Do you think Hamilton when get any reinforcements from our US college prospects soon?
I believe Pateryn, Kristo and Quailer could all get contract offers after their seasons are over.
It looks like all 3 could be legitimate prospects.

I hope they give him some decent ice time. lets see him perform like he does in Hamilton. We need some hope. :)
