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...

Ryan McLeod

Ryan McLeod, drafted 40th overall in 2018 to the Edmonton Oilers, has been a solid leader for the Mississauga Steelheads.  At 19 years of age, he's one of the older players on the team, with three other 1998 born players being the eldest, including captain Cole Carter.  He's done well so far, tallying 26 points...

Ty Smith

It's nice to get a few highly touted returns like Ty Smith of the Spokane Chiefs.  Ty was drafted in 2018 by the New Jersey Devils in which was a very heavy defense oriented first round draft.  Fourteen defensemen were drafted in 2018's 1st round compared to nine in 2017 and 2016.  Obviously one of...

Curtis Douglas

Curtis Douglas, pictured here in a Barrie Colts' uniform, is now with the Windsor Spitfires.  He was originally drafted into the CHL by the Barrie Colts in the fourth round.  This very same draft saw Ryan Merkley go first overall to the Guelph Storm.  If I were a betting man, I'd guess that Curtis ranks among...

Chris Bourque

For those who haven't already made the connection, Chris Bourque is the son of HHOF legend, Ray Bourque.  Obviously, it must be difficult to live up to your dad's status in the hockey world but you gotta give props to Chris for trying.  If it's his passion, he's gotta do the best he can to...

Jake McGrath

It's definitely a different year for Jake McGrath and the Sudbury Wolves.  Last year was definitely not kind for the OHL team where they had 17 wins last season, finishing last in the league.  This season, they've already reached 13 wins in 23 games and likely finishing in a playoff spot if they continue with...

Vladislav Kotkov

Vladislav Kotkov is a signed San Jose Sharks prospect, currently playing in the QMJHL with the Chicoutimi Saguenéens.  When you watch him (live or highlights), you'll notice he's a head above many of his teammates.  Standing at 6'4, he's the second tallest and currently the heaviest on his team.  That's not all he's currently leading the...

David Noel

From one captain in the WHL to another in the QMJHL, David Noel is the featured player in today's post.  David, as mentioned previously, is the current captain of Val-d'Or in his third season in the CHL.  He was originally drafted by the Chicoutimi Saguenéensin the second round of the QMJHL Entry Draft.  That draft saw... Continue Reading →

Jordy Bellerive

Jordy Bellerive is currently the captain of the Lethbridge Hurricanes and prospect of the Pittsburgh Penguins.  He's entering his second season as the captain of the Hurricanes although the "A' on his jersey indicates otherwise because I wasn't able to find any records of him being the assistant.  If there is a fan of the...

Tomas Tatar

Hailing from Ilava, Czechoslovakia, Tomas Tatar was a good pick up for the Detroit Red Wings.  He represented the team for almost 5 full NHL season where he was able to achieve a career high in points during the 2014/15 season.  The two seasons after hitting 56 points, Tomas had just under 50 points both...
