Noel on the first line with Cole Perfetti and Akil Thomas vs Russia tonight
You have Noel on the 1st line,
But Josh Brown has Noel on the 4th line.
Team OHL lines at practice:
No offence to Josh Brown, but there's clearly a 4th line (Hillis-Damiani-Giroux) and he doesnt have them as the 4th, so his "lines" are likely just the order they did the drills in, not what they actually are. Realistically there's 3 first lines and a 4th line
And Scott Wheeler had Noel on the 1st line, at the morning skate
Team OHL lines at morning skate:
Perfetti - Thomas - Noel
Tomasino - Byfield - McMichael
Foudy - Dudas - Dellandrea
Giroux - Damiani - Hillis
Rumour has it that A. Mac will not be going to Ottawa. Something regarding an injury that he has been fighting since the Peterborough game.
maybe that's why they signed the goalie from Windsor.
Interesting, hope everything's okay with him behind the scenes
Noel using his size and skating ability to set up OHL's 2nd goal vs Russia
The big fella can dominate at times for sure.
I recall last year on the road v rangers he almost singlehandedly won the game, with 2 goals, including the OT winner.
He has good vibes in that barn for sure.
Gens in KIT on dec 6. Would Noel still be with the team then and leave for World Jr camp after?
Just going by the CHL game sheet Noel doesn't have any assist so far.
Correct. They don't award 3rd assists.
Because it was a 4 man set up and for stat sheets they only count 1 goal and up to but not including 2 assists. On that particular play it went Assist, assist, assist, goal so that first assist(Noel) does not make the offical stay sheet.
Brett Harrison's Canada White won their quarter-final tonight in OT so they play the USA tomorrow night in the U17 semi-final
Gens 5-4 Vallati GWG
67’s 5 Gens 1 Hoef GWG
It's going to be a great game tonight- looking forward to watching two of the East's powers go at it in person tonight!
Do you guys expect that the Gens will be buyers or sellers this year? If you buy, you will be very tough to beat. I haven't heard of a single other team being rumoured to host the Mem Cup next year, so if you guys do bid it will be tough not to sell of Noel, McShane, Vallatti and Neumann.
they won’t be adding any expensive rentals but looking for multi year guys. They also won’t be moving McShane, Vallati or Neumann
Is William Ennis slated to become the third OA next season (behind McShane and Vallati), hence putting up Antropov?
Yes Ennis will be an OA, although there's a very small chance that both McShane and Vallati get sent back. I think it's more likely that neither do than that both of them do.
If I had to guess, I would definitely guess that McShane gets signed by MTL (although they could still send him back after signing him, its just rare) and I have no grasp of what WPG will do with Vallati
McShane's a 4th rounder, Vallati's a 5th rounder
Hmmm, Montreal has perhaps the deepest prospect pool around. Some might argue McShane has his work cut out for him to get signed, as Montreal has many other unsigned forward prospects rated higher by some (Caufield, Ikonen, Ylonen, Olofsson, Struble and possibly Pitlick and Fonstad).
I am leaning towards them both being back for an OA year.

Well that would be great news for the Gens!
Most of the ones you mentioned though are American or European, so they don't have to be signed yet. McShane, Hillis, Fonstad and Houde are the 4 who they have to decide if they're signing or not by June 1, 2020. The rest of them are either 2021 or 2022 deadlines
I believe Americans are still 2 years but yes Euros are 4. So I think you need to add Ylonen to your June 2020 list.
EDIT: maybe not since he plays overseas, regardless of his place of birth.
Americans are also 4 years because of the 4 year degree.. Ylonen is June 1, 2022 deadline. You can obviously sign them earlier if you want, but you can wait up to 4 years as they finish their NCAA careers. If a player signs before the 4 year deadline, they can no longer play NCAA, so usually they wait until they're done unless they just want to start their pro career right away
HockeyPops, I am not sure Antropov is considered to be 'Overage' next year as he has a late birthdate and I have heard he still has 2 years of Jr. left (including an overage year). I stand to be corrected!
