    OHL Player of the week is Owen Sounds Brad Richardson.

    Richardson was a fifth round draft choice of Colorado in 2003 who was limited to only 16 games last season due to a shoulder injury.

    That honor should have gone to his team mate, Bobby Ryan.

    Hear,hear. Ryan was much better, despite Richardson's goals.

    How has Ryan's skating looked so far? Has it improved a lot since last season?

    Also, how has Combs been?

    His pure straight line speed is not lot better, but you can see huge improvements. He is much more fit, so doesn't tire, and stays at full speed more, and his turns, backward skating and acceleration are all vastly improved. I don't think his skating will be a problem come draft time like many thought. To illustrate how much better it is. He is playing the PK and 4 on 4 regularly, something he didn't do last year.

    Not sure who you mean by Combs, Wes Cunningham?

    No no he means Jack Combs of Kitchener. At one point he was one of the best USA players for his age group out there, possibly still is. He had issues with his fitnees which scared people off but people were comparing him to Ray Sheppard at one point. I think he could one of the top 30 players for next years draft IMO, he does have the talent, good to see he chose the OHL though, USA was not treating him good at all.

    Yeah, he's been a little too erratic for my liking. Can't complain with the points he's putting up though.

    Only saw Kitchener in the preseason once, and can't say I remember anyone called Combs, sorry. I was really focusing on Richards, McGrath and the 3 d-men. I'm hoping to get down to Kitchener 10-12 times, so i'll keep an eye out.

    He scored his first OHL goal yesterday against London. Unusual skating style, but it looks as though he'll be a good one!
