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. 

2009-10: Silas improved his totals, picking up 4 goals and 45 assists for 49 points in 66 games for Belleville.  Played for Team Orr at the 2010 Top Prospects Game.

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.

Also, the SHL’s juggernaut squad in Skelleftea may have an opportunity this weekend to advance to the finals with one more win, but a top prospect for a rival will have something to say about that.
