McTavish, Guryev and Zanetti Named to Central Scouting Players to Watch List
(Peterborough, ON) - The NHL Central Scouting Service has released its annual preliminary players to watch list ahead of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft. Petes forward Mason McTavish and defencemen Artem Guryev and Brian Zanetti were named to the list.
McTavish, a 6'0", 198 lbs centre, earned an 'A' rating on the players to watch list, suggesting that he could be a possible first round pick in next year's draft. McTavish was selected fifth overall by the Petes in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection Draft. In his rookie season, he registered 42 points in 57 games and was invited to Team Canada's National Men's U-18 Camp.
The Pembroke, Ontario native finished second in 2019-20 OHL rookie scoring behind only Shane Wright. Several prospect rankings list McTavish as a potential top-5 pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, which would make him the first Petes player since Zach Bogosian (3rd overall, 2008) to be selected that high. Only 12 other CHL players received an 'A' rating."
Guryev, a 6'3", 207 lbs defenceman, earned a 'C' rating on the players to watch list, indicating he could be a possible fourth to sixth round pick in the 2021 draft. The Petes selected Guryev 22nd overall in the 2019 Priority Selection Draft. He split his 2019-20 season between the Jr. A Lindsay Muskies and the Petes.
Zanetti, a 6'2", 172 lbs defenceman who committed to the Petes in July, also earned a 'C' rating on the players to watch list, suggesting that he could be a possible fourth to sixth round pick as well. The Swiss player was selected by the Petes in the 2020 CHL Import Draft, 35th overall.
Peterborough Petes Season Ticket Members and Return to Play Flex Pack holders will receive priority access to tickets to attend games this season. All ticket packages can be purchased by emailing the Petes or by calling the Petes Office at 705-743-3681.
