    Mustache Power carried him to an easy victory.

    This is why I don’t like doing prospect profiles.  Call it the “Curse of GB”.

    2008-09′s semi-popular “Getting To Know You” series featured six players who were (at the time) prospects Leafs’ fans were excited about.

    One by one, five of these prospects were gradually moved out of the system voted off the team, culminating in yesterday’s decision to not qualify Phil Oreskovic.

    The result?  Dale Mitchell is your MLHS “Getting To Know You” Survivor!

      Pretty darn close. Dale Mitchell is turning heads in the OHL, and it’s not just because of his speed, it’s because of his stats, albeit he is playing with Taylor Hall. Dale was drafted in the third round, 74th overall, of the 2007 NHL entry draft – the same year Chris DiDomenico was drafted, so all in all it was a pretty decent draft year despite trading the 1st and 2nd round picks to SJS for Toskala. At the time, Mitchell posted an 80 point season (43G 37A) but was considered to be too small, even by today’s NHL standards (5’9” 180lbs).
