33 QMJHLers on NHL Central Scouting November Players to Watch list

On Thursday, the National Hockey League Central Scouting’s list was released and it contains players to watch ahead of the 2019 NHL Draft, held in Vancouver, B.-C. at the end of next June.

In total, it’s 33 QMJHL players who garnered the attention of the scouting experts.
