I think he'll have a Jeff Carter type of career. Goal scoring center, who can play a decent 2 way game.

Picked 75 points because that where he will be at in his prime. Not sure about selke but I could see him getting some looks at it down the line.

Regular 30G70PT player in 2-3 years and likely to hit a PPG in his prime.

Option 1. I think once Hodgson gets going he's going to be something special and a point a game player.

he was never considered the best prospect in the world. At his peak he was a top-5 prospect (#4-5) in the world, and that was what he was hyped at the year following his draft year. In his draft year he was considered a top-10 prospect.

His stock fell after that season (rated top-5) because of injuries.

He has however not peaked at 21. Cody is a 50 point 3rd line center right now. It's very likely his ceiling is over the 60 point mark. His icetime, roles, and linemates will only get better offensively in coming years.

I think he can be a point a game center in this league... he'll be brought along slowly in Vancouver (like pretty much every player has been), and like the others - the Sedins, Kesler, Burrows, Raymond, Hansen, etc - he won't come close to his ceiling for a few years... once the Sedins decline/retire, I see Hodgson, not Kesler, taking over as the team's #1 center. IMO Hodgson has a much higher offensive ceiling than Kesler does.

I don't get the Selke talk though... nothing in Hodgson's game tells me he'll be a top end defensive forward. I think he can be good defensively, even help the 2nd unit PK in a couple years, but I don't see Selke worthy in him at all. He doesn't have those tools that someone like Kesler does - grit, speed, size, constant energy, etc... Kesler is a 50 pt player who works his ass off to be a 70 pt guy - that's the work ethic that earned him his Selke.... Hodgson, IMO, has the talent to hit 80 pts, but doesn't have the tools, or mindset, to be a Selke consideration.

Hodgson is on pace for 50 points from the 3rd line...

IMO he'll settle into a 30-35 goal, 70-80 point 1st line centre - or a 1B with Kesler...

Hodgson is basically a clone of Joe Pavelski. Not that big, not that fast but just get it done. They both have excellent shots, see the ice well, are very consistent, work hard, known for leadership, clutch performances and can play in all 3 zones.

You would think after seeing his ridiculous progression from having his first healthy offseason in 3 years people would realize this kid was never overhyped by Canuck fans. He's the real deal. Just accept it and move on...

I think he'll at least turn into a 70 point 1st line player.

Of course Kesler and the Sedins are just lucky.

Yeah, they're just a product of the Vancouver-fan hype machine.

Didn't the Hockey News rank him as the second best prospect in the world back in 09, when he was the cover boy? Even though Filatov had higher offensive upside, plenty of scouts felt he was the best all-around young talent outside the NHL.

"Few prospects have seen their stock rise more dramatically this season than Hodgson, who has drawn comparisons to some of the game’s great two-way centers."

"Hodgson has a grasp of two-way hockey that often takes players years in the NHL to figure out. His on-ice habits are very good and he has a conscientious approach to the game that belies his young age."

"Hodgson is the kind of player who can play on the first power play and the first penalty-killing units, as well as the top line.

I think his potential upside is as a centre version of Jason Pominville (in one of his better seasons). They strike me as similar types of players - Good hockey IQs, vision, shots. Take very few penalties. Don't have great speed or size though.

Hodgson has played in every game this season, and only has 2 penalties. Skating is not his strongest point, so it is quite remarkable how few penalties he has taken compared to how many he has drawn. He is so good at stripping the puck from people. He is an incredibly smart player, and that stat just proves it. The Sedins for example take quite a few hooking penalties because of their skating.

I think he is going to be a consistent 60-70 point player, or at least I'm hoping.
