Xavier Bourgault is a winger with great upside as a scorer and playmaker and seems to have the shot and the vision to make an impact at the next level. His skating and defense represent some question marks, though, making him a common sight for any team in the market for scoring talent beyond the top of the first round.

Francesco Pinelli of the Kitchener Rangers had a great rookie season in 2019-20. With the OHL staying inactive, Pinelli got a loan abroad to Slovenia before returning to win Gold for Canada at the World Under-18 Championships. Learn more about this two-way center prospect with this profile.
