this season. He takes the puck to the net hard creates all kind of opportunities and space for his teammates.  Barrett is a great leader both on and off the ice and really leads the team how you would want a captain too

Ardis Peterson  -  Southern Tier Admirals - The hulking winger has the explosiveness to take most defenseman wide but also shows an ability to mix up his attack by cutting in and driving the net.
Peterson is a true 200-foot player and is capable of playing on the powerplay, penalty kill, and is never one to cheat his defensive responsibilities to initiate something at the other end of the ice.

Players to Watch:

Brady Enman – Barrie Colts - Brady is a very strong skating d-man that has the size and ability to play at the next level. He is a tremendous shut down guy with a big up side on the offense side of the game. Look for Brady to be a large put in the playoffs for Barrie. 

Matthew Struthers – Halton Hurricanes – Matt is a real team leader.  He is a shifty skater who possess quick acceleration and top end speed.  Matt is a natural two way centre who takes pride in both his defensive and offensive skills. 
 
Ali Conor - Brampton 45’s –Ali provides a strong physical presence on the bluenline for the 45’s.  When you combine that with his explosive skating ability it allows him to join the rush and his excellent passing skills add up to making him a major impact player this season.
