Anyway, I guess we shouldn't read too much into the great season he had as a 21-year old playing against boys this year, but I just wonder if he might not surprise a few people and be NHL ready pretty soon. Or maybe he spends 2-3 years on the farm. But I'm sure thrilled to have a guy like this in the system who has the potential to centre our third or fourth line fairly soon. Who was the last third line centre we drafted? Kesler, I guess, but he was always destined to be more than that. Who else? Artem Chubarov comes to mind. Dave Scatchard, maybe.
I also wanted to say: What is with CDC and its failure to have current stats on Canucks prospects? I mean, we just sign this kid, and the latest CDC stats on him are from 2010-2011?
Then you go to the "In the System" section and you get nothing on any of our prospects. How hard is it to have updated statistics on these guys? I mean Jordan Schroeder could start the year centring our second line and you go to his profile and there's nothing from his three years at college, his three years of World Junior dominance, or his first two years as a Canucks' farmhand! What gives?!
Alright, sorry for the rant. Looking forward to seeing Friesen wreak havoc in a Canucks' uni!
And since CDC just gives us a press release, here's Canucks' Army on the Friesen signing:
