Round of 128: "Best NA Pro Prospect" - 16. Cody Eakin vs. 113. Riku Helenius
HFBoards as a whole has a tendency to overrate prospects not playing North American Pro Hockey because they haven't been exposed yet. So I'm doing a 128-player tournament of players that have only played North American Pro Hockey.
QUALIFICATIONS: Minimum of 50 AHL + NHL games played (20 AHL + NHL games played for Gs); Maximum of 100 NHL games played (30 NHL games played for Gs); 26 years old or younger by 12/31/12; Signed to play in North America next season; Can't have played more than 50 NHL games in 11/12 NHL season, injured players exempt (ie. Mike Sauer, Jacob Josefson, etc.)
Disclaimer: This is based on my own subjective rankings. So if you don't like them, too bad - the best will win in the end. If I overlooked someone: too late the bracket is already made. Made a total list of ~200 but pared it down to 128.
16. Cody Eakin (DAL)
113. Riku Helenius (TB)
And wow, Helenius has a NHL record of 1-0 with a 1.000 sv pct and 0.00 GAA. I'm guessing he was an emergency call up for a game?
