Junior Aged Players That Could Make The Jump This Season

Hmm... Well, I doubt that any of the college players will make the jump this year. So scratch Patches, McDonagh, Fischer et al.

But my guess is that Maxwell, White and Weber have the best chances... maybe i'm missing somebody.

I heard that Torp was the #1 ranked European defenceman in last year's draft. But he was injured last season and didn't play at all. That can't be good for the deveopment of a young player. I wonder if he'll impress this year at this development camp.

staying in Juniors or moving to hamilton:

Mcdonaugh

Fischer

Weber

Subban

Pacioretty

No NHL potential but AHL possibility:

Kishel

Paquet

Torp

BEAUREGARD

What's that based on? Torp was rated amongst the top 7 Europeans in his draft year, his stock has only fallen because he was injured all last season.

Beauregard went from scoring 71 goals in junior to being the second highest scorer on his ECHL team. He looked good in TC last year.

beauregard is overage though, he lit it up with cincy this year along with desharnais and latendresse, but i think he'll still probably spend most of his career in the AHL, although i hope that he becomes good enough to be a top line player :P

what about brock trotter? i know he's not going to be ready for the jump to the big game but does anybody know anything about him? does he have potential?

He has to put on muscle, a lot of it. Don Lever mentioned in the newspaper near the end of last season that he had no strength at all.

wow cool thanks! i didn't know anything about this guy other than that we signed him midway through the season b/c of some personal issues with the school he was playing with. I think at the time it seemed like MR timmins was saying great things about him.

Also, I don't have TV but I do catch all the habs game on the net through RDS for 2.99/game..so i haven't heard of much other than what was said on the website and stuff.

I wonder if Mcdonagh is ready to be 4,5,6 defencmen or not even close. ;)

Not even close, he was the #4 defenseman behidn 3 seniors in his freshman year, but now they all graduated and hes the #1 guy, so it will be good fir his development. Then he will have to go for seasoning in the AHL.

However, one interesting note is maybe, just maybe Pacioretty is ready to make the jump according to reports out of devlopment camp.

I know, but Pacioretty would most likely play in the AHL.

Chipchura and Stewart are no longer junior players. They have already jumped to professional, and have been playing in the AHL.

2 seasons ago was Latendresse, last season was S. Kostitsyn, how about next season, any junior aged(20 and younger) players that could make the jump?

Based on the orignal post in this thread I also thought this thread meant from the juniors (AHL) to The NHL. It references Latendresse and Kostitsyn who made the jump from the Bulldogs.

---I get it...based on age...my bad.

Ah yes. I don't believe Guillaume ever played with Hamilton, but Sergei definitely did for 1/2 of a year.

Either way, I don't think anyone will be making the jump from that age group this year. Chipchura will come on board as our 4th center, and Valentenko may see some action on a callup basis, but that's it.
