The kid can scoot....

I mentioned earlier about Cody Eakin hopefully partaking in the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Skills Comeptition tonight in Oshawa.

I was thinking he may have a shot in the fastest skating event.... and boy did he ever.

Eakin apparently finished 2nd, just 2/100ths of a second behind the winner Landon Ferraro of the Red Deer Rebels.

Ferraro posted the fastest lap at 14.oo9 according to the CHL website. Eakin gave it a good run though. I hope he performs well in the game tomorrow night which will feature the top 40 NHL draft prospects from the Canadian Hockey League.

It's on Rogers Sportsnet....

Knowing Eakin, he'll give it a good go tomorrow night. The kid is a competitor and well deserving to be among the Top Prospects in Canada.
