The National Hockey League’s Central Scouting release on Monday their initial list of “Players to Watch”, featuring hundreds of amateur hockey players that are in their sights ahead of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, which will be taking place in Montreal in June. The hundreds of prospects that appear in this list are separated in three groups; A Rating, B Rating and C Rating. An A Rating means the player is a first round candidate, a B Rating means the player is a second to third round candidate, and the C rating means the player is a fourth to sixth round candidate.
Three Ottawa 67’s players that currently are on the active roster have been named to this list. Austrian forward Marco Rossi, who’s put up four points in two games so far this season, is the only Ottawa 67 to have an A rating. Jack Quinn was elected to the B rated group, while goaltender Will Cranley has been ranked a C.
Four other players that are part of the 67’s organization were also selected to this list. 2018 7th round pick Dylan Peterson was rated a B prospect, while Colby Ambrosio (2018 4th round pick), Chase Bradley (2018 4th round pick) and Trevor Kunta (2017 12th rounder) were all listed as C prospects.
