Gelinas to the Top Prospects Game

The CHL announced the rosters for the 2009 Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game today.  The Lewiston Maineiacs are represented again this year as defenseman Eric Gelinas will be heading to Oshawa, Ontario on January 13th.

The 17-year-old defenseman has 6 goals and 16 assists in 35 games this season.

Other QMJHL players invited include Olivier Roy (Cape Breton), David Gilbert (Quebec), Dmitry Kulikov (Drummondville), Simon Despres (Saint John), Charles-Olivier Roussel (Shawinigan), Philippe Paradis (Shawinigan), and Jordan Caron (Rimouski).

The way that Gelinas is playing, he’s a second round pick.  I think a good showing at the Top Prospects and possible selection to the Under-18 in early April will put in the late 1st round or in the early second round come June.

In alumni news, Alexandre Picard was recalled by the Columbus Blue Jackets today.
