C Samuel Houde #88, Chicoutimi Saguenéens (QMJHL)

Houde continues to put up solid production while greatly improving other areas of his game this season. He has already matched last year’s point totals in 32 fewer games. He’s recorded career high’s for longest goal (6 GP), assist (6 GP) and point (14 GP) streaks which is a product of the consistency his shown thus far. One of the major improvements has been his willingness to utilize his linemates while breaking out of entering the zone. He’s also been a lot more aggressive and assertive away from the puck which has led to more scoring opportunities.

LW Rafaël Harvey-Pinard #11, Chicoutimi Saguenéens (QMJHL)

RHP had a blistering November scoring 10 times in 12 games. After what was an average start production-wise Harvey-Pinard has been a huge factor in many game-winning goals. He’s also turned it up on the special teams scoring 6 of his 10 goals on the powerplay and being a reliable penalty killer game in and game out.

C Cam Hillis #8, Guelph Storm (OHL)

After a tumultuous injury-riddled season captain Hillis has completely turned it around. If you wipe out last year’s stats he’s improved his point production by 0.59 pts/gp from his first season to this season. Hillis has partnered up with Gogolev early on to propel the “rebuilding” Guelph Storm to first place in the western conference. He’s played in all situations and continued to produce while building on his rookie year where he showed many translatable skills.

LD Jacob LeGuerrier #8, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds (OHL)

LeGuerrier has been a steady defensive defenseman for the Greyhounds who have gone through some rough patches in this month. His production has slightly dipped from early on this season but that was expected. He’s been a physical force on many nights dishing out big hits but his bread and butter has been his swift defensive plays. He has shown confidence picking up the puck and skating it out himself and activating from the point to keep offensive zone pressure.

C Allan McShane #61, Oshawa Generals (OHL)

McShane has had an interesting season production-wise to date. His play has been encouraging overall as he continues to create something out of nothing on any given night. Part of his “lack” of production has been partly on his linemates who also haven’t produced enough on paper thus far but we can certainly expect that to turn around shortly.

LW Cole Fonstad #42, Everett Silvertips (WHL)

Fonstad is fitting in comfortably with the Silvertips as he recorded at least one point in 16 of 17 games played with the Tips. Fonstad has been a model of consistency this year which has been a marked improvement in his game. The one area of concern has been his goal production which has been cut in half at this point compared to last season. He missed 4 games between October and November due to a minor injury. He also took part in the CHL Canada vs Russia series on November 13th & 14th.

LD Gianni Fairbrother #24, Everett Silvertips (WHL)

Fairbrother decided to really start the cannon this month which lead to his 4 goals. Over 50% of his shots came within those 12 games and it seems as though his pre-season injury is far in the rearview mirror. Fairbrother has been an aggressive force on the blue line for the Tips, factoring in on the powerplay, penalty kill and in key situations defensively. I expect him to continue his offensive production and finish close to 50 points by the end of the year.
