The NHL has released it's preliminary rankings for the 2010 draft and some Moose are on there.
Mooseheads import defenceman Konrad Abeltshauser is listed as #13 amongst QMJHL skaters. I hope he is excited but not so excited that he jumps around. That might aggravate his knee injury.
While Mathieu Corbeil may be sad that he lost the CHL goaltender of the week award to Calvin Pickard of the Seattle Thunderbirds, he can be reassured in his recent success by being ranked the # 2 goalie in the QMJHL. Yes, he's ahead of Maxime Clermont. That is sooooo cookie worthy.
Corbeil had previously also been listed as a player to watch in the QMJHL.
Hockey's future has also released the ISS top 30 with a list of rising and falling NHL hopefuls. Corbeil and Hannay are both RISING.
Mathieu Corbeil-Theriault, G -- Halifax Mooseheads
Height: 6.05.7 Weight: 186
Corbeil has had four outstanding games in a row for the last-place Halifax Mooseheads, three have been wins where he was named the first star of the game. Seems to be turning corner; positioning is better, battling, better rebound control, and flashing a quick glove.
Sawyer Hannay, RD -- Halifax Mooseheads
Height: 6.04 Weight: 190
Tough and respected. Word is already circulating that there is a new heavyweight champ in the QMJHL after young Hannay went toe-to-toe with Ashton Bernard in Cape Breton. Not afraid of anybody. Team-first guy. Teammates love him. Any NHL team selecting after the fifth or sixth round looking for character will find it in aces with this kid.
