Prospect Camp Ramblings

So here’s the roster for the prospect camp that the Flyers are holding this week. A few names are familiar, but I don’t really know anyone on this list. I don’t follow the junior leagues, college hockey, or any other level outside of the NHL.  So therefore, I really don’t know much about any of these guys and what style they have and what their strengths are.  So here’s a breakdown of them based on some numbers that jump out at me from that roster sheet.

Forwards
Jason Akeson
: 108 points in 67 games. Maybe this is a weak league, but that’s some pretty good offense.

Sean Couturier: 6″4″ is a nice frame, hopefully he’s got some muscle to add to it. 96 points in58 games.  I know he’s the 8th pick in this past draft, so we’ve got some lofty expectations for him.

Derek Mathers: 171 PIM’s in 55 games.  I wouldn’t mind a young tough guy to replace Jody Shelley.

Brayden Shenn: No real eye-popping numbers, but they’ve hyped him up a lot since we traded for him.

 

Defense
Marc-Andre Bourdon: 225Lbs. Big boy to clear the crease.

Etienne Boutet: 115 PIMS in 64 games.  Agressive, I want that out of a d-man.

Erik Gustaffson: 44 Assists in 72 games, also a few games with the big club. Trending up I hope?

Brandon Manning: 53 points in 53 games, and 129 PIMs. Offense and aggressive, I really like it.

 

Goalies
Niko Hovinen
: 6’7″. Huge? Yes. Good? Time will tell.

 

Note: I mostly ignored guys born before 1990 because those guys should have made it by now.
