Lucas Chiodo

I think this one got lost in the shuffle of my list of players to write about but that's definitely not a knock on Lucas Chiodo.  Standing at 5'6, he's gotta be one of the shorter players playing the CHL.  While I do think the NHL is heading towards a more accepting stance on shorter,...

Drafted by the Barrie Colts in the 2nd round, Nathan did well considering it was his rookie season.... Continue Reading →

Sorry for the lack of updates guys, I've been busy with other obligations, but will try and make my best effort to blog a bit more. I got this Mark Scheifele autograph, pictured with the Barrie Colts, last year, and I was super excited as this was the Jets' first round pick and first since... Continue Reading →
