    I don't know what he said to Jack, but we all remember what he said about the program he was developing in.

    They like some college programs and like kids to spend some time developing physically there, but ultimately four years in college is not the best route for most and with the way free agency works you'd like to get those kids under your direct control earlier than later to hopefully accelerate their path to the NHL.

    Haha, I knew if I brought that up, I'd be reminded of that as well. No escaping it!

    Is Niederberger (sp) in the Kings system ? Or was he just an invite?

    Nope. He only had a 1 year Monarchs contract and just signed a multi-year contract, a few weeks ago, to play in the DEL in Germany.

    Don't forget, Mersch, Dowd and Gravel all just spent 4 years in college before they joined Manchester, so it's not unheard of in this organization.

    Forbort also.

    It seems for Dean it depends on the school they are going to. If it is one that he believes they will get the proper training and development he has no problem giving them time to develop without needing to use a contract spot.

    Default The Hockey Writers Darkhorse Goalie Prospects

    Anatoliy Metter, The Hockey Writers (2/25/14)
    Alec Dillon (Victoria Grizzlies – BCHL)

    Playing in the BCHL, Alec Dillon has been very impressive in the 20 games (2.47 GAA, .918 Save Percentage) that he has played for the Victoria Grizzlies. Even though Dillon was ranked no. 26 in CSS’s midterm rankings, he is a tall (6’4.75″) and lanky netminder that NHL teams would absolutely covet. Despite the fact that Dillon has a frame to fill out, the upside for the young netminder cannot be mistaken by anyone. According to Robert Ward – a scout for the New York Islanders – Dillon has good hands and rebound control but could use a little bit of work on his lateral movements. Dillon will certainly have aspects of his game that he will have to fine tune over the next several years, but if the goalie continues his solid play with the Grizzlies for the remainder of the BCHL hockey season, then the big goaltender will likely be a very good darkhorse option for hockey fans to follow coming into draft day.
