FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Hockey players from Greenwich, Darien and Ridgefield were among the players listed last week when the NHL's Central Scouting Bureau released its midterm ranking of 2015 draft candidates from North America.
Johnny McDermott of Darien, McKay Flanagan of Ridgefield and William Somers of Greenwich are among the players who made the list. All three boys are members of private school hockey teams.
They were among the players featured in a MaxPreps’ article on standouts in the New England Prep School Athletic Council teams who drew interest from NHL scouts.
McDermott, a center, plays for Westminster School in Simsbury. He had the highest ranking among the three Fairfield County players, at No. 106. McDermott is committed to play in college at Boston University. A former student at King in Stamford, McDermott had 31 goals and 36 assists in 50 games last year with the Connecticut Oilers.
