Guys coming out of nowhere

I'm searching for guys like Cory Conacher last year that come up big out of the big pack of prospects (doesn't care if drafted or not).

As example: Dmitry Korobov (AHL leader in +/-) from Syracuse

As Tampa fan I also might include Ondrej Palat and Adam Wilcox who start to gain some attention.

How about David Desharnais, undrafted center who was always shunned and rejected by the mere thought of getting an NHL role because of his short 5'7 body then bam, gets a shot at 35 years old and gets 83 points in 130 games. Move aside Martin St-Louis

Tim Stapleton. 4th line scrub on the Jets, undrafted, 30 years old currently. Jets let him go this past summer.

Currently tied for 7th in goals in the KHL with some scrub named Kovalchuk. He was up around 3rd for a while.

It's not every day you find a potential #1C that is undrafted.

Marek Hrvik. Started off pretty slowly, but has done well since mid November or so.

For prospects, Tanner Pearson and JC Lipon came out of nowhere.

For overagers, both look like they're the real deal.

Anyways, this thread is basically going to be a list of late round picks and FA signings. They're not as rare as people may think.

I disagree with both TBH. Pearson might find some sort of success but Lipon is kind of a odd tweener type player.

Silfverberg went from an average 3rd line prospect, 34 points and -12 in the SEL to dominating the SEL(season MVP, player of the year, record amount of playoff goals, MVP of the playoffs) and dominating the AHL. Improving just about every aspect of his game.

I could see Mark Arcobello potentially getting a shot somewhere. He's right around a PPG this year, despite playing in the bottom 6 for a large portion of the season so far. Probably more like Locke than Desharnais, but you never know

This guy sounds interesting, I' ve never heard of him.

I don't look at NHLer, I'm searching for guys that are unknown outside their organizations but play very well or haven't sign with any team yet. I think Mathieu Brisbois could be such a guy as he wasn't known before this season but plays very well so far. Will be interesting to follow if he gets a pro contract

I'm quite optimistic about him, too. But he hasn't played a game in NA yet.

Adam Wilcox is getting a lot of praise in NCAA

Quote:
He came into the game seventh in the nation in goals against average and drew endless praise from Fox Sports commentators, who called Wilcox a “star” and “one of the top goalies in the country.” Noted Minnesota hockey journalist Michael Russo called him “the real deal.”

"Potential", is Getzlaf a #1C? Compare their numbers last year.

For Dallas prospects, it has to be Jamie Oleksiak on D and Reilly Smith for the forwards. Both AHL rookies.

Oleksiak is a lot closer to NHL ready than we previously thought, and he's contributing offensively more than I even thought he would. Smith started off slow but is on fire as of late. Has 14 points (8-6) in 13 games this December.

14th overall pick who played on the Canadian World Junior team last year has totally come out of nowhere in the AHL this year, basically nobody has ever heard of him before.

Is Zach Hall considered an NHL prospect now? He was good in Barrie last year but has been tremendous this year, 43 points in 32 games on the second line. Don't believe anyone holds his NHL rights, he's looked very good when I've watched this year, speedy playmaker.

Silfverberg was always one of the top forward prospects in his age group in Sweden.
