Curtis Hamilton scored an exceptional goal last night, and this photo from Rob Ferguson (all rights reserved) tells you the story: it was his first goal since November 17th and only his 8th since turning pro in the fall of 2011 at age 19.
Toni Rajala is the emerging talent right now, having gone 6-7-13 in his last 14 contests. Kristians Pelss is injured, he was having a nice run there before last night.
Lines and Pairings
- Brett Clark-Andrew Hotham (Clark has looked good to my eye, Hotham has been consistent and dependable)
- Randy Jones-Colten Teubert (both of these defensemen have been a little chaotic to my eye)
- Martin Marincin-Alex Plante (Marincin has settled in nicely to 3rd pairing role, Plante is back after multiple HS’s)
- Arcobell0-Cornet-Cheechoo (pushing the river at evens and PP; Cheechoo is an impact AHL player, Arcobello not far behind)
- Green-Rajala-Byers (people, get ready: Rajala might end up playing an NHL game this season based on merit)
- Martindale-Hunter-Hamilton (Martindale has turned a corner, Hunter was called up today for Pelss)
- House-Tyrvainen-Lizon (House is a low event defensive player, Tyrvainen is crazy and Lizon is down the road apiece from Tyrvainen)
Goalie is Yann Danis.
Eberle’s still #1. Incredible.
