That Boston College hockey blog just tweeted that Miles Wood is going to return to Nobles for his senior season, so he wouldn't join BC until 2015-16 as a 20 year old freshman. He's a power forward prospect and those do take time so I suppose he's a real long term project.

Wednesday 3/5
QMJHL
Gatineau defeated Blainville-Boisbriand 6-4
Anthony Brodeur G: DNP
Season: 27 GP 12-11-0, 2.92 GAA, .886 SV%, 2 SO
 
WHL
Kelowna defeated Spokane 3-1
Damon Severson D: Assist, +1, 2 PIM (Slashing)
Season: 60 GP 14-44-58, +44, 59 PIM
 
Myles Bell RW: 2 Assists (1 PP), +1
Season: 65 GP 41-33-74, +26, 40 PIM
 
Also, apparently the plan is for Miles Wood to stay at Nobles for his Sr year but the option to "accelerate" so he can join BC next year is on the table, presumably if they lose Gaudreau to the pros.

Problem is that if he does take his senior season at Nobles, he's eligible to bounce from NJ's clutches after 2 years of college.

Wondering if the Devils are trying to get a handle on whether Bell makes Gelinas expendable. They seem to have a similar skill set (big shots that are useful on the powerplay) and substituting Bell for Gelinas would tend to alleviate the D log jam. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

I thought about this a few years ago. I will wait to see how accurate Bell's shot is from the point. I would rather a 4th liner also used as a PP specialist than a defensmen.

Blake Coleman has 18 goals in 23 games, if you translate that to NHL that is a .3 scoring rate which is a 20+ goal scorer at the moment.

He's had a great Jr year and is 22, do you think he goes pro or returns for his Sr year?

Is Coleman's conference competitive? 

It seems to be one of the better conferences. He plays in the newly formed NCHC which sort of replaced the now defunct CCHA (6 ex WCHA teams, 2 ex CCHA teams). It seems like a solid conference with St. Cloud St and North Dakota ranked in the top 10 nationally and with Nebraska Omaha just outside the top 20 for the USCHO.com poll. Both St. Cloud State and North Dakota are in the top 10 for the USA Today Poll. In terms of the Pairwise rankings 6 of the 8 NCHC teams are within the top 26. Miami is 40th in the Pairwise rankings and finished last in the NCHC standings and will have to take on St. Cloud State in the NCHC Quarterfinals so his season is likely to end this upcoming weekend.

 

Interesting stats: Miami is 10-11-2 when Coleman plays and just 2-8-1 without him. They are 6-4-1 when he scores and just 6-15-2 when he doesn't so it seems like he's a real difference maker for them.

 

To compare it to a weak conference, Pietila is in the restructured WCHA and they have just 3 teams in the top 25 for the Pairwise rankings.

Wow that's awesome then. Being on a weak team in a strong conference and putting up those numbers is nothing to sneeze at

Coleman's at 4+ shots a game which is nice but you just never know with this kind of career.  

 

4th line/PP specialists don't exist anymore and I'm not sure they ever did.

Miami score 2.82 goals per game, Coleman scores .78 goals per game. I don't believe he has anything left to prove in college, yes I believe he signs.

Coleman's at 4+ shots a game which is nice but you just never know with this kind of career.  

 

4th line/PP specialists don't exist anymore and I'm not sure they ever did.

Yea he probably still projects as a 3rd liner if he makes it.

Thanks for posting! Interesting that they have Santini and Severson ranked so close together. If I was to change anything on that list I'd move Kinkaid down and not include Wedgewood. Maybe even find a way to slip Coleman in there.

 

It's no secret that Wedgewood and Clermont have both had disappointing pro careers and Kinkaid has slipped as of late. I just wrote this post on potential undrafted free agent goalies from the NCAA and CHL. Ideally I'd like to see the Devils cut Clermont loose and move Wedgewood back to the ECHL and let the new guy battle it out with Kinkaid for playing time next year. A couple of guys that I have my eye on from that post:

 

Joel Rumpel (Wisconsin) Season Age: 22, JR, 6'3, 185
2013-14: 24 GP 18-4-1, 1.83 GAA, .937 SV%, 2 SO

Colin Stevens (Union) Season Age: 20, JR, 6'2, 175
2013-14: 28 GP 20-4-2, 2.02 GAA, .927 SV%, 5 SO
Career SV%: .925 SV% in 51 GP

C.J. Motte (Ferris State) Season Age: 22, JR, 6'0, 190
2013-14: 34 GP 24-7-3, 2.28 GAA, .925 SV%, 3 SO
Career SV%: .926 SV% in 81 GP

Jake Hildebrand (Michigan State) Season Age: 20, SO, 5'11, 183
2013-14: 30 GP 8-14-7, 2.41 GAA, .925 SV%, 2 SO
Career SV%: .927 SV% in 59 GP

-- Attended 2013 New Jersey Devils Prospect Camp and has carried a bad MSU team for 2 years.

Casey DeSmith (New Hampshire) Season Age: 22, JR, 6'0, 180
2013-14: 32 GP 17-14-0, 2.34 GAA, .922 SV%, 2 SO
Career SV%: .924 SV% in 92 GP
