Carter Verhaeghe (Niagara, OHL)

All in all, it's been a great season for Carter Verhaeghe. Although he couldn't keep up with the near two-points-per-game pace he set for himself early in the year, Verhaeghe still finished the OHL regular season with 28 goals and 82 points in 65 games - good for 21st in league scoring. Those are some pretty solid numbers for a 3rd round pick in his Draft +1 year.

With the regular season completed, Verhaeghe will move on to a much greater challenge. His Niagara IceDogs currently hold down the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference Quarter Finals, and will begin their series with North Bay on Friday. First off, wow, that's a long bus ride. Second, the Battalion's stingy defense allowed only 189 goals against all season, 3rd lowest in the league. Verhaeghe might need that early season scoring touch if Niagara hopes to make a series of it.

Connor Brown (Erie, OHL)

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but with only 10 points in his last 10 games, Connor Brown is currently in mired in his coldest points streak of the season. And that’s not meant to be construed as a negative statement, but a confirmation of just how well Brown has played this year.

Brown’s 115 points (42 goals, 74 assists) in just 62 games so far this season make him the highest scoring player in not only the OHL, but the entire CHL. He’s been so dominant, that some believe he’s the early favourite to walk away with the OHL’s Red Tilson Trophy for the league’s most outstanding player.
