Michael Forney

I havent heard much about him lately and was hoping I could get an update from the ATL board.

What do you think of his NHL potential at this point?

Sorry brother. I haven't seen him to give you an honest opinion. I could go all Leafs fan on you and tell you he's the best EVAR but I don't think you'd like that. Try the NCAA board. There are a couple Sioux down there that may be able to help.

He'll be 21 in a few months and he's playing in the USHL. Knowing little more than that, I'd say his NHL potential is not good.

Very unlikely to make the NHL.

Forney has battled with injuries throughout his college/junior career.

http://www.pointstreak.com/stats/pro...&seasonid=3192

He should've played a year or two of juniors before moving on to the NCAA; but from he tells me he wants to go back to UND after this season and see how he goes from there.

By the way.. he's 20 not 21

I've heard in various places that he's coming back to UND next season. Hope that's the case because I don't think he got a real shot to show what he can do at the college level with his injuries. I'm keeping my ears open -- I go to school at UND and sometimes I hear stuff.

Talent Analysis

Forney is a decent skater, but his strength is in his stick-handling and playmaking ability. He needs to add some size to his frame and improve his explosiveness. Has a knack for finding his way to the front of the net.

Injuries have been a concern.
Future

After two years at the University of North Dakota, he got so little playing time, there's a concern that he has stalled out. Forney is heading to the USHL for 2008-09 to get some playing time. After that, he may rejoin another college program. His NHL potential is very low at this point.

I don't think he'll even make the NHL... (source http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospects/michael_forney)
