Update...Holidays Over, Las Vegas and Brick Tournament
After a week away from "life", we are back from a much needed break from hockey and our other careers! With that said, it is now time to start setting up for the 2012-2013 hockey season which is still a while away but during the summer, we'll profile some of the top 98's and 99's to watch for the coming season and we'll 4also go league by league and preview the teams.
During this past week, there were a couple big tournaments taking place. For those of you who follow WEHP on twitter, you'll know that our final two stay stop on our trip through the mountains was in Edmonton - on the way home. While the "MRS." was out shopping, I had a chance to watch some of The Brick Invitational Super Novice Hockey Tournament. There was absolutely no ranking or scouting involved, just watched out of pure enjoyment. It was funny, the director of PPL of the Spokane Chiefs sent me a message while watching the tournament asking if I was actually scouting this age group and the answer was a resounding NO! With that said, it is interesting to look through the number of players in the first 14 year history of the event who made it to the NHL or who have played NCAA or made it to major junior or junior A.
Toronto will play Detroit in The Brick final today. Toronto defeated Vancouver in a semi-final yesterday and Detroit beat Winnipeg. The leading scorer in the tournament was Toronto's Logan Morrison, who had 9 goals and 5 assists in 6 games.
The Brick Breakdown
Major Junior/Junior "A" or NCAA = 534
- Works out to an average of 38.14 per year of The Brick Tournament who have played at a Junior, Junior "A" or NCAA level.
NHL Players = 63
- The Brick Tournament has seen 63 players make it to the NHL in the 14 years. That works out to 4.5 each year on average. So there was a good chance that those who watched this years tournament that you viewed 4 or 5 future NHL players.
NHL Draft Picks = 154
