Nikita Jevpalovs will not be on many fans’ radar on June 22. That is because the young Latvian was not even ranked in the NHL scouting report until January, when he made a big splash at the IIHF World Junior Championships.

Not even 18 years old, he is one of the youngest ranked players in this year’s draft. But don’t let that fool you. His rise up the list of top-ranked European prospects for this year’s NHL Draft is the result of a quickly maturing young man. He has skill, drive and hockey sense well beyond his years — something that has not gone unnoticed by scouts.


Given his age, Jevpalovs is the best of both worlds. He has the finesse of a European skater and the tenacity of a North American. He already possesses an amazing amount of leadership ability and talent and has only just begun his development. Combine that with a humble, positive and eager outlook, Jevpalovs just may be one of the draft’s dark horses.

Intresting, so he barely made the draft cutoff ?

Maybe a Girgensons in discuise ???

I still think BLB needs a true goal scorer, but IMO I wouldn't want to run into that team in the playoffs... So much two way talent...

I think the Armada are underrated on the boards... Joel Bouchard and JF Houle know how to evaluate talent and they know what they are doing. If your an Armada fan you should have plenty of faith.

I think they will add, but they are more complete then other contenders...

QC has a bit of ego there, Duclair has a temper....


CHSB your Bathrust love clouds your vision...

CH4 I think your too high on Chicoutimi is it ? Or is that another poster ?

I've said it before and I'll say it again...

Halifax and Quebec are overrated and get too much love...

BLB and Moncton are underrated as is Gatineau... I think we'll see another year like 2010 where it's going to be tough the win, and the winner will be burnt out by Mem cup.

He seems like he should be ready for the Q indeed.

Big difference from 17 YO to 18 YO.

Ciampini, will kill the chemistry... Now i've heard everything...

Who cares about playing cocky? There's 22 cocky players on each Q team...

I'm not high at all on Chicoutimi I don't think they will be contenders. I think they will sell and finish 6-10, Chicoutimi, BC and to a certain extend Rimouski should be pretty equal.

Gatineau you overrate them they're too young to pretend to anything the addition of Steeves and Poulin should help they will make a nice battle with BB and Val d'or for the division.

Quebec and Halifax's top 6 eat blainville and Moncton alive.
defense they are pretty much all equal, no team is stellar like Shawi and SJ were this year. Guys like O'brien, Gagnon, Gagné, Brisebois, Blain could get traded and change the portrait.

contenders now IMO:

Halifax
Quebec







Moncton



BB
Bathurst
Gatineau
Val d'or

Chicoutimi
Baie Comeau
Victoriaville
Rimouski




others

Now I've heard it all.... Not every junior player is cocky.....

Your taking this too seriously...

@CH: kk I think Chicoutimi finish lower.... And IMO the contenders aren't as far apart as you'd think.

I'll elaborate later..

True. I probably just needed to cool off

But no not every junior player is cocky i'm exagerrating, but I just don't think Ciampini (if anyone) would be the one to break this team inside out chemistry wise.

I really don't see how Halifax's and Québec's top-6 eats Moncton's alive. I mean sure they are more proven and more ''sexy'' but if you consider the Saulnier twins (potential of 100 pts), the two new russians and Veilleux, that's a great top-6.

Of course, it depends on how Barbashev and Jaskin performs, but to say they're eaten alive by Halifax's and Québec's I think is being out to lunch.

It probably won't be Ciampini... According to those who've played with Drouin, the first year on a team he's quiet and obedient, but year 2 he's been known to take charge, and throw his jersey in the trash when things go wrong.. And apparently Stef Fournier has a big ego.... LSL kids are known for being primadonnas...

Injuries to Tanguy, Aquin and Plouffe as well as Lebel's suspension means BLB's lineup could be to start the year...

Clapperton - Paquette - Roy
Hodhod - Giroux - Matteau
Cusson - Lavoie - Jevpalovs
Grandmaison - Martel - Strong

MacKenzie (while Paquette is in Tampa Bay)
Robillard (while Matteau is in New Jersey)

Ouellet - Picard
Berube - Richer
Hoyles - Bahl

Gauthier (while Ouellet is in Detroit)

Marcoux
Phaneuf

Whiffen (while Marcoux is in Philadelphia)

Of course surprises could still happen in camp !!!

Well the reason they pushed the season back is to be like the O and Dub, and let players return from NHL rookie camps. The only one who won't be there would maybe be ouellet or Matteau.

I popped in today to watch the 2nd intra squad game. I thought Sanche, for a smaller player, did very well. Paquette was skating very well too...impressive.
Jevpalovs looked sluggish.

I heard Strong is a big kid....perfect name Haven't seen him though.

How are you ? Long time no speak.

Thoughts of Cusson ?

What time are the Intra Squad scrimmages at ?

I may head on down, nothing beats a day in Blainville-Boisbriand..

I was away on vacation. Back just in time for hockey camps ;-)

I haven't seen Cusson play but overheard a couple speaking saying that he is doing well. Seems that he and Hodhod have some chemistry.

Games today are 4:30 and 6:30.

Testolina, Foresta (Laval Midget AAA) are 2 invites that looked good last night too.

Foresta seems to be pretty small...

Wasn't able to make it. Where ate the Lions holding their camp this year ? There's no ice in Dollard.

Their 2014 1st says so.


Big move by JB, taking a top D off the market, strengthening a strong core and adding offence.

The Armada just made the league even more Intresting...


Also the Armada have made a trade with Sherbrooke.

Notable first years at camp ?

Notable returnees ?

Thoughts on the goalies ?
