Six Manitobans have been named to NHL Central Scouting’s Preliminary ‘Players to Watch’ list for the 2021 NHL Draft.
Winnipeg ICE defenceman Carson Lambos and Seattle Thunderbirds forward Conner Roulette were given an ‘A’ rating while Moose Jaw Warriors Forward Eric Alarie, Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Cole Jordan, Portland Winterhawks forward Tyson Kozak, and Penticton Vees defenceman Owen Murray were given ‘C’ ratings.
NHL Central Scouting identifies players with a rating system that includes four categories. The ‘A’ rating indicates players projected to be first-round candidates. The ‘B’ rating indicates players projected to be second- or third-round candidates, and the ‘C’ rating indicates players projected to be fourth-, fifth-, or sixth-round candidates. Though no players received this designation, ‘LV’ represents a player who has not had sufficient viewings, due to injury.
