At 6 foot four, 195 pounds out of Saskatoon, Canada, the 2011 Canadian Hockey League Goalie of the Year and WHL player of the year, Darcy 'The Camper' Kuemper!

Compliments to TZM for the Kuemper's nickname.

I've only ever seen it written that way, but his quoted dictionary entry seems to indicate either spelling works.

On the eve of the year 2010, however, the spelling amok seems to have won. A web search gives amuck 694,000 hits; amok garners 4,350,000.

court of public opinion.

i'm boss,

edit: and so is Seeler!!!!!!

Sad but not entirely true.

NHL in December is possible.

Just a matter of what year

Better a shortened season than no season.

Please people, it's Kuemper and it's not even close, he probably should be higher then this considering he's got as good a chance as Gustavsson and Hackett as being our future #1, and the success he's had at every level so far is nothing but encouraging.

Personally, I'm not convinced by Seeler. Still very raw and has long ways to go.

I would rather choose Draeger, Gilmour or Gunnarsson.

And those guys prospects aren't several years off themselves? Ya, I'll take the guy who's a year ahead of his development and has higher end tools to work with. (For the record, I like Draeger quite a bit and he would have been my next player off the board after Seeler. Which coincidentally would have been about 5-6 slots ago...)

He wasn't all that great in the USHL. Unless/until he shows something under Dean Blais and Neb-Omaha, I don't see why he's considered much of a prospect at all. Compared to Kuemper - there is no comparison.
