Four members of the WHL's Kelowna Rockets have been listed by Central Scouting in its midterm rankings of North American players eligible for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Defenceman Madison Bowey is the highest ranked Rockets player, sitting at No. 22 while fellow D Mitchell Wheaton is ranked 63rd.

The team's leading scorer, Myles Bell, has been ranked at No. 87 while goalie Jackson Whistle is ranked 26th among North American goaltenders.

A second-year player, Bowey has nine goals, 11 assists and a plus-27 rating while Wheaton, a rookie, is plus-9, with nine points.

Bell, 19, is the Rockets leading scorer this season with 27 goals, 33 assists and 60 points in 43 games. Bell was eligible for last year's draft as an 18-year-old.

Whistle has been solid as a back-up in his first season in Kelowna, posting a 9-2-1-0 record with a 2.10 goals against average and .922 save percentage.

The Rockets are back in action on Friday when they visit the Spokane Chiefs.
