Hot 15 Prospects

It's been a while since I created a Hot 15 list. However, pretty much all of them would be listed on my previous ten or so posts. It occurs to me that a few more of these players than normal are likely to play Major Juniors, but as usual, I'll list them anyhow.

1. Matt Nieto (92/F) - NTDP (not sure, but the leading scorer without a commitment does not look good)
2. Brandon Saad (92/F) - NTDP (OHL possible, but the NTDP committment is a new wrinkle)
3. Adam Clendening (92/D) - NTDP (another goner)
4. Sahir Gill (92/F) - Vernon-BCHL
5. Rocco Grimaldi (93/F) - NTDP
6. Brendan Walker (92/F) - Portage-MJHL
7. Brendon Algeo (91/D) - Olds-AJHL
8. Sean Blunden (90/D) - Gloucester-CJHL
9. Daniel Carr (91/F) - St. Albert-AJHL
10. Andrew Ryan (93/D) - NTDP

Others to consider
Alexx Privitera (93/D) - NTDP
Andy Welinski (93/D) - Duluth East
Barrett Kaib (93/D) - NTDP
Brady Vail (94/F) - Compuware
Cole Bardreau (93/D) - NTDP
Dan Carlson - (93/F) - NTDP
Frankie Vatrano (94/F) - EmpireJHL
Jacob MacDonald (93/D) - Compuware
JT Miller (93/F) - NTDP
Kyle Rau (92/F) - Eden Prarie HS
Mat Bodie (90/D) - BCHL
Matt Van Voorhis (93/D) - NTDP
Michael Paliotta (93/D) - NTDP
Ryan Haggerty (93/F) - NTDP
Shane Sooth (92/F) - NTDP
Tyler Biggs (93/F) - NTDP
Zac Lazzara (93/F) - NTDP

On the hot 15 (because he only belongs in the top 15) you left out the most consistent 93 forward.
Complete player, has won with every team that he's ever played on. Has been the leading goal scorer on every team that he's ever played with even while playing up. 2 national championships, and has won every state championship that he was eligible for. 1st american born selected in the OHL draft this year.etc.etc.etc. I'll let you figure it out.

Vince Trocheck? He signed an OHL contract, he's ineligible for college.

You have Baker from OJHL at number 10, my buddy saw him skate and said he is god awful slow, that is why he probably has not been offered yet.
