A Grey Bruce Minor Midget Highlanders duo has made a "players to watch for" list ahead of this weekend's OMHA Showcase in St. Catharines. Goaltender Cameron Harron and right wing Benjamin Scheel have been recognized by Ontario Hockey League's director of Central Scouting Darrell Woodley as prospects for scouts to keep a close eye on prior to the Highlanders doing battle with nine other SCTA clubs at the Seymour-Hannah Sports Complex, Jan. 28-29. A 5-10, 155-pound native of Shelburne, Ont., Harron, so far this season, has posted a record of 5-13-5 with a goals against average of 2.67 and an .892 save percentage. "He's definitely one of the better goalies in this loop and gives his a team a chance to win games. He's very athletic and moves well," said Woodley. Scheel, a 5-11, 170-pound forward from Kincardine, Ont., is considered to be one of the top two-way players in the SCTA's minor midget circuit this season. He has racked up 23 points (nine goals, 14 assists) and 16 penalty minutes in 43 games. "He's their best forward, creates a lot of their offence and is real good at all aspects," said Woodley. "He mucks it up in the corner and drives the net well for scoring chances." The Highlanders open the OMHA Showcase, which is expected to attract a plethora of junior, pro and university scouts, on Saturday against the Niagara Rivermen, before taking on the Southern Tier Admirals on Sunday. Other players to watch for, according to Woodley, include centre Nick Petti (Southern Tier Admirals), right wing Matt Schmalz (Southern Tier Admirals), defenceman David Eccles (Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs), centre Connor Murphy (Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs), defenceman Patrick Sanvido (Guelph Jr. Storm), centre Owen MacDonald (Guelph Jr. Storm), right wing Chris Poletek (Halton Hurricanes), defenceman Lucas Zitmanis (Halton Hurricanes), defenceman Stefan LeBlanc (Oakville Rangers), right wing Theo Lewis (Oakville Rangers), centre Jake Couglar (Brampton Jr. Battalion), centre Jeffrey Gilligan (Burlington Eagles), left wing Bryce Mayea (Burlington Eagles), defenceman Jake Kisac (Niagara North Stars) and centre Dakota Kingston (Niagara Rivermen). Recent OMHA graduates include Corey Perry, Steven Stamkos, Matt Duchene and Cody Hodgson.
