New York Islander Fan Central | 8/21/2008 11:07:00 AM NYI Fan Central New Prospect Center
After a lot of work behind the scenes this summer our new redesigned prospect center is now up and running at NYIFC and I think it's a winner that everyone will enjoy that is a vast improvement over year one where where all it did was link to the teams website profile.
Each prospect now has a section of it's own with information from the teams they play for now in North America along with stats, information, website and newspaper coverage in some cases. European prospects were also given links to follow stats and information that will include links to their teams directly if possible.
Also a new feeder was added to this blog that has College, Canadian League News and Pro Hockey Leagues in general.
Some things were simply not available, many college clubs do not have dedicated independent newspaper coverage. I did provide many newspaper links to CHL teams but many were in French and no paper had a specific team feeder.
Hopefully I got all the players who transferred correct, any mistakes let me know and this is something that will change a lot as players move around, these are the changes to this point:
* Corey Trivino Stouffville Spirit Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League transferred Boston University.
* David Toews- Shattuck-St. Mary’s High School in Minnesota to University of North Dakota.
* Blake Kessel Waterloo USHL To University of New Hampshire Hockey East NCAA.
* Troy Mattila Tri-City Storm USHL to Darmouth ECAC.
* Jason Gregiore from Lincoln Stars (USHL) to University of North Dakota.
* Aaron Ness from Roseau High School to Minnesota Gophers.
* Matt Donovan Cedar Rapids USHL & Denver University WCHA:
Donovan will play for the RoughRiders again this season while also attending the University of Denver. Eligibility rules differ in hockey. As long as Donovan doesn't receive any money with Cedar Rapids, he can play for both clubs.
I have already been setting up for Moncton coverage, no specific feeders but I will set up a link list for those Newspapers for days I cannot update.
