Prospect Ramblings – Junior standouts and AHL assignments

Hayden Soboleski


 Jumping around the Canadian Junior leagues in this Sunday Ramblings…



OHL, QMJHL, and WHL seasons are underway, with players now having up to 13 games played for us to start drooling over their scoring with a reasonable sample size. Lots of notes ahead so let's get to it!



Points-per-game leaders:

  1. Max Jones (ANH) – 5G, 10A in 6GP – Leads this list in the fewest games played and relatively few powerplay points. The future multi-category keeper has also racked up 16PIM.

       2. Taylor Raddysh (TBL) – 9G, 15A in 10GP – The current league points leader is also a plus-17. Lake Erie is just really good at scoring.

       3. Jeremy Bracco (TOR) – 7G, 12A in 8GP – Will continue to be assists-focused unless he starts putting more pucks on net.

       4. Alex Debrincat (CHI) – 10G, 9A in 9GP – Has only 3 points on the man-advantage, imagine his production if this changes…

       5. Adam Mascherin (FLA) – 5G, 16A in 10GP – Expect more goals going forward as Mascherin is shooting at a very high volume. Half of these points have come on the powerplay.


Gabriel Vilardi (2016) is the highest-scoring  A-rated prospect on the NHL Central Scouting list with 5 goals and 6 assists in 7 games after returning to action from a knee injury.



Points-per-game leaders:

  1. Samuel Girard (NSH) – 3G, 14A in 7GP – This is from a DEFENCEMAN and no I've not made a numerical typo. This incredible output comes with less than 2 SOG/game so dont expect the goals to keep coming, and points are currently a bit boosted by his 9 powerplay assists in 7 games which wont be sustained.
  2. Tyler Boland (undrafted) – 11G, 10A in 11GP – Another top producer being boosted by 10 points with the extra man. Rimouskie is on fire and has 4 players if the top 8 in points-per-game.

       3. Filip Chlapik (OTT) – 12G, 7A in 10GP – The top goal-scorer on this list is doing so by shooting nearly 7 SHOTS PER GAME! Has 25 PIM to compliment these crazy totals.

       4. Dylan Montcalm (undrafted) – 5G, 15A in 11GP – Red flag: huge powerplay numbers but lowest plus-minus of those on this list (even).

       5. Martins Dzierkals (
