For your viewing pleasure: CHL Plays of the Week

Pretty thin for 2011 NHL draft candidates, but here are links to the CHL video Plays of the Week.

OHL highlights have only one player, and he's a sleeper/longshot draft candidate in Guelph Storm forward Cody McNaughton. McNaughton is an Oct. '92 birthdate meaning this is the first year he's draft eligible. Pretty play from him, but it's only his 9th goal in 46 games. Of course, anytime you use AC/DC in your highlight clips, I'm full on board with that. Beats the techno stuff the WHL used.

Here's the link to the OHL highlight vid.

Ove to the WHL, Marcel Noebels is the only 2011 draft candidate who scores on the clips. Noebels, as you may recall, is a German forward with good size and offensive capabilities, but was passed over in 2010. He had a decent enough WJC that he could get another look, but is a bit of a perimeter guy and some NHL scouts have used the kiss of death "soft" tag on him with me. We'll see if he does enough with the Thunderbirds to get a late-round flyer.

Here is the WHL highlight video link.

Moving onto the QMJHL, we have a couple of passed-over guys in Slovak winger Marek Hrivik and his Moncton teammate Alex Saulnier on the highlight film. And check out the Tomas Jurco assist to Michael Kirkpatrick, too. Pretty goal, nice pass from Jurco. Might have missed a couple of guys-- my French isn't so hot, so if I did, apologies...as they say in the Spartacus tv series.

Here are the highlight plays from the 'Q'

  1. The goal at about 1:45 in the Q video was scored by draft eligible Victor Provencher of PEI Rocket, I believe.
