C Curtis Valk - Medicine Hat Tigers, WHL
 
He's one of the top scorers in the WHL with 60 pts so far. I'm just wondering what others think his potential is, where he'll go in the draft, etc. Any thoughts?

Hes 19 so highly doubtful he gets drafted. Possible though. I have seen him play a few times and hes a great player. Doesn't help playing with Shinkaruk either though. He had a 5 point game in November in Calgary. Anyone know if he is related to Gary Valk?

Too small, too old, I dont think there is much of a chance he gets drafted.

Pretty good player though.

I imagine he may go onto play CIS or something after his WHL career is over.

i see someone taking a a chance on him with a late pick, Maybe a 6th or 7th rounder

Related to Gary?

Seen him extensively. Widely known as being one of the shiftiest players in the league...and the Blades players actually say that he has the best hands of anyone in the WHL.

I don't think he gets drafted, though.

Seems to me like he'd be a guy that is a top scorer in Europe or the AHL and makes a living that way.

Not sure. But apparently he is related to Kelly Hrudey. (See section Medicine Hat Tigers "Did You Know" -- first column, last paragraph)

He's starting to get a lot more attention. A recent article on nhl.com http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=654212
