Thankfully we have plenty of friends who made sure we got all the information on what was an extremely busy night of hockey. The best thing about hockey though is you never know who is going to wind up your heroes or your goats.
We are happy for Toews as he was showing all the signs of breaking out offensively for the Wheat Kings before he got hurt. The rest of the night was mostly up with some down but here the Islander prospect report is right here.
On the Ranger side, it was a very mixed night as there was good news, bad news, so-so news and the unexpected return of Dan Maggio (2009 6th) for the Guelph Storm.
We had several choices for the Ranger prospect first star but in the end, Max Campbell (2005 5th) of the Western Michigan Broncos sneaked in and took the honors with a goal and an assist as the Broncos came from behind and defeated in-state rivals Michigan State 4-3.
Still as we also enjoyed seeing that Brandon Dubinsky scored 2 goals to reach double figures in the Ranger's win adding more fuel to our argument that the Ranger's best draft picks have been their 2nd round ones; the rest of the Ranger report can be found here.
