Matt Frattin TTM Success

Mailed:  2/5/2013
Received:  03/20/2013
Days:  43
c/o: Toronto Maple Leafs

Matt should have really been on the Leafs from the start of the season.  He was the last player sent back to the Marlies after training camp.  He had 17 points in 21 games with the Marlies, which earned him a callup as soon as they had a spot.  He did get injured after 10 points in 10 games with the Leafs, but is back now and has 1 point in his last 4 games.

c/o: Oshawa Generals

Scott made the Philadelphia Flyers out of the shortened training camp, however, they elected to send him back to the OHL before his rookie contract kicked in at the 6 game mark.  He had 0 points in 5 games.  He did have 23 goals and 56 points in 49 games with the Generals who are heading into the OHL playoffs against the Niagara Ice Dogs.

Klingberg was drafted 34th overall by the Atlanta Thrashers in 2009.  He got one game in with the Thrashers and another 6 games with the Jets last season.  He has yet to register a point in the NHL though.  He has 21 points with the IceCaps this season.

Dennis Wideman TTM Success

Mailed:  1/22/2013
Received:  03/13/2013
Days:  50
c/o: Calgary Flames

I saw Dennis play a couple of times when he was with the Knights in the OHL.  He was a standout player to say the least.  He had 65 points in his last season there, for a defenceman, that is pretty good.  He has 12 points in 24 games, so far for the Calgary Flames, which have had a dismal year so far.

Nathan Beaulieu TTM Success

Mailed:  12/13/2012
Received:  03/08/2013
Days:  85
c/o: Hamilton Bulldogs

Nathan was drafted 17th overall by the Canadiens in the 2011 draft.  He played for Team Canada, winning a bronze medal at the World Jrs. in 2012.  The Habs are pretty deep for defencemen right now, so they are giving him some time to gain experience at the professional level.  He has 20 points in 57 games for the Bulldogs, so far this year.

Mathew Dumba TTM Success

Mailed:  02/12/2013
Received:  03/05/2013
Days:  21
c/o: Red Deer Rebels

Dumba got an extended look at the Minnesota Wild training camp in January.  In the end, they chose to send him back to Jr. for the rest of this season.  He had 12 points in 7 games for Team Canada, at the U18 Jr. tournament last year.  So far, this season, he has 37 points in 57 games for the Rebels.  Those are pretty good numbers for a defenceman.  Look for him next year in a Wild uniform.

Charles Hudon TTM Success

Mailed:  02/08/2013
Received:  03/01/2013
Days:  21
c/o: Chicoutimi Sagueneens

Charles was a 5th round selection of the Montreal Canadiens in 2012.  He has 64 points in 51 games so far in the QMJHL.  He would have represented Canada at the World Junior champhionships in Ufa, Russia, but was sidelined with a back injury right before leaving.  Chicoutimi are in 12th overall in the QMJHL and have clinched a playoff berth.
