Hayes puts up 0 points and is a -1 as BC beats Dartmouth 6-3.

It sounds worse than it is. Tonight was the Gaudreau show (5 points) and Hayes doesn't play on his line.

Boston College season ticket holder here. After his first two years, I had a lot of questions about Kevin Hayes being able to reach his first round potential. But let me tell you, his stat line does not tell the whole story. While nothing eye popping, he is not playing with BC's best forwards. He's playing with another good player, Bill Arnold, and then a grinder in Quinn Smith.

Hayes is emerging as a dominant college player. Different style than Jimmy, but like his brother, very difficult to get off the puck. Outstanding vision, passing and playmaking ability. He flat out dominates the shift most times he's out there. Countless times he has set up others who weren't able to cash in on golden opportunities.

As I said, I had my doubts about him, but he's maturing as a player and it's incredible the step he has taken this year. If he continues his progression, I'd imagine you'll be seeing him playing with his brother for the Hawks at some point in time.

I've only seen Kayes play once or twice, but he sounds like a poor man's Joe Thornton. Is that a decent comparison, playing-style wise?

Ha funny you should say that...great minds think alike

That's the exact comparison I used for him earlier on a BC board.

He assisted on the first goal and scored the tying goal. Jokerit won 3-2 in overtime. Teuvo has been on fire since his return from injury

I have to admit that I was a bit discouraged by Teuvo's slow start even though we heard rave reviews from prospect camp. Teuvo basically was like a 5th rounder to start the year last year but just kept rising and was up to top 10 on almost every list I saw by the end of the season/playoffs.

But part of the reason he was thought of so highly was because he just kept getting better and better and better. That wasn't the case from last year to this year, in fact it might've been a downgrade. But it sounds like he really has gotten back on track the past 10 or so games, especially the past couple. I find European prospects more worry some because it is harder for me to watch them play if they aren't providing offensive stats.

Anyone know if TT is still playing in the middle or at LW?

I remember hearing they tried him at center again with all of their injuries, but I don't know if it stuck.

Wing.

He wasn't as good today imo as stats tell. He was good but not he's best game certainly. Got knocked off the puck too easily imo, maybe tried too do too much himself. He can use he's linemates well so it's no big issue.

Of course skating and especially hands were there. Very noticeable throughout the game, he played a lot.

The opposing team is/was pretty good defensively though.

Teuvo 1+1 (Teuvo got assist for first goal, and his goal around 2:20)

Not that it should surprise anyone, but TT was listed today on Finland's preliminary U20 WJC roster

McNeill won't make it because Hockey Canada just has something against him and Danault might make it as a 13th forward. Would love to see Danault pull an Olympic Toews and go from 13th forward to working his way up through the line-up... but he just needs to secure a spot first.

I think Danault is close to a lock to play in the bottom 6...I think you're underselling his chances a bit. I would be absolutely shocked if he wasn't on the team and I think most experts would as well. He was so close to making it last year as it is.

McNeill played really well in the scrimages last year but then got cut for it...and then Jenner made the team and he was crap and committed dumb penalties in the scrimmages. It was satisfying for me to see him also play bad in the WJC and for Canada to lose.

McNeill does need to play 100% all of the time...especially on the backcheck. He can make a physical impact as well. He needs to prove he can play on the 3rd or 4th line to Canada and they won't be able to leave him off hopefully.

Danault is basically a lock for 4th line C from everything I have heard.

McNeill has a good chance to make it as one of his wingers, or if he plays really well, a 3rd line W.

..and I'm not sure what Jenner you watched Romer. He was great in the WJC last year until he was suspended. Ya, he did take a couple questionable penalties, but overall he was the best energy line guy they had. He is a guarantee to make it this year, probably as the 3rd line C.

I'd call Danault a lock. As has been echoed, McNeill has been blackballed for whatever reason.

Long time since posting, so some thoughts on prospect happenings:

- I'm not surprised by Leddy's lack of production to start the year. I never bought into him being a great offensive Dman. His strength is in his skating ability and transtional play, not in QBing a PP. Not calling Leddy bad or anything, just don't think he'll be a great scoring Dman and never thought he would.

- Broadhurst has been playing very well on a line with Seth Griffith and Max Domi for the London Knights. They're currently on a 15 game winning streak.

- I caught a Rockford shootout win against Lake Erie a week or so ago. I was most impressed with Adam Clendening, the entire Kruger-Morin-Saad line and Nick Leddy. Clendening's poise and ability to read plays from the point in the offensive zone is outstanding. I didn't notice his defensive play to anything better than average, but also can't remember him doing anything stupid with the puck in his own zone.

- Phillp Danault is a lock to make Team Canada, the real question is if McNeill can shake off the HC hate and make the team. McNeill's more than good enough to make the team in the bottom 6, but regardless of how he plays, I doubt he'll make the team.

- Anyone else notice Kevin Hayes' strong start? I believe he has 12 points in 13 games; though, I believe 4 of his 5 goals have come on the PP. I do like Hayes, even if he doesn't become a "legit" top-6 forward, he's big guy with good hands, good hockey sense and he'll park himself infront of the net on the PP.

Have to agree about Danault. Looks like he is a lock and one of those guys you win championships with
