 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!

 

OHL

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.

 

QMJHL

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 (
