McColgan I'm afraid of his size. Being small in Canadian juniors is OK. But not always at the pro level.

St. Croix has a lot of talent. But unsure how he will do away from the puck at the pro level or if his production from juniors will translate.

I agree its a while off yet for Nieves and Skjei but these two are really good. The size, skill, and smarts and skating that translate to pro hockey. Being young even for the NCAA they are playing against mostly older more mature competition. NCAA is a young adult league whereas CHL is a teenage league. Not as much a knock on the CHL as it is a compliment to players who can perform as freshmen in the NCAA.

I like their trajectory.
Fair points on McColgan and St.Croix. Let's hope Hrivik makes it back this season.
