Bill Arnold is off to a hot start for Boston College as he continues to develop into one of the most dominant two-way forwards in college hockey.
I heard the hype. I read Sid’s praise. I talked to a scout from a successful NHL team who joked that the only way his club would ever have a shot at him would be through winning a ping pong ball lottery, essentially anointing him with 1st overall status almost three years before his draft day.
After being selected by the Windsor Spitfires in the sixth round of the annual OHL Priority Selection, 17-year-old Jack Billings is now property of three teams. He plays for the Janesville Jets of the North American Hockey League. The Green Bay Gamblers of the United States Hockey League drafted him. And now he’s also property of the Spitfires organization.
NHL’s Central Scouting may have ranked him as a C-level prospect in its early ratings, but has only served to motivate the Plymouth Whalers’ Danny Vanderwiel to prove that he’s more suited to the A-list.
Riley Bourbonnais of the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and his head coach, Mark Carlson, may be the most laconic player-coach tandem in junior hockey.
