Check out the information on the Ontario Hockey League site for the media guide and prospects magazine. I haven't had a chance to go over any of this information, and quite frankly would not know anything about these players. Let's just hope that Killer choses well in the first 4 rounds. It would be nice to get some additional solid talent for the team.

Would be happy to hear from anyone out there who has info on these prospects.
