it really seems that he has pretty soft hands for a tough guy. in the first game of the season he had a goal, 2 helpers and was +3. i know it is only juniors, but not to bad for a guy who is supposed to be the designated enforcer for the wings in the near future.

ps: sorry for all enforcer fans, but no fight this time, not even a single PM, but i´m pretty sure it will come

Funnily enough was coming in here to make a thread on him!

Very good start to the season for Mitchell with 3 points and +3. thumbup.gif

Not too shabby indeed. thumbup.gif Who knows, maybe the Wings have a future home-grown enforcer in their hands.
Thank You TeeMan

I doubt he'll become and enforcer to be honest. I expect him to be Brendan Shanahan part 2. He'll do his fair share of fights but I think his frame wont allow him to be big enough to be a deterant and still be agile.

Callahan has 3 goals, 7 assists for 10 points in 10 games, with 25 PIM. He also leads his team in plus/minus, with a +6.

Not too bad.

I see him becoming more of a Darcy Tucker in his prime. Small guy who can chip in on the board and is ridiculously feisty. I see him fihgting more then Darcy did though

Did you notice that like May with the Wings, Mitchell has changed his # to 24 as well.
"What are you guys doing?" Reggie Dunlop
"Putting on the foil coach" Jeff Hanson
"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop

13 points in 16 games to go along with 5 fights. I really really am starting to like this prospect, he could end up being a late round steal. Anyone else see a Darcy Tucker in the making with this kid?

He's slowed down a bit, but certainly looks like he will top his totals of the year before (he had 14 goals last year, this year he already has 7). Most of his fights can be found on YouTube too!

All of them from this season can on both hockeyfights and dropyourgloves wink.gif


I had also noted his scoring slump recently, but so far tonight in 22minutes of the game gone, he has 2 goals and 2 assists.

What scoring slump biggrin.gif

Hes managed 22 penalty minutes in 2 periods of hockey so far tonight. Sweeeet.

2 fighting majors, as well as the 2+10 instigator package for his second altercation. CALLAHAN RULEZ!!1

One of his many fights this season. He is undefeated thus far with 8 wins and 3 draws, and also has 10 goals and 19 assists in 37 games. Not bad considering hes spent 98 minutes of the season in the penalty box!

None whatsoever. I cant watch the games, only the fights that get posted. He seems to have far better balance during fights then last season if thats any help.

Yeah I'm really liking this draft pick. This kid is such a gamer, he's under 6 feet but will fight anyone. He doesn't pick spots and fight just people his size. I'm sure you like this pick to eh uk you seem to be one of the few that get it around here.

The goal scoring improvement could be an indication that his skating has improved but thats just a guess.

This is indeed my favourite pick along with Tatar and Ferraro in many years.

Really excited to see what this kid can do in the future. If he can find any kind of a consistent scoring touch, and play with a little discipline, he could be a huge asset to this team for years to come. Excited to see how he fares as he bulks up, too. Reminds me of a Rick Rypien type of guy.

Rick Rypien is a great comparison I tihk the way that Callahan takes on anyone of all sizes is alot like Rick. If Callahan is close to being the fighter Rypien(Mitch is having loads of practice) then I will be ecstatic.

A goal and an assist tonight along with 14 penalty minutes...not bad. Hes on course to double his point totals from last season.
