'Cats in the Pros

As soon as I can I will update the 'Cats Playing Pro list to reflect where everyone is as we come into the 2007-2008 Hockey Season!

For now I'll sift the HE Alums attending NHL camps to show all of the 'Cats in one place - here!

Darren Haydar - Atlanta
Jason Krog - Atlanta
Ty Conklin - Pittsburgh
Mark Mowers - Boston
Brett Hemingway - Colorado
Garrett Stafford - Detroit
Jacob Micflikier - Edmonton
Trevor Smith - NYI
Daniel Winnik - Phoenix
Chris Murray - San Jose

The HE List is title-linked.

In other news, NCAA Watcher brings us this stat sheet on new Future 'Cat, Ryan Bourque. Ryan had a goal, increasing the National Team's lead to 5-1, and launched a personal barrage on the opponents goal with seven shots. He was a +1 on the night. The game was his first with the USNTDP U-17s and their NAHL season opener against the St. Louis Bandits, whose coach, Jon Cooper, recently coached the US U-17s to a silver metal in the U-17 Five Nations Tournament held in Strakonice, Tabor and Pribram, Czech Republic - hosted by the Czechs who played gold to our silver.

The next night the two squads faced-off again and the U-17s were edged by the extremely talented Bandits (one of the top teams last year) by a score of 5-4. Ryan would open the scoring in this game just seven minutes in with his second goal in as many games. Later in the period he would tally his first assist to again put the U-17s ahead to close the frame 2-1. They would go up 3-1 early in the second only to relinquish the lead over the remainder of the middle stanza and the go-ahead goal on the game's lone powerplay goal early in the third. They tied the game only to fall behind once more bringing their young season to a 1-1-0 record. See Box Score.

Well, that should be enough to whet your appetite for now.

Go 'Cats!
