NHL Central Scouting released its mid-term rankings Wednesday morning. A number of players with local ties -- including some UMD recruits -- are included.
North American skaters are here. Follow the links to check out the other lists.
UMD recruits on the list are as follows:
100. Austyn Young, F, Sioux Falls (USHL)
139. Adam Johnson, F, Hibbing
187. Austin Farley, F, Fargo (USHL)
34 (goalies). Matt McNeely, Cedar Rapids (USHL)
Local players on the list:
132. Jake Bischoff, D, Grand Rapids
178. Trevor Olson, F, Duluth East
198. Dom Toninato, F, Duluth East
Not all these players will be drafted. For many of them, they're probably better off if they don't.
But it's nice recognition for some young players who have bright futures.
