Correct. He would need to sign a contract, and that kills his eligibility.

Kerdiles goal per the box score.

Keep Kerdiles in the NCAA. There is no need to take all our good prospects to pro leagues ASAP

I rather see him develop at least one more season in Wisconsin.

I meant more so that he can keep playing competitive hockey rather then having to wait awhile for the next NCAA year.

We don't have any choice in the matter. He isn't under contract.

If anybody saw the per-recorded, between periods interview with a few of the Badgers, Kerdiles mentioned looking forward to playing for them for "the next couple of years". Direct quote on the couple of year part.

I imagine he was, but I didn't see that move as moving down thinking they'd still get Karlsson and pick up an extra asset, but rather the package being so overwhelming that they felt it was worth the risk of losing Karlsson. Obviously didn't turn out to be true, but at the time I agree with it. A first round pick to move down five spots is outrageous.

I wish we wouldn't have done it, though. Not only for the obvious reason, but just to see the reaction on here when we passed on Tyler Myers for Karlsson, and then especially after Myers' Calder winning year. Some posters on here would've been livid.

We then packaged that extra first for a couple of seconds did we not? If Schultz was taken with one of those picks it would essentially be Schultz & Gardiner for Karlsson. I'd still take Karlsson 10 times out of 10 over the two of them though.

It wasn't Schultz, it was Deschamps and O'Dell(turned into Caputi and Christensen). Also a smart move, moving down 7 spots in a very gray area of the draft for a top 40 pick. Made a lot of smart moves that year, just didn't capitalize a whole lot on the drafting part.

Although something I've noticed we seem to have figured out better than the rest of the league, picks at the top of the 2nd round are undervalued and can be capitalized on. I believe our lowest first pick of the second round since Burke took over has been at 42(Tangradi and DSP). Again, haven't capitalized on the drafting part, but that's an area we seem to be ahead of the game in.

Looks like Ducks have signed 2012 4th round pick Andrew O'Brien.

I'll post link soon.

Awesome. We could use another gritty d-man in the minors.

O`Brien started the year with a very good PPG pace, but then was silent for almost all season.

I don`t know how he can get 113 PIM with only 1 fighting major also

But he is consistant hit leader in games. Unfortunately, QMJHL doesn`t track them for a season.

I was pretty hyped for him at the start of the season, but then i stoped following him. Don`t know how good or bad he was doing at the end. Well, he is still in the playoffs though.

He`s 6`4 and 206 according to QMJHL, but eliteprospects have listed him a lot different idk why

Looking on NHL.com's roster pages, I noticed it has prospect Kevin Gagne as a Duck ... When did this happen? I didn't know, but this is great unexpected news, he's the best defenseman in the Q.

I want to say early March. Gagne and Sarault were both around the same time, I believe.

Ah, funny, I looked at the Sarault signing article, don't know how I missed that lol.

Thanks anyways, good news no less. He's taken a big step forward this year and almost made the Bulldogs in October, so he could steal a job next year for us in the minors.

Lol HF ranks Gibson behind Binnington and Subban among AHL goalies.

In the meantime he leads all OHL goalies in the playoffs with a 96.2 sv%, a 1.62 GAA, all after facing the most shots (208) by a 24 shot margin and only 8 goals allowed the entire time.

Gibson so far comes up in big tournaments. He is very good at regular season also, thus far, but those guys have been better in those ''longer stints'' called a season. It`s not like those both goalies have been bad.

Let them have it I don`t really care where Gibson is in some charts. We know what he can do (or will we only know when he is playing in NOR or ANA?). Let him fly under the radar so he`ll ''rise like a Phoenix'' and other teams will say how lucky we are, because he wasn`t in (advanced stats) charts top when he was a prospect

You could easily argue that Subban is a better prospect than Gibson - it's not that far fetched. i didn't even notice that Binnington was ranked so I can't comment there.

I agree. I'm not sure I would, personally, but Subban over Gibson is easy to see. He has the athleticism edge. Gibson is a better technical goaltender. The clincher for me, and the reason I'd take Gibson over Subban, is that Gibson is already developing a reputation for coming up big when you need him to.

Well, Lindholm at least gets mentioned in HF's honorable mentions for the top-50:

Quote:
For Lindholm, there was debate over the type of overall potential the Swedish defenseman has as an NHL prospect. There is no question he can play in North America, as demonstrated by his solid play in the AHL as a 19-year-old, but many facets of his game are still very raw, and despite that readiness, he remains a project.
