111 players from the Canadian Hockey League have been listed among NHL Central Scouting’s October ‘Players to Watch’ list for the 2020 NHL Draft which takes place June 26-27 in Montreal.

The 111 players includes 44 from the Western Hockey League, 41 from the Ontario Hockey League, and 26 from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Sixteen skaters received an ‘A rating’ which indicates a first-round candidate.

Each league had ‘A’ ranked representatives, with the OHL featuring eight and four each from the WHL and QMJHL.

The OHL leads the way with ‘A’ ranked talent in forwards Quinton Byfield (Sudbury Wolves), William Cuylle (Windsor Spitfires), Jean-Luc Foudy (Windsor Spitfires), Cole Perfetti (Saginaw Spirit), Jacob Perreault (Sarnia Sting), Marco Rossi (Ottawa 67’s), and Antonio Stranges (London Knights), plus defenceman Jamie Drysdale (Erie Otters).

In the WHL, ‘A’ level talent includes forward Justin Sourdif (Vancouver Giants) and defencemen Kaiden Guhle (Prince Albert Raiders), Daemon Hunt (Moose Jaw Warriors), and Braden Schneider (Brandon Wheat Kings).

The QMJHL rounds out the list with ‘A’ level talent including forwards Alexis Lafreniere (Rimouski Oceanic) and Hendrix Lapierre (Chicoutimi Sagueneens) plus defencemen Justin Barron (Halifax Mooseheads) and Jeremie Poirier (Saint John Sea Dogs).

The remainder of the list counts 27 players who received a ‘B’ rating – indicating projected second- or third-round candidates – counting 25 skaters and two goaltenders. Furthermore, 66 players counting 59 skaters and seven goaltenders received a ‘C’ rating, which indicates fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-round candidates.

Five CHL clubs are represented each with five players on the list, counting the London Knights, Portland Winterhawks, Saint John Sea Dogs, Soo Greyhounds, and Windsor Spitfires, while the Erie Otters and Prince Albert Raiders produced four each.

71 CHL players were selected in the 2019 NHL Draft including 13 players chosen in the first round.
