Calgary Hitmen 2010 Eligibles

Matt MacKenzie / D: Full profile

Tyler Fiddler / LW ('90): Last chance to grab this late bloomer before he's a free agent. All he does is help teams win wherever he goes. Excellent hockey sense and is a coaches kind of player. I'd argue a bit to grab this guy with a late pick, there's still some decent upside here. If he gets passed over (again), he'll probably have several camp invites.

Cody Sylvester / C: Grew a bit this year and has some good two-way skill. Competes despite his smallish size. Really turned it on in the playoffs, and that always counts for a lot. Someone could grab him late.

Cody Beach / RW: I could see someone grabbing this huge framed bruiser late. He's just a fighter, and not even a very good one at that. I might invite him to camp to drop the gloves with the other prospects a few times, but that's all he's going to do at rookie camp. I haven't seen any indication of anything remotely close to the sort of hands his brother has.

Other 2010s: John Lawrence, Justin Kirsch.

2011 Outlook: Mackenzie Royer, Peter Kosterman are eligible. Kosterman is very interesting, but very raw. Jaynen Rissling is a 2012.
