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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Noah Dobson

Noah Dobson was one of a few highly touted NHL prospects heading into the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.  From what I recall, most had him Top 10 so when he fell to the New York Islanders, it was a steal for him to be nabbed at the 12th spot.  Of course, the Islanders had two... Continue Reading →

Willie Mitchell

Willie Mitchell has to be one of my favourite hockey players to have suited up for the Vancouver Canucks.  While he's long gone from the game, I'll always remember how he just seemed to scream leadership whenever he took the ice.  He was cool, calm and collected when defending the other teams' top players.  Of...

Ivan Lodnia

Ivan Lodnia, who goes by the nickname of "Vanya", was acquired by the Niagra IceDogs this past CHL offseason in exchange for Danial Singer, and a conditional 5th round pick in 2019 (from Kingston).  He had done well with the Erie Otters, scoring 116 points in 2 seasons.  This season, he's scored 16 points in 15...

Parker Kelly

Parker Kelly has been outstanding so far for the Prince Albert Raiders' of the Western Hockey League.  He's currently sitting top 5 in scoring on the team with 13 points in the 15 games he's played.  Recently he earned a spot in the teams' record books as Justin Nachbaur, Ozzy Wiesblatt and Parker Kelly all scored...

Kyle Jessiman

It's been a while since I've showcased a non-NHL goaltender!  Kyle Jessiman is currently a member of the Baie-Comeau Drakkar having been recently traded during the offseason.  He played two solid seasons for the Screaming Eagles where he played roughly 40 games a season. At this point in his career, I don't believe he's been... Continue Reading →

Sasha Mutala

Sasha Mutala plays on a fairly strong Tri-City Americans' team this year.  While they're currently sitting a bit below 15th overall in the WHL, they did make it to the Quarterfinals last year.  To be fair, it looks like a handful of their top players (ie. Morgan Geekie and Michael Rasmussen) have flown the coop... Continue Reading →

Chris Tanev

Chris Tanev is one of the most underrated defensemen in the NHL.  He's currently the veteran defenseman on the team at the age of 28.  While the Canucks not expected to make the playoffs this year, he and Alex Edler are doing their best to make that happen. Prior to the start of Chris' career,... Continue Reading →
