Top Ten Calgary Flames Prospects, Spring 2013 Edition (The Hockey Writers)
#2: LW Johnny Gaudreau. The man known as “Johnny Hockey” followed up his excellent freshman year in the NCAA with an even better sophomore campaign.

Sadly, Calgary’s fourth round pick in 2010 did not win a second NCAA Championship, but he’ll be back at Boston College to seek a title (and a degree) in the fall. Gaudreau is fast and incredibly creative, but he’s pretty small (5-7, 165 lbs).
