Surrey Eagles’ blue-liner catches eye of NHL scouts

In the NHL Central Scouting's mid-term report, Devon Toews is ranked 181st among draft-eligible North American skaters.

Surrey Eagles blue-liner Devon Toews was one of seven B.C. Hockey League players listed among the top North American skaters when NHL Central Scouting released its midterm report earlier this month.

Toews, a 17-year-old Abbotsford native, is ranked 181st on the list, which includes junior and college players in Canada and the U.S. who are eligible for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Toews has 20 points in 38 games this season – his first in the BCHL.

Toews committed to NCAA Div. 1 Quinnipiac University earlier this season.

Tops among BCHL players listed in the report is Prince George Spruce Kings forward Jujhar Khaira, a Cloverdale Minor Hockey alum who has 55 points this season, his second with the Spruce Kings. He is ranked 80th overall.

Also on the list: Coquitlam Express centre Alexander Kerfoot (81st), Salmon Arm Silverbacks’ Morgan Zulinick (104th), Merritt Centennials’ defenceman, and Surrey native, Reece Willcox (114th), Prince George’s Paul De Jersey (203rd) and Wade Murphy (204th), who was traded last week from Victoria to Penticton.
