It seems with Focht we can't lose. Worst case he turns into an AHLer with the ability to fill in at the NHL level. Best case he turns into a regular NHL'er.

Win/win. 

With Hayton likely unavailable I wouldn't be surprised to see both these kids with Team Canada if Focht keeps it up.  .

So more likely making the NHL, but the ceiling isn't so high. That makes sense. But I'm still rooting for the guy. 

Fichte, but the way, is not an overage - he is 19. Overages are normally defined in major juniot as 20 year olds.

Not all from the CHL but just looking at Tanner Pearson and I checked some random players from the 2011 draft, a nice list of 19/20 year olds drafted. We'd be doing well if Focht got as many games as any of the below chaps who are still active and should all add to their numbers....

 

 

Drafted 2019 - Carson Focht - Draft age 19 - NHL games ???? - Drafted out of WHL

Drafted 2011 - Ondrej Palat - Draft age 20 - NHL games 427 - Drafted out of QMJHL

Drafted 2012 - Tanner Pearson - Draft age 20 - NHL games 388 - Drafted out of OHL

Drafted 2011 - Ryan Dzingel - Draft age 19 - NHL games 268 - Drafted out of USHL

Drafted 2011 - Josh Manson - Draft age 20 - NHL games 335 - Drafted out of BCHL

Drafted 2011 - Andrew Shaw - Draft age 20 - NHL games 504 - Drafted out of OHL

Drafted 2011 - Jean-Gabriel Pageau - Draft age 19 - NHL games 368 - Drafted out of QMJHL

Drafted 2011 - Matt Nieto - Draft age 19 - NHL games 402 - Drafted out of NCAA

Drafted 2011 - Brandon Saad - Draft age 19 - NHL games 530 - Drafted out of OHL

The Hitmen lost 6-4 but Focht finished the game with a goal and an assist, 13/25 on faceoffs. Named third star for his efforts. 
 

Now has 9pts (4G, 5A) in 5 games, averaging 4 shots per game.  Right now he’s putting up production worthy of a second rounder B).

If you mean Focht is the same age right now as Lind and Gadj were in their last year in juniors, then yes.  He is not the same age as they were in the 2018-2019 season.  He's a 2000 birthday and those two are 1998s, so they're two years apart.

 

Focht was passed over once in the draft, so this is essentially his D+2 season.  But he's not an overager -- those are 20 year olds, of which a CHL team can only have three.  Focht is 19 years old.  He's the same age as guys who were drafted in 2018 and playing their last year in the CHL -- such as Ty Dellandrea, Akil Thomas, Serron Noel or our very own Jett Woo.  He's the same age as Cody Glass (1999 birth date) was last year when he was finishing his fourth season in the Dub.

You might want to check the months they were born and consider when the cutoff date for the draft.  He is an overager with Calgary and if he makes WJC team he will also be considered an over-ager there as well.

Is he eligible for Utica?  We could use a centre of his talents there.

Too bad.  It sounds like he’s too good for Junior.

He would be eligible to join Utica at the end of this season if the timing worked out though.
