Yes Give This Prospect His Contract

Our friend Neate Sager over at Buzzing the Net wrote this about New York Ranger 2010 5th round pick Jason Wilson's efforts on Thursday night:

New York Rangers-drafted forward Jason Wilson has been on a point-a-game pace for about the last month and a half. Get the man a pro contract.

That was after Wilson of the Niagara IceDogs went 1-1-2 in a shootout loss. Wonder what the BTN folks say after a Friday night when Wilson was a one man wrecking crew?

Wilson scored 2 goals, set up another, was a +3 and then scored the only goal in the shootout period to earn the game's first star as the IceDogs defeated the Plymouth Whalers 6-5. Just like Thursday night, Wilson scored what looked like to be the winning goal at 15:40 of the 3rd period only to see the Whalers tie the game 50 seconds later.

Wilson's 3 points were the highlight of the Ranger prospect report which is right here

On the New York Islander side, if you did not get to watch Anders Lee (2009 6th) and his 9th ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on 13th ranked Miami of Ohio then you missed out on one great game.

Lee set up T.J. Tyann for the 3rd of his assists on the night to tie the game at 5-5 capping a 3rd period comeback for the Irish. Lee in fact had assists on both 3rd period goals in the comeback.

We do not know what more to say about this rock solid freshman who finds ways to impress us every time we see him. In this game he earned the 3rd star but what gets us is how for such a big power forward he has some of the softest hands we have seen in years.

It was a mostly good night for the Islander prospects starting right here
