IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY

Who will com­pete for the 2018 Me­mo­rial Cup? No harm pro­ject­ing the field for the 100th edi­tion

REGINA PATS (HOST)

No doubt the WHL’s Pats will add tal­ent, but with Ana­heim picks Sam Steel and Josh Mahura al­ready in town, they’ve got a great head start. Jake Leschyshyn and Nick Henry will also take on meatier roles up front.

MIS­SIS­SAUGA STEEL­HEADS

Led by brothers Mikey and Ryan McLeod, the OHL’s Steel­heads will fea­ture a po­tent of­fense that also in­cludes Owen Tip­pett. Goalie Ja­cob Ing­ham and D-man Nic Hague will also star for the squad.

BLAINVILLE-BOISBRIAND AR­MADA

Should Pierre-Luc Dubois make the Colum­bus ros­ter, the Ar­mada might get passed in the QMJHL, but the team nev­er­the­less will have a great veteran crew aug­mented by kids such as Joel Teas­dale and An­toine Crete-Belzile.

KELOWNA ROCK­ETS

Calgary pick Dil­lon Dube is bound to have a big year in the WHL, and he will be ably sup­ported by Foote brothers Cal and Nolan, not to men­tion an as­sort­ment of other weapons. Lead­ing scorer Kole Lind re­turns as well.
