Schenn is basically a winger these days, and it sounds like Couts will play RW on the second line if he can't displace Briere.

I've heard that he's not quite as strong offensively as Richards, but still a real solid young player.

I doubt he sticks more than 5 games tbh. He's a stop gap until Briere is ready and then Couturier likely moves to the 3C role.

At six o'clock, anyone that gets the Big Ten Network can watch Kerdiles square off against Miami Ohio.

Man, unbelievable. Best Ducks prospect Hockey East LW since Paul Kariya.

Really though, he's going to have status in a few years. Top-10 prospect in the NHL easy by then.

Really? I don't know anything about the kid, other than he's small, but is he projected to be a legit prospect at this point, or is he just a small skilled player that's getting away with the lack of size in college?

He's skilled as hell. But awful tiny. He's not dominating like Kariya did, but I doubt he lasts 4 years at Northeastern.

And Wisconsin is 8-0-3 since Kerdiles returned from his suspension.

Very very far difference between the two.

Still stoked about our Kerdiles draft pick.

He has insane hands. Might be this year's Gaudreau. I've only seen a couple games, but if he can improve his speed he might be another steal in the midrounds.

He's currently one point behind Barber, good for 2nd best amongst freshmen.

Isn't Roy a year older though? I thought we picked him up as an overager in the draft.

It's determined by school year, not age; unless they were redshirted.

As of tonight, Wisconsin is on an 11 game unbeaten streak that started when Kerdiles joined the team(8-0-3).

Does this mean he can use the same loophole as Schultz?

I believe that both he and Welinski could, but maybe I don't understand the rule.

Roy seems like a really good kid, so I wouldn't worry about him. I doubt he'd stay for three years. Also, one of his teammates is a Ducks pick, and another was at our camp.

I don't know enough about Welinski to tell there. He's an American, so maybe we're safe?

Roy is a year older than other 2012 draftees. That means he's a year older than most college freshmen. In terms of evaluating him vs his peers, I'd say his numbers would be slightly less impressive than a 18 year old freshman putting up the same numbers but slightly more impressive than a "redshirt freshman" or a 1st year playing sophomore putting up those numbers.

(note: assuming new CBA doesn't change these rules at all)

He is not subject to the "Schultz loophole." Bottom line for college guys is they become UFA 4 years after they are drafted or when their college class graduates. Which ever comes first.

The "Schultz loophole," which again is not a real loophole because it actually treats all college kids the same when you consider them by age and draft year (and not by graduating year), comes about because Schultz played in the USHL for a year after being drafted but before joining college. This does not apply to Roy. He will not become UFA until he graduates.

Roy is producing at a higher PPG clip than Gaudreau did in his freshman season. However, like Snark said, he's actually a few months older than Gaudreau, he's also not quite as small as Gaudreau, as Roy is apparently 5'10 or so.

Either way, no one can argue that transitioning from the USHL to the NCAA is a big adjustment, so it wouldn't be fair to compare Gaudreau's 2nd season with Roy's 1st season, even if they're roughly the same age.

Either way, he's playing extremely well, especially lately and he's proving he's a quality 4th round pick. Hopefully he continues to dominate the NCAA and is then able to transition to the pros.

Also, Roy is not the prospect of a Canadian team. He's a prospect of the Anaheim Ducks, who only have upside or talent when they've actually made the NHL and dominated, or could possibly be had in a trade.

I disagree with the bolded. When they could be traded for, what do you expect to get for a guy that was drafted in the 4th round? Why would one give up anything for value for that?

I meant in the context of his age vs. his peers. He'd have a slight advantage over the average freshman. I wouldn't say it's a huge advantage, or that he should in some way qualify as a redshirt freshman or a sophomore, because he doesn't have the extra year of college experience or training, but it doesn't seem fair to compare a 19 year old to an 18 year old.

Cramarossa with a goal and an assist. He's Belleville's second best forward at the moment.

O'Brien had an assist and 4 hits in his last game.
