Colton Yellow Horn Discussion
It might be a tad premature, but I have a feeling this guy might be a diamond in the rough for us. Thinking along the lines of a Theo Fleury type of player. He had a lot of success in the WHL but never really put it together until just recently in the ECHL. He was on pace for 55 goals and only one player has done that since the 00-01 season. He has played 2 games for Manchester and has 3 points. When watching him play, you get a sense of the determination he brings to his game. The dude has a drive to score goals. I'm excited to follow his progress in Manchester and see how far he can go...
Good article on the guy:

Nice story. Hope you are right.

Yellow Horn was shredding the ECHL (Take that for what it's worth). I'm very interested in how well he does in Manchester. Do you watch/attend monarchs games? If so keep us updated every 10 games or so. :D

The guy had been a revelation for sure for the Reign this year. Hope for the best... he's still a verrrrrry longshot, but truly a fun player to watch, 5'6" standing on a phone book.

Well, still an incredibly long shot to ever end up on an NHL roster, but I'll certainly be pulling for him.

I'm going to the Reign game on Saturday and was really hoping to see him play. I'm bummed, but good for him on getting called to Manchester.

Does he even have a Kings contract?
