Continues to tear it up with Prince George... Had 2 Goals last night (4 Goals 2 Assists in his last 2 Games this weekend against the Vancouver Giants)

35 Games 12 Goals 23 Assists 35 Points +6 (Leads the Team)

 

Heck of a year so far by the 19 year old.

In Holland we trust.

#8 in scoring among league defensemen. 

8th in the WHL?

lol

Yeah - he's nothing special...Go figure...It's why I don't have any faith in Holland, and the rest of the Wings front office anymore.

As a rookie. The top 7 have been in the league longer. This is his first year.

I'd be impressed if this were AHL numbers.

Sounds like another Brendan Smith in the making.

Not even close. Smith was an idiot. Cholowski is a smart player, not super highly skilled but uses his brains and works hard. We'll see, I'm not high on him yet but I'm content so far.

F. Michael....just try to look at this from an unbiased standpoint. The kid is a 19 year old rookie in the WHL. 35 games into his career and he is already 8th in scoring among D.

The WHL has 22 teams, 6 D roughly per team. That is 132 D-men in the league. How can 8 out of 132 be anything but a positive?

The fact that this achievement garners a response from you of "Yeah - he's nothing special...Go figure" should alone show you that you have an extreme negative bias towards the team right now.

Nobody is saying the kid is a guaranteed future Norris winner, and I think most here will admit this doesn't guarantee anything. But, what it does say is that he is doing exactly what he should be right now, and there is no reason for a negative response.

All that information aside though like I said he’s the only one among the top scorers that’s in his first WHL season. All the other top 7 ahead have been playing in the league a few years.

Most of the others are not much ahead by the way (a point or two) and some have played more games.

I'm actually not as worried about our defensive prospects as I was a year ago.  Saarijarvi and Hronek are playing well in the AHL.  Cholowski and Sambrook are playing well in juniors.  Hicketts is still a "maybe" to me, despite the feel good story.  If we hit high in the lottery this year and take another standout defender I'll feel really good about our puck moving defensemen going forward.

Saarijarvi and Hronek both outscoring Dahlin at the WJC right now

How does he compare to Jiri Fischer? Anyone know? Is there a good comparable?

Another shock... 2 more points from Cholowski last night (Goal and an assist) also was a +2, in a 6-5 OT Loss... 39 Points (13 Goals, 26 Assists) +9 in 37 games

 

6 Game Point Streak (10 Points in his last 4)

So why not pull him up to GR at this point?

Don't forget about my boy Sulak , top PPG D in the Finnish top league.

Because it's not allowed until he's 20 or played 4 years in the major juniors. It's the agreement with the NHL to protect the CHL.

Actually, since Cholowski wasn't playing in the OHL when he was drafted, that rule doesn't apply to him. I don't know if there's any rule about being moved mid-season though.

I guess it's slightly different situation due his year in college team and starting in the BCHL when drafted, but I imagine the 20 years old rule would kick in as soon as he signed on with a WHL team. Do have any link that says the rule doesn't apply to him?

The whole idea of the agreement is so that the CHL doesn't get players taken away mid season or a year early which could hurt revenue, or when they've used assets to draft of trade or whatever the case may be (I know that later doesn't apply to Cholo).

Dennis Chowloski is now 6th among defenseman points and 2nd in defenseman goals in the WHL. He must have seen your post.
