in Other News

 

April 16, 2019

Cranbrook’s Bowen Byram of the Vancouver Giants, heads up the list of 44 WHL players who have made the cut on the final NHL Prospects list, prior to this year’s draft in Vancouver, June 21-22.

Whitehorse, Yukon born Dylan Cozens, who played minor hockey at Delta and Yale is next in the group of BC raised players who are listed. Cozens, a Lethbridge Bronco, is coming in at #5.

In all, fourteen WHL players on the list were either born in BC, or raised in BC for at least part of their career (Dylan Cozens, was born in Whitehorse, but played at Delta and Yale Hockey Academies before joining the WHL).

North Vancouver’s Gianni Fairbrother is the next highest ranked BC WHL player. Fairbrother, who plays defence for Everett Silvertips, was one of several BC players whose stock jumped significantly from the mid-term rankings, moving up 35 spots to #50 overall.

The Edmonton Oil Kings and Kelowna Rockets lead all WHL teams with five picks each.
