History

2008-09: Played in 63 games for the Belleville Bulls in his OHL rookie season.  Silas scored 3 goals and added 14 assists for 17 points, also registering 18 penalty minutes.  In 17 playoff games for the Bulls, he did not register a point.

2010-11: Silas skated in a career-high 68 games in his third season with OHL Belleville and was second on the Bulls with 34 assists as a defenseman. He scored 2 goals with 52 PMs and was -16. The Bulls reached the OHL playoffs despite winning just 21 games but were no match for regular season champion Mississauga St. Michael's in their first round series. Silas finished -2 with 2 PMs in four games against the Majors.

Talent Analysis

Silas is not afraid to thrown his body around, and has a good grasp of the offensive side of the game but his skating and defensive play leave more to be desired. His greatest attribute is his playmaking ability.

Future

Silas will spend another season or two at the OHL level, working on his shot, his skating and improving his positional play.

In a Pioneer Press article titled “Burnsville Brock Boeser can’t wait to be a Badger,” Boeser told Press staff writer Garrison Shepard that the University of Wisconsin was his “dream school.” His cousin, Dan, who was an assistant coach at Burnsville while Brock was there, played at Wisconsin from 2000-2004. His mother’s family was from Madison. Heck, his name, Brock, is derived from the Gaelic word “broc”, which means badger. Read more»

The Kelowna Rockets and Brandon Wheat Kings are the top teams in their respective conferences in the WHL, but another team is nipping at their heels for the overall points lead. That team is the Medicine Hat Tigers, who currently sit six points behind the second overall Wheat Kings. The Tigers don’t sport a lineup with as much star power as either Kelowna or Brandon, instead relying on an overall team effort mixed with good goaltending. Read more»
