Bragg Creek's Dylan Holloway and Cochrane's Tyrel Bauer are both considered 2020 NHL draft candidates in the NHL Central Scouting mid-term rankings released on Monday.
Holloway is ranked #10 and is on the 'A' list as a potential first-round draft pick.
Defenceman Bauer has a 'C' rating, suggesting he is a possible candidate for the 4th/5th/6th round of the draft.
Holloway is in his freshman season with the Wisconsin Badgers of the Big Ten in the States.
The 6'1" centre was named 2019 Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) Player of the Year after leading the AJHL's Okotoks Oilers in scoring, posted 41 goals and 88 points in 53 games during the regular season en route to being named AJHL MVP. He added 13 points in 11 playoff games.
He helped Canada win bronze at the 2019 International Ice Hockey Federation U18 World Championship. In 2018, he won gold at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup and bronze at the 2018 World Junior A Challenge.
Bauer is midway through his second full season with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League (WHL).
Appearing in 64 games for the Thunderbirds last season, he had a plus 17 rating on the season.
The 6'3" defenceman was one of the last players cut from Team Canada for the 2019 Hlinka-Gretzky Cup tournament last August.
Previous to that, he played AAA minor hockey with the Airdrie Extreme, AC Avalanche, and just one season with the Airdrie Bisons before being drafted by the Thunderbirds.
The 2020 NHL Draft will take place at the Bell Centre in Montreal, QC from June 26 to 27.
