I'm glad that Ryan Murphy didn't win CHL defenseman of the year, because then it would mean that he's not any good. Only bad players win CHL awards.

I was being sarcastic. Another poster said that Sproul won OHL dman of the year (over Murphy) because the coaches only see numbers and don't know who the good players are. Same with the year end voting.

Has 10 points in 12 games.

4 goals, 6 assists

The PP skills have transitioned quickly as have a lot of his offensive instincts. His D is coming along but still has some rough edges. But the offensive side of his game has transitioned very smoothly to pro hockey although there weren't many questions that it would happen.

Still a nice start to the season, Grand Rapids is an extremely powerful team, this addition actually has a better D than the championship team, we will have to see how they take the eventually Nyquist promotion though. Nyquist is pretty much indefensible at this level, especially on the PP, teams don't even want to attack him, he gains the zone every time with ease, will be curious to see what they do when he finally leaves although Jurco has also been extremely impressive so he could become the go to on the PP setup.

After a bumpy couple home games to start the season they are hammering teams lately and the young D-man in their first AHL season Ouellet, Sproul and Marchenko all look studly. Should get Jensen back around Christmas as well, tons of talent, speed and puck movement on that backend.

Someone posted on the wings board a scout that said that. He has an argument as good as anyone with his size, skating and shot. Hes adjusting to the AHL like its nothing to him as well
