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! ...

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...

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...

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...

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 →

Jaret Anderson-Dolan

A nice autograph from Jaret Anderson-Dolan of the Spokane Chiefs.  To be honest, I didn't know much about him before the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.  I read a lot about Jaret on hockey forums which seemed to indicate he would be a late 1st round pick. It's clear that Jaret has had a lot of... Continue Reading →

Ty Lewis

Today's post brings us to Ty Lewis, currently a member of the Brandon Wheat Kings and prospect for the Colorado Avalanche.  It's expected that Ty will begin his pro career with the AHL, the Colorado Eagles starting in the 2018/19 season.  He most recently completed his junior career with the Wheat Kings, reaching the 100...

Cole Fonstad

I'm happy to be getting this card back from Cole Fonstad who was drafted in the 5th round of the 2018 Entry Draft. While it's generally accepted that the Montreal Canadiens whiffed on the 3rd selection (selecting Jesperi Kotkaniemi instead of expected Filip Zadina) based on scouting reports, Cole was expected to go anywhere between...

Nolan Volcan

Nolan Volcan has done well during his junior career, earning the "A" with the team.  He amassed 174 points in 263 WHL games. In each of his seasons with the Thunderbirds, he's been steadily increasing his point totals. Nolan is part of the Volcan bloodlines where his father, Michael, played briefly in the NHL in...

Aleksi Heponiemi

A definite future NHL player that I think will make in an impact in a few years when he cracks an NHL lineup. He was originally drafted by the Florida Panthers in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, 40th overall and looks to be a real gem. This past season, he helped the SC Broncos reach... Continue Reading →

Jayden Halbgewachs

For sure Jayden Halbgewachs is going to be a great NHL player when he makes it to the big leagues. Although he went undrafted in the NHL entry drafts he's been a participant in, he recently signed with the San Jose Sharks organization this past December. Jayden, although now 21, has put up some tremendous... Continue Reading →
