File This Away For June
Last night the scouts got an opportunity to put the class of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft to the test in skills testing in conjunction with tonight's CHL Top Prospects Game. Ben Maxwell, a center out of Kootenay in the WHL, was the big winner, no doubt improving his stock by winning the 60' and 150' dash and the puck control test. File these away. The Lightning routinely like to take players who are superior skaters and these tests are very revealing about CHL prospect's real skating proficiencies.
