Minnesota High School Player Rankings

It's been quite a while since my last post... sorry about that. You're all due for a new Hot 15, but instead you're going to get a player ranking based on a formula I'm still trying to tweak. Minnesota High School hockey is the most frustrating league to prospect from just looking at stats. The strength of schedule varies greatly from one team to the next. My thought was to create a formula to account for this, and I think I'm starting to get close. Since the +/- stat is missing too much data to help compare "defensive responisibility", you're going to get my top 15 uncommitted forwards and my top 10 uncommitted (offensive) defensemen. Now, this isn't going to include my thoughts on who's a better college prospect, it's just the players doing well (sometimes just because they're a senior on the top PP unit).

1. Reilly, Connor - Holy Angels HS
2. Westin, Chris - Virginia HS
3. Gaarder, Connor - Edina HS
4. Gaede, Max - Woodbury HS
5. Jamnick, Aaron - Hibbing HS
6. McKee, Jake - Tartan HS
7. Haeg, John - Holy Angels HS
8. Skalbeck, Archie - Hopkins HS
9. Siiro, A.J. - Bloomington Jefferson HS
10. Horgan, Riley - Mound Westonka HS
11. Gross, Josh - Maple Grove HS
12. Persian, Ben - Orono HS
13. Christen, Dustin - St Cloud Apollo HS
14. Hendrickson, Garrett - Virginia HS

16. Worzala, Andy - Sartell HS

17. Lovick, Jordan - Centennial HS

Offensive Defensemen

So when do we get to see your thoughts on who's real and who the phantom players are?

Those aren't even the best players in the state. I think you need to re look at the stats.
