Berg is big, has great hands and is smart both around the net and in the classroom (89% average). Team BC Coach Neil Dinsdale believes that Berg is the best offensive high school player in Canada and others share Dinsdale's conviction.

2. Warren Hill – Goalie – Six Nations/Hill Academy – uncommitted – Warren Hill is the best high school goalie in the class of 2011. Hill is a superb shot stopper and has the stick skills to throw sharp outlet passes. Hill almost certainly will be the starting goalie for Team Iroquois at the upcoming World U19 Championships.

3. Reilly O'Connor – Attack – Oshawa/Hill Academy – committed to Georgetown – O'Connor is tall, quick and has a couple of great signature moves at the net. O'Connor also possesses great judgment around the net and knows when to pass and when to shoot.

4. Reegan Comeault – Attack – Maple Ridge – committed to Ohio State – While small in stature, Comeault scores in big numbers and has a very quick release. Comeault was a top scorer for Team BC at the U19 Nationals this past September including two goals and an assist in the championship game. Burnaby Mountain Coach Brent Hoskins believes Comeault's extraordinary field vision makes him a superb play maker.

5. Patrick Corbett – Midfield – Burlington/Hill Academy – uncommitted – Corbett gets rave reviews from his coaches at the Hill Academy who rate him as one of the best middies to ever pass through their school. Corbett wins faceฉoffs, scores frequently and has a strong defensive game. Corbett also possesses superb fitness and endurance.
