Central Scouting Ranks Drury, Moe

January 22, 2018 - United States Hockey League (USHL) - Waterloo Black Hawks News Release

Rankings on File for Drury, Moe

Pro Scouts Deliver Midseason Prospect List

Waterloo, Iowa- Waterloo Black Hawk forward Jack Drury and goaltender Jared Moe were confirmed Monday as strong prospects for the 2018 National Hockey League Draft in the annual midterm ranking of draft-eligible players by NHL Central Scouting.

Drury was listed at #60 among North American skaters who could be chosen by NHL teams in June. On a separate list of goaltenders playing in the United States and Canada, Moe checked in at #9. At the conclusion of most junior hockey league regular seasons in April, Central Scouting will provide a final evaluation of the players it is tracking.

Before the current United States Hockey League season began, Drury was being scrutinized by scouts while representing the country at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup Tournament in August, and then he appeared in USA Hockey's All-American Prospects Game during September. He also skated in the highly-scouted World Junior A Challenge last month and participated in the USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game two weeks ago.

Drury's second season in Waterloo has been a marvelous boost for the Black Hawks. He currently ranks first on the team in points (31), second in goals (tied, 10), and second in plus/minus margin (+8). His three shorthanded goals are the most in the USHL. The Harvard recruit also owns the league's longest point streak of 2017/18, reeling off 15 consecutive games with at least one goal or assist.

Moe has been among the USHL's top goalies since debuting with a 30-save, 2-0 shutout victory versus the Dubuque Fighting Saints on October 13th. In 16 appearances, Moe is 11-5-0 with two shutouts, a 2.01 goals-against average, and a 92.3% save percentage. The latter two metrics rank third and fourth in the league respectively. During the fall, Moe announced his college commitment to the University of Minnesota for the 2019/20 academic year and hockey season.

In November, Central Scouting graded Drury as a "B" prospect and Moe as a "C." At the time, those marks indicated that Drury was projected as a second or third round pick. Moe's category suggested a fourth to sixth round window. Monday's list charted 217 North American skaters with separate rankings for goalies and international players.

Drury, Moe, and the Hawks meet the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders at Young Arena on Saturday.
