only 4 kids taken in the top 100 this year compared to 7 last year.. the talent pool wasn't very good this year

Ho is a fabulous defensemen, one of Americas best and Anderson is a BIG power skating forward who dominated at 18 Elite in Sweden for three months this past winter. He hits, has great hands and vision.

The California talent is exceptional in the 94 class from California as Tiger fans will like both if these kids.

tigers jumped the gun in signing there first round pick i think

The reason 8, 9, 10 and more late round picks do not have high percentages of regularly making the Tigers as your comments state us because in the past most US kids play in the USHL or NAHL on their way to college. In case you missed it the absolute best California kids are usually and ere drafted this season in rounds 8-11.

Ennis and many past US born players were drafted late or list players. California hockey this past season had five high end forwards that already play a pro style, Anderson is one of them. Ho is one of the top five dmen in North America as the Tigers drafted two kids that can be impact players should they sign. Anderson will sign if asked as his size and his playing with 18 year olds in Sweden this past season were major indicators of his plans. Ho would be smart to sign with the Tigers as well as he isa fast track candidate for the NHL with his skill set.

Both are great kids go are mature beyond their years who are very popular with their teammates and both are tough as nails.
