Yea it's nice to have a prospect like Mark in the system. Last season he was sent back to juniors with some clear direction on what to work on. Fast forward 12 months and those opportunities to get better have been dealt with nicely. This is one of the by products of drafting a high character player IMHO. Nice to have a no maintenance date as one of our top prospects.
Scheifele now has 14 points over his last seven games, including 9 goals over that span.
Call the cops, that d-man wuz ROBBED!
Scheifele's on quite the tear - his PPG keeps climbing. He really seems to be getting more and more comfortable out there: it's really looking like he's ready for the next level of competition (WJC, AHL, NHL), and certainly will be at the end of this year. Thankfully, the AHL is an option for him next year, if he doesn't stick with the Jets. I have a feeling though that he's not going to let the NHL opportunity pass by him.
AHL: Arctic Ice Hockey: St. John's IceCaps Our first prospect tracker is currently being written but until then we do have Ryan Fancey who regularly posts updates as a St. John's STH. I'll add it once the AHL writeup is done
Oh, almost forgot. Unrelated to prospects, AIH has a contest with an actual tangible reward. I'm unsure of the HFBoard rules so I'll just say either PM me or just go to AIH to find out about it if you're interested.
