With the Saint John Sea Dogs winning the 2011 Memorial Cup, the playing season involving Avalanche prospects has come to an end.
I've posted my NCAA prospects review over at Mile High Hockey and I'll be rolling out season ending reviews for the Lake Erie Monsters and the Avs CHL prospects over the next couple of weeks.
This Wednesday, June 1, 2011, marks an important signing deadline for certain prospects. Brandon Maxwell, who was drafted by the Avalanche in 2009, needs to be signed before the deadline on June 1st or Colorado will lose his rights. Considering the Avalanche have signed all other prospects that have signing deadlines this summer (Stefan Elliott, Tyson Barrie, Brad Malone), the prospects of Maxwell being signed are slim.
I have some draft projects I'll be working on between now and the draft, but for general prospect tidbits, be sure to follow me on Twitter.
I'll be following any signings that are prospect or Lake Erie Monsters related. Check back periodically for an updated signing tracker.
