The 2017 USHL Phase I Draft takes place Monday, May 1. The Futures Draft, as it is also called, is for prospects born in 2001 only.
The following rankings are for those 2001 born prospects who have not accepted an invite from the NTDP, tendered with a USHL organization, or signed with a CHL organization.
While many Canadian-born players impressed this observer at the World Selects Invite, only those who have visited or committed to a Division I school or who play prep hockey are included in these rankings.
Several Canadian players who excelled at WSI such as Nick Porco, Graeme Clarke, Ryan Suzuki, Mason Primeau and Jamieson Rees, just to name a few, are omitted due to the likelihood they’ll play major junior.
Rankings and player notes are based off World Selects Invite, USA Hockey Select 15 Player Development Camp, USA Hockey Nationals and other local and regional events and games.
1. Alex Newhook, St. Andrew’s College, F, Shoots Left (Boston College) – He has elite speed and a terrific skill set overall. He has a good first step and a second gear to blow by defenders. His hockey IQ is also very good. His vision and play-making abilities are outstanding and he can also finish.
2. Grant Silianoff, Shattuck St. Mary’s 16U, F, Shoots Left (Notre Dame) – The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders will almost certainly select him with the first overall pick. He has strong hockey IQ and knows where to go to be in position to impact the offense. He does a good job finding seams in opposing defenses. He plays a heavy game and is strong on pucks. He has quick hands and can make some nifty, highlight reel plays.
3. Massimo Rizzo, Burnaby Winter Club, F, Shoots Left – He is extremely fast and has a gifted set of hands. He can be the playmaker and also the finisher. He was a first round pick in the WHL Bantam Draft, but he’s visited a few colleges including BC, North Dakota and Wisconsin. He finished out the season in the BCHL, but picking him high is risky with the possibility of him choosing the major junior route.
4. Michael Vukojevic, Mississauga Rebels, D, Shoots Left (Michigan) – The Ontario native was impressive at WSI last May. He has the size and physical tools to be a big time defender some day. He has good feet for a player his size. He keeps the puck going north and has good gaps.
5. Michael Mancinelli, Honeybaked 16U, F, Shoots Right (North Dakota) – He's got great hands. He can toe drag and stickhandle to evade defenders and gain zone entry and possession. He makes good passes. Despite his limited size, he distributes the puck well from down low and cycles it behind the goal line. He's quick and has a good acceleration which allows him to spin out of trouble. He's also physical and backchecks in his own zone when he's on his game.
6. Josh Nodler, Honeybaked 16U, F, Shoots Right (Michigan State) – He's a very good skater with a good first step. He plays the game with a purpose and protects the puck well. He has yet, in at this observer's viewings, to show an elite offensive skill set to go along with his high end skating.
7. Cade Webber, Rivers School, D, Shoots Left (Boston University) – If there's one player in this age group who projects well, but doesn't really show much yet, it's Webber. He's tall and lanky, but he closes well. He has a good first step, has length and skates with his head up. He's raw, but he's a player that has the potential to become a big time prospect with his size and tools. He, and Arthur Kaliyev who is OHL bound, are the only two players who declined the NTDP invite so some teams might be weary of picking him too high knowing he might go back to prep school.
8. Carson Riddle, Belle Tire 16U, F, Shoots Left (Western Michigan) – He's a very good skater with high end speed. His quickness is a major factor most shifts. He has a good shot, including a strong one-timer. His wrist shot is usually well-placed. He's a finisher who was very good at both WSI and Select 15s.
9. Jake Hale, Minneapolis HS, F, Shoots Right (Minnesota Duluth) – He has really good speed and hands. He's a possession forward who is strong on pucks. He plays through the body and isn't afraid to drive the net, despite being somewhat undersized. He has that extra gear to split the defense and to get time and space. He has quick hands to finish off plays in the scoring areas.
10. Braden Doyle, Lawrence Academy, D, Shoots Left (Boston University) – He's an offensive-minded defenseman that is at his best when he's keeping it simple. He's a good skater with elite puck skills and vision for a defenseman his age. He has good footwork to receive passes and get off quick one-timers. He has a hard shot and likes to join the rush. He had a tough NTDP Evaluation Camp, but he's still an athletic blue liner who should be picked in the first two rounds.
11. Lynden Breen, New Hampton Prep, F, Shoots Left (Maine) – He's an elite skater with a terrific mind for the game. He just sees the ice well and is one step ahead of many of his peers. His vision and ability to create offense are his strengths. He's a little small and there is the possibility he goes to the QMJHL, but he's a worthy top two round pick.
12. Mitchell Miller, Honeybaked 16U, D, Shoots Right (Miami) – He's a late ‘01 continues to grow as a player. He gets better each viewing. He's a good skater who isn't all that flashy, but he is poised. He has a high hockey IQ, reads plays well and breaks up plays defensively through sound positioning. He exhibits good vision and can man the point on the power play.
13. Kaden Bohlsen, Shattuck St. Mary’s 16U, F, Shoots Right (Minnesota) – He has good hands and a very good shot. He releases it quickly and places it perfectly. He has a good stick and is still somewhat growing into his big frame. Once he does, his skating should become better. He engages in all three zones and competes.
14. Jayden Struble, Noble & Greenough School, D, Shoots Left (Northeastern) – If based on pure athleticism alone, he's a top five pick -- and it's a no brainer. His skating and mobility are both good. He can be physical and he can move pucks up ice. He has a good stick and can defend with his feet in his own zone. Some criticize his hockey IQ in his own zone and his body language, but he has the potential to be a super star if he continues an upward trend in development.
15. Tyler Paquette, Hill School, F, Shoots Right (Penn State) – He's a power forward whose best hockey is still ahead of him. He's still coming into his own and learning how to play with his big frame. He has an explosive first step and plays a solid north-south game. He backchecks well, usually disrupting a play in his own and zone and turning it into offense in each viewing. He didn't have the best showing at NTDP Evaluation Camp, but he's still worthy of a second round pick.
16. Josh Langford, Dallas Stars 16U, G, Catches Left – He was the third best goaltender at NTDP Evaluation Camp. He covers a lot of the net and goes post-to-post quickly. He makes some really nice saves showing off his athleticism.
17. Max Bogdanovich, Junior Bruins 16U, F, Shoots Right (Maine) – He has pro size and uses it to his advantage. He drives the net hard after separating from defenders around the blue line in transition. He is consistently strong down low, impacts the flow of the game below the dots and cycles well. He's a strong, athletic kid.
18. Robbie Griffin, Junior Bruins 16U, Shoots Left (Northeastern) – He has elite speed that allows him to chase down loose pucks, win battles for the puck down low and get the puck to open teammates. He has the speed to separate and gain time and space. He sees the ice well, makes good drop passes in transition and has good touch on his feeds. He has a quick stick and wins the majority of face-offs. He's a complete two-way player.
19. Jacob Badal, Honeybaked 16U, F, Shoots Left (Western Michigan) – He's a physically mature player who is strong on pucks and rugged. He can make plays and thread needles on passes. He has just above average speed.
20. Marcus Gretz, Belle Tire 16U, D, Shoots Left (Ohio State) – He does a good job defending with his positioning and length, but his feet are still a little heavy. He got beat a few times on in-zone coverage, but he also made some really nice plays at NTDP Evaluation Camp. He's a player who could develop over the next few years. He's a late '01.
21. John Farinacci, Shattuck St. Mary’s 16U, F, Shoots Right (Harvard) – He's a good skater with very good hands. He has a knack for the puck and a nose for the net. His speed creates chances and he can make really slick plays with the puck on his stick. His stickhandling is good and he can finish chances.
22. Liam Connors, St. Sebastian’s School, F, Shoots Right (Boston University) – He's an undersized forward who is quick, slippery and crafty. His speed is dynamic enough that he can blow by defenders to the outside. He has a great motor and when he's at his best, his feet never stop moving. He's just a competitor with skill.
23. Arlo Merritt, Kimball Union Academy, F, Shoots Left – The Halifax, Nova Scotia native is a high-end talent although he hasn't put up big numbers in prep because the Wildcats are a veteran team and he's buried on the third line. He has pro size, skates well and has a good first step. He has the ability to turn on a second gear to get around and create space on defenders. He thinks the game well and is good away from the puck. Several Hockey East schools are tracking him closely. The only concern is the possibility he goes to the Q.
24. Ryan Johnson, Anaheim Jr. Ducks 16U, D, Shoots Left – He has good footwork and mobility, and can move the puck. Johnson is an impressive prospect that will be a nice commit for a NCAA school. He's confident with the puck and has good gaps. He gets shots on net from the point.
25. Nick Kent, Delta Hockey Academy 15U, D, Shoots Right (Quinnipiac) – He's a good skater. He's fast and has a good stick, but his skill set is too similar to others above him in these rankings to be considered. Look for him to be a good college player for Rand Pecknold down the road.
26. Kyle Harris, Toronto Marlboros 16U, F, Shoots Left – He's a good skater, but was not quite dynamic enough at NTDP Evaluation Camp, this observer's only viewing of him.
27. Michael Koster, Chaska HS, D, Shoots Left (Minnesota) – He has good footwork, skates well and has some offensive instincts from the point. He does a good job positioning himself well defensively and gets his stick in lanes. He has a solid wrist shot he gets on net from the point and has shown the capability of good lead passes that result in odd-man rushes for his team. His biggest limitation right now is his size.
28. Spencer Cox, Culver Academy 16U, D, Shoots Left (Miami) – In each viewing, he came across as a smooth and steady defender with good skating ability. His transition from defense to offense is good. He has good closing speed and has good footwork that allows him to do that and to move the puck quickly.
29. Ryan Robinson, Dallas Stars 16U, F, Shoots Left – He has good edge work and skates well. He can cut into the middle from the sides, but doesn't always finish.
30. Ethan Szmagaj, Little Caesars 16U, D, Shoots Left – It's not often a good defenseman below six-feet is known more for his toughness and grit than his offensive ability, but that's the case here. He's tough as nails, hard to knock off the puck and just flat-out wins battles. He's a good skater who retrieves pucks well and can skate out of trouble.
31. Hunter Weiss, Chicago Mission 16U, D, Shoots Left (Notre Dame) – He has that pro size already and has a good reach. He makes good breakout passes and moves the puck efficiently. He projects as more of a shutdown defender, but his foot speed is lacking.
32. Jake Boltmann, Edina HS, D, Shoots Right (Minnesota) – He's a late '01 who could continue to develop, but he's still learning to play solid defensively. He skates well and is athletic.
33. Evan Orr, Little Caesars 16U, D, Shoots Left (Michigan Tech) – He's a good skater with a good stick. He moves the puck well and likes to jump into the offense. His lateral movement and agility are good in addition to his straight line speed.
34. Christian Sbaraglia, Vaughan Kings, G, Catches Left (Penn State) – He's an athletic goaltender who has good fundamentals. He squares up to shooters, pushes off and skates well.
35. Ryan Sorkin, Team Illinois 16U, F, Shoots Right – He's got good hands and a nice offensive skill set. His skating isn't elite, but it's above average. He makes nifty plays with the puck and can also see the ice well.
36. P.J. Fletcher, Selects Academy 15U, F, Shoots Left (Quinnipiac) – He doesn't play a flashy game, but he's a lot like bigger Bobcat recruits who just get to pucks, can grind and be hard to play against. He goes up and down the wing.
37. Nik Norman, Shattuck St. Mary’s 16U, F, Shoots Left (Minnesota) – In most viewings, he's struggled at the jump from bantam to midget hockey, but he has decent straight line speed and competes for pucks that he gets on quickly.
38. Michael Waddell, Belle Tire 16U, F, Shoots Right – He's hard to knock off pucks and has decent speed, but has a funky stride. He competes and wins battles along the wall. He goes to the net with a purpose.
39. Ryan Coughlin, Selects Academy 15U, F, Shoots Right – He's a player that doesn't stick out until you watch him a few times, but he has slick hands. He can really finish and score from anywhere. He has that good initial burst of speed that helps him create opportunities.
40. Dylan Wendt, Belle Tire 16U, F, Shoots Right – He's physically mature and rugged so it's hard to tell if he's just dominating at this age because of that, but he's still worthy of an invite. He has a hard shot and plays heavy on pucks. He can power his way into the scoring areas and wins a lot of battles below the dots. He has decent hands and vision.
41. Simon Mack, Selects Academy 15U, D, Shoots Right (Penn State) – He's a very good puck mover and skates well. He covers ground in the defensive zone and has a good stick. His tight gaps and confidence in all three zones keep the puck moving forward and he pushes possession for his team.
42. James Rayhill, Gunnery Prep, D, Shoots Right (Cornell) – He's not the flashiest of players, but he's a smooth skater with good gaps and strong hockey IQ. He makes the simple yet effective play to move the puck up ice and create offense from the backend. He has good footwork and walks the blue line well. He retrieves pucks and has solid vision. He's very athletic and is also a good lacrosse player.
43. Garrett Pinoniemi, Delano HS, F, Shoots Left (St. Cloud) – At Select 15s, he displayed good vision and an ability to create offense. His stick handling skills were good, but he needs to bulk up a lot before moving on from high school hockey.
44. Mack Guzda, Honeybaked 16U, G, Catches Left – He really starred at the WSI last May, but was good at Select 15s as well. He's a big goaltender who projects better than the level he's playing at right now. He tracks pucks well and eats up potential rebounds. He was just slightly above average in viewings later this year, including NTDP Evaluation Camp and USA Hockey Nationals.
45. Connor Tait, Team Maryland 16U, F, Shoots Right (Quinnipiac) – He has good size and could develop into a nice power forward. When he plays with confidence he can be a real factor.
46. Cody Monds, Northwood School 16U, F, Shoots Right (St. Lawrence) – He's really quick and slippery with the puck. He's gritty and not afraid to go to the dirty areas to impact the offense.

49. William Foley, Pittsburgh Penguins 16U, D, Shoots Left – He has good size and is an intriguing prospect. In a viewing at the ECC Labor Day Cup, he made several nice outlet passes. He uses the board to chip pucks out into the neutral zone and has good vision to find forwards that are floating. He scored on a nice finish on a breakaway after coming out of the penalty box. He was tight on gaps, kept puck out of his own zone and had length for poke checks. He's confident. He also scored a power play goal from the point with a hard wrist shot.
50. Christian Sarlo, North Jersey Avalanche 15U, F, Shoots Left – He possesses above average speed and gets chances by gaining time and space. He's a strong skater who has the speed to catch up to linemates and recover. He's strong below the dots, he made a nice pass as he was coming off the right wall and another good feet into the slot from the left corner. He scored an absolute snipe of a goal as he was breaking into the zone that snuck in right below the bar.

53. Kenny Riddett, North Jersey Avalanche 15U, F, Shoots Left – He will have to grow and bulk up to truly be considered a good NCAA prospect. However, he's a fun player to watch who is bordering on being dynamic enough to be considered that kind of prospect now. He's quick and gets chances because of his speed. He has good agility. His speed causes turnovers. He can pass the puck around and really make plays happen.
54. Jayden Jensen, Belle Tire 16U, D, Shoots Right — He has good size and a good reach which helps him defend with his stick in his own zone. His physicality and mobility are both above average.
55. Jake Flynn, Thayer Academy, D, Shoots Right – He had a great bantam year before falling off the radar of some, but he has reemerged in a big way for a very good prep team. His skating is his strongest asset. He's very mobile, can move the puck and spin out of trouble. He projects as an offensive defenseman. He still needs to hone his skills in his own end and keep things simple, but he's a Division I player.
56. Thomas Munro, St. Andrew’s College 16U, F, Shoots Right – His skating is what has him where he is on this list, but he can flat out finish. He's the type of kid who gets his nose dirty and scores a lot of garbage goals.
57. T.J. Koufis, Chicago Mission 16U, F, Shoots Right (Wisconsin) – He's a north-south type player who is still learning to play the game on a consistent basis. He's heavy on pucks and drives to the net when he's playing his best.

59. Dylan Davies, Chicago Mission 16U, F, Shoots Left – He doesn't exhibit the best of offensive skill sets, but he plays heavy on pucks. He wins countless battles on the wall and his physicality on the forecheck leads to turnovers.

He's not a sure thing as far as Division I goes, but he's worth keeping an eye on as he develops over the next few years.
70. Paul Letto, Team Illinois 16U, D, Shoots Left – He doesn't have the best speed or skating ability, but he has a good stick and defends with his feet. He can break pucks out with his vision and stick skills.
71. Chase McInnis, Dexter School, F, Shoots Left – He has a quick short stride and while his skill set isn't as elite as others above him, he does a nice job in all situations.

132. Danny Colon, NJ Frozen Tide 16U, F, Shoots Right – He's quick and gritty. He can separate and he has a sneaky release. He's still a little on the smaller side, but he's worth taking late in the draft.
133. Kevin MacKay, Dexter School, D, Shoots Left –
134. Nicky Niemo, Islanders HC 16U, F, Shoots Right –
135. Tristan Fasig, Westchester Express 16U, F, Shoots Left – He's a good skater with pretty good size. He hasn't yet shown an ability to consistently produce offense, but he is good on puck pursuit. He's a late ‘01.

137. Josh Groll, San Diego Gulls 16U, D, Shoots Left –
138. Ryan Pineault, Westminster School, D, Shoots Right – He's an undersized defenseman who didn't get much playing time during prep season, but he's mobile and can move the puck, as he exhibited over summer.
139. Leo Bacallao, Madison Capitols 16U, F, Shoots Right –
140. Frankie Ireland, Junior Bruins 16U, F, Shoots Left – He's small, but he makes some good passes and is quick.
141. Cam Recchi, Cushing Academy, F, Shoots Left –
142. Connor Lovett, Junior Bruins 16U, F, Shoots Right – He's quick to the outside and has separation speed. He's very nimble on his skates and creates chances by getting time and space.
143. Joel Matthews, Wayzatta HS, F, Shoots Right –
144. Jack Garland, South Shore Kings 16U, F, Shoots Right – He has good size and played a physical game. He got his stick in lanes to break up shots and passes. He made a hard hit to disrupt a breakout. He backchecked consistently. Whether or not he has the offensive upside is unsure, but he's intriguing with his size.
145. Danny Fraga, Wayzatta HS, G, Catches Left –
146. Aaron Randazzo, Alexandria HS, G, Catches Left —
147. Harrison Bazianos, Team Illinois 16U, F, Shoots Left – He's quick and has a high compete level. He's more of a long shot, but he makes plays because of his energy and work ethic.
148. Vincent Spaziante, CT Jr. Rangers 16U, F, Shoots Right – He's still learning to finish, but he's an ‘01 with an offensive skill set worth watching. He's fast with a quick first step. He protects the puck, makes nice low to high pass from down in the corner.
