Peter Stratis

Peter Stratis, former Ottawa 67s, was drafted into the Canadian Hockey League in 2016 as a first rounder.  While there are a handful of players that have been drafted into the NHL from that Priority Draft, it seems as if none have actually played an NHL yet.  This draft included Barrett Hayton, Akil Thomas and...

Allan McShane

The thing I noticed most about Allan McShane was that he has a fantastic shot and some great hands.  Of course, highlight reels are meant to do just that, highlight their hockey skills.  I'll have to give credit to those who scout these players on a nightly basis and end up noticing much more than...

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,...

Ben Hawerchuk

Ben Hawerchuk is the son of Hockey Hall of Famer and current GM for the Barrie Colts Dale Hawerchuk.  I'll do my best to stay away from the comparisons in Ben's early hockey career as the game has definitely evolved and is considerably more competitive than ever.  I think it'd be pretty rare for any...

Nick Robertson

Nick Robertson, brother of Dallas forward prospect Jason Robertson, is an upcoming 2019 NHL draftee.  I did a bit of research and it looks like he's slated to go somewhere in the late 1st, early 2nd round of the NHL Draft that will be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada this year.  Let's see if he...

Jake Durham

Jake Durham has had a great season so far, hitting the 30 goal mark this early in the season.  He leads his team, the Flint Firebirds, in goals where second place Ty Dellandrea sits with 14 goals.  In the entire OHL, he's the 7th player to reach the 30 goal mark with Tye Felhaber leading the pack with...

Ryan McGregor

Ryan McGregor, a pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs from the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, is currently rolling with the Sarnia Sting of the OHL.  This year, he was awarded the captaincy for the team after been the assistant captain for the previous two years.  Rightly so, his point totals have increased each of the...

Michael DiPietro

Michael DiPietro, another player from the Vancouver organization, is featured in today's post.  As most junior hockey fans know, Michael had represented Team Canada as their starting goalie during the tournament.  Unfortunately, they lost in the Quarter Finals to the eventual gold medal winners, Finland. For Michael, he now will continue his career and try... Continue Reading →

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...

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...

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...

Isaac Ratcliffe

Signed 6'6" Flyers prospect, Isaac Ratcliffe, signed this hockey card as a member of the team he currently players for, the Guelph Storm.  He was drafted by the Storm back in 2015 and hopefully will stay with the club for the remainder of his CHL career.  A draft which featured other NHL picks such as...
