Prospects roster announced

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League has placed four players on the Canada West squad that will play in the CJHL Top Prospects Game, which takes place December 7-9 in Winkler, Manitoba.

1992 F Trevor Cameron (Mission BC) of the Notre Dame Hounds, 1991 Clarke Breitkreuz (Springside SK) of the Yorkton Terriers, 1991 D Lee Christensen (Winnipeg MB) of the Melfort Mustangs, and 1991 F Andrew Johnston (Saskatoon SK) of the Flin Flon Bombers have been selected as part of a twenty man roster that will suit up against the top prospects from Canada East.

The Klippers' Josh Thorimbert has been left off the roster for the prospects game. Thorimbert was the Klippers' best shot at making the roster and in this blogger's opinion should have.

I understand Pentiction Vees goaltender Sean Bonar making the squad. He has a 12-4-0 record with 2 shutouts a 2.51 GAA and a Sv % of 0.916.

Canmore Eagles goaltender Sam Brittain is the other goaltender and I'm not so convinced. Brittain has a 13-9-2 record with 1 shutout, a GAA of 3.05 and a 0.905 Sv %. Very good numbers but I'd go with Thorimbert.

Josh has a 13-5-1 record with one shutout, a 2.83 GAA and a 0.912 Sv %. I think it's a shame that the young Klippers' netminder will not be in the game. I hope this does not affect the young goaltender and he continues to play the amazing hockey he has so far with the Jr. K's. If he does, he has a very bright future in this game.

My understanding is that it's only for players eligible for the 2010 draft. Thorimbert's birthday misses the cutoff by about three weeks.

If that's not the case, then yes, it's a travesty.

So would he be too young for this year's draft?

Josh Lewis said...

Yep, he is not eligible until 2011.
