  1. Nice to see Schmaltz having a nice start to the season.

    Hopefully Hayden has worked on his skating.

    I’m excited to keep an eye on Gilbert this season. Hopefully they’ll show some ND games on TV again this season.

  2. For those more in the know—Who’s now the best power forward prospect with the Hawks-has Hayden slipped behind Calnan and Gilbert?
    Knott is doing better but not up to expectations.

  3. ^ To Noonan’s comments … actually I don’t think they have a true power forward prospect. Maybe one of these guys will develop into one … Liam Coughlin possibly being one … but none are really standing out to be labeled as such.

    Dennis Gilbert is a defenseman and well worth following. He has an edge to his game. Chris Calnan is kind of a meh player and Hayden needs to pick it up.
