FC Profile:

NAME: CALVIN PETERSEN
POSITION: GOALTENDER
TEAM: WATERLOO
LEAGUE: USHL
VITALS: 6-2 / 180

NOTES: Petersen is a tall, slender goaltender who possesses good footwork, strong focus
through traffic and shows the ability to make desperation saves. He will have time to physically
mature and develop his form at the college level next season.

Future Considerations Profile:

ANTHONY FLORENTINO
POSITION: Defenseman
SHOOTS: Right
TEAM: South Kent (USHS)
BORN: January 30, 1995
VITALS: 6’-1” / 195 Lbs
STATS: 58 GP 20 G 30 A 50 PTS N/A PIM


SCOUTING REPORT: Florentino is a solid two-way defender what has some serious upside. He skates well but could improve his first step and short range lateral agility. He has a solid frame to him and uses it in all aspects of the game. A ‘grab the puck and clear the zone’ type,

Florentino doesn’t project to play with much offensive creativity at the next level; a simple meat and potatoes style. He has the ability to shoot a pass up the ice to his forwards but will not likely be one to carry it through the neutral zone himself very often. He has a bomb from the point but will need to work on getting it off quicker. He does his best work deep in his own zone. A hard working, all-in every shift player that plays the game with a high level of energy. He is a physical player who sometimes looks like he hits opponents to hurt them. He uses his size well to separate the puck from the puck carrier and quickly turn the play back the other way.

Florentino shows a very good compete level and solid work ethic. A team leader both on the ice and off it.
His game -- no matter the potential he shows -- is extremely raw and will need ample time to develop. The Providence College commit will get plenty of time to round out his game. He has the potential to wear a letter at the next level.

NHL POTENTIAL: Top 6 Two-Way Defenseman

He had 52 points in 63 odd games as a D man.  That can't be right.  Something is off.

BUF selects Florentino. Dman with good strong frame. Has a big shot, can move the puck. Defense and skating a concern.

He does his best work on D according to the previous report and is nasty.  Lots penalty minutes on all the teams he plays on.  Not bad.

Future Considerations Profile:

SEAN MALONE
POSITION: Centre
SHOOTS: Left
TEAM: Under-18 (US NTDP)
BORN: April 30, 1995
VITALS: 6’-0” / 185 Lbs
STATS: 54 GP 16 G 16 A 32 PTS 19 PIM

SCOUTING REPORT: Malone is a responsible two-way forward with decent feet but will not blow by many defenders with his just average speed. He has decent mobility but lacks jump in his first couple of steps. He compensates by keeping his feet moving. He plays a very strong two-way game, is strong on the cycle and poised with the puck despite not having high-end dangles. He’s not overly physical but does use his body to protect the puck and earn space.

His value offensively is seen in his ability to read the ice and distribute the puck, although many of the plays he makes are of the small space touch passes to open teammates variety. Malone isn’t a high end playmaker - the type to draw defenders in, slow the play down, etc. - but his ability is respectable. In terms of goal scoring, he’ll go to the crease area looking for pay dirt. He has a decent wrist shot that has a quick release and can put the puck away. He’s solid defensively as he consistently backchecks as well as applying consistent pressure to the offensive attack with back pressure. A pretty safe player- he’ll make the NHL because he is so responsible and dependable albeit it likely in a bottom-six/checking capacity.

NHL POTENTIAL: Bottom 6 Two-Way Forward

I do believe so... http://www.elitepros...p?player=118664

I like that we could grab the two local kids and I don't think they reached on either and they took them right where any team should have.

@coreypronman
BUF selects Malone. NY kid. Good offensive guy. Not dynamic, but there's skill to his game. Little small. Guy to revisit in a year or 2.

@coreypronman
BUF selects Possler. Liked him as a U18 last year, faded off the radar with no WJC play. Avg size has above-average offensive upside.


Round 7, Pick #189
@BillHoppeNHL
#Sabres Eric Locke from Saginaw of OHL. #Buffalo

There's a whole lot of Hockey East in this draft class.  Two Notre Dame, 1 PC... and then the non-Hockey East Harvard.  I will have plenty of opportunities to see all four of them in the upcoming years.  That always makes those games a bit more interesting.

Is this a way to get some of the prospects to be familiar with each other as they grow in the system (before they're in the system?)

Much of what I see. Get guys familiar with each other.  Even partners for Grigorenko and Armia.  Build a new core.

Eric Locke will be 20 by the Fall and is AHL eligible.  What's the odds on
Locke, Logan Nelson, & Brady Austin playing in Rochester this year?  The
Amerks defence depth chart looks thin, even if Ristolainen players there
this year.  Could/would Brady Austin sign an Amerks only contract a la
Fred Roy last year?  



McNabb?, Ristolainen??
Jerome Gauthier-LeDuc, MacKenzie, Crawford

That's only 5 players, 6 if you add Brady Austin.


Will the Amerks resign Roy?   Luke Adam if resigned is an over-ager, if
I'm not mistaken.  MacCormick would make 2 over-agers with more depth
needed for the Amerks.

Gustav Possler had 1g and 2a in Sweden's 4-3 win over USA Blue today.

Possler has the very real potential to be our sleeper pick of the 5th round.

He dropped him like a stack of wet dishes!

Actually the most interesting thing about that play to me isn't the hit.  It is the way Possler positions himself.  After he loses the puck he tracks it all the way down the ice.  Still clearly needs time to grow but... Possler is my Catenacci, I think he makes the Sabres in the future.

Just in case anybody's watching, here's prep school highlights of 5'9 190 Anthony Chighisola. This New England kid is tough, talented and comes from hockey stock. Despite coming back from a knee injury, he might make somebody look like a genius for taking a chance on him.
