NHL Central Scouting ranked the top 25 skaters and top goaltenders for the Ontario Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Western Hockey League and United States Hockey League, which has included the United States Under-18 National Team Developmental Program the past three seasons. The international rankings for eight countries were also released, as was a "watch" list for those prospects starring in college. Headlining the list of GDI trained netminders that were listed within the Western Hockey League was:
  • Chris Driedger from the Calgary Hitmen (Ranked 2nd)
  • Mackenzie Skapski from the Kootenay Ice (Ranked 4th)
  • Corbin Boes from the Brandon Wheat Kings (Ranked 5th)
  • Cole Holowenko from the Prince Albert Raiders (Ranked 6th)
