SMOKESCREEN ALERT

The Kitchener Rangers reportedly got Adam Fantilli to sign a tender with Chicago USHL so that he'll fall to them.

It's all a smokescreen being propelled and helped along by TSN's Bob Mckenzie who is the Dad of Kitchener GM Mike McKenzie.

After the Halliday gaffe, can they take that chance under these circumstances?

I can tell you this with absolute certainty, if the IceDogs select Adam Fantilli tomorrow that means he struck a deal with them tonight. As I wrote in a post about half an hour ago...

If the IceDogs end up getting Fantilli - fantastic, but if the selection is either Fimis or Ludwinski, Iíll be thrilled too. They are both exceptionally talented players and will make a name for themselves before their junior careers are done.

In four years, IceDog fans will be glad we drafted that player and sad to see them leave. We may not be getting a Byfield or Wright, but four years of a Thomas or Tomasino is exactly what this team needs for this rebuild.

Good thing ohlinsider broke that story the day before the draft - there goes that plan out the window! "With the 13th pick, the Oshawa Generals select Adam Fantilli". The perfect trade chip to kick start their rebuild in 2021.

The dogs cannot win in this situation, it?s a tough spot for the organization ... do the USHL/NCAA draft shenanigans finally help Niagara or hurt Niagara (again)?

If they draft him I can?t imagine Niagara will want him to play in the USHL for the year ... so if Fantilli is SERIOUS about wanting to play in the USHL then I would say the Dogs will not draft him. If that was just a smoke show then I expect the brothers will suit up in Niagara in September .

Niagara can not afford to lose him for a year. It is imperative the Dogs did proper due diligence before making this selection.

My gut says Fantilli does not want to play here, that Niagara does not draft him, and his brothers rights are eventually traded to whomever drafts him .

I really think Niagara?s lack of a bona fide coach is going to be a problem recruiting him to play here.

Is there a pipeline that long ?

DRAFT DAY- BIG DAY for the ICEDOGS!


Weeks Major Midgets @WeeksMidgets ∑ 14h
Good Luck to our own #15 Landon Sim as he enters the @OHLHockey Draft!!
ELITE PROSPECTS https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/563410/landon-sim

OHL Prospects @BrockOtten
An interesting name to watch tomorrow. Jon Sim's son. Was originally slated to be a relatively high pick in the QMJHL Draft. Maybe one of those surprise first round selections? We'll see.

Steven Ellis @StevenEllisTHN ∑ Replying to @BrockOtten
Quick kid. His play is all about energy. He wins a ton of faceoffs and is surprisingly aggressive for a small player.

OHL Prospects @BrockOtten ∑
So got some more info on Sim. He's using the rule Nick Latta recently used to be eligible for the OHL (as a non import). His father played in the OHL, so he is therefore eligible.

OHL Prospects @BrockOtten
Told that at least one GM was down to watch him multiple times. Thought of as around a 3rd round pick for the QMJHL Draft originally. Great skater. High energy. Smaller kid, but plays a fearless game. Sounds a lot like his Dad Jon.




A no frills OHL draft this year
https://www.thepeterboroughexaminer....aft-this-year/

The OHL draft will be missing a lot of bells and whistles this year - significant changes to one of the league's marquee events on April 4, said OHL commissioner David Branch. There will be no draft show, no team press conferences and all league officials and team personnel will be working remotely connected by technology. Since moving the draft online in the early 2000s, the first three rounds have featured a webcast hosted by Terry Doyle with prospect profiles on and interviews. Not this year, said Branch.
