Early Calder Talk

from Rory Boylen of The Hockey News,

When I was doing my due diligence for a “Fab Freshman” article for our annual Poolbook in the summer, I grabbed the opinions of a couple NHL scouts on which players they thought would impress the most in their inaugural run through The Circuit. Names on the list included Tavares, Nikita Filatov, Cody Hodgson, Matt Gilroy, Colin Wilson and more, but when the name Artem Anisimov came up, there was an underlining pause.

The Rangers prospect is the guy to watch out for.

“Honestly, I think he’s the best of the ones you’ve named so far,” said one scout.

Now, we’re not necessarily talking long-term potential here – though with what Anisimov brings to the table, it’s entirely possible he could bloom into a superstar. This is purely about Year 1 and how this year’s Calder Trophy race will most likely play out.
