The Sarnia Sting have four players mentioned in the NHL Central Scouting Midterm Rankings.

Pavel Zacha (8th), Nikita Korostelev (41st) and Brandon Lindberg (153rd) all cracked the list. Defenseman Connor Schlichting was mentioned but an injury has limited the amount of viewings this year.

Ironically enough, Schlicting has returned to the line up while the other three are currently missing time due to injury.

Last year’s draft saw a pair of Sting teammates drafted in the first round. Anthony DeAngelo was selected 19th overall by Tampa Bay, and Nikolay Goldobin was selected 27th overall by San Jose.

It was the third time two Sting players were drafted in the first round of the same NHL draft.

This year’s draft is June 26-27 in Sunrise, Florida.
