Rank: 58 58 72 116 95 41 NAS
Scouting Report
International Scouting Services: "A physically imposing player on the ice at 6.05 and 220 lbs. Although his offensive output will never be very high, he certainly has the tools to become a steady defender that understands his limitations and plays to his strengths. Helgeson displayed good fighting technique(s). He does need to work on developing his lower body strength, which whould aid his balance along the boards with checks against smaller forwards and improve his skate stride etc. Minnesota, University of 2009-10.(Verbal)

Rank: 50 50 47 64 75 19 ES
Scouting Report
International Scouting Services: "Lander is a two-way checking forward with excellent outside speed. He can make plays at full speed and controls the puck with a lot of confidence. A very unselfish player, Lander is always aware of where his teammates are and makes good crisp passes. He is a hard working forechecker, keeping his feet moving all the time. With a strong quick release wrist shot, he often uses d-men as a screen off the offensive rush. Lander drives the net hard with and without the puck and doesn’t quit on the puck until the whistle goes. Reliable and disciplined, he brings a consistent effort to the rink every game and always improves his team’s chances of winning a game. Will adapt and play any role given by coach."

Rank: - 78 60 58 77 45 NAS
Scouting Report
NHL Central Scouting’s Chris Edwards: "Michael has shown good playmaking ability and he sees the ice well. He moves the puck well."
Guelph Storm head coach Jason Brooks: "He brings an element to our team that we don't currently have. We have guys who play with an edge and we have guys that can create chances and score goals for us, but Latta is both at the same time and we needed that. That's what makes him such a special player, that edge he possesses. If he doesn't play with an edge, he's not as effective . . . He'll do whatever it takes for the team to win -- blocking shots, winning faceoffs, killing penalties. He'll do the dirty things. He'll battle two guys for the puck and come out with it. He's a battler, and with his skill level, it makes him a great player."

Rank: 66 66 59 47 29 56 NAS
Scouting Report
International Scouting Services: "An agile two-way skater, Ryan is another US forward who just keeps his feet moving all the time. Ryan has very good puck control at full speed. He can be a bit selfish with the puck at times. A hard forechecker, Ryan gets back and helps out D in own zone. Plays his size and physical style very well. Good solid footwork and agility. Ryan is a very good skater with speed which he uses along with good anticipation to break to open ice. He plays very hard and intense and makes good decisions with the puck. Worked well in the d-zone by blocking a few key shots and doing a fine job of covering his point. Has verbal to Boston College."

Scouting Report
NHL Central Scouting's Al Jensen: "He's steadily improved over the course of the year. I really like the way he presents himself in the net. His net coverage is very good. His work ethic was excellent. He's got an air of confidence about him I really like. I see in him what you need at the pro level -- you need to be strong and confident in yourself. He doesn't let goals bother him, doesn't let pressure get to him."
Owen Sound head coach Mark Reed: "Scott's strengths are his positioning and his ability to stop the initial shot. When he's on his game, his ability to control his rebounds is pretty good, which avoids second and third opportunities. For the most part he's pretty calm in the net and his teammates have a lot of confidence in him."

International Scouting Services: "This solid two-way d-man has proven to scouts that he is the real deal and will be a highly sought after commodity come draft day. A player that earned his draft position as the year went on. He is smart and reliable d-man who keeps his game very simple and effective. He controls the gap in the neutral zone very well. A good puck-moving d-man who was also one of the best defensively, Wrenn can slow things down and control the play as well. Will be a leader on any team he plays on."
