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
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.
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.
