Welcome to our weekly update on CHL prospects. Here are the leading scorers among all 3 leagues for the 2020 draft eligibles & 16 yr old CHL rookies. ***Re-entries are not including***

We took a bit of a break for the holidays with so many players away from their teams for various reasons. That being said, the WJC is over now so all the draft prospects will be back with their teams shortly. Some players who weren’t invited took this opportunity to climb up the leaderboard. Here’s the updated scoring races from each league now:

OHL

As anticipated, Marco Rossi has taken over the OHL scoring lead. That includes ALL OHL players too now just draft eligibles. He had played several less games than Quinton Byfield thanks to a suspension earlier in the year, but with Byfield away at the WJC that gap has closed while Rossi has blown open the points race. 

Speaking of the World Junior Classic, there are two new additions to this leaderboard that were announced during the WJC, and their potential impact on their respective OHL teams could be enormous. 

The Kingston Frontenacs announced last week that their Top import pick Martin Chromiak would join them immediately. Well, he has and has already had a positive impact registering 2 points in 3 games. 

Also, the Hamilton Bulldogs officially signed Jan Mysak following the Czech’s exit from the tournament. Mysak, is a popular 1st round pick in this upcoming draft with sleeper potential. Now that he gets to play with the likes of Arthur Kaliyev in Hamilton, he has an opportunity to enhance his draft stock even further this June.

QMJHL

Alexis Lafreniere still has the most points by any draft eligible but Marco Rossi has closed the gap to 1 point overall and has played 3 less games. Regardless, Lafreniere is coming off a terrific WJC tournament where he was the best player.

Meanwhile, his Canadian teammate Dawson Mercer has now been officially traded to Chicoutimi after much speculation. He will be joining fellow draftee Hendrix Lapierre and current Oiler prospect Raphael Lavoie who was also traded. 

Theo Rochette moves too from Chicoutimi to Quebec.
