Martinook had trade value. Garland doesn't.
Just thought I'd post this goal by Mackenzie Entwistle from last night.
Throughout the playoffs he has been an excellent two-way forward, which is exactly his style. Has been huge for the PK at crucial times and back-checks well. So far he has 8 points (3G, 5A) in 11 games and has been on the third line centering between Matthew Strome and either Will Bitten or Isaac Nurse.
Thanks for posting this @Canadian Game.
His production is up from last year considerably. I expect to see another jump next season when he gets more time and responsibility.
Yep, I want to see what type of points he can put up when he's getting consistent PP time and on one of the top 2 lines.
Good to see Entwistle have a productive D+1 year. Still not sure if he can become more than a third line two way winger, but that’s still a useful player and a fine outcome for a third round puck.
Glad to share.
Next season should be a good one for Entwistle. I'd expect more production and development. Hamilton will be rebuilding as some players will graduate at the end of this season. Trading some of the better players for picks and prospects will likely be a priority. I'd expect him to be on the top line, although he could be on the second line. It depends on what happens with a couple of other players. Regardless of which line Entwistle plays on, increased minutes is likely, and Hamilton will still have good players to play on his line. If he is still with Hamilton at the Christmas break, I'd expect him to be traded to a contender by the trade deadline in early January.
Hamilton is in the OHL finals against #1 CHL ranked Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds. Winner of the OHL best of 7 final advances to the Memorial Cup.
Tonight was game 1 and Hamilton won 4-3 in OT. Entwistle had 2 goals including the OT winner!

He's looked good at Memorial Cup. Projects as a bottom 6 big C. Needs a contract.
That balls to the wall type hustle proving to be very successful in Vegas. Welcome style in AZ!
Tucson next year?
I’d leave him in junior another year. Let him be the man.
Exactly. Just because you can turn pro doesn’t mean you should. I HATE rushing guys. Let them develop skills in junior. You should move up when you have nothing left to learn and not before. I hate what we did to Crouse as much as what it cost us.
He isn't even eligible for the AHL is he?
still only 18 right now. Not eligible for Tuscon for another year.
Well there you go again. I've never seen anyone so consumed by hatred of what he perceives as reality. A perception that can never be proven.
That's correct. He will be eligible for the AHL the season after.
While he's played very well for Hamilton in the playoffs and Memorial Cup, he will be back in the OHL next season to continue to develop. Don't be surprised if he is traded to another team looking to make a big playoff run.
