NAHL Showcase/Midget Showcase '90 Birthdates

Eric Ringel, Defenseman, Mahoning Valley Phantoms-It’s amazing how much he has developed from 12 months ago, where he was one of the youngest players in this tournament. This year, he looked like the best defenseman in the league. He’s always been great on the powerplay, but this year, he’s getting time on the penalty kill too, and his defense was pretty solid.

Chris Heineman, Defenseman, Traverse City North Stars-In his second year in the NAHL, and looks like he’ll be a top player. Very good all-around defenseman.

Kellen Michalak, Forward, Traverse City North Stars-Talented player. He probably needs another year to get a little stronger before colleges really start looking at him, but he is a definite college prospect.

Ryan Misiak, Forward, Little Caesar’s-A hard worker that uses his size very well. A nice grinder with a little bit of skill.

Bob Marx, Defenseman, Russell Stover U18(Alaska commit)-Does everything pretty well, but doesn’t really stand out in one area.

Colin South, Forward, Pittsburgh Hornets U18-Wasn’t playing, which is a shame because I think he could be an NHL draft pick this year. I though I heard he was injured? Not sure.
