    I don't see how a 20 year old is any more or less likely to drive themselves than an 18 year old.

There is no charge but because of Hart Building security requirements, registration deadline is May 17, which is only a couple of days away. Here's the registration link:

    2018 recruits Tyler Madden (F) and Jordan Harris (D) are both attending the NHL Scouting Combine. Have seen them mock drafted anywhere from the end of round 2 (Harris) to the middle of round 5.

    Captains announced for next season.

    C: Eric Williams
    A: Jeremy Davies
    A: John Picking
    A: Ryan Shea

    First Canadian captain since Roy. Davies is a good indication that he will stay, even if NJ gets some blue line openings. For Picking, it's a testament to his growth and importance to the team. I thought he blossomed in his role last season. Three defensemen with letters next season, shows how important defense and goaltending will be as we hope that scorers can step up to replace some of 8/9/21's lost production

    All seem like great selections. Agreed that Picking is great choice based on his hard work and hustle.

    I don't feel like Williams has improved much since he got here. We desperately needed a right shot D to step up and take big minutes after Cockerill left last year, and instead it was Cecere going over to the right side to take on the load while the three other LD took some shifts on the right side to help him out. If Williams is the man, I'll be looking for some big strides forward.

    I would expect an inspired effort from Eric this year as he takes on the role of captain. I hope to see the kind of game from him that earned the CHL Defenseman of the Year when he was with Aurora. Personally, there is nothing that would get me to try block one of his slapshots.

    I wouldn’t have expected Brandon Hawkins to be a captain but do see him as being a huge contributor next season and playing a leadership role. Meeting him a few times he is very mature and I believe he may be a couple years older than the other guys but I could be wrong.

    Forgot to post here after posting on DHD. I won't even go into my personal opinions of CHL vs NCAA; I think this kid made a very dumb decision. But that's not important. Some people have said, and I agree, that we will find another player to take the scholarship we offered DesRoches, however, it's a bigger deal than just losing a regular jabroni. Part of ascending to the elite/very good levels of college hockey is having the ability to both commit these elite talents AND get them to campus. DesRoches is one of those elite 02 right-handed defensemen, which don't grow on trees. It's not like there are a lot of elite 02s still out there waiting to be had. So losing a player of his level is a loss for the pipeline.

    Now, it's the risk we take in being active in pursuing these kids, both in this age group and Canadians as a whole. But we need to be doing that in order to compete with the top programs annually as we go forward. It sucks when a kid uses his verbal commitment to shift and shake his way to his preferred CHL team, and that appears to be what happened here. I trust JM/JK/JS to find a quality player to replace DesRoches in the pipeline, but that doesn't mean losing a highly-regarded recruit doesn't sting.

    Looks like Saint John likes your recruits. Today they selected Jack Williams with the 1st pick in the two round American Draft http://theqmjhl.ca/draft/2018QMJHL_US
    Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

    Nah. He retired a couple of years ago. I'm afraid you'll have find a new home some other way!

    Both of the St. Johns picks were teammates at Selects Academy this past season.
