Regina Pats 2010 Eligibles

Jordan Weal / C: Full profile

Brandon Davidson / D: I usually like late bloomers who come out of nowhere, but this guy's skating bothers me too much. Has big trouble with pivots. But he's got really good hockey sense and is a very good puck mover. Probably goes way higher than I like, but if somehow he lasted until the 5th round, I might be interested.

Jason Gardiner / C: Guess Bob Tory got tired of waiting for this guy to figure it out, now it's Regina's turn. Remember being very intrigued by this guy when I first saw him at 15, but the one quality had then (good straight line speed) is still about the only thing he offers.

Tyler Parker / LW: If baseball has quadruple-A players, what do we call a guy too good for the NAHL but not quite good enough for major junior? That's what this guy is so far. But there's still time and enough natural skill here to turn into a decent junior player.

Other 2010s: Dominick Favreau, Andrew Rieder, Mitch Spooner.

2011 Outlook: Myles Bell, Tyler Borstmayer, Dawson Guhle. Bell is at least a 3rd/4th rounder right now, with good mobility and some skill. Borstmayer and Guhle are also worth watching.
