OMHA Minor Midget AAA Top 5 Rankings

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association has released the ninth edition of the Minor Midget AAA Top 5 Rankings for the 2013-14 regular season.  As the regular season is coming to a close things have gotten tighter at the top of this week’s rankings.  Hamilton, Southern Tier and Whitby all sit within three points of each other and hold down the top three spots.  Recent hot stretches by Clarington and South Central (who have gone 5-0-1 in their last 6 games) have pushed them into the fourth and fifth spots respectively.  It should make for a very exciting final stretch of the season in the OMHA.

Players to Watch

Latrell is a big, strong, power forward that loves to play a physical style of game.  When he steps on the ice other teams take notice as he can beat you in many different ways playing the game hard and honestly.  Harris has a good mix of skill and grit and while he does make his presence felt physically he can also beat you on the score sheet.  A hard accurate shot makes it tough on goaltenders in the SCTA.  22 points and 77pims this season gives you an indication of what he can do.

Smith is a highly skilled player for the Coyotes this season and has the ability to create plays for himself or others on the ice.  His strong skating ability allows him to gain room on the ice to find seams and open areas.  When Greg is on the ice scouts take notice as he makes something happen and can change the course of a game.  Smith has four points in his last three games including two goals on Jan 22nd vs Oshawa.

Zachary is a big power forward that has also played a little bit of defense for the Rangers this season, making him a big part of this team.  He has very good size standing at 6’1” and is strong on pucks.  Ribau uses his size well on cycles down low and also to protect pucks for the opponent.  He has a hard shot that if given time and space can really make you pay.  Zach had two goals and an assist on January 26th vs Burlington.
