Monday 3/26
OHL Quarterfinals:
Sarnia defeated Saginaw 6-5 (OT) (Lead Series 2-1)
Reid Boucher (LW): Goal (GTG at 9:09 of 3rd), Assist (GWG at 15:51 of OT), +1

Clutch performance by Boucher! Here are highlights from the game, you can see Boucher's goal about 8:40 in and his assist about 9:30 in.

for guys that follow these prospects, would you compare Boucher with Gionta?

Its hard for me to say since I haven't seen Boucher play any full games nor did I follow Gionta during his development but perhaps we can get a discussion going on this. First, I think its hard to compare OHL to NCAA hockey stats, especially with a 14 year difference between Gionta's first year in college to Boucher's first year in the OHL.

Gionta is listed at 5'7 174 lbs while Boucher is small but has already surpassed that at 5'9 190 lbs. In Boucher's first OHL season he posted a 28-22-50 line in 67 games, with the bulk of those points coming on the power play. +/- isn't a great stat but in Boucher's case his -19 while playing for a good team and scoring mainly on the man advantage suggest he doesn't fair well in even strength play. The scouting report on him was he has a great shot with solid offensive instincts but his defensive game is very raw.

In Gionta's first year in college he posted a 30-32-62 line in 40 games. For the bulk of his college career he was in the 54 to 62 point range over about 41 games a year. Obvsiouly he knew how to score in the college game but I have no idea how his defensive game during his college years was in terms of development compared to Boucher right now. I'd be interested in hearing what others have to say.

Man Reid Boucher really seemed to cool off toward the end of the season. I wonder if it has much to do with Nail Yakupov.

A blogger I just found on twitter tonight that follows Sarnia very closely had this to say on Boucher.

http://ohloutsider.b...-for-sting.html

Boucher has a lot of growing to do, needs to get stronger, needs to work on his defensive game and his offensive consistency. I believe that one more season in the OHL will benefit him in his long term development.

It seemed like he was streaky all year going by his game by game stats. I know in the preseason he was playing with Yakupov but I'm pretty sure he ended up off the line with him for the majority of the year. His January was atrocious from the looks of things.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Sunday 4/8
OHL Semifinals:
Plymouth defeated Kitchener 2-0 (Series tied 1-1)* Plymouth outshot Kitchener 45-26
Scott Wedgewood (G): 26 Save Shutout - 2nd Star

Its worth noting that Plymouth is going up against 18 year old, American goalie John Gibson who is a solid prospect for the Ducks (2/39 in 2011) and he was also a member of the USWJC team. This year he posted 2.75 GAA with a .928 SV% with a 21-10-0-0 record. He has a 1.99 GAA with a .953 SV% in the playoffs so far. Wedgewood through 8 playoff games has a 1.99 GAA with a .937 SV%.

Question: With the draft not too far away and many scouting services releasing their final rankings, should I move all that info into a "2012 NHL Draft" thread?

Anyway here are Central Scouting's Final Rankings:

North American Skaters
North American Goaltenders
European Skaters
European Goaltenders

With Nick Ebert taking a huge fall since last season, projected anywhere in between 3rd and 5th rounds, do we take a chance at him late? He is a Jersey kid and was highly touted last season. I think it would be a boom/bust pick like Merrill and Gelinas just slightly later and if he does pan out, we could have a studded blue line for years to come.

Yeah, he sure seems to. I'm really excited to see him hopefully getting time in Albany next year.
