Here's my list of 93's. I'm fairly solid on the top eight, so don't bother trying to change my mind. All of the top eight are simply playing at a completely different level than other kids their age. The rest of the names are primarily good players on traditionally good teams in traditionally good leagues. Obviously, a handful of these USA players will be persuaded to play in the CHL leagues, but I think most will try to go the college route. I didn't even bother trying to find Canadians for this list for the same reasons. However, I'll consider adding any standout Canadian kids who've had parents or siblings play college hockey. I'm open to suggestions.
