Rockets trio being watched

Lucas Johansen, Dillon Dube and Tomas Soustal named to watch list by Central Scouting for NHL draft

Three members of the Kelowna Rockets are among 49 Western Hockey League players named this week to Central Scouting’s watch list for the 2016 NHL entry draft.

Centre Dillon Dube and defenceman Lucas Johansen have been cited with a B rating, while forward Tomas Soustal is considered a C prospect.

The A rating indicates a first-round candidate, a B rating indicates a second or third-round candidate, while a  C rating points to a potential fourth, fifth, or sixth-round choice.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Dube who is currently sidelined with an injury, has 10 goals and 24 points in 16 games this season.

Johansen, a 6-foot-1 defenceman, has two goals and 12 points in 21 games, while the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Soustal has nine goals and nine assists in 21 games.
