If you haven't seen the U18 NTDP and and want to get a feel for them, you can watch them here vs. Wisconsin.

I love that game. Yes, yes, it isn't the be-all-end-all for scouting guys, but it's always been fun and can bring someone to the fore who previously was unknown to the viewer. I've been to a few (Toronto at the Gardens and ACC, Kitchener, London) though not in the last few years. It's a good time.

In addition to all of the college hockey on TV tonight (North Dakota vs. NTDP, Minnesota vs. Michigan State, St. Cloud State vs. New Hampshire, Maine vs. Notre Dame, Army vs. Nebraska-Omaha), there will be WHL action on NHL Network US: Edmonton vs. Calgary.
Should be a great match up between two top teams.

Kids to watch include Curtis Lazar, Mason Geertsen, and Tristan Jarry (if he plays, he's a goalie) for the OK's.
There's not many that jump out to me right away for the Hitmen right away, but their backup Mack Shields is a sleeper candidate of mine.
There's also Jake Virtanen, a 96 that was the 1st overall pick in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.
He should be a top pick in 2014 if he puts it all together.

MacKinnon isolation footage; his Halifax teammate Drouin remains day-to-day with an UBI, believed to be a shoulder problem.

Here's some Fucale iso video too.

Drouin's injury is definitely his shoulder and he should be back relatively soon.

If you're not interested in watching Northeastern-New Hampshire or Alaska-Anchorage-North Dakota on TV tonight or a low quality stream of the Amerks game online, NHL Network US, Sportsnet, and TVA Sports will have Moncton-Blainville-Boisbriand tonight at 7PM EDT and repeated at 10PM and tomorrow at 3PM.
Here's a rundown of draft eligibles and players to watch on each team:

Marc-Olivier Roy (#11, BLB): Could be a first rounder this year, at least a second or third rounder I think. Very dangerous offensive player.

Xavier Ouellet (#16, BLB): Captain of the Armada and should be on Canada's blueline at the WJC. Detroit second rounder in 2011.

Cédric Paquette (#18, BLB): Tied for second in team scoring with the aforementioned Roy. Was drafted by Tampa Bay in the fourth round last year.

Stefan Matteau Jr. (#23, BLB): Just kidding. He's suspended. Again.

Storm Phaneuf (#27, BLB): Not sure if he'll be in net tonight because he started the last two games, but could be a second or third round pick this year. No, he's not Dion Phaneuf's brother that went to the Q.

Christopher Clapperton (#57, BLB): How this player went undrafted last year with the horrible depth of the draft confuses me. He currently leads the Armada in scoring.

Julien Bahl (#81, BLB): Someone I'll be watching closely, personally. Was a first rounder in the latest Q draft, should be on Team Québec's blueline at the U17's, and could be one of a good bunch of defenseman coming out of the province. Hopefully a sign of things to come.

Marcus Hinds (#92, BLB): Ranked by CSS, don't know if he'll get drafted.

Jonathan Racine (#3, MON): One of a few members of the Memorial Cup Shawinigan Cataractes that moved to Moncton this season. He probably won't wow you, but he's a great defensive defenseman and unless Moncton turns it around, he'll likely be moved to a contender. Was a third round draft pick of the Panthers in 2011.

Jonathan Narbonne (#15, MON): Another former Cataracte. Not really an NHL prospect, but great at the Q level and will probably be a minor leaguer.

Allain Sauliner and Alex Saulnier (#19 and #21, MON): The Sedins of the East. Fun players to watch at the Q level and I could see them becoming good minor league players.

Ivan Barbashev (#22, MON): Late 95 that was the first overall pick in the CHL Import Draft this past summer and a likely first rounder in 2014. I'm interested to see him in the Q, as the only other time I watched him this season, he got thrown out of the game on the first shift.

Dmitri Jaskin (#26, MON): Second round pick of St. Louis in 2011. The leading goal scorer for the Wildcats.

Alex Dubeau (#31, MON): Another Cataracte. I'd guess he'll be getting the start tonight. Probably not an NHL prospect though because of his size.

James Melindy (#42, MON): A third round pick of the Coyotes last year. Disappointed by his start, but he's a pest and has offensive potential.

Yannick Veilleux (#67, MON): Another Cataracte and another St. Louis pick, this time in the fourth round in 2011. Does a bit of everything.


As a side note, if you're looking for hockey to watch, I recommend the QMJHL this year.
It's cheaper than the other two leagues and was expected to be filled with potential first rounders this year, but more just cheap emerging.
It's probably getting close to double digits at this point.

Given that there's now discussion of cancelling the Winter Classic, they may be in real danger of losing the whole season. If that happens, there'd likely be a lottery just as there was in 2005 for the Crosby Sweepstakes. I got bored and calculated how many ping pong balls each team would have in the hopper, assuming the 2005 criteria again applied. There were seven boxes that could be checked: Did you make the playoffs in any of the preceding three seasons, and did you have the #1 overall pick in any of the preceding four NHL Drafts. If none of your boxes were checked, you got three ping pong balls. If only one of your boxes was checked, you got two ping pong balls. And if more than one of your boxes was checked, you got just one ping pong ball.

Here's how it'd look this time around:

Buffalo: 1 ball
Boston: 1 ball
Ottawa: 1 ball
Montreal: 1 ball
Toronto: 3 balls

NY Rangers: 1 ball
NY Islanders: 2 balls
Philadelphia: 1 ball
Pittsburgh: 1 ball
NJ Devils: 1 ball

Washington: 1 ball
Carolina: 3 balls
Florida: 2 balls
Winnipeg: 3 balls
Tampa Bay: 2 balls

Chicago: 1 ball
Detroit: 1 ball
St. Louis: 2 balls
Nashville: 1 ball
Columbus: 3 balls

Los Angeles: 1 ball
Anaheim: 2 balls
Dallas: 3 balls
San Jose: 1 ball
Phoenix: 1 ball

Vancouver: 1 ball
Edmonton: 1 ball
Calgary: 3 balls
Minnesota: 3 balls
Colorado: 2 balls

A total of 17 teams, including Buffalo, would have one entry; six teams would have two entries; and seven teams would have three entries, for a total of 50 entries. Buffalo would have a 2% chance to win that lottery.

My conspiracy theorist mind would lead me to put money on Toronto or Calgary to win that lottery.

Anyways, as you were...

Taking in Guelph-Niagara tomorrow night. Sifting through the Storm roster and some early rankings I see: Dickinson, Bertuzzi, Mitchell, Garlent and Harpur. Anthony DiFruscia and Carter Verhaeghe from the 'Dogs aren't on the CSB list but they show up elsewhere -- Brock's got good things to say about both over at his blog in particular.

Chainshot: NHL Network-United States (and Sportsnet in Canada) is televising tonights Oshawa-Guelph game starting at 7:00 pm ET. (Theres a replay on NHL Network-United States at 10:00 pm ET so you can watch the Amerks game earlier on TWCSC Buffalo.) So you can get a preview of Guelph just before you see them in person on Saturday night.

Heres a preview article on tonights Oshawa-Guelph game -

9-4 Ice Dogs. Dickinson is like a big freaking puppy out there -- you see all the skills and he's all limbs, gangly. But the skill and size combo are certainly on display.

Nhl network showing Halifax vs. Gatineau now, also replaying it at 10 for those who are interested. Been a pretty good game so far.

Agreed. I don't see him outside the top 10. Watched him play against Russia last night and he was the best forward on the ice for the WHL and every other time I've watched him play he stands out in a very significant way.

If he gets as good in real life as he does in NHL13, he should be a top 5 pick.

West Seneca's Sean Malone of the USNDTP saw his OHL rights traded from Erie to Owen Sound today. He's currently ranked 14th among USHL skaters by Central Scouting and is committed to Harvard's 2014-15 team.

Good luck trying to convince a kid and his family that Harvard's a bad idea for his future.

With the top end of this draft dominated by forwards, the question marks we have up front, and how highly I value forwards, I'd say another forward.

We have question marks everywhere, but forwards continue to be the biggest issue for me.

I'd be really into going forward/goalie in rounds 1 and 2. We definitely could use more talent up front, and a goalie prospect with projectable NHL potential would be nice.
