History

2010-11: Jayce Hawryluk skated for the Russell Rams bantam AA team in Western Manitoba. He was selected by Brandon in the second round (32nd overall) of the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.

2011-12: Hawryluk skated for the Parkland Rangers midget major team and played for Team Manitoba in the Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup. He led the Rangers in both points and penalty minutes; scoring 31 goals with 36 assists and 138 penalty minutes in 40 games. The Rangers finished last in the Western Division. Hawryluk scored 3 goals with 4 assists in four games for Team Manitoba.

2012-13: Hawryluk made his WHL debut with Brandon as a 16-year-old and skated for Canada Western in the 2013 U17 World Hockey Challenge. He appeared in 61 of 72 games for the Wheat Kings and scored 18 goals with 25 assists; finishing -18 with 46 penalty minutes on a Brandon team that had the WHL’s third worst record. Hawryluk had no points and 16 penalty minutes in four games for Canada Western at the WHC.

2013-14: Hawryluk played for Canada’s U18 team at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in August before returning to Brandon for his second season with the Wheat Kings. Skating on a line with fellow 2014 NHL Draft prospect John Quenneville much of the season, he was leading Brandon in assists (31) and plus/minus (+11) as the Wheat Kings were leading the East Division in early February. Hawryluk was tied for third with 16 goals and had 35 assists after 47 games. Skating for Canada, he had his only point of the Ivan Hlinka tournament, a goal, in Canada’s 4-0 gold medal game win and was +1 with 6 penalty minutes in five games. Hawryluk was ranked 42nd amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s mid-term rankings prior to the 2014 NHL Draft.

Emphasis on drafting NCAA talent has dwindled Florida Panthers CHL prospect pool

Under general manager Dale Tallon, the Florida Panthers have been among the foremost practitioners of drafting college-bound players and thereby gaining an extra two years of development before having to make decisions on their futures. As such, the number of Florida’s prospects playing junior hockey is relatively limited. In fact, the team currently has only four players in the Canadian major junior leagues, and two more playing in the USHL before they too go off to college.

The Florida Panthers organization looks much different now than it did even two years ago. General Manager Dale Tallon’s rebuilding of the prospect system and the relative patience that his staff has shown in allowing those prospects to mature has started to bear fruit. Several players have moved through the pipeline to become NHL regulars or AHL players on the verge of graduating to the big leagues.

The Florida Panthers prospect system continues to be heavily weighted towards the NCAA and minor professional leagues, with a lot of talent concentrated at those levels. However, the talent pool as a whole is still substantial despite recent graduations, and should continue to provide the Panthers with a steady stream of high-quality prospects for the next few years.

After a year in which several prospects left the Panthers system, the summer brought new faces to Florida. Among them is the first overall pick of the 2014 NHL Draft, Aaron Ekblad, a towering, talented defenseman who could be just one of several prospects earning full-time NHL roster spots this fall.

Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon has been steadily building a team geared for long-term NHL success by building through the NHL Draft, making key trades and signing stop-gap free agents to meet salary needs.
