  1. Lyle,

    Let’s add #11= Niko Mikkola to the list. I like what I’m seeing. Keep an eye on him too.

  2. Wow. No poj? Guy looks good and is playing upwards of half a game per night. And probably won’t lose a top 4 spot anytime soon with the injuries.

    • Looks to be a nice pickup by Rutherford in the Kessel deal.

  3. My boy:

    Nils Hoglander, F, Vancouver Canucks: The 20-year-old has scored six points (three goals, three assists) in 12 games, tied with Ottawa Senators forward Josh Norris for second among rookies 21 or younger, leads all NHL rookies in takeaways (10) and is averaging 14:12 of ice time at right wing with Bo Horvat and Tanner Pearson,. Hoglander is a left-handed shot but played left and right wing with Rogle of the Swedish Hockey League. Vancouver controls 52.2 percent of all shots attempted when Hoglander has been on the ice.

    • Agree ‘V’. 200 foot game, motor always running Hoglander is a 2nd round steal for Benning and Canucks
