Mark Scheifele

Mark Scheifele is the assistant captain for the Winnipeg Jets and one of the core pieces of the team.  It'll be hard to imagine Mark being apart of any other team now that the Jets are doing so well in the NHL.  He was drafted into the NHL in 2011, seventh overall, in a time... Continue Reading →

Carter Hart

Carter Hart is absolutely on a tear with the Philadelphia Flyers this year.  At the time of this writing, he had just finished winning his seventh straight game, most recently against the Vancouver Canucks.  I think it's pretty safe to say that the play of Carter, as of late, has caught the attention of the...

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...

Russ Courtnall

It's been a while since I've featured a retired player considering most of my mail outs are for CHL players or at least current NHL players.  Luckily, I've watched Russ play for the Vancouver Canucks in 1995 / 96 where he scored 65 points for the team.  That team featured Canucks such as Alexander Mogilney,...

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...

Lane Zablocki

Lane Zablocki was literally traded about a month ago to the Vernon Vipers of the BCHL from the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL.  I can't find any actual evidence on how the trade occurred because it seems like there were no players headed back.  I'm sure the experience that Lane has had in the WHL...

Will Warm

If you try and google up "Will Warm", you might be hard pressed to find the Edmonton Oil Kings' player, Will Warm.  Not to say that Will isn't important, it's just that we just passed December and articles about the weather warming up is starting to take effect.  I suppose it just happens to be...

Ethan Bear

Ethan Bear, currently part of the Edmonton Oilers organization, drafted in the 5th round in 2015.  Of course, everyone recalls that being the "Connor McDavid Sweepstakes" draft but I still think that Ethan Bear has a decent shot of making the jump.  While he hasn't been given a real opportunity at the NHL level for...

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,... Continue Reading →

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...

Matthew Grouchy

Matthew Grouchy, which I can only assume his nickname was "The Grouch" at some point in his life, is currently playing for the Quebec Remparts.  At 19 years of age, he's been passed over once at the NHL Entry Draft and is likely hoping to have more teams express interest in him in the upcoming... Continue Reading →

Jake Muzzin

Let's all agree that CHL is great but finally I'm able to write about an active NHL player!  Formerly a member of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, Jake Muzzin has made a name for himself in the NHL.  He played for the Soo between 2006 - 2010, where he was named as the team captain... Continue Reading →
