The 2016 NHL Central Scouting midterm rankings have been released and two Everett Silvertips have made their list: Goaltender Carter Hart and forward Patrick Bajkov.

Hart, currently in his second season with Everett, is ranked as the number one North American Goaltender. Through 42 games this season Hart has a record of 27-12-1-2 while posting a 1.88 GAA and 0.929 SAV% while adding six shutouts, all of which lead the league. Although Hart is ranked first, it's not certain that he will be taken in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft. There has not been a goaltender drafted in the first round since 2012.

Bajkov, currently in his third season with Everett, is ranked 71st for North American skaters. Through 44 games this season, Bajkov has 10 goals and 20 assists for 30 points. Bajkov's rating projects him to be drafted in between the fourth and sixth rounds.
