Omaha Lancers Top NHL Prospects
It's been just over one month since hockey left our lives. One month sitting around waiting when the next time we'll see teams take the ice. If you're like me, it feels like it's been a lifetime. If you've been playing a lot of NHL 20 to pass the time, here are three Omaha Lancers prospects you should keep your eye on for your NHL franchise, and for the NHL 2020 Draft.
Ranked #185 in the latest and final NHL Central Scouting Report, the 5'11" center is projected to don a New York Rangers hat on draft night. According to draftsite.com, their latest mock draft has Berg being selected 203 in round 7. However, that is a very conservative position for Cameron to be selected. He's ranked as high as #115 on the North American Skaters list and was ranked as a "C" skater meaning he's projected to be taken between rounds four through six. Depending on what teams are looking for on draft night, the left-handed center will wait at least two rounds to hear his name called on draft night.
The 6'4" net minder had a solid season with the Lancers. He began the year with the Topeka Pilots but finished the final 21 games with the Lancers. His total save percentage on the year was .919% and allowed 2.34 goals per game. He's listed as a "C" skater and it appears he's going to be selected by the Philadelphia Flyers with the 180th pick according to numerous mock drafts. He's ranked 20th for all goaltenders in this year's draft.
Coming out of St. Louis, Missouri, Chase is ranked as the #214 skater on the NHL Central Scouting Report. Also listed as a "C" skater, Chase is being targeted by the Wild, Rangers, and Hurricanes with the early 200 picks. Known more for his bruiser mentality the past season, Chase notched seven goals and 12 assists but racked up 77 penalty minutes. While he may never be a starter on an NHL roster, he'll make his impact known one way or another.
