History

2011-12: Andrew Mangiapane played for the Mississauga Senators minor midget AAA team in Ontario. He scored 22 goals with 17 assists and 44 penalty minutes in 46 games. 

2012-13: Mangiapane appeared in four junior A games with the Toronto Junior Canadiens and was among the leading scorers for the club’s midget AAA squad. He had no points with 2 penalty minutes in junior A play. Mangiapane scored 14 goals with 22 assists and 22 penalty minutes in 32 regular season games for the Canadiens midget AAA team. Toronto lost to the Vaughan Kings in a GTHL quarterfinal series. Mangiapane scored 5 goals with 2 assists and 8 penalty minutes in seven playoff games.  

2013-14: Mangiapane earned a roster spot with the OHL’s Barrie Colts in training camp as a free agent. One of two players to skate in all 68 regular season games, he was the Colts’ fifth-leading scorer with 24 goals and 27 assists and was +19 with 28 penalty minutes. Barrie finished third in the Central Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Mangiapane scored 2 goals with 5 assists and had an even plus/minus with 8 penalty minutes in 11 playoff games. 

2014-15: Mangiapane was one of three forwards for Barrie to top the 100-point mark along with Joseph Blandisi (Colorado) and Kevin Lebanc (San Jose) in his second OHL season. He scored 43 goals with 61 assists and was +24 with 54 penalty minutes in 68 regular season games. The Colts finished first in the Central Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Mangiapane scored 6 goals with 4 assists and was +3 with 12 penalty minutes in nine playoff games. He was ranked 85th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was invited to the NHL Prospects Combine. Mangiapane was selected by Calgary in the sixth round (166th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

Mangiapane is a bit of a late bloomer who plays a lot bigger than he is and is willing to drive the net or work down low to set up a teammate. After putting up decent offensive numbers in his draft year in his first OHL season, he topped the 100-point mark in his second year of junior hockey and was a sixth-round selection by Calgary. Maniapane has evolved into a patient, dangerous special teams contributor. His lack of prototypical size and high-end offensive skills could be an obstacle at the pro level but he is a high energy skater and reads the play well.

Future

Mangiapane will attend his first NHL training camp with Calgary before being returned to Barrie for his third OHL season in 2015-16. As with most late-round picks he faces an uphill battle in one day securing an NHL roster spot but he opened eyes in Penticton with his mobility and his ability to be involved in the play at all times suggests he can secure a role as a two-way second or third line forward with some offensive ability one day.

The Ontario Hockey League was stocked with talent up front this season and it culminated in a season for the ages for one London Knight. But while Toronto Maple Leafs’ prospect Mitchell Marner may have been the top winger this year, he was not the only show in the league.

The OHL was blessed with a depth of elite-quality, NHL-drafted talent on its wings this season, with the best of that group being ranked below. Read more»

While the Calgary Flames’ NHL season did not end on much of a positive note, and their AHL affiliate Stockton Heat also missed a playoff berth, it is still a franchise very much in transition and trending the right direction. Despite a difficult year as an organization in the standings, there are a number of young talents to be excited about at all levels. When you go over the list of prospects and young players the Flames currently have in the fold, the feeling is that these difficult years are being put behind them. It has been an altogether difficult season for some, but for others there is recognition that is deserved.

‏Decision time looms for several key Calgary Flames NCAA prospects

John Gilmour - Calgary Flames

The Calgary Flames have five NCAA prospects. All five are eligible to be signed to pro contracts, but three of them have completed senior seasons that will force Brad Treliving and crew into decision-making time. While it remains to be seen what will happen with the likes of Mark Jankowski or John Gilmour, we are starting to see the blending of the old management’s building plan with the potentially new and different blueprint of the current management.

Top 20 Calgary Flames prospects highlighted by a spectrum of blueline talents

Sam Bennett - Calgary Flames

The Calgary Flames prospect pipeline is an interesting combination when you look at it top to bottom.There is some exceptional high-end talent coupled with some depth players and role players, who seem like grinders at best. In other words, there may be a lack of middle ground from the high to the low. Nevertheless, the team has on hand some really strong blue-line depth and some reasonable center depth with several individual players having strong years. This is a system bristling with high end talent, but there is some considerable risk as well. There are some big moves and a few surprises in this mid-season rank to boot, so strap in.
