Fargo Force (USHL) 1997 forward Odeen Tufto had six points in his last three games with a goal and five assists. He has points in seven of his last eight games with three of the games being the multi point variety. In 28 games played he has 21 points (5 goals and 16 assists). He is fourth on the team in scoring and was one the Force's best forwards in the month of December. He is another forward that is coming into Hamden in the fall of 2017 who should be expected to contribute.

Topeka RoadRunners (NAHL) 1998 forward John DeRoche had a four assist weekend in three games played against Wichita Falls. The Lynnfield, Massachusetts native has been averaging over a point per game since moving to the NAHL after a trade by Cedar Rapids of the USHL. In 14 games played with Topeka he has 15 points (4 goals and 11 assists). I have him projected as a freshman for the 2018-2019 season.

1999 forward Corey Clifton is off to a good start for his high school team, Christian Brothers Academy. In ten games played he has five goals and five assists which is good for second on the team in scoring. He is also playing for the U18 North Jersey Avalanche in the Tier I elite hockey league. He is someone I have pegged for the 2019-2020 season which gives him two additional seasons of development in the junior ranks.
2002 forward Jacob Quillan has a nine game point streak for the Steele Subaru Major Midgets as he picked up two more assists to close out 2016. In 25 games played he has 19 points (6 goals and 13 assists) which is impressive for a player who is the youngest player on the teams roster.
