27 QMJHLers on NHL Central Scouting November Players to Watch List

QMJHL

 

November’s National Hockey League Central Scouting’s list has been released and it contains players to watch ahead of the 2020 NHL Draft, held in Montreal, QC at the end of next June.

In total, 27 QMJHL players garnered the attention of the scouting experts. Among the group, five players received an “A” grade as potential first round picks, including potential first overall selection, Alexis Lafrenière.

Among the QMJHLers on the list are four goaltenders, 10 defencemen and 13 forwards. The list also features six European-born players currently suiting up in the Q.

15 of the 18 QMJHL franchises have at least one of their player’s ranked, with the Cape Breton Eagles, Chicoutimi Saguenéens, Saint John Sea Dogs and Shawinigan Cataractes leading the way with three representatives apiece.

Take note that players receiving an “A” rating are projected to be first round selections, players with a “B” rating are projected as second or third round picks, while a “C” rating indicates a candidate for rounds four to six of the NHL Draft.

Some players, such as Val-d’Or Foreurs’ Jérémie Biakabutuka, will eventually be ranked but have an “LV” designation for the time being after receiving limited viewing from scouts because of injuries.
