Prospect Ramblings – College Awards, FA’s, and Signings plus CHL points leaders – March 15 2018

Pat Quinn







Welcome back to another Thursday ramblings for yours truly. Now that I have finished my top five prospects on an NHL team per division series (also I kind of butchered some of it), it is time to get back into the thick of current prospects…. And by that apparently I meant talk about the NCAA a bunch, enjoy!


Let’s get to it!




The ten finalists for this year’s Hobey Baker Award have been announced. Here are the candidates:




  • Matthew Galajda, G, Cornell (FA)



  • Dylan McLaughlin, F, Canisius (FA)


  • Cale Morris, G, Notre Dame (FA)



  • Jimmy Schuldt, D, St. Cloud State (FA)



  • C.J. Suess, F, Minnesota State (WPG) because of course Winnipeg has a prospect up for the Hobey Baker award



Adam Gaudette is the points leader of the crew making him the favorite. Do not rule out Donato who had to cut his season short to play in the Olympics where he put up six points, five of them goals, for team USA in five games


All three goalie free agents have insane numbers so I cannot see one of them winning the ward of the others


Dylan Sikura has also had a pretty stellar season so I would say he has a good chance as well to win the award. There is no run-away favorite this year for the Hobey Baker
