Jansen Harkins is a name that could be applied to both a cop in a made-for-TV movie and a current junior hockey player.
The son of former NHLer Todd Harkins, the Prince George Cougars' centre (and team leading scorer) is currently being projected as a late-first round option.

Not surprisingly after Elliotte Friedman broke the news that the Leafs are actively fielding calls on Phil Kessel we are seeing a influx of Kessel destination speculation. First we had the Predators outed as likely suitors by Friedman, and Bob McKenzie has hinted that the Panthers and Blues may also be interested in revisiting past interest in Kessel. Today we can now add the Washington Capitals to list of teams speculated on, as Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington ponders if the world is read for Ovechkin and Kessel to be on the same team (via Spectors Hockey).

If I was a gambler, my money would probably be on Mark Hunter to be the next general manager of the Leafs. Thing is, I'd be betting on an underdog because the odds-on favourite right now appears to be Mike Futa.

Over the last couple of days we here at TLN have been using PCS% and The Projection Project to try and identify CHL players that may be overlooked leading up to the draft relative to where they are ranked. Today we're going to show you the full list of projection tool rankings. In these tables will be not just the players that might be overlooked, but the projection numbers of every single CHL forward and defenseman ranked by NHL Central Scouting.

Kris Knoblauch is first thought of by fans as the bench boss in charge of Connor McDavid's Erie Otters, but the 36 year old Saskatchewan native has coached an entire slew of top-ranked NHL prospects since stepping behind the bench of his first CHL club in 2010 - including both Max and Sam Reinhart, New York Rangers netminding prospect Mackenzie Skapski, and 2015 Draft eligible Dylan Strome.
Now, he's looking to move up to the pro level...
