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.

New Rankings for Caps Prospects, 10-20

John Blankenship and Jeff Charlesworth contributed to this article.

11. Chris Corrinet, C, Princeton (NCAA), Capitals’ fourth choice, 107 overall in 1998
ECAC – 23 games, 11 goals, 10 assists, 28 PIM

John’s comments: Another big player who has good athletic ability. Skates well and has a very good shot. Needs to be a little more physical. He’s a hard worker and may follow in Jeff Halpern’s footsteps and make the Caps. Most likely will play in Portland if he signs.

Rick’s comments: I had Chris rated #11 and John had him rated #12. He has shown consistent improvement in each of his four years at Princeton. He was even leading the ECAC in goals for a while earlier this year. Size, athleticism, and intelligence will all make it easier for him to make the Caps, but unless he absolutely blows up at camp, expect to see him in Portland.

Jeff’s comments: Chris is going to be a player you’ll be hearing a lot about very soon. Although he has been a point-per-game scorer in college, his totals won’t be that high in the NHL. His size and work ethic will make him a solid player in the pros though. There will be expectations of Chris jumping right into Washington, but will start off next season in Portland.

12. Remi Royer, D, Portland (AHL), acquired by Capitals from Chicago, 2000
AHL – 34 games, 1 goal, 6 assists, 126 PIM, -8

Home at Last ?

After busing for over 1,000 miles on their last road trip, home wasn’t as sweet as it should of been. Their fatigue on the ice captured what was to follow. Norfolk didn’t anticipate that when they laced up their skates that they would play one of their worst games of the season and continue on a four-game skid. Admirals came into Tuesdays game against the Syracuse Crunch leading among teams with fewest goals allowed in the league (2.39). But that changed when the Crunch who are in the midst of a three-game winning streak (20-26-6-2) (63 points),but who are also in fifth place, hammered Norfolk 5-1 in front of an announced crowd of 3,739.

A trapper to keep an eye on? The Crunches, netminder Jean-Francois Labbe (2.96 GAA, (12-14-5 overall) has more saves than any other goaltender in the league (1078). It was to a battle of the netminders in the first period .
Both counterparts only combined 15 shots on goal and rendered no goals. Syracuse Radim Bicanek on a pass from Bill Bower made a slap shot at the 3:24 mark. On a power play, Mathieu Darche slipped the puck in at the right side of the crease making it 2-0 Syracuse. Norfolk answered back when team leading scorer, Casey Hankinson (G-22) plucked the puck out Syracuse defensive zone at 10:45.

A dry spell? In the third, the Crunch moved up when Bill Bower (leads team with G-16) shot from the stick side at 1:54. Thus making it 3-1 Syracuse. Norfolk struggled to get any advantages. The only sound you could hear was the sound of sneers and jeers among the few fans that stuck it out. Norfolk’s re Read more»
