The Hockey News recently released their annual Future Watch edition, and Thamesville’s Dane Fox skyrocketed himself into the Vancouver Canucks’ top ten prospects.

Fox, who was signed by the Vancouver Canucks early this year, landed 6th among Vancouver Canucks prospects in the annual feature. He sits second in OHL scoring this season with 64 goals, 43 assists, and 107 points in 67 games with the Erie Otters.

The Hockey News had this to say about Fox,

“Passed over in the NHL draft, scoring at a goal-a-game clip. Smart playmaker. Good release. Discipline an issue.”

Bo Horvat, who has family roots in Bothwell, was listed as Vancouver’s top prospect, and was the 12th ranked prospect across all NHL teams. Another local hockey prospect, Kyle Hope was an invite to the Canucks main camp this year, but is still an NHL free agent.

Wallaceburg’s Seth Griffith did not appear on the Boston Bruins’ top prospects list, nor did Chatham’s Jason Missiaen appear on the New York Rangers’ list.

In recent seasons, Dresden’s TJ Brodie had been a mainstay on the Calgary Flames’ top prospects list before establishing himself as an NHL regular and mainstay on the Flames’ blueline.
