LEAMINGTON, ONTARIO – The 2022-23 NHL Central Scouting Final Ranking are out and some familiar faces are still in the mix.
Once again, Leamington forwards, Connor MacPherson and Ryan MacPherson are featured on the list as the only players from the GOJHL.
Both players saw their stocks rise in the rankings, with Connor moving from 134th to 128th, while Ryan now sits at 211th where he was previously at 223rd.
“To see us both move up was great to see,” Connor shares. “It’s very exciting for our family and an honour to be on the final list. We are so grateful to the Flyers organization for all they’ve done to get us to this spot today.”
The NHL’s Central Scouting Department has been a scouting service for NHL member clubs since 1975-76.
The 2023 NHL Draft will take place in Nashville, Tennessee on June 28-29.
Connor led the Flyers in scoring in the regular season with 28 goals and 35 assists for 68 points, while Ryan posted 25 goals and 36 assists for 61 points.
They’ve upped their game in the playoffs with Ryan tallying eight goals and 25 points in 15 games, while Connor has 14 goals and 23 points in 13 games.
“It’s something we are both very proud of,” Ryan agrees. “In saying that, right now we have a bigger goal and that is to win the Sutherland Cup”.
Leamington looks to take a big step towards that goal tonight when they host the Stratford Warriors at the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre at 7:10pm.
