Talented--and Howe!

In a post last month (The Buddy System), we reported that recent Avalanche draft choices Kevin Shattenkirk and Colby Cohen (photo, right)had been teammates on the on the '89 East Coast Selects, a top summer/spring tournament program headed by Travis Howe, Gordie's grandson. A recent feature looks at the impact of the ECS program, examines Howe’s philosophy, and discusses ECS’ first crop of alumni drafted by the NHL, including Shattenkirk, Cohen, BC recruit Nick Petricki and Edmonton draft pick Sam Gagner.

Howe’s ECS Web site currently features photo essays on the development of Shattenkirk and Cohen. Future Terriers Corey Trivino (2008; and OPJHL/North Rookie of the Year) and Ethan Werek (2009), who will be teammates next season on the OPJHL Stouffville Spirit, also have participated in ECS programs.

Close to home--more camping
Incoming freshman goalie Adam Kraus, an Irving, Texas, native, has been invited to participate in the Dallas Stars’ rookies/prospects camp beginning next Monday. Kraus , who also had offers from three WCHA school, played for the NAHL Alaska Avalanche last season and previously with the Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
