Nice autograph and personalized return from Dylan McIlrath.  Dylan signed my heroes and prospects card in a black sharpie and is probably one of the better signatures from junior players I’ve seen.  Dylan is a 6’5, NY Ranger draftee who played for the Warriors this season in the WHL.  He’ll most likely head over to Connecticut for some extra conditioning before he hits the big leagues!  Thanks Dylan!

Now we’re back on track!  Quinton Howden is a great NHL prospect for the Florida Panthers.  According to “Hockey’s Future”, he’s currently ranked 4th on their depth chart only behind Jonathan Huberdeau, Jacob Markstrom and Erik Gudbranson.  Not bad for a team that’s had many high draft picks over the course of … a decade?  I believe he’ll be helping Team Canada try and recapture Gold this year when playing in the World Junior Championships in Alberta.
