Three Sea Dogs Among NHL Central Scouting's 'Players to Watch'
NHL Central Scouting has released their 2020-21 Preliminary Players to Watch List and it includes a trio of Sea Dogs forwards. The list ranks draft eligible players into four categories: A Rating (indicates a 1st round candidate), B Rating (indicates a 2nd/3rd round candidate), C Rating (indicates a 4th/5th/6th round candidate), and Limited Viewing for injured players who have not had sufficient viewings to be categorized.
Peter Reynolds and Joshua Roy received B Ratings indicating 2nd/3rd round candidates. Roy finished last season with 44 points in 60 games with Saint John and represented Canada as part of the Under-17 World Hockey Challenge alongside Reynolds. This season, Roy leads the Sea Dogs with four goals and six points. Peter Reynolds is playing in his first QMJHL season after suiting up for the Chilliwack Chiefs of the BCHL last season to preserve his NCAA eligibility. It was announced this summer that Reynolds had forgone his NCAA eligibility to sign with the Sea Dogs. He has two goals and two assists in six games this season.
Also entering his first QMJHL season as a 17-year-old is Cam MacDonald who played last year with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the USHL. MacDonald, like Reynolds, also decommitted from an NCAA school this summer to sign with the Sea Dogs. MacDonald led the Sea Dogs in goals this pre-season and has one point in five games to start the regular season. He received a C Rating, indicating a 4th/5th/6th round candidate in the NHL Draft.
