KENNEWICK, WA -  NHL Central Scouting has released its preliminary list of players to watch in 2015, and Tri-City Americans Brandon Carlo, Parker Wotherspoon and Brendan O'Reilly have made the list. 

Carlo is rated as an ‘A' prospect, which means he is a potential first round draft pick candidate. The Colorado Springs, CO native is in his second season with the Americans, and has four points in two games, ranking him tied for third in the league in points. He played in 71 games in his rookie year, scoring three goals and 13 points.

Wotherspoon garnered a ‘B' rating, which means he is projected as a second or third round draft pick. The defenseman from Surrey, B.C., is in his second season with the Americans, and has a goal and an assist in two games this season. In his rookie season, Wotherspoon played in 62 games, recording 16 assists and 18 points.

O'Reilly is a rookie defenseman for the Americans this season. The native of Southlake, TX, received a ‘C' rating, which means he is a projected fourth to sixth round selection. He played for the Dallas Stars U-16 team last season, recording eight goals and 30 points while playing in 41 games.

Tri-City will wrap up a three-game home stand this Friday, Sept. 26, against the Seattle Thunderbirds at 7:05 p.m. at the Toyota Center.
