Dennis Cholowski continues to remain on the radar of scouts ahead of this June’s NHL entry draft.

The Langley hockey player is ranked 48th among North American skaters (forwards and defencemen) according to NHL Central Scouting’s 2016 midterm rankings.

The list was released on Tuesday (Jan. 19) and Cholowski is third among BCHL players.

Cholowski is a six-foot-one, 165-pound defenceman for the Chilliwack Chiefs.

The soon-to-be 18-year-old has five goals and 24 points in 32 games this season. He is committed to St. Cloud State for next season and is also set to play in the CJHL’s Prospects Game next week (Jan. 26) at South Surrey Arena. The game is for the top 40 junior A hockey players from across Canada.

Altogether, 389 hockey players from around the world are on the rankings list (those playing outside of North America are on a separate list) and 210 players will be selected at the NHL draft which is set for June 24-25 at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo.
