Habs Prospect Corey Locke wins OHL scoring title.

Congratulations to you Mr. Locke for winning the soring title for 2nd straight year. He had alot less support this year than last. I think the Habs got this guy in return for the Petrov pick. Good work for such a little guy.

He definitely was a steal for us. His size scared off a lot of teams, but his hockey and scoring sense is unmatched for players in the CHL.

Maybe he can turn into another Mike Ribeiro for us... that'd be sweet. If anything, I hope Ribeiro proved to everyone in the organisation why it's better to give your young players the time they need to developp...

This is interesting:

hi

Give him a few years and I could see this guy being big in the NHL, it's just the way he moves around some guys, it's like the other players are Midget players and he's already in the NHL. Crazy

He might have the talent, Eric Staal was selected 3rd (??) in last years draft when he went through a 98 points season.. now he is in the nhl. Locke managed to get 151 points last year and 116 pts this year.. i don't think these stats are garbage.

He is something like 5'10 and 180, so i think he could play in the nhl.

Yeah but stats are for baseball.

Staal has been picked second overall.

Locke isn't really that good all-around... but that sort of things can be learned. You can get stronger and faster by going to a gym. Locke has something that cannot be taught... instincts.

No Locke was from our 4th pick, the Petrov pick we got was traded to Washington for their 4th and 7th round picks which turned out to be Danny Stewart and Oskari Korpikari.



And I would say Locke is around 5'8 maybe 5'9 but he does look a little heavier say around 175-180 maybe. He's had another outstanding year and hopefully is signed this summer and sent to Hamilton, as there's not point of him going back to the OHL next year, imo. Then we'll see how he does down there, as I like to compare Locke to Ribeiro in some ways and Ribs was a solid player in the AHL with Quebec, hopefully Locke has the same success, as he needs to get stronger, quicker, better in his own end and better skating. imo but his playmaking skills are tops in the CHL as he can thread the needle with some exceptional passes.

I think 30 NHL GM's would agree that Crosby can match Locke's scoring sense
