Chicago Steel Top Prospects


With the remainder of the USHL season canceled, we’ll take a look at the top prospects around the league over the coming weeks. This week we’ll start with four of the top prospects from the Chicago Steel.

Sam Colangelo – Forward

The 6’2″ forward from Stoneham, MA was a leader for the Steel this season. Through 44 games, Sam totaled 58 points (28 goals, 30 assists) and had a +/- of +32…that’s impressive. On the NHL Central Scouting Report, he’s a B skater and is ranked #63 by Future Considerations. He’ll be playing for the Northeastern Huskies next year and leave a sizeable void in the Steel’s roster.

Luke Reid – Defense

The 6′ forward from Geneva, IL is a special talent. After a huge jump from his 2017-18 season, Luke has been impressing scouts and climbing everyone’s draft boards. Currently ranked #83 by Future Considerations, he also comes in with a B rating on the NHL Central Scouting Report. After a stellar season, Luke should make an impact with his new team, the University of New Hampshire Wildcats.

Brendan Brisson – Forward

Brisson, a left-handed center, is rated as a C skater and ranked as high as 17 for NHL prospects. Number 17 by, 19 by, and 79 by Future Considerations. After totaling 102 points with Shattuck St. Mary’s Midget Prep and the Green Bay Gamblers, he still tallied 59 points in a shortened USHL season. He’ll play for the University of Michigan next season.

Sean Farrell – Forward

The last Steel prospect we’ll take a look at is Sean Farrell. Just because Sean is a little shorter than other players on this list, 5’9″, he was still able to put up stellar numbers. Notching 15 goals and 41 assists to total 56 points in the short-season helped skyrocket his draft stock. McKeen’s Hockey has him at 28, 32 by Future Considerations, and 45 by Elite Prospects for the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. He’ll play for Harvard next season.

The Steel’s roster is loaded with talent, these are just the top four most noteworthy Chicago Steel prospects. Each guy would have loved to finish the regular season strong as they had already clinched a first-round bye in the playoffs, but it just wasn’t in the cards.
