Does this put us at 50 contracts now?

Interesting, given the trade talk. What's his scouting report? High ceiling prospect?

Rick

Well, he's undrafted so he probably falls somewhere between you and St. Louis.

Slide risk. He's in the CHL.

He's having a great year, but I'm not an expert on Barrie. I'm going to go send a few emails and get some info. If anyone else knows a lot about him, have at it.

Scouting report from: http://ohlprospects.blogspot.com/200...-for-2009.html

3. Luke Pither - Belleville Bulls
Pither has always been one of those guys who's got a ton of talent, but for whatever reason just was never able to put it all together. There were questions regarding his work ethic and his willingness to play in traffic and this lead to his exit from a vastly defensively oriented Guelph Storm team at the trade deadline. In Belleville, Pither absolutely exploded, being able to use the large ice to explore his offensive creativity and to give him more room to get into scoring lanes. He finished the season with 42 points in 23 games with Belleville. That's nearly as good as John Tavares' point per game average and stretched over a full season at that rate, Pither would have lead the OHL in scoring by a rather significant margin. He has an NHL caliber shot which he needs very little time to get off. He skates well and he loves to lead the charge into the offensive zone. He still has some flaws, like his willingness to become involved defensively and physically, but you can't teach his natural offensive abilities. Again, I'd be surprised if he isn't taken at least with a late round draft pick, especially since it's his last year of eligibility as an 89.


Interesting signing, then.

Regards,
Rick

Hmmm if that scouting report is true at all he might be a nice guy to move to the wing of some defensive players.

Hmm... interesting signing.

He's big, fast, a bit dirty, and can score.

Barrie is absolutely stacked, and will give Windsor a good run for the championship.

Pither lit it up his first game in Belleville, and his first game in Barrie. I haven't seen a lot of Barrie since his first game with them, but I hear he's playing well.

Low risk signing, why not? Looks like he's finally putting it together and should be an addition to a bare prospect pool. Also gives me someone else to follow in Juniors.

Scored a natural hat trick this past weekend.

http://www.barrieadvance.com/barriea...article/156590

Quote:
BARRIE - With straight three wins in the past five days, and six victories in a row, the Barrie Colts have improved their record to 51-8-0-2, clinching the championship in their division.

On Saturday night, Luke Pither scored a natural hat trick in leading the team to a 6-1 victory over the Niagara IceDogs. Other goal scorers were Kyle Clifford with a pair and Alex Hutchings.

With 104 points they are one point away from setting a franchise record. The 51 wins are a record for the Colts in their 15-year history.

Thursday night, they downed the London Knights 5-3 in a wild and woolly affair that saw seven game misconducts handed out, including a two game suspension to star defenseman Alex Pietrangelo.

Friday night, the team travelled south and thumped the Oshawa Generals 9-2, the third time this season the Colts have dented the twines nine times in a game.

Leading scorers over the three game stretch included Luke Pither with three goals and five assists, Alex Hutchings with three goals and three assists, Nick Crawford with six assists and Kyle Clifford with four goals and one assist.
