Just curious, for those of you who have seen players go from youth hockey to D1 stars (and possibly NHLers), when did you start noticing they were going to be something special?

Squirts is when they show they are truly different, which is why you see PWAA teams versus Squirt AA teams. That being said, I am not sure we are far away from that.

That being said, you can tell early on certain kids have “it” but the difference is their work within themselves, coach-ability and of course parent commitment to feed that.
