Four Flames prospects face-off this morning in a Canada/US rematch. Johnny Gaudreau, Pat Sieloff and Jon Gillies for the red, white and blue versus Tyler Wotherspoon for the Canucks.
Gaudreau had the lowest draft rank of the four (4th round), but is currently the biggest name. The BC star got off to a slow start, but has managed five points in his last two games, includinga hat trick versus the Czechs. In the games I’ve seen, Gaudreau had a number of chances but no finish, so it’s good to see the puck start bouncing his way.
Wotherspoon, Sieloff and Gillies aren’t as quite as integral as Gaudreau currently, although Wotherspoon has become a regular fixture on the Canadian blueline.
The first match between these clubs was close fought but ended in Canada’s favor. This one should be a good one.
