It would be great if he could play on a line with, and develop some chemistry with, Yannick Veilleux.

The 'Cats also have an American-born center, a kid named Brandon Shea, who played 45 games with Moncton last year (3 G, 7 A, 22 PM), and has a June 1995 birthdate, which means he'll be eligible for the draft next summer.

Shea has good size at 6' 2, 200 pounds, and won just under half of his faceoffs last year (217 out of 452)... Just thinking out loud, if Moncton puts him between Veilleux and Jaskin, and the three really take off as a line, you might be looking at a potential 2013 draft pick for the Blues here...
Brandon Shea is either A) leaving the Q to go to the USHL in Dubuque or B) is demanding a trade to another team.

He was a hot topic last summer after giving up a spot on the NTDP 17's to go to Moncton. Like most young players lured to major junior, he was completely misled by the coaching staff and wasn't given nearly the responsibility or ice time that he was told he would get. Gave up a scholarship to BC in the process.

He left the team and toured Dubuque's facilities in mid-March. I'm not sure where things stand now but he's not going back to Moncton.

Anyway, back to Blues prospects....
