Our first look at Canadiens prospects south of the Canadian border from the NCAA and USHL.


National Collegiate Athletic Association (Big Ten, Hockey East, NCHC)

 

RW Cole Caufield #8, Wisconsin Badgers (Big Ten)

Cole Caufield leads the country in goals. Do I have to say more? He’s also adapting well early on to the pace and strength of College hockey but that’s nothing new….he’s done that his whole life. We’re all reloading our feeds during a Wisconsin game to see if he scored and it seems to happen on a nightly basis.

LW Jack Gorniak #11, Wisconsin Badgers (Big Ten)

Gorniak continues to be a complimentary player for the Badgers contributing defensive assignments on the PK and applying a heavy forecheck on the offense. He’s skating well out there and even though he didn’t produce this month he is bringing other intangibles on the 4th line.

LD Jordan Harris #2, Northeastern Huskies (Hockey East)

Jordan Harris has been a great revelation for many of us who didn’t know him. He’s come into the 2019-20 season with higher expectations and if October is any indication of whats’ to come, he’s trending upwards. He’s produced well and has been a valuable pivot to the Huskies playing in all situations and heavy minutes.

LD Jayden Struble #3, Northeastern Huskies (Hockey East)

Jayden Struble started the year on the injured list but made his way into the lineup for Northeastern and is slowly getting back to playing that hard-nosed game he played in high school last year. He’ll need some time to adjust to the speed of the game but his athletic ability and strength should give him an early edge.

C/RW Brett Stapley #7, Denver Pioneers (NCHC)

Stapley has played all up and down the lineup but mainly as the 3rd line center/winger for the Pioneers. He’s a multi-position player that brings some flexibility and proves to be a key contributor both on the powerplay and penalty kill. He’s shown the ability to escape forecheckers and make slick plays with his soft hands.

United States Hockey League

LW Rhett Pitlick #9, Omaha Lancers (USHL)

Pitlick has started out the season playing mainly on the 3rd line while seeing some powerplay time. His production is somewhat okay and maybe underwhelming but it’s still early on so we can expect him to catch fire soon enough.
