Quick scan of some of the prospects after YST

After a 1-2-0 record at the “Young Stars Tourny” We give you an updated look at some of the Flames prospect based on what we had seen in the 3 games: Flames did go without their European prospects like Erixon, Bjorklund and Ortio.

Joey Leach- Smart hockey player, Joey showed he could become a good solid d-man at the NHL level with some proper guidance!
Chris Breen- decent I expected less. I was never a big fan of him but he showed he can play. I still don't view Breen as a quality prospect
Mitch Wahl- Came to play, I didn’t like his attitude during games in the past (juniors) but there is no doubt he is a solid prospect!
Greg Nemisz- Nothing spectacular but is a very sound positional player; he won’t flash and dash you but he uses his body very well. Greg had an ok “young stars tourney”
Jon Rheault- Had a phenomenal first game. Showed he will be a key player for the Heat this year.
Lanigan/Keetley/Irving- all 3 goalies did not look that good but that was expected in this tourney- personally Irving was the best of the 3. I do not believe Lanigan will receive a contract by the Flames.
Patrick Holland- could be a steal! Played well and made himself noticeable. Excited to see what he can do in the WHL this coming season
Bryan Cameron- I was the first to doubt him and complain about his skating- but he impressed me the most out of anyone! His skating still needs lots of work but this guy has a nack for shooting the puck. The Heat should benefit from his nose for the net.
Keith Seabrook-Best d-man for the Flames he is a very steady player. I expect him to make some noise come camp.
Max Reinhart- Clearly a playmaker and for being one of the youngest on the team he had a great tourney.
Giffen Nyren- Nyren will be invited to main camp!
TJ Brodie- Very solid prospect and had a great tourney. Very offensive minded and this kid can play! Needs some fine tuning on his defensive side. Flames management couldn't praise TJ enough!
