Nick Cousins is still at the top of the forwards’ list, and for good reason. He leads the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the OHL in points and is 11th in the league with 11 goals and 29 assists in 29 games.

Derek Mathers is first on his team and 17th in the OHL with 51 PIMs for the Peterborough Petes. He’s second to Marc-Andre Bourdon for the lead in that category across the prospects on this list, as Bourdon has 59 PIMs.

Andrew Rowe is 11th in the ECHL’s Eastern Conference in terms of scoring with nine goals and 10 assists in 20 games. Rowe’s total may beat any of the prospects on this list who play for the Titans, but Andy Bohmbach has the same totals in one less contest.
