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.
The NCAA continues to be a quality source of promising prospects for the Calgary Flames with six currently represented in the system. Leading the way is a trio of Providence Friars which includes Jon Gillies, Mark Jankowski, and John Gilmour. Matt Deblouw and Tim Harrison have returned to their respective schools with stronger seasons, while freshman Brandon Hickey has stepped in and elevated his play as a defender for Boston University.
It has been a long time since the Calgary Flames have had a deep talent pool like the current group developing at each position. The Flames were fortunate to add four first-round picks to their system in the past two years, which includes a pair of centers from Ontario in Sean Monahan and Sam Bennett, who became the highest pick in team history when selected fourth overall in the 2014 NHL draft.
