Sounds pretty freakin' extreme to talk about a 3rd round pick who has yet to play a game in the NHL having HOF potential.

As a GM I pick the guy without the brain injury, but let's not make an argument out of it. All I meant is that it's better if his injury went undisclosed due to embarrassment rather than severity, not that that's likely.

Probably a guy that could use three seasons in major junior after being drafted to reclaim that lost development time. He's got a high potential, if he gets healthy he will do well.

Damn man. This is heart breaking for me. I love this guy and really was hoping burke was going to get him.

You guys have a great guy in your hands, he still has untapped potential and is a character player. Think Mike richards lite from the games I have seen atleast. Love him, even though Im going to learn to hate him

Congrats on picking up Maidens! This guy was a first round talent 100% before the concussion. He was terrific in Owen Sound as a 16 year old (his OHL winning goal speaks for itself), and he was taking the next step this season when his year was derailed. The concussion was really serious, and as far as I know he still hasn't skated (he spent the second half of the year at home away from the team), but lately the interviews and whatnot out of Owen Sound's paper have been encouraging. The team really missed him with everything he brought to the team and if it weren't for guys like Joseph Blandisi (COL) stepping up and Halmo (NYI) playing out of his mind the team might have missed the playoffs. The power play really suffered without him.

He's the ideal future 2nd/3rd line centre. He's got an offensive element to his game that's sometimes flashy, but he backs it up by being solid at both ends of the ice. He's well built physically and would have otherwise been seen as somebody closer to Zemgus Girgensons in the draft than at 82 overall.

I'd say that his ideal upside would be a flashier version of Mike Fisher, even if he's not as good defensively. Just the solidness in his game and the role he's likely to play at the pro level reminds me a lot of Fisher.

Hopefully his health continues to improve, because should he be healthy and given the proper time (I'd say 3-4 years), he'll be an NHL player.

Thanks for the report

Hows his hockey sense?

His hockey sense seems pretty good, nothing outstanding or anything, but he showed some nice playmaking abilities early in the season. He has moments of greatness offensively but building consistency in that department is what he was working on at the OHL level and something that'll be a focus for him this coming season. At the OHL level he's very much like a Jordan Staal type in terms of offence, as the skills are there and you see them once in a while but still needing to put it all together.

Defensively he just makes good choices and really bought into the team system as an underager, which is why he played on the second line the whole season for the championship squad. This year with hopefully good health and an increased role he should come to anchor the penalty killing unit, so I'll be able to get a better feel for how he fits into that role at the pro level (never played it as an underager due to numbers and seniority and not enough sample size last season).

Hopefully that helps paint a picture of what he can do. Much like Joey Hishon, he's another wonderful Owen Sound player, just needs to get healthy to have a legitimate NHL shot in some capacity.

I like this kind of gamble. It has paid of for the Sens with Cowen, Stone, and Vermette. Even if it doesn't in this case, it's a good strategy.

In the Citizen an article said they though Maiden may be cleared before development camp, but after not playing for so long, it would need to be baby steps.

They said he feels fine but the doctors said he wouldn't be ready, I'm guessing this was at the combine though...
He'll probably show up and skate on his own or with some of the sens on their off-season workout program like Puempel last year

My gut feeling is that Jarrod Maidens will be the steal of the draft that everyone remembers 5 or more years down the road. As well as top 6 skills this is a character guy that every team needs to go from contender to winner. He's listed in the development camp roster so I'm hoping even if he doesn't show that he'll be cleared for the start of the season. I predict he'll rip it up in the OHL and make the Sens out of training camp in 2013.

Glad to see him skating again and ready to play, but one more serious hit to the head is probably going to end his career. I truly hope it doesn't come to that, but it's something I think we should all be cognizant about.

Jarrod Maidens is listed on the rookie roster released by the team on Aug 22. It's still on their website too. I expect him to play.

Maidens also has a 'real' uniform number --# 21. So the Sens must think he's got what it takes, at least in the not-too-distant future.
