Nashville Predators prospects Ryan Ellis and Taylor Beck were named to the OHL All-Star 2nd team today before tonight's Game 2 of the OHL Finals between Ellis' Windsor Spitfires and the Barrie Colts. Ellis is considered the 7th best prospect in the organization, and finished the year with 48 games played, 12 goals, 49 assists, and a +39. Beck, considered the Predators' 11th best prospect, led the Guelph Storm with 61 games played, 39 goals, 54 assists, and a +19 rating.
From the Ontario Hockey League:
The Wayne Gretzky Trophy winners the Windsor Spitfires along with the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors are each represented three times. Taylor Hall was named a first team left winger for the second straight season, with Ryan Ellis named to the second team at defence, and Greg Nemisz appears on the third team at right wing. Ellis was named to the first team last year, and Nemisz was a second team all-star last season. For the Majors, the OHL's Goaltender of the Year Chris Carrozzi was named to the first team, with defenceman Cameron Gaunce named to the second team for the second straight season. Head Coach Dave Cameron is also on the second team.
In case you missed Dirk's interview with Taylor Beck earlier in the year, be sure to give that a read. Sounds like we may have a goal scorer on our hands.
