72 points in an unfinished season? I call bulls***.

He played on a line with Landon Ferraro last year in Red Deer and looked good to the Red Wings, so they singed him to an off-season contract. He's one of those guys Holland refers to as "bonus picks", kind of like Brian Lashoff (Kingston, OHL). He had a decent season last year with 42 points in 72 games. When Landon went down with an injury early in the season (knee, I think, but someone can correct me here) it was assumed that Willie's numbers would drop, but as you can see.... 72 points over 57 games at the moment.
The most popular choice among the Red Wings as to who would volunteer to play goalie – several Panthers did in their game – was Brendan Smith.
 
"He's pretty competitive and he seems to be good at everything," Justin Abdelkader said. "He'd volunteer himself."
 
Babcock was a bit more hesitant about Smith. "Yeah, yeah, just work on getting out of your zone," Babcock said

No bulls*** at all. He's got great potential, especially for someone who went undrafted. Going to be interesting to see if they move him up to the AHL next year.

He plays in the WHL, 72 points is very possible.

And Jesusberg is correct.

72 in the WHL is like 42 in the AHL which is like 1 point seasons in the NHL. Yes?

Awesome. Seeing prospects do well and earn extensions is always good.
