Combine updates

According to there are 35 skaters and 7 goalies from the QMJHL listed for the the 2008 draft. Mathieu Brodeur, a defenseman and otherwise sweet-little-big-thing from the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles is listed at #69 overall, while Joel Champagne a centreman from Chicoutimi is listed at #73.

According to TSN, here is how the boys are faring at this weekend's NHL combine:

"Mathieu Brodeur of Cape Breton also looked like he was here to try out for the Raptors. Brodeur and Myers almost hit the top of the vertical jumping apparatus."

"In the third group, Joel Champagne of Chicoutimi looked good physically. His body-type would project well at the pro level."

Also, isn't this just too kind and totally awesome for the Kitchener players- "Mikkel Boedker (ranked 11th by CSB) was missing from the seventh workout group. He is in the Bahamas on a vacation with the rest of the Kitchener Rangers. They were apparently rewarded with the trip by the team owner after winning the OHL title and reaching the Memorial Cup final."
