Niagara @ London was on the NHL Network last night. I caught most of it.
I noticed good vision from Strome but other than that he didn't really do anything to make me notice him more so than anyone else. Obviously his body of work so far this year has been impressive.
The line of Thereot-Strome-Ricthie was by far the best line for Niagara.
One player who I thought was very good was Niagara defensman Jesse Graham. Set up a beauty goal with a nice rush. I was impressed so much that I went online to see if he had been drafted and I saw that we (NYI) took him last year. I'll re-iterate I thought he was the best player on the ice last night for Niagara. This is my opinion as a casual observer of junior league hockey so take it for what it's worth.
Two impressive dmen of London: Olli Maata (PIT 1st round '12) and Scott Harrington (PIT 2nd round '11). Pretty effective of shutting down the Strome line for the most part, despite Ricthie's two goals.
Also, watch out for London forward Bo Hovart (#36 of Craig Button's 2013 draft list). Was a bottle of energy on the ice, constantly making things happen.
