Slater Koekkoek TTM Success

Mailed:  10/30/2013
Received:  12/18/2013
Days:  49
c/o: Windsor Spitfires

Slater is a 1st round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning.  He has 25 points in 32 games so far this year for the Spitfires in the OHL.  Those are some great numbers for a defenceman on a sub par team in the OHL.  He should have a spot in Tampa in the next couple of seasons.

Kris Russell TTM Success

Mailed:  11/20/2013
Received:  12/03/2013
Days:  13
c/o: Calgary Flames

Kris is enjoying a career year this season with the Flames.  He has 13 points in 26 games so far.  He has always been a defence first player, and even on bad Blue Jackets' teams, he had a plus rating.  He has also represented Canada at 2 World Championships, getting 7 points in 11 games.  If Team Canada were looking for someone with great defensive sense, they would probably have a harder look at him for the Olympic team.  However, we seem to be pretty deep on D-men this year, so I doubt that he will get a look.

Troy was a 3rd round pick of the Colorado Avalanche in the 2012 draft.  He is enjoying a good final season of Jr. hockey with 29 points in 29 games so far for the Cougars.
