As far as I know, Ken Kal will have an audio stream again. Anyone know if the Pens will be streaming a video feed anywhere? I haven't seen anything yet...


I like this lineup a lot, but I do wish Blashill would get over this experiment with Glendening in the top 6. I'd much rather see Jurco up there. The only other thing I would change is switching Smith and Jensen... 

2015-16 Prospect Watch

24 September 2015 - 09:42 PM

Title is self explanatory, but I figured this would be a good spot to keep tabs on all of our prospects either playing Junior, College or Europe. There's always a thread dedicated to Griffins prospects, but here we can keep tabs on the likes of Evgeny Svechnikov (Cape Breton Screaming Eagles - QMJHL), Adam Marsh (Saint John Sea Dogs - QMJHL), Vili Saarijarvi (Flint Firebirds - OHL), Dominic Turgeon (Portland Winterhawks - WHL) and Axel Holmstrom (Skelleftea AIK - SHL), among others...

Saarijarvi played his first game with the Firebirds tonight and he got one assist.

Holmstrom has played two games so far and also has one assist.

The player I'm most excited for is obviously Svechnikov, and I'll definitely be watching quite a few Screaming Eagles games this season.

Anyway, anyone with any updates, stats, highlights, insight, please post it here and I'll be doing the same.

Kenney Morrison

11 November 2014 - 08:36 AM

Morrison is a 22 year old free agent defenseman out of Western Michigan, originally from Lloydminster, Alberta. He's 6'2", 205 lbs, shoots right, has a cannon of a shot from the blueline, and is an incredible skater. He's a solid two-way defenseman but his biggest asset is his offensive game and he's a huge threat on the power-play. All signs point to this guy being a stud, and the perfect fit for the Wings, but it looks like the Oilers may be the frontrunners right now, being only a couple hours away from his hometown.


He played with DeKeyser a couple years ago at WMU, maybe he can lure him in. I know we have a ton of capable defensemen in Grand Rapids but I don't think any other than Ouellet are as polished as Morrison. The guy in our system that resembles him the most is Sproul and he's certainly not ready yet.


I hope Kenny makes some phone calls on Kenney. You can never have too many assets. If he is the real deal and he can walk on as DeKeyser did 2 years ago, we then have some assets that we could turn around and trade. Maybe Ouellet can be packaged in a trade to get a top 6 winger...
