Daily Cupcakes- May 19th, 2011


First a look at the Attack - and Joey Hishon  (Stick tap to Some White Guy)

Hishon, like Mignardi, has been a machine for the Attack throughout their playoff run, with five goals and 24 points in 22 games. Drafted 17th overall in 2010, Hishon sees the ice like no one else on the Attack and leads the offence. He has the ability to be a game-breaker, although he's more relied upon to set up a goal rather than score himself.

Not Avs related, but kind of interesting.

UND junior forward Jason Gregoire has withdrawn from school and will sign an NHL contract this summer, giving up his final year of college eligibility.

Gregoire will take advantage of a loophole in the NHL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement that allows him to become a free agent 30 days after withdrawing from school if not signed by the team that drafted him.

A brief look at the best guess for the Top Ten for this year's draft class.

There are no players the calibre of Taylor Hall in this June’s National Hockey League entry draft in St. Paul, Minnesota.

But Ryan Nugent-Hopkins may be every bit as dynamic at centre as Tyler Seguin was last year, except he’s about 20 pounds lighter than Seguin, who went to the Boston Bruins at No. 2 after the Edmonton Oilers took Hall first overall.
