Given how many of Niagara's players would be graduating next season, I have no doubt Kuhnhackl would see tons of ice-time and probably be the go-to guy. But...

Given that he has improved his strength & skating, as well as overall defensive game, I have no doubt whatsoever that he is ready to make the jump to the AHL. In addition, I think the Pens coaches down there will give him more time in the situations where he can succeed and continue to refine his game, such as special teams and the PP in particular.

So I can't imagine him going back to the OHL, and I envision the Pens wanting him to be under their guidance to help him develop more quickly into an NHL player. If he continues to develop at this pace, I could see him being ready to make the jump from the AHL to the NHL after only 1 season. The Pens could use Kuhnhackl's skill to compliment their big 3 centres on one of the top 3 lines, and to do so at a low entry-level cap hit (at a time when many of our other forwards' contracts will be expiring, like Cooke, Dupuis & TK).

So what prospects do we have so far that look like good bets to make their professional debuts next season?

Joe Morrow - Old enough for AHL, and too good to send back
Beau Bennett - Signed contract, can no longer play in NCAA
Dominik Uher - Could go back for overage season
Tom Kuhnhackl - Could go back for overage season

Maybe Reid McNeil if they sign him. I think it's highly unlikely any of the other college guys leave, I expect Hanowksi and D'Agostino to be signed after they senior years next year.

Yeah... Selfishly though I'd like to see Hanowski in WBS next year.

Portland won 5-1, the series is tied at one game a piece.

No points for Morrow, but he played a decent overall game. The Shaw announcers spoke pretty highly of him. They mentioned that Mike Johnston has asked Morrow to follow the rush more instead of leading it to better utilize his shot.

Morrow picked up a double minor for roughing after mixing it up with Keegan Lowe and then continued to jaw with him when they were in the box. Presumably because Keegan is an awful name. It's like the male equivalent of Mykalla.

Twas a nice un, too. He hasn't been too noticeable in the past couple games though, outside of mixing it up with Lowe, haha.

Had a nice hit by the net too, but I didn't see who he tagged. Was hoping that it was Lowe.

Speaking of Letang, nice to see Kimmo T hasn't been the same since Letang destroyed him...

Guy has retard strength too, he doesn't look big but he is very, very strong. You can see it when he's leaning on a guy or fighting for a puck.

They said that in his prospect run downs last season. One that stood out to me is that it said he has "farm strength." That's the best kind of strength to have.

He's decided to be the blonde Letang, I hear he's learning French this summer.

A defenseman wearing number 7 and he's a feisty player? Definitely doesn't fit the Pens tradition of Martin and Eaton. He's going to change his number right?
