Thursday, February 14, 2013

Richmond Hill, ON:  -  The Ontario Minor Hockey Association has released the tenth and final edition of the Minor Midget AAA Top Five Rankings for the 2012-13 regular season. The Oakville Rangers finish off the rankings where they have been all season long, at the top. Moving into OMHA Playdowns it will be interesting to see if the Rangers can carry their dominance to an OMHA Championship or if the likes of the Southern Tier Admirals, Whitby Wildcats, Barrie Jr. Colts and York Simcoe Express can push for an upset and capture those red hats. The Kingston Jr. Frontenacs finish the season as an honourable mention but were in and out of the rankings all season. The Jr. Frontenacs along with the Halton Hurricanes and Grey Bruce Highlanders are the dark horse teams to look out for come OMHA Playdown time.

The bi-weekly OMHA Minor Midget AAA Top Five Rankings are selected by a panel of Ontario Hockey League scouts.

ETA/SCTA Players to Watch:
Brett McKenzie [Oakville Rangers] - With his very good skating ability, skill level, and two-way play, Brett reminds a lot of people of Jordon Staal at this age. He competes in all areas of the ice and has the ability to create chances for himself and his teammates with his skill and work ethic. McKenzie currently leads the SCTA in scoring with 51 points.

Matt Spencer [Oakville Rangers] –Even though his team’s games are free to attend, he is worth paying money to see no other player in the OMHA will bring you out of your seat more than this player. Spencer is a big body that skates very well, his skill level on the backend is suburb and he is capable of leading the rush or connecting a crisp pass to one of his teammates. Matt is a leader on his team that puts forth a great work ethic game in and game out and he will likely be a very high pick in the upcoming OHL Priority Selection.

Mike Davies [Southern Tier Admirals] - Mike is a very hard player to play against he has high-end skill and can beat you on the scoreboard. He also is a tireless worker that can be physically punishing and battles hard for pucks, plays the game hard and creates a lot of opportunities for himself and his teammates. Even though he has missed some time this season due to injury he has 39 points [including 26 goals] in only 27 games played.
