Stephen Desrocher was traded to Kingston today for a boatload of picks.

3rd and 5th round selections in 2016, 2nd round selection in 2017, 2nd round selection in 2018, and two conditional selections in 2019 and 2021 in the 3rd and 2nd round at the OHL Priority Selection.

Leaf's 2015 6th rd pick.

I'm not familiar with junior trades, but that is indeed a huge number of picks for one guy.

Not all that unusual for junior deals - especially having them spread out over so many drafts. One of those conditional picks is 6 drafts from now.

Thanks busta.

In other news, Timashov is awesome.

There was an article posted here not long after the draft that pretty much predicted this.

Dzierkals is tearing it up too btw.

Andrew Nielsen has to be the standout prospect so far this year. 

Last year he played 59 games and put up 7G 17A 24P
This year he has 15GP 6G 11A 17P

Jeremy Bracco is off to a good start in Kitchener too.  2G 4A 6P in 3GP.

Yeah, aside from the author liking the sound of his own voice, he was almost spot on about Timashov.

I don't think it takes a crystal ball to say that someone who scores 90 points in 66 games in their draft year will improve at 19.

It's a bit of a downer that Team Sweden is likely going to snub Timashov for a spot with their WJC squad (presumably because he's not Swedish by descent). It would've been some kind of fun to preview him and Nylander together.

How is Kapanen getting on?

I've seen most of the Marlies games this year and he's struggled a little.

He has three goals for three points in eight games, I think he is trying to to figure out the smaller ice and his part in the defensive structure they want to play.

He has a great shot and shows flashes of why he's so highly regarded as a prospect, I expect he will break out a little fairly soon. He's also a guy that's suffering a little due to the Marlies depth, on most other teams I think he'd see a lot more ice that would allow him to work things out a bit quicker.

I can't find he ice-time stats, but from what I've seen, he has been playing more of a 3rd line role, he'll likely get more opportunity with the loss of Brown for an extended period.

A goal and an assist so far tonight for KK.

Marlies up 3-2 in Utica in the 2nd.
