** Happy New Year's, guys. It's a lot of fun talking/learning about all the various prospects from posters like mapleleaf, Chewer, and all the others that post and contribute regularly. Hopefully Tigers resurfaces in 2013, as he's a great poster with a wealth of info. This has always been my favorite level of hockey, so it's great to have a board with such well informed men to let you know what's what. Have a safe and happy new years, to all of you.
Thanks Garyboy. Happy New Years Garyboy, u have great posts and knowledge/insight in minor midget and the bantam marlie classic reviews were a fantastic read. To all HF boards, happy new year.
Kirwan plays a physical brand of hockey. I wouldnt want to see him in his age group, he would truely HURT kids his own age. The weight he has and the speed he generates results in some pretty nasty hitting. Ive seen games of him this year, where 19-20 yr old Dmen completely panic when this 14-15yr old forechecks. People wont believe this kid is 15 when they see him, he is a ripped 15yr old, very wide body. He should not have the quick feet/acceleration he has with his size, but he does. He takes small, powerful strides, this skating stride reminds me of Jerry D'amigo. I believe players in the OHL will fear him in year 1, if he comes to the O. Imagine how most 14-15 yr olds would react playing in a league full of 19-20-21 yr olds? Pretty unique player.
