Connor McDavid is out in front of Jack Eichel in NHL Central Scoutings 2015 mid-season prospect rankings. While the two players are the consensus top two prospects for the 2015 Draft according to most rankings, the NHLs list has the Erie Otters centre in the No. 1 spot at the seasons halfway point. McDavid returned to action during the 2015 World Junior Championship after breaking his hand in mid-November. He won a gold medal with Team Canada at the tournament and has scored five goals and four assists in four games since returning to Erie on Jan. 8. Eichel, who captained the U.S. World Junior team that finished fifth at the tournament, has 34 points in 20 games this season with Boston University. Rounding out the top five North American skaters are Boston College blueliner Noah Hanifin, Kingston Frontenacs winger Lawson Crouse and McDavids Erie teammate Dylan Strome. The top international skater is Swedish blueliner Oliver Kylington, who missed the World Juniors due to injury. European skaters playing in the Canadian Hockey League help make up the Top 15 on the North American skaters list, including Pavel Zacha (Sarnia) and Jakub Zboril (Saint John), as well as Russian defender Ivan Provorov who plays for the Brandon Wheat Kings. Barries Mackenzie Blackwood and Magnitogorsk 2s Ilya Samsonov were named the top North American and International goalies, respectively. Also notable in the goalie rankings is the fourth-ranked international goalie, Denis Godla. The Slovakian netminder made headlines as a fan favourite at the World Juniors as the tournaments best goaltender and Most Valuable Player. Read the Top 30 list for the North American and International skaters below, along with the Top 10 North American and International goaltenders.

Custom Baseball Jerseys Outlet . Mohamed Diame put West Ham ahead in the 47th minute before goals by substitutes Carlton Cole and Joe Cole condemned Fulham to a fifth straight defeat, keeping the visitors in the bottom three.SANTA CLARA, Calif. - San Francisco defensive co-ordinator Vic Fangio expects outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks to return to the 49ers starting lineup Sunday at Seattle after his benching last week for missing a team meeting.Yeah, I think he will, provided he keeps practicing like he did yesterday, Fangio said Thursday.Brooks had started 60 straight games under fourth-year coach Jim Harbaugh before sitting out a 24-13 loss at Oakland. Brooks said after the game he inadvertently missed a morning defensive meeting Dec. 2 but showed up an hour later for a second meeting focused on domestic violence. Fangio said Thursday that Brooks also arrived 20 minutes late to a Dec. 3 meeting, and the coach didnt know why.Brooks apologized to Fangio and had a strong practice Wednesday.We talked on Tuesday. Hes fine, Fangio said of Brooks. Had a good day at practice yesterday and expect him to be fine.The team moved its workout indoors Thursday to a nearby facility because of a major storm hitting Northern California with heavy rain and strong winds.Wide receiver Michael Crabtree downplayed the venue change, even though bad weather rarely interferes with the schedule in the Bay Area. The coaches were planning more of a mental preparation day given the conditions.A lot of teams practice indoors, Crabtree said.For Brooks, last week wasnt his first infraction of the season, leading to the coaches decision to sit him. Harbaugh said he was in a backup role against the Raiders and Brooks thought he would play in some capacity.Brooks was benched Nov. 16 for the second half of a 16-10 road win against the Giants for heated words he directed at defensive line coach Jim Tomsula in the second quarter.Brooks was frustrated with his playing time on a day linebacker Aldon Smith returned for his season debut following a nine-game suspension. The outside linebacker apologized to Tomsula and said they have moved forward.It was difficult to do, but it was an easy decision. He missed an entire meeting on Tuesday and then was 20 minutes late on Wednesday, so, at that point, and on top of what happened in New York, it was just time to nnot start him and take drastic measures, Fangio said.dddddddddddd Told him he wouldnt start on Wednesday. He knew that. And last week was not a good week of practice for him after that happened, so, thats when I basically decided that he wouldnt play very much unless we needed him.The ninth-year pro has 27 tackles, five sacks and a forced fumble for the 49ers (7-6).Brooks said he doesnt know what his future might hold with the 49ers, who might opt to cut him given the depth at linebacker and the emergence of talented young players such as Chris Borland and Aaron Lynch. In February 2012, Brooks signed a six-year contract extension through the 2017 season.Brooks return could add a key dimension to a pass rush that was nonexistent Sunday against Raiders rookie Derek Carr, who faced little pressure and had ample time to find open receivers downfield.Its going to be needed. I think we have the guys to do it, Harbaugh said. Look forward to a better performance in that area.Seattles Russell Wilson is among the best scrambling quarterbacks in the NFL.The only other guy that scrambles as well as this guy in the last 10, 15, 20 years, may be (Jets QB) Michael Vick, Fangio said. Vick was quicker to go. This guy is quicker to keep looking downfield, looking for the throw, seeing if you broke down in coverage because of the length of the play.On the offensive side this weekend, San Francisco is likely to use its third different centre. Rookie Marcus Martin is nursing a right knee injury that kept him out Wednesday and limited his work Thursday. He replaced the injured Daniel Kilgore in October after Kilgores fractured left ankle required surgery. Joe Looney is the leading candidate to step in at centre.NOTES: RT Anthony Davis, who has missed the last three games with a concussion, participated in a limited role for the second straight day. Getting there, he said. Frustratings not the word. Its been rough. ... Kicker Phil Dawson and punter Andy Lee got their extra practice in Wednesday since they were unable to kick indoors Thursday.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Buffalo Sabres Gear Wholesale Calgary Flames Jerseys Cheap Adidas Colorado Avalanche Jerseys Montreal Canadiens Outlet Store Wholesale New Jersey Devils Jerseys Adidas Arizona Coyotes Jerseys Cheap Adidas Boston Bruins Jerseys Cheap Adidas Carolina Hurricanes Jerseys Chicago Blackhawks Shop Free Shipping Wholesale Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys Dallas Stars Shop Free Shipping Cheap Adidas Detroit Red Wings Jerseys Anaheim Ducks Jerseys China Wholesale Edmonton Oilers Jerseys Florida Panthers Shop Free Shipping Wholesale Los Angeles Kings Jerseys Minnesota Wild Outlet Store Cheap Adidas Nashville Predators Jerseys Cheap Adidas New York Islanders Jerseys New York Rangers Winter Classic Jerseys Cheap Adidas Ottawa Senators Jerseys Cheap Adidas Philadelphia Flyers Jerseys Wholesale Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys Cheap Adidas San Jose Sharks Jerseys St. Louis Blues Winter Classic Jerseys Wholesale Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys Toronto Maple Leafs Outlet Store Vancouver Canucks Outlet Store Cheap Adidas Vegas Golden Knights Jerseys Cheap Adidas Washington Capitals Jerseys Cheap Adidas Winnipeg Jets Jerseys ' ' '
