Getting Ready For the Weeken

As we get ready for another weekend of action for the Prospects just Bobby Sanguinetti was in action on Thursday evening. However it was not one of Sanguinetti's better evenings as his Brampton Battalion dropped a game they should have won 4-2 to the Kingston Frontenacs.

Sanguinetti was scoreless but his Battalion team played a bad game defensively as Sanguinetti wound up a -3 for the evening.

It was a team wide bad effort for the Battalion as they let a Frontenac team that is 15 games under 500 do as they please with odd man rushes and solid scoring chances all night long.

Hockey 101 teaches that you must not overlook any team you are going to play and this is what the Battalion was guilty. Knowing the track record of Battalion coach Stan Butler, the Battalion will not repeat this mistake on Saturday when they face Marc Staal's younger brother Jared and his Sudbury Wolves.

Looking ahead to the Weekend

Friday evening if you have CSTV you can get looks at 2 Ranger prospects, first at 5:30 EDT/2:30 PDT you can catch the replay of Carl Hagelin's Michigan Wolverines taking on Max Campbell's Western Michigan Broncos.

At 8 PM EDT/5 PM PDT, Hagelin will lead his top ranked Michigan Wolverines as they host number 8 Notre Dame live. It will be a very good test for the Wolverines as they try to win their
8th straight game.

Friday also will have Tomas Zaborsky and the Saginaw Spirit taking on Jared Staal and the Sudbury Wolves.

In the QMJHL, all 3 Ranger prospects will be in action but we expect Antoine Lafleur to be the back up but the stories there will be can David Skokan continue to score and will Ryan Hillier be able to build on his lead as current prospect scoring leader.

In the college ranks, Max Campbell and his Western Michigan Broncos travel to Bowling Green trying to rebound from the beating they took from Michigan

Danny Hobbs and his Ohio Junior Bluejackets look to extend their franchise record 4 game winning streak as they travel to Tri-City for a weekend series.

Eric Hunter is expected to return to action as his University Of Alberta Golden Bears head to Calgary to face their rival Calgary Dinos.

Finally we wanted to direct your attention to a blog being kept by Michigan Tech (Jordan Foote) assistant coach Chris Tok over at It is a blog being kept by 4 assistant hockey coaches as their teams fight for a shot at the NCAAs.
