The NHL players might be locked out, but we're peering into the future with the arrival of the NHL Central Scouting's watch list, identifying players to keep an eye on for the 2013 Draft.

Again, New England skaters abound on the list, with high schoolers to collegians with local roots making the grade on the bureau's initial scouting list.

Capping an already excellent week, St. John's Prep senior center Brian Pinho -- who just committed to Providence -- is the lone MIAA skater making the list this year.

Also from the local ponds, former Malden Catholic standout Ryan Fitzgerald, who will play with the EJHL's Valley Junior Warriors along with fellow watch lister Devin Tringale (Lawrence Academy), and Phillips Andover's Eddie Ellis made strong initial marks as each earned a B-grade. Former Billerica standout Ross Olsson, who will skate with the Lincoln Stars of the United State Hockey League this year, also was given a B-grade.

Here's how the locals broke down:
