Future Prospects/Draftees

<< < (3/16) > >>


--- Quote from: gilmour4life on September 06, 2011, 10:37:06 AM ---speaking of future draft eligible players.  I seem to remember Martin Frk being highly touted.  I think he was playing in the Q last  year but being Slovakian (I believe), he may have gone home to better his chances of playing for their World Junior team.  I remember
when the games were in Ottawa, being told that they
like their team to play together for the season. The
Hockey News at one point threw out the name Cam
Neely as a compatible.

Frk is being seen as a top ten draft pick and yes, the Cam Neely comparison is quite appropriate.  Frk's style of play has been described as "hard-nosed".  He is from the Czech Republic, and will be in his 2nd season with the QMJHL's Halifax Moosehead.

I went to the prospects game tonight and it was one of the best CHL games i've seen in a long time. Team Orr, (coached by Mr. Quinn) won with a late goal to break the one > one tie. Mark Recchi was coaching Team Cherry. Fast, hard hitting and great skills were all over the ice. great game indeed.
The place was full of scouts and hockey greats, such as Mark Messier, and many more. Unfortunately there was a thousand empty seats.
