No less than 10 Canadians are ranked on the latest, up-to-datest Perfect Game top 500 high schoolers in North America.
It is by no means a lead-pipe, buy-a-new car cinch that all 10 will be selected where ranked, but it is certainly a strong indicator since Perfect Game does such an excellent job. Of course between now and June’s draft week -- only three months away -- a lot can happen. Players improve or regress, there are injuries and some players with good schools ask for singing bonuses that scouts decide not to pay.
The top 10 Canuck high schoolers ... according to Perfect Game Scouting and whether they have moved up or down the list.
