Sixth Round Pick: Canucks Select Joe Cannata

Quote:
Cannata is a goaltender that plays with loads of confidence and is tremendously calm and focused under pressure. He isn’t one to get rattled easily. Cannata possesses good athleticism and is technically very sound. He is intelligent and follows plays quite well. Cannata also possesses very good hand-eye coordination for a goaltender. He does a good job of playing his angles well and staying square to shooters, but could be a bit more aggressive in challenging them.

Sounds like he's better than Clarke at least.

Won Bronze at the U18s and seems to be a pretty stocky goaltender. Is Merimack College a high school, or actually part of the NCAA?

To be fair though, I'm better than Clarke.

2006-07: Playing for Boston College High School, Cannata played in 18 games, going 16-1-1 with a goals against average of 1.01 and a save percentage of .968%. He was named as the Boston College Most Valuable Player, and was named to the Boston Globe Catholic Conference All-Star roster, the Patriot Ledger All-Scholastic Team, and the Boston Herald Dream Team.

2007-08: Cannata joined the US NTDP and appeared in 31 games, compiling a 16-14-3 record with a goals against average of 2.56 and a save percentage of .899%. Cannata played in two of the four games at the 2008 U-18 Five Nations tournament, a tournament won by Team USA. Cannata went 2-0 with a 2.67 goals against average there. According to NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings, Cannata is the 13th overall ranked North American goalie according to NHL Central Scouting.

2008-09: Cannata was named Merrimack’s Defensive Player of the Year after appearing in 23 games and posting a 7-11-4 record that included two shutouts. Despite a sub-.500 record, Cannata posted outstanding numbers in goals against average (2.35) and save percentage (.918), both of which ranked in the top 25 nationally.
Doesn't sound too shabby, especially for a 6th rounder.

Nobody from the Canadian Junior A ranks. All players from Europe or the NCAA, or going the NCAA route. Interesting.

Could also be a few of these guys who end up in the WJC tournament this year...anyone know how Cannata stacks up against other junior eligible US goaltenders?

A .918 SV% on a bad team as a freshman is damn impressive. To put that in context, Schneider put up a .916 in his freshman year.

His numbers were comparable to Kieran Millan who is a year older and was picked by Colorado early in the fifth round.

One has to wonder if all the NCAA players have anything to do with the two year limit on signing CHL players?

Some quotes...

Quote:
“He is a big-time goalie,” Merrimack coach Mark Dennehy said of Cannata. “Having been lucky enough to coach and recruit David Stathos at Princeton University and Jon Quick at UMass . . . I feel Joe Cannata has the potential to be an NHL player.”
Quote:
“Joe wound up leading BC High to the state championship when they probably weren’t as good as they were the year before. Then he went to the U.S. National Development program where he competed against two other top guys.

“So he doesn’t get rattled,” Dennehy added. “He took a risk at Merrimack and we think he’s a player who can take us where we want to go.”
I think I like this pick.

I thought we had a 7th, with the conditional being a higher pick if Sharrow played more than 10 games with Chicago?

I think getting the pick was conditional on him playing in the NHL at all, and the pick would become more valuable based on how many games he played. He played 0 games, hahaha.

Just to be safe, somebody want to dig out a media guide and check for any Canuck employees named 'Cannata'?

They're in the NCAA, dear. They play in Hockey East - the same conference that Boston College, Boston University, Maine and New Hampshire play in.

In answer to your other question about how Joe stacks up against the other US WJC eligible goalies, he stacks up quite well. The sad thing is Team USA didn't invite him to their upcoming evaluation camp either. IMO, they might be kicking themselves for that especially if they don't medal and/or the goalies that are chosen end up struggling.

People who haven't seen Joe play are likely to say that he isn't a good goalie based solely on his W-T-L record and his Merrimack team, who aren't exactly a powerhouse like BC or BU. But Joe singled-handedly won a few games for Merrimack this season. One of the games that I saw, which was against Army very early in the season, the Black Knights clearly outplayed the Warriors, but Joe stood on his head and made something like 40 saves to preserve a 1-0 shutout win for his team. He was also a big reason why Merrimack's overall defensive numbers were better than the previous year as well.

Thanks very much for this! Good to know information on both the school and the player, thanks very much. Hopefully if Cannata has a strong start to the season, he could be considered for the USA WJC squad.

Wow, I hadn't realized the level of competition Merrimack faced. A .918 SV% on a crappy team in a tough division is certainly promising.
