@PAPucks

The 2015 USA Hockey Select 16 Festival at the Northtown Center in Amherst, NY showcased many of the best 1999-born prospects in America. Excluded from the tournament were players invited to join the US National Team Development Program (USNTDP).

It was a great few days to evaluate players in this age group and see the development, and in some cases regression, of prospects who were at last summer's Select 15 Camp.

Overall, USA Hockey does a great job of forming teams and allowing players to showcase their talents. If there was one gripe, it would be the need for USA Hockey to find a different setting to evaluate referees. Due to the referees also being evaluated, there are far too many ticky tack penalties called.

In summer hockey at a showcase like this, only the egregious and blatant calls should be made. Remember, when a borderline penalty is called, it means one less player is out on the ice to showcase his talent.

Without further ado, here are the player rankings, by position, for the entire Select 16 Camp. The rankings try to incorporate projected worth with how the player performed this week. One final note, the heights and weights are those listed in the scout book by USA Hockey. Some figures were clearly "inflated."

This post will be defensemen and goaltenders, followed by a separate post with just the forwards.

Defensemen

1. Joey Keane
Gold #4
DOB: 7/2/99
Height/Weight: 6-0/175
Shoots: Right
Hometown: Homer Glen, Ill.
2014-15 Team: Chicago Mission U16
USHL Draft: Dubuque Fighting Saints (Tender)
College Commitment: Miami

He's an athlete who moves really well. He has good stick skills with the puck in transition as well as on defense with a good poke check. He plays the man well defensively. He might lack the flash or elite skating ability of some of the other top blue liners here, but he made a heck of a move in a shootout attempt for a goal. Overall, he's just very solid.

2. Tommy Miller
Grey #7
DOB: 3/6/99
Height/Weight: 6-2/170
Shoots: Right
Hometown: West Bloomfield, Mich.
2014-15 Team: Victory Honda U16
USHL Draft: Fargo Force (Round 1, #4 Overall)
College Commitment: Michigan State

He's a player who made more of an impression on this observer as the week went along. He was strong on gaps, stands strong and up to opposing forwards coming at him and possesses a good stick. He's a decent to above average skater who just keeps it simple and gets the job done in his own zone.

3. Clayton Phillips
Grey #2
DOB: 9/9/99
Height/Weight: 6-0/175
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Edina, Minn.
2014-15 Team: Edina High School
USHL Draft: Fargo Force (Round 1, #9 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He makes a real good first pivot, skates well and has a rocket of a one-timer. He needs to learn the game a little compared to some of the other top defensemen, but he possesses tremendous physical tools.

4. Reilly Walsh
Kelly #3
DOB: 4/21/99
Height/Weight: 6-0/175
Shoots: Right
Hometown: Andover, NH
2014-15 Team: Proctor Academy
USHL Draft: Tri-City Storm (Round 1, #14 Overall)
College Commitment: Harvard

The knock on Walsh has always been his defensive zone play. The strength of his game will always be his skating and puck skills, but he's not bad defensively. His smooth footwork, lateral mobility and overall athleticism help him recover when he makes a bad first step defensively and gets caught. He has a terrific one-timer from the point with his footwork and strength. His father is his prep coach and he'll play there for two more seasons before one year in the USHL and on to Harvard.

5. Ben Mirageas
Royal #4
DOB: 5/8/99
Height/Weight: 6-0/175
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Newburyport, Mass.
2014-15 Team: Avon Old Farms
USHL Draft: Bloomington Thunder (Round 2, #30 Overall)
College Commitment: Providence

For those observers who hadn't seen him since the prep season, the improvement was drastic. He had a growth spurt and played really well. He skates so well. His footwork is top notch. He walks the line on the power play, has good gaps and his speed keeps him in every play. He's better defensively than many give him credit for and good one-on-one.

6. Jack Rathbone
Orange #6
DOB: 5/20/99
Height/Weight: 5-10/155
Shoots: Left
Hometown: West Roxbury, Mass.
2014-15 Team: Dexter School
USHL Draft: Youngstown Phantoms (Round 2, #25 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He's a kid this observer is real high on and has been for a while. By his lofty standards, he was only alright the first few days, but he got better. His skating is so smooth with an effortless stride and a good pivot. He sees the ice well and is a magician in transition. Like Walsh, his athleticism and skating ability allows him to recover well when he gets beat defensively.

7. Matthew Anderson
Orange #7
DOB: 4/11/99
Height/Weight: 5-11/180
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Shakopee, Minn.
2014-15 Team: Holy Family Catholic
USHL Draft: Green Bay Gamblers (Round 1, #2 Overall)
College Commitment: Minnesota-Duluth

His vision is very good. He has good footwork and has great speed in transition. He was paired with Rathbone for much of the week here and they complimented each other well. His gap control is good and he's solid defensively.

8. Ronald Brickey
Kelly #4
DOB: 5/27/99
Height/Weight: 6-3/175
Shoots: Right
Hometown: Burtchville, Mich.
2014-15 Team: Detroit Compuware U16
USHL Draft: Muskegon Lumberjacks (Round 6, #84 Overall)

Height/Weight: 6-0/175
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Champlin, Minn.
2014-15 Team: Benilde-St. Margaret's
USHL Draft: Sioux City Musketeers (Round 2, #21 Overall)
College Commitment: UConn

He has all the physical tools, skates well and has a nice first pivot, but he's the type of player who hasn't quite reached his ceiling. If he can put everything together on a more consistent basis, there is a lot to like about his game.

10. Bryce DeFazio
Columbia #4
DOB: 5/28/99
Height/Weight: 6-3/185
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Colorado Springs, Col.
2014-15 Team: Colorado Rampage U16
USHL Draft: Waterloo Black Hawks (Round 5, #70 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He got better as the week progressed. He has a pro frame, is a strong force out there and forces plays to the perimeter. He is poised, makes heady lead passes, even if not flashy, and has a good stick in pursuit.

11. Ben Pirko
Black #6
DOB: 5/27/99
Height/Weight: 6-1/155
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Arlington, Va.
2014-15 Team: Selects Hockey Academy U16
USHL Draft: Omaha Lancers (Round 6, #91 Overall)

12. Anthony DeMeo
Red #3
DOB: 6/16/99
Height/Weight: 6-1/188
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Port Washington, NY
2014-15 Team: New Jersey Rockets 19U
USHL Draft: --
College/Major Junior Commitment: Soo Greyhounds (OHL)

He has the size and skating ability that pro scouts will like during his draft year. He has a good fist pivot and has good agility going forward and back. He's solid in both ends and projects well down the road.

13. Graham Lillibridge
Grey #3
DOB: 1/29/99
Height/Weight: 5-8/145
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Geneva, Ill.
2014-15 Team: Chicago Mission U16
USHL Draft: Muskegon Lumberjacks (Tender)
College Commitment: Yale

For a smaller defenseman, he plays a real tough and physical game. He has good footwork and makes a good first pivot which helps him stay in position and ahead of some of his bigger opposition. He has a fluid stride. He gets shots through from the point and makes good, quick decisions. He has a good stick and shows smarts for the game with nice chips up the wall.

14. Michael Callahan
Columbia #2
DOB: 9/23/99
Height/Weight: 6-1/185
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Franklin, Mass.
2014-15 Team: Roxbury Latin
USHL Draft: Bloomington Thunder (Round 4, #56 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He really stood out in the first few games, but then got a major and game misconduct that seemed to make him play cautiously the rest of the way. He is a good skater for a big guy who's athletic. He has a good first stride and has a good reach.

15. Michael Schumacher
White #2
DOB: 2/15/99
Height/Weight: 5-10/160

Shoots: Right
Hometown: Manalpan, NJ
2014-15 Team: Team Comcast 16U
USHL Draft: --
College Commitment: --

He's relatively new to the radar screen and got better as the camp went along. He's an offensive-minded defenseman who made some nice moves in transition, had good lateral movement and agility  and cuts well. He had a beautiful backhand goal to finish off a rush on the last day of camp. He seemed more confident later in the week at both ends of the ice.

17. Anthony Stark
Gold #5
DOB: 4/9/99
Height/Weight: 5-8/165
Shoots: Right
Hometown: New York, NY
2014-15 Team: Shattuck St. Mary's

Hometown: Bemidji, Minn.
2014-15 Team: Bemidji High School
USHL Draft: Des Moines Buccaneers (Round 2, #24 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He's smooth, pivots well and has a good stick. He has decent vision and skating ability to push the puck in transition. He had nice closing speed and pursued the puck carrier well. He doesn't do anything overly well, but he does everything just well enough.

19. Kimball Johnson
Red #7
DOB: 5/27/99
Height/Weight: 6-0/175
Shoots: Right
Hometown: Denton, Texas
2014-15 Team: Dallas Stars U16
USHL Draft: --
College Commitment: --

He really impressed throughout the week with his skating ability. He has a good first pivot and has superior agility. He makes smart, heady lead passes and helps in transition. He seemed a little intimidated in the All-Star game, but during the week he had good patience and poise out there.

20. Tommy Craft
Forest #2
DOB: 2/15/99
Height/Weight: 6-5/210
Shoots: Right
Hometown: Hamden, Conn.
2014-15 Team: Deerfield Academy
USHL Draft: Bloomington Thunder (Round 9, #143 Overall)
College Commitment: --

This observer hasn't always been as high on Craft as some others, but he started to show signs this week of the hype he's been getting. He's big and covers a lot of ground in the defensive zone. He has decent recovery speed when he gets beat. He has a good reach and a good stick, but needs to work on making quicker decisions with the puck on outlet passes. He'll be a shutdown defender if he gets to the next level.

21. Anthony Scanzuso
Royal #7
DOB: 3/16/99
Height/Weight: 5-11/167
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Lancaster, NY
2014-15 Team: Nichols Prep
USHL Draft: --

He also played up some for the Buffalo Saints 18U team last year and his poise shows. He has good gap control, skates and pivots well. He has a good stick, blocks shots and has a good one-timer.

22. Christopher Trouba
White #3
DOB: 3/30/99
Height/Weight: 6-3/195
Shoots: Right
Hometown: Auburn Hills, Mich.
2014-15 Team: Detroit Compuware
USHL Draft: Youngstown Phantoms (Round 5, #80 Overall)
College Commitment: --

His foot speed needs some improvement, but his size and physical tools are promising. He has a good stick, recovers well and covers a lot of ground with his reach.

23. Carson Kosobud
Royal #6
DOB: 6/4/99
Height/Weight: 6-0/185
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Moorhead, Minn.
2014-15 Team: Moorhead HS
USHL Draft: Fargo Force (Round 5, #68 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He's a solid defenseman who is responsible in his own end and stays out of the way in a good way. He rides opposing forwards to the wall, skates well and has good awareness of the ice.

24. Jayson Dobay
Gold #6
DOB: 7/27/99
Height/Weight: 5-11/165
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Weymouth, Mass.
2014-15 Team: BC High
USHL Draft: Cedar Rapids RoughRiders (Round 8, #125 Overall)
College Commitment: --

His stride could use some work, but there's a lot to like about his game to overlook the skating. He's pretty solid going forward, but needs to get better going backwards. However, his vision is uncanny. He sees things on the ice that few others do. He finds streaking teammates in transition and makes some elite passes. He has a quick stick and gets shots on net from the point.

25. Colby Bukes
White #7
DOB: 2/1/99
Height/Weight: 5-11/178
Shoots: Right
Hometown: Littleton, Colo.
2014-15 Team: Colorado Thunderbirds 16U
USHL Draft: Chicago Steel (Round 2, #23 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He's a strong kid who read plays well, had a good stick and made very few mistakes. He's another one of those defensemen who is good because he's not noticed out there.

26. Corson Green
Orange #2
DOB: 3/4/99
Height/Weight: 6-2/200
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Potsdam, NY
2014-15 Team: CIH Academy
USHL Draft: --
College Commitment: --

His speed and foot speed needs improvement, but his size and big frame are intriguing. He's awkward on his skates, but he has a good stick, maintains defensive zone coverage and does a good job one-on-one. He's decent going straight forward and can push the transition. He's a fifth round OHL selection of the Soo Greyhounds so a defection to major junior is a possibility.

27. Marc Del Gaizo
Royal #2
DOB: 10/11/99
Height/Weight: 5-9/175
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Basking Ridge, NJ
2014-15 Team: NJ Rockets U16

Height/Weight: 5-9/155
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Algonquin, Ill.
2014-15 Team: Chicago Young Americans U16
USHL Draft: --
College Commitment: --

He's small, but he skates well with good recovery speed. His speed allows him to join the rush. He also makes good lead passes. He can man the point on the power play. He just needs to simplify his game a little and he could be a decent college defenseman.

29. Erik Dahl
Red #19
DOB: 1/8/99
Height/Weight: 6-4/205
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Lakeville, Minn.
2014-15 Team: Shattuck St. Mary's
USHL Draft: Sioux City Musketeers (Round 5, #66 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He's a big kid who's a little bit slow footed, but he has the athleticism to make a nice move here and there. He'll have to improve defensively, namely his speed to not get beat, but his size and frame are intriguing.

30. Nicholas Hale
Kelly #2
DOB: 5/7/99
Height/Weight: 5-9/150
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Cary, NC
2014-15 Team: Carolina Jr. Hurricanes U16
USHL Draft: --
College Commitment: --

Heading to Salisbury Prep in the fall, he has good footwork and positioning, but needs to add some lower body strength. He has good vision and can quarterback the power play. He runs around a little and needs to be a little more poised, but he stays on his man, has a good stick and always has his head up.

31. Hunter Lellig
Forest #3
DOB: 3/16/99
Height/Weight: 6-1/180

Hometown: Grand Rapids, Mich.
2014-15 Team: Oakland Junior Grizzlies 16U
USHL Draft: Youngstown Phantoms (Round 16, #259 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He's a good skater who had a decent week, but didn't impress as much as at Select 15s. He has some athleticism, but needs to refine his defensive zone coverage and hockey awareness.

33. Colin Felix
Gold #7
DOB: 1/7/99
Height/Weight: 6-2/172
Shoots: Right
Hometown: Audubon, NJ
2014-15 Team: St. George's School
USHL Draft: Green Bay Gamblers (Round 6, #81 Overall)
College Commitment: UMass

His skating and foot speed could use some work, but he has solid vision and a real good stick. He got beat by speedier and quicker forwards several times in camp, but he also made countless good plays with poke checks and getting in shooting and passing lanes.

34. Brian Scoville
Red #5
DOB: 3/28/99
Height/Weight: 6-3/210
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Agawam, Mass.
2014-15 Team: Cushing Academy
USHL Draft: Sioux Falls Stampede (Round 7, #105 Overall)
College Commitment: UMass

A little slow of foot, his size, stick and awareness on the ice make up for it. He does have the ability to make a nice move going forward despite his lack of speed. He certainly projects as a physical, shutdown defender at the collegiate level.

35. Ryan Wilson
White #5
DOB: 5/17/99
Height/Weight: 6-1/175
Shoots: Right
Hometown: San Diego, Calif.
2014-15 Team: San Diego Junior Gulls
USHL Draft: --

Height/Weight: 5-11/162
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Salem, NH
2014-15 Team: Central Catholic
USHL Draft: --
College Commitment: --

He's a decent skater with some athleticism who could fine tune his stride. His first stride is above average and he likes to join the rush. If he can improve his overall defensive zone coverage, he has a decent stick.

2014-15 Team: North Jersey Avalanche U16

2014-15 Team: Northern Junior Cyclones 16U
USHL Draft: --
College Commitment: --

He has the physical tools, but he over-handles the puck at times. He's aggressive, stands up players early and has a good stick. He's a kid to watch this upcoming season as he heads to play for Tim Whitehead at KUA. If he can learn the game some, he has all the physical tools.

40. Joshua Ess

DOB: 4/3/99
Height/Weight: 5-11/170
Shoots: Left
Hometown: Burnsville, Minn.
2014-15 Team: Lakeville South High School
USHL Draft: Cedar Rapids RoughRiders (Round 4, #61 Overall)
College Commitment: --

He's solid overall, but didn't have his best week here. His defensive zone coverage is decent and if he works on his first pivot, he could be a prospect to keep an eye on.
