Those who know me know that I am a huge fan of Mikey McLeod. It was right around this time last year that he seemed to gain confidence in his game and began to break out for the Mississauga Steelheads. He is the leader on a team that if filled with high end talent for this year’s talent. In the past month McLeod has begun to take the next step. He is showing scouts that he is trully an elite talent in the draft class of 2016 and it has given me the confidence to finally put him as high in the rankings as I wanted to from the beginning.
Other changes to the top-30:
- Sean Day has fallen out of the first round and has been replaced by his teammate Nathan Bastian.
- Will Bitten of the Flint Firebirds didn’t let his team’s off ice issues derail his season and has continued to improve forcing him up near the top-20.
- Luke Kunin’s outstanding play as a freshmen at the University of Wisconsin has moved him up the rankings.
