The PDL Players to Watch list includes players named to and considered for the six 2016 PDL Top Prospects lists throughout the summer. More than 20 scouts across North America provided the PDL with valuable insight on players who were performing at the highest level within the league, possessed strong technical and tactical qualities and had the potential to play at the professional level. The Top Prospects list serves as a useful resource for professional clubs who are interested in identifying and scouting high-level performers.
