The team scouts I most frequently see at the game are from the Leafs. Philly was there a lot last year, but they signed Flanagan so that may have been the target.

I saw Burke (or some guy who looked just like Burke) standing by himself at Appleton about 2 years ago.

This season he was shockingly named captain but has had an amazing bounce back year so far. That junior campaign does scare me though. He's arguably our third best dman so far this young season behind JR Jaycob Megna (ANA) and FR Ian Brady. Brady has been paired with Young all season.
Brady is also draft eligible this year.

I'll throw out some names that haven't been mentioned recently as potential top FAs coming out of the NCAA ranks (in no particular order). FYI, scouts have been on to all of these guys for awhile now:

Ryan Hegarty, RPI - Currently leads the nation with 13 goals.

Austin Czarnik, Miami - Currently leads the nation in power play points (10) and tied for 3rd in scoring with 18 points.

C.J. Motte, Ferris State - Only goaltender in the nation right now that hasn't posted a loss (8-0-1) and currently leads the nation with a .944 winning percentage.

Trevor van Riemsdyk, New Hampshire - yes, he's the younger brother of JVR. Currently leads the nation in defenseman scoring with 13 points.

Others that I think are note worthy are as follows....

D: Ahti Oksanen, BU (Sophomore/6'3"/207lbs./20YOA)- 11 GP, 2 G, 7 A, 9 PTS
LW/C: Ross Mauermann, Providence (Junior/5'9"/170lbs./23YOA)- 11 GP, 10 G, 8 A, 18 PTS
LW: Sam Warning, Minnesota (Junior/5'9"/181lbs./21YOA)- 10 GP, 5 G, 12 A, 17 PTS
LW: Mike Szmatula, Northeastern (Freshman/5'9"/178lbs./21YOA)- 11 GP, 4 G, 12 A, 16 PTS
C: Mark Naclerio, Brown (Sophomore/5'11"/185lbs./21YOA)- 7 GP, 5 G, 7 A, 12 PTS
F: Cody Wydo, Robert Morris (Junior/5'10"/1175lbs./22YOA)- 9 GP, 10 G, 2 A, 12 PTS
D: Scott Czarnowczan, Ferris State (Senior/5'10"/176lbs./22YOA)- 11 GP, 4 G, 8 A, 12 PTS
D: Ralfs Freibergs, Bowling Green (Sophomore/5'11"/191lbs./22YOA)- 12 GP, 0 G, 8 A, 8 PTS

As for the goalies I've been liking....

Michael Garteig, Quinnipiac (Sophomore/6'1"/185lbs./22YOA)- 13 GP, 11-1-1, .924 SV%, 1.53 GAA
Steven Summerhays, Notre Dame (Senior/6'0"/188lbs./23YOA)- 12 GP, 8-2-1, .936 SV%, 1.66 GAA
Ryan McKay, Miami (Sophomore/6'1"/224lbs./21YOA)- 8 GP, 5-2-1, .943 SV%, 1.74 GAA
Pheonix Copley, Michigan Tech (Sophomore/6'3"/175lbs./21YOA)- 9 GP, 3-6-0, .929 SV%, 2.10 GAA
Casey DeSmith, UNH (Junior/6'0"/180lbs./22YOA)- 9 GP, 4-4-0, .930 SV%, 1.88 GAA
Steve Mastalerz, UMass-Amherst (Junior/6'2"/205lbs./21YOA)- 9 GP, 3-4-1, .925 SV%, 2.39 GAA
Ryan Faragher, St. Cloud (Junior/6'2"/205lbs./23YOA)- 8 GP, 7-1-0, .922 SV%, 2.01 GAA
Mathias Dahlstrom, Nothern Mich. (Freshman/6'0"/173lbs./22YOA)- 8 GP, 3-3-1, .922 SV%, 2.43 GAA

(Stats from http://www.uscho.com/stats/)

Out of the skaters, Oksanen and Warning are my two favorites as well as the ones you mentioned above and not to exclude the Carey brothers in RPI. As for the goalies, I'm impressed by Garteig and McKay and their stats, too.

Undrafted NCAA Free Agents

Anybody have a few guys that come to mind who are Undrafted and in the NCAA right now who are potentially NHL ready or who will at least make an impact in the Calder Cup playoffs this year and the NHL in the future?

I really like JVR's bro who I've been following since his high school days here in Jersey and Czarnik from Miami. Greg Carey a forward from St. Lawrence also looks like a possible NHLer along with Patrick Brown the captain from BC

He'll be 22 in May, captain, as elected by peers, at BC, shoots right, 6'1, 207 lbs., Hockey-East All-Academic team for his first 3 years at BC, son of Doug Brown (Former Pen, Redwing), had an amazing HS career in Michigan before BC, where he hasn't produced much. still worth a FA contract

He's been mainly used as a defensive/shutdown type of center for BC and is great on the PK. He plays a blue collar (for a lack of a better term) style. Nothing fancy. He's dependable and simply can get the job done.

pretty crazy considering how offensively gifted he was back in Michigan.

some players just level off it seems when they get to that 18-19 age. I had high hopes for Patrick Brown, he was a stud offensively. Now the hope is he can catch on somewhere as a gritty two way forward.

Thoughts on Tyler Barnes and Nick Sorkin as FA pick-ups? Both are having very good years and are former stand out HS players in their states.

does Greg Carey have any chance of making it to the NHL or is he just a career AHLer like Andy Miele?

I think he's got a decent chance. A terrific shot, good hands and finds the open spaces. I guess the question is does he have a good enough all around game to get himself a chance in the NHL. If he does, I think he'll produce points and stay.

His all around game has improved substantially since his freshman season. (His skating, he plays defense now...) But he still has a ways to go. If you put him directly on an NHL PP unit he'll score plenty but it may be in the signing teams best interests to see how he adjusts to the pro game in the AHL first.

Can anyone give an update on how Ryan Walters has looked this season? Strengths/weaknesses or any improvements he has made? Just stat watching- he is well off his pace from last season, but I'm not familiar with the makeup or playing style of the team. thanks

My understanding is that many NHL teams tried to sign him last year, but he decided to go back so that he could play with his brother who is a freshman this year. Expect him to get signed after this year and step directly into an NHL roster to finish the year.
Obviously, it depends on the team he signs with that will give him the best quality of ice-time.

He is also a very good student, and needs to finish his History major.

I'm sure he wouldn't be too opposed to winning a Hobey Baker, either.

Not sure about all of them, but my personal favorite is Trevor Van Reimsdyk, JVR's brother, who plays at UNH. Very good offensive defense man and will be sought over

Just to give you the head's up, I'm pretty sure he was injured and is probably done for the year. He's not a senior so expect him to be back next year before NHL teams actively pursue him.

2014 College Free Agents?

Don't really follow college hockey too much, curious as to whether or not anybody knows of a couple players like a J.T. Brown, Sustr, Ruhwedel, Dekeyser, or Krug out there this year to look out for?
