History

2008-09: Garnet Hathaway played soccer and hockey as a junior at Phillips Andover in Massachusetts. He scored 16 goals with 13 assists in 26 games skating on a Big Blue team that featured Boston College recruit Chris Kreider (New York Rangers). Hathaway had a goal in Andover’s 4-3 loss to Salisbury in the New England Prep Large School tournament semifinals. The Big Blue finished with a record of 17-5-4.

2009-10: Hathaway returned to the Phillips Andover hockey team for his senior season after becoming the school’s all-time leading scorer in soccer in the fall. In January 2010 he announced his commitment to playing college hockey at Brown University in 2010-11. Skating on the Big Blue’s top line with Division III recruits Will Gray and center Brian Safstrom he scored 17 goals with 20 assists and 32 penalty minutes. Andover finished a disappointing 8-17-0. Hathaway was ranked 110th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings but was not selected.

2010-11: Hathaway skated in 31 games for Brown University in his freshman season. He scored 5 goals with 9 assists and was +3 with 42 penalty minutes. The Bears finished ninth in ECAC Hockey and were swept by Quinnipiac in a first-round conference tournament series.

2011-12: Hathaway played in 26 of 32 games for Brown University as a sophomore — missing time during the middle of the year due to illness. He scored 3 goals with 5 assists and was -10 with 48 penalty minutes. The Bears were 9-18-5 and finished last in the 12-team ECAC Hockey League. Brown won the first game against fifth-place Quinnipiac in the first round of the playoffs before falling to the Bobcats in the best-of-three series.

2012-13: Hathaway was Brown University’s third-leading scorer in his junior season. He scored 6 goals with 15 assists, trailing only Matt Lorito (37 points) and Mark Naclerio (23) with 21 points. He was +6 with 47 penalty minutes in 33 regular season games. Brown finished tied for seventh in ECAC Hockey in the regular season. The Bears won 4 of 5 ECAC tournament games to reach the league championship game, defeating regular season champion Quinnipiac, 4-0, in the semifinals before falling 3-1 to Union.

2013-14: Hathaway attended the Pittsburgh and Boston prospect camps in July before returning to Brown University for his senior season. He made his pro hockey debut with Calgary AHL affiliate Abbotsford in March 2014 following the college season. Hathaway was +1 with no points and 10 penalty minutes in eight regular season games. The Heat finished second in the West Division before losing to Grand Rapids in a first-round series. Hathaway was scoreless and -1 with 10 penalty minutes in his only playoff game. He scored 6 goals with 9 assists and was -1 with 39 penalty minutes in 31 games for Brown. The Bears finished ninth in ECAC Hockey and were swept by St. Lawrence in a best-of-three preliminary series in the conference tournament.

2014-15: Hathaway was invited to the Calgary Flames training camp as a free agent but was released and signed by the AHL’s re-located and re-named Adirondack Flames (formerly Abbotsford). He scored 19 goals with 17 assists and was -8 with 77 penalty minutes in 72 regular season games. Adirondack finished fourth in the North Division, missing the Western Conference playoffs. Hathaway signed an entry-level contract with Calgary in April 2015.

Talent Analysis

Hathaway is a large winger who plays a strong defensive game. He plays a hard-nosed style and can be a difficult player to contain. Hathaway uses his size and strength very effectively in the tough areas and is a fierce competitor.

Future

Hathaway will challenge for a lower line spot with the Flames after signing an entry-level contract with the Flames following his first AHL season. Barring any surprises or injuries in training camp, he is likely to start the year with new Calgary AHL affiliate Stockton. Hathaway is not expected to be a huge scorer at the NHL level but his size and willingness to play in tight areas make him an intriguing option to complement some of the smaller, highly-skilled forwards in Calgary.

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.

The struggles of the Calgary Flames in the 2015-16 season have been high-profile. They have failed to build upon a Cinderella run last year that saw the team beat the analytics and crash out after getting to the Division Finals. With struggles coming from the big club, you would like to at least see some good coming from their AHL affiliate in their inaugural season in Stockton, California. Unfortunately, it that has not been the case.

ECAC 2010-11 season preview part two

by DJ Powers
on

In part two of Hockey’s Future’s two-part preview of the ECAC, we take a closer look at the six Ivy League schools. All noted start dates are for non-exhibition, regular season games.

Cornell University
Number of NHL prospects on roster: 4

The defending ECAC Tournament Champions will look to successfully defend their title when they open their 2010-11 on Oct. 29 hosting New Hampshire.

Cornell’s traditionally stingy defense was evident in last season’s run to the NCAA Tournament. The Big Red ranked second in the nation with a defense that allowed just 1.97 goals per game. The 67 total goals surrendered were the fewest in the ECAC. Of their 34 games last season, Cornell allowed three or more goals in just 12 of them. Equally as strong was their penalty-killing, which ranked third with an 87.9 percent efficiency rating. Interestingly, Cornell was also one of five teams nationally that did not post a shorthanded goal last season.

Coming into this season however, the Big Red’s strong defense will be severely tested with the loss of three key defensive cogs to graduation. And nowhere will it be felt more than in goal.
