Eric Lindros

Eric Lindros came into the league, shrouded with controversy as he went first overall in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft.  Unless your'e absolutely sure of your abilities, it's probably not a great idea as a junior hockey player to blacklist a team that's bringing you into the NHL.  Fortunately for the Nordiques, it actually worked...

Jason Willms

Jason Willms, currently an undrafted prospect, plays for the Barrie Colts in the OHL.  I'm unsure if any NHL teams are looking at adding Jason to their prospect pool but he seems to be increasing his production year over year the last couple of years.  I wouldn't be surprised if Jason finished with career highs...

MacKenzie Entwistle

MacKenzie Entwistle currently is competing with Team Canada in the World Juniors.  He's a top prospect (as seen in the autographed card) and is showing no signs of slowing down.  During the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, he was selected by the Arizona Coyotes in the third round.  It's possible that MacKenzie is only one of...

Torey Krug

Torey Krug was an undrafted prospect as he entered into his rookie season with the Boston Bruins.  He signed an entry level contract by current Oilers GM, Peter Chiarelli on March 25, 2012.  I'd say this was an outstanding signing by Peter as Torey has been consistent with his play ever since he's remained with...

Yaroslav Alexeyev

Yaroslav Alexeyev might be a little known Russian prospect currently playing for the Baie-Comeau Drakkar in the QMJHL.  Of course, those in the Q may already know him well but outside of those who are fans of the team, I'm guessing it's not likely.  Obviously, it's hard to know every single player in the league, especially...

Calen Addison

Calen Addison was a 2nd overall pick in the WHL Bantam Draft, selected by the Lethbridge Hurricanes.  He went just behind New Jersey draft pick and 1st overall pick, Ty Smith.  With Calen, he was also selected into the NHL this past Entry Draft, selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2nd round. This season,... Continue Reading →

Al MacInnis

Al MacInnis is currently a member of the St.Louis Blues, a team in which he played for during his Hall of Fame career.  He had one of the hardest slapshots during his time in the NHL, clocking in at over 100 mph.  The hardest shot competition, usually played at the All-Star game, was won by...

Jonathan Toews

Jonathan Toews really doesn't need any introduction.  He's the famed Chicago Blackhawks captain that has won at literally every stage he's played in.  Olympic Gold medals, multiple Stanley Cups and World Juniors dominance.  He'll likely go down as one of the greatest players to have played the game. Of course, this season has been less... Continue Reading →

Nick Henry

It's actually coincidental that Nick Henry is the next post as both he and previous entry, Jake Leschyshyn, were traded together to the Lethbridge Hurricanes.  Now that I'm looking at the impact that Nick had on the Regina Pats (ranked 1st in team scoring), it's amazing that Lethbridge pulled off this trade.  I'm guessing that Regina...

Jake Leschyshyn

For those of you old enough, you may remember Curtis, father of Jake Leschyshyn.  Curtis played in the NHL and amassed over 1,000 games.  Let's hope that Jake will follow suit and (hopefully) put up better numbers than his dad.  I'd fully expect Jake to surpass Curtis' .21 PPG, considering that Curtis was a defenseman! ...

Arnaud Durandeau

Halifax Mooseheads are lucky to have a player like Arnaud Durandeau, as he's about to set himself in a career year in goals, assists and points.  About a third of the way through the season, he's ranked fourth on the team in scoring and is seven goals way from his career high.  This should turn...
