Herbert in the middle of two of the most bizarre goals you'll see. He knocked Maine's net off, UMD stopped playing and Maine promptly goes down and scores for a 2-0 lead. Then to tie it back up Herbert strips a Maine defenseman for a breakaway, his shot grazes the crossbar, banks off the back boards and then off the goalie and in.
Wey had a great weekend matched up against AFA's and UMD's top lines all weekend.
His team scored 2 PP goals and he assisted on both. He scored a goal and was +3 for the weekend. He was on for 5 of BC's 6 goals and had a hand in three. Earned All Tournament Honors for the Regional.
I thought Wey could surely use another year at BC before going pro but now I'm not so sure. BC will likely lose Dumoulin & Kreider along with their seniors so it's likely to be something of a transition year. The biggest benefit next year would be an increased leadership role I guess but he may be ready for another level.
Minnesota should be a tougher test, perhaps the toughest under the circumstances. Compared to UMD they're playing at a higher pace, have better depth and their D are better at chipping in.
Miskovic and Collins are UFAs, and according to capgeek Marshall is an RFA (though I thought I read somewhere he was a UFA but I can't find it now). Brouillette will be a UFA as well, and I'm unsure of Wellar's contract status. There's potential for several spots to open, and I don't really anticipate Washington re-signing Miskovic (Collins is a maybe). Unsure of Hershey's priorities with regards to the veteran d-men, but Flemming is also knocking on the door.
Something along those lines maybe. Marshall will be RFA coming off his ELC and will require waivers but I think he'd clear. Pretty young for a Hershey D I guess. Wellar is a decent 3LD fit. Stevenson could maybe be in that mix and obviously any college/depth signings otherwise.
With Wey a pairing above Flemming in that lineup, are you implying you think he's ready to be a better AHL player than Flemming at this point? I would have made the opposite assumption, but I haven't seen either of them play so that's pretty worthless anyway.
If he's assuming the right role, yes. More than anything I think he's just the better stylistic compliment to more of a finesse defenseman in McNeill. Flemming has a wider skill set but Wey's strengths are a little more clear-cut. That doesn't necessarily make Wey better just that it may be easier for him to find a role he can grow into (and one he'd assume in that pairing). Wey's playing hard minutes at BC and while certainly helped in being paired with a Hobey nominee in Dumoulin he's come along physically pretty nicely. I don't have quite the same concerns about his ability mentally and positionally to defend at a high pace.
Both Stanislav Galiev (Saint John Sea Dogs) and Samuel Carrier (Baie-Comeau Drakkar) are through to the QMJHL quarterfinals by way of 4-0 series wins. Unfortunately, looks like they will be playing each other. The Dogs are the top seed, while the Drakkar caused a huge upset over Victoriaville, so they are the lowest seed left.
In four games, Galiev scored 3 goals, had 9 assists, and was +13. Carrier has 1 goal, 2 assists, and even.
Rumor on eliteprospects that Soberg is changing teams within the Norwegian league from Manglerud to Vålerenga and says "confirmed with inside information". Looks like Vålerenga was just eliminated in the semi-finals.
