Top 60 NHL Draft College Prospects 

#40   Alex Kile

By the numbers:

Left Wing……6-0 195 pounds…committed to Michigan

Hometown:  Troy, MI        Birthdate: 07/09/94

11-12    Green Bay (USHL)   58GM  17G   17A  34PTS    20PIM

Draftability:

NHL Central Scouting final ranking #168– North American skaters

Kile’s precipitous fall from #82 in the mid-term rankings to #168 in the final rankings belies his consistent performance throughout the season and into the playoffs.  We’re betting that the qualities that garnered that mid-term ranking will be valued come draft day.

CHP Take:

Kile is almost certain to serve one more year of apprenticeship in the USHL before making his way to Ann Arbor.  A team looking for a consistent power forward who posted good numbers through the playoffs will be happy to stow away Kile at Michigan as he further develops his skills.
