Matthew Phillips – Victoria Royals (WHL)
Born: April 6, 1998 – Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Height: 5’6"
Weight: 137 lbs.
Shoots: Right
Very small, very quick but plays bigger than his frame. Noticeable every shift. Tremendous Work Ethic. Will put his head down and skate to the net constantly going to greasy areas. Elusive and can skate himself out of danger on a nightly basis. Uses his speed to beat anybody down the wing and has contributed nearly at a point-per-game pace. Causes many problems for defenders due to his determination with the puck. 

Grade: Fearless winger is hard to ignore but will need to grow considerably to compete at next level. B+

Dylan Wells – Peterborough Petes (OHL)
Born: January 3, 1998 – St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 182 lbs.
Catches: Left
A very patient goaltender who shows good concentration on the puck. Good at controlling his rebounds and rarely gives up a bad goal. Plays his angles well and squares up to the shooters aggressively at the top of the crease. Good communicator with his defencemen and never loses sight of the puck. Has a unique, uncomfortable hunched over style in net that opens up the corners and doesn’t make him look so big in the net.

Grade: Had a very strong start to the season but his game tailed off midseason and splits #1 duties now. B

Frederic Allard – Chicoutimi Sagueneens (QMJHL)
Position: D
Born: December 27, 1997 – Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
Height: 6’1"
Weight: 178 lbs.
Shoots: Right
Very good puck moving defenceman flying under the radar in the Q. Really good four-way movement skills and likes to skate the puck out of his zone whenever the opportunity is there. Good offensive instincts for a defenceman who is PP quarterback and generates offence from anywhere on the ice. Will get his shot on net through traffic and is not afraid to jump into the play. His defensive game needs work especially away from the puck and when he is working on sealing the boards.   

Grade: Not a flashy defenceman by any means but gets the job done while leaving plenty to improve on. B-
