Welcome back to my weekly Prospect Ramblings. Some weeks are structured, some are a little more loose and random thoughts. This week is the latter. We’re just going to go over some of the thoughts from the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and the early week in the prospect world. From the junior hockey to the NHL, the prospect world never stops.

Cale Makar is pretty solid. Yes, that’s a bit of an understatement. With a point in each of his first five games, he has helped push the Colorado Avalanche to a 5-0-0 record, making them the last undefeated team in the NHL. Makar has the opportunity to tie the record for consecutive games at six tonight (Wednesday, October 16th, 2019) when the Avalanche face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He has held his own the defensive end of the ice and has looked as advertised offensively and in transition thus far in the early goings of the season.
