    The 2005-2006 WJHC sees the Chicago Blackhawks represented by the following players:

    Dustin Boyd, Canada

    The Winnipeg native has played the last four seasons with the Moose Jaw Warriors of the WHL. The 2004-05 season was his best campaign to date, as he scored 26 goals and 61 points in 66 games. Boyd was cut by the Canada's World Junior team last December, but was invited to the summer development camp in August. He was taken in the third round by the Calgary Flames in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

    Drafted in 2004 7rd pick 192 by CHI...potential steal of the draft

    Matt Niskanen, U.S.A

    The Unniversity of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldog is a very smooth skater who has the foot speed and hand speed to quickly move laterally with the puck. He shoots the puck heavily and is experienced at controlling the flow of the game. He is a very poised player who chooses when to get involved with the play, and is capable in all situations.

    Jeff Frazzee, U.S.A

    Frazee is a very athletic goaltender. He has good size and can cover a lot of ground, while using his flexibility to his advantage. He shows a lot of calm under fire, reads the attack well and does a good job of communicating with his teammates. He has shown a lot of consistency over the year and could become a very reliable netminder as he progresses in his career.

    As soon as Frazee was drafted, he assumed the status of the top goaltending prospect in the organization, ahead of Ari Ahonen who at his age can't be considered a prospect anymore. Martin Brodeur is still the main man in New Jersey and he still has a lot of good years left in him, but Frazee could very well be the heir apparent in the nets for the Devils. The Devils have absolutely no need to rush Frazee with Brodeur still playing at a high level, but now the Devils have a potential No. 1 goaltender in the system to groom.
