Future NHEhlers – February 3rd, 2015

Recently the new Nations Network Overloard –Thomas Drance — signed a few blogger free-agents. One of these signings was myself. I will pick up where Garret Hohl left off in his old “lower” blogging days, providing you with weekly updates on all of the latest in Jets prospects. This will be in a similar format to how Canucks Army has a weekly Prospects / AHL report.

For those who do not know me, I have been writing on the internet for the last two years and my main interest in hockey analytics is in prospects and draft analytics.  I am the proprietor of CHLStats.com and am interested in predicting which juniors are most likely to make the big show. Most of my work can be found on Canucks Army.

For AHL prospect news make sure to check back in a few days. For now, continue past the jump for the latest in prospects news!

          After attending the Young Stars prospect tournament in Penticton, I must say that Winnipeg has one of the most exciting prospect pools in the NHL.

          Notable players include the obvious choices in Petan with his smooth puck handling and playmaking abilities, the surprising two-way play and competitiveness in Ehlers’ game, and Morrissey’s hard-hitting yet offensively driven style, but also the lesser knowns such as Chase De Leo with strong compete and vision, and the impressive puck handling skills of goaltender Olkinuora.

          The future looks bright for Jets fans and might be the very thing to change my opinion about the city of Winnipeg (my least favourite city in Canada).
