54 players on USHL 23-man rosters were listed on NHL Central Scouting's Preliminary 2015 September Players to Watch List

NHL Central Scouting released their Preliminary 2015 September Players to Watch list this morning. The annual list identifies players using the following criteria:

 

  • A Rating – Indicates a 1st round candidate
  • B Rating – Indicates a 2nd/3rd round candidate
  • C Rating – Indicates a 4th/5th/6th round candidate
  • LV (Limited Viewing) – Injured players who have not had sufficient viewings to be categorized

 

The USHL had 54 players currently on 23-man rosters, in addition to 11 USHL alumni, six of which are playing college hockey. 50 of the 54 players have NCAA Division I college commitments. The 54 players tied the Ontario Hockey League for most players listed by any junior league in the world. The news comes after a record-breaking 2015 NHL Draft in which no junior league in the world had more draft picks than the 37 USHL players selected, in addition to 10 USHL alumni.
