Prospect Update: Skjei Scores Three (With Video) ; Duclair MVP Finalist

Defensively efficient prospects unfairly take the backseat to the skilled offensive guys. A three-point game and a nice move in the shootout makes for a good highlight video whereas a couple good pokechecks and neutral zone interceptions do not. It’s easy to look at a statsheet and see that a player had two goals, and therefore surely did something right. But there’s little in...
