Hanowski looked decent yesterday, showed good tools and had good energy in the first half, disappeared in the 2nd half of the game though. He could be one of those players that makes an intriguing jump after turning pro because he looks like he'll perform at a higher level of play.

His linemate and LA pick Nic Dowd ('09 7th) really stood out though, created a lot of St. Cloud's offense. He might even be a UFA in June ala Schultz (I'm unsure w/ the new CBA tho).

also named 3rd star

He also drilled more than a couple Marlies with big hits.

just saw this quote from Ward pop up on twitter:

"He's an old-school guy for a young-school kid. He plays like an old guy from the 70s and 80s. ... just a throwback."

Hey guys, ready to watch your new boy Ken Agostino tonight? I know he's really tight with Laganiere and Laganiere went to Pens prospect camp with Agostino cuz they're good friends. Do you think you have a shot at signing Laganiere because of him?

I've been doing some prospect work and both players made my top 5 of players to watch in tonight's game.

Gaudreau also ranked #1 for undersized prospects.

on another note, Nick Larson signed a tryout with Peoria of the AHL, so safe to say he won't be signed (not surprisingly) if he's on a try out with a different organization's farm team.

Hanowski likely isn't truly NHL ready, but giving him a couple games at the tail end of a losing season is pretty smart. He'll probably be in Abbotsford next season, but it will definitely be a help to him to get a couple NHL games in first, good little learning experience.

Hey thanks for that link.

Agostino has been noticeable, even though he's been held off the scoresheet. The announcers referred to him as a "one man wrecking crew" as he went 1 on 3 into the offensive zone, and won the puck battle to set up a scoring chance (although his pass attempt failed miserably).

Big assist for the third goal though. Looks like they're headed to a win.

Just curious, what kind of minutes was Jankowski getting at Providence? His production was not too bad for a freshman, but not great. Was he playing bottom 6? 4th line? Any PP time?

From what I've heard/been told is he's been playing on the third line, and 2nd unit PP.

Thanks, numbers still aren't too bad in that case. He was a project when drafted so a big upswing in production could be coming, likely next season. It's a tough jump to make to go from where he was to Hockey East. Chris Kreider made a similar jump from Prep to Hockey East, he had a better freshman year but a lot of that happened because he got the benefit of playing at WJC and it really helped him. Being Canadian, Jankowski didn't get that luxary.

I'm pretty sure it was second line wing. But Providence is such a low scoring team that it was almost as if they never had a 1st line.

I was fairly impressed with Hanowski tonight. I went in expecting him to be very slow and far from NHL ready.

He definitely is not the most fleet of foot, but I think his deficiencies in his skating were overstated. He is not a good skater, but not a bad one either. He seemed to have a nose for where to be on the ice both offensively and defensively. He showed an ability to get a shot off very quick and also get it up very quick which is great to see. I am definitely encouraged by what I saw tonight.

However, he needs to be more physical, there were a few times he could have played the body (or played it harder) and didn't, that NEEDS to improve.

All in all I think he has a better shot at being a regular NHL player than I did when the trade went down and I did my research, I thought the odds were 40/60 against him, now I would say those are reversed in his favor. I do still see his top end as being a 3rd liner though, but I think he has a much better shot at being a 3rd liner than I did even a few days ago.

Also, congrats to Hanowski on his first NHL goal. Hopefully this experience and the confidence gained helps him develop into the player we hope he can be.

He's certainly not a bad player, per se. The skating thing as a deficiency isn't a "true" deficiency in Feaster/Weisbrod's eyes as skating can truly be improved as opposed to the whole "natural hockey IQ/hockey instincts" that can be honed but you're either born with or without it.

All in all, a good debut. Hanowski reminds me strongly of a slightly more hard-nosed Glencross but with choppier skating but he shares the same kind of demeanour. If Hanowski really does become like Glencross, that cannot possibly be a bad thing.

I feel the skating will come; it was his first game in the NHL and even he admitted the speed was incredibly fast compared to what he had seen before. Remember, everyone was saying the same thing when Max was up his first couple games, but he has settled in as well.

I feel he has better hockey IQ and better hands than Glencross. Those will become more obvious as he actually plays minutes.

I think their IQ level is very similar, PERHAPS Hanoowski's is better but I think I'd disagree with you on the hands unless you are talking dangling. Glencross is not much for dangling, but he has one hell of a wrister. Nothing to suggest that Hanowski has that kind of shot yet but of course, have to give it time.

Hi Calgary fans, St. Cloud State fan here. I've been following Ben's career for the last eight years. Your assessment touches on most of the same positives and negatives typically used to describe Ben's game. Not a great skater, not super physical, good vision, good IQ, fantastic shot.

As somebody mentioned in a different thread, Ben is pretty serious in his interviews and interactions, but he definitely has a dry wit that will peek out from time to time. He should be a good interview for the rest of his career. He is also good captain material in the long-term and should be a good color commentator after he finally hangs his skates up.

Not many teams carry shootout specialists anymore, but I would expect Ben to get picked for them more often than not. I don't know that he'll have many trick moves, but he won't have much difficulty putting the puck EXACTLY where he wants it with a fair amount of velocity.

Funny thing about St. Cloud State alumni, they often look like AHL lifers in the NCAA, then end up becoming NHL regulars. Cases in point; Ryan Malone, Matt Hendricks, and Mark Parrish never led the Huskies in scoring. In fact, Parrish and Malone never did better than 3rd! However, Hanowski led the team in scoring last year, so maybe he'll end up more like Matt Cullen?

The trade obviously worked out well for Ben, as I highly doubt he would have played and scored for the Pens by this point. I hope he works out well for you guys. He'll be a great ambassador for SCSU hockey.

TBQH Ben looked really nervous during his interview in the 1st intermission on Monday. But then again with everything happening if he wasn't nervous he wouldn't be human.

Brossoit is probably 2 years away from NHL hockey but he actually looks pretty good. He can be inconsistent and is playing on a very good team. Next year if he play in the AHL we will get a better read on him but he looks pretty good.

The AHL is the most logical stepping stone for him. You're right, it will be easier to get a better read on him. 2years in Abby should be enough.


So far in the playoffs:
12 - 1 - 3 / 1.58gaa / .941sv / 5so
