You would be hard pressed to find a more mature junior hockey player who has had a nightmare junior career. The once top ranked draft pick went un-drafted twice after a fatal car accident. Bell was than traded from the Regina Pats to the Kelowna Rockets where he was moved from defence to forward. Following the move he led the Rockets in scoring with 38 goals and has not looked back since. He recorded 77 points in 69 games with the Rockets this season and has 4 points in 4 playoff games with the Rockets.

The New Jersey Devils drafted Myles Bell in the 6th round of the 2013 draft, taking a chance on the kid. The Devils believe he has changed and his offencive ability is worth the gamble. He’s been battling injury through the Rockets playoff run, but might have a chance to battle for the Memorial Cup with fellow prospect Damon Severson. Bell has a wicked slapshot that has been clocked at 98mph, combine that with his skating and Myles Bell has quickly become one of the best wingers in the WHL.
