Check out this goal by Wings' prospect and current Barrie Colt Andreas Athanasiou. I don't know much about the kid, anyone have any idea how he projects?

Supposedly he's got Helm's speed but with better hands.  He's also apparently quite strong on his skates with insane lower body strength.  The biggest knock on him that I've read is that he doesn't play a team game and tends to try and do everything himself.  Also, early on there were some questions about his attitude that seem to have been taken care of. 

 

He's not scoring like Mantha or anything, but he definitely has top six upside and almost certainly top nine.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

the kid finished 5th overall in the OHL scoring and 2nd in goals with 49. 

I cant remember the last time the Wings had 2 legit scoring forwards at the same time coming thru the ranks.

Without Mantha tearing up the Q, we would all be drooling over AA's output this year, we have alot to look 

forward to in the coming years.

Not scoring like Mantha?   He went 49-46-95 in 65 games....that's pretty impressive.

I know, that was the point.  Mantha's output is absurd.

Mantha - 57GP, 57-63-120 

 

different leagues and the Q is a higher scoring league so it's hard to compare, but that's 25 more point and 12 less games. No point to compare, really, I just wanted to post mantha's totals because it's exciting to possibly have 2 goal scorers in the system

Nice! so is that what a Helm and Bertuzzi love child would look like?

hmmmm.

 

I dont want to soil the video and say what he did.

 

but...

 

I think if he tried those types  of moves in the nhl, it would become part of a general managers meeting like the spinorama move.

 

I dont think many goal tenders would take kindly to that move either.

I don't want to belabor the point...but I'm gonna.   When you say he's not scoring like Mantha or anything..tht's like saying Andre Drummond isn't tall like Manute Bol or anything. Fine...Drummond isn't 7-5, but he is 7ft and that's really fricking tall.    Maybe it's the "or anything" part that seems off.  To me, 95 pts in an arguably tougher league  is "anything"...  :)

 

Whatever the case, they're both exciting  prospects with top six potential.

Creative goal for sure and I'm definitely high on Athanasiou but that's during a skills comp and it's clear the goalie isn't even trying...

 

Nonetheless I can't wait for this kid to turn pro.

That wasn't recently was it?  I recall seeing it in years past.

That video is hilarious if you ignore the shooter and just watch the goalie.  The goalie looks like hes just standing there daydreaming, and then just trips and falls down to his right.

 

While a neat move, the shootout goal would be a bit more impressive if the goalie didn't look like they just grabbed some random person off the street who never played or watched hockey before and dressed them and put them in goal, lol.

What's amazing about that video is I didn't even notice he put it through his legs until watching it like 10 times.

This one wasn't in a skills competition.

Athanasiou scored his team's only goal in the Barrie Colts' 4-1 loss to North Bay in the OHL playoffs but it indeed one for the highlight reels.
