CSB A Players

I'm going to be starting a monthly-ish feature on draft-eligible American hockey players called 'American Hockey Draft Report'. This month's is kind of long as it takes a look at all the American players to receive an 'A' rating by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau.

You can read it here.

So does going to Wisconsin as a drafted player help or hurt players. Looks like Ford got his mojo back once he got out from under Eaves.

Former Wisconsin Badgers men's hockey forward Matthew Ford's early-season scoring binge has earned him a tryout with the AHL's Hartford WolfPack.

Ford had six goals and nine points in five games for the ECHL's Charlotte Checkers, emerging from the checking role he played in a four-year collegiate career that ended last season.

He was recently featured on, and in the story, he talked about the change.

"It's just getting a fresh start and a change of scenery. I kind of got into a role there. I had some great coaching, but I kind of had a different role when I was playing at Wisconsin. The opportunity presented itself here and I have the chance to play a different style."
