CSS Releases Midterm Rankings

Tyrel Seaman was #50 among NA skaters in the
NHL CSS Midterm rankings
The NHL Central Scouting Service released its midterm rankings for the 2012 draft today.

Two members of the Brandon Wheat Kings were included on the list, with Tyrel Seaman ranking 50th among North American skaters while Alessio Bertaggia was ranked 122nd.

Seaman has missed 13 of the last 14 games because of concussions but the 6-foot-2, 196 pound centre has six goals and 17 points in 28 games this season.

Bertaggia is ranked among the North Americans because he is playing in the CHL this season and the 5-foot-7 1/2, 160 pound Swiss import has 18 goals and 36 points in 37 games this season.

Curiously, Brandon goaltender Corbin Boes was not among the 36 North American goaltenders ranked by the CSS after being ranked #5 among WHL netminders in November's preliminary rankings.

As far as other WHLers are concerned, Everett's Ryan Murray was #3, Moose Jaw's Morgan Rielly was #5, Mathew Dumba of Red Deer was #7, Griffin Reinhart of Edmonton was #8 and Portland's Derrick Pouliot was #10.

The top-rated WHL forward was Kelowna's Colton Sissons at #14 while the top WHL goaltender was Saskatoon's Andrey Makarov at #8.
