I just went to a Fog Devils and Mooseheads game, and I watched Hillier play.
He made some nice plays, and made some bad plays as well. One thing I notice bad about him, he was very slow going to his zone to backcheck, but very fast on the forecheck.
He made some very nice passes(he had 1 assist), yet he had alot of trouble handling passes.
He skates very fast. He played on a line with Brad Marchant, and I found Hillier to be more noticeable for the last 2 periods than marchant. I would like to see him up to our AHL team next year to get better.
I watch the Mooseheads on a regular basis and hillier could be a good steal for the Rangers, he has hands, grit, and speed, and with a little polishing could defenfiently be a real good NHL player. I was hoping Montreal would take him but i Think this guy has alot of the tools to be a good player for the rangers in a few years.
