Prospect Of The Month: Andrew Mangiapane

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames

After being selected by Calgary in the sixth round of the 2015 NHL Draft, Flames fans flocked to the internet to get the scoop on Barrie Colts' Andrew Mangiapane.

The diminutive forward, as it turns out, was one of the most offensively successful draftees last summer.

In 68 regular season games in 2014-15, Mangiapane scored an impressive 43 goals and ended up with 104 points on the year. 25 of his goals came at even-strength, 16 were scored on the power play, and had two short-handed goals that year.

Yes, he was in the second year of his draft eligibility but those kind of numbers for a 19-year-old in the Ontario Hockey League were still striking.

There was plenty of chatter about him into development camp and the 2015 Young Stars Classic in Penticton. He performed well at both, and had stint at the Flames main training camp in September, so there was an expectation for him to continue producing at a torrid rate once he returned to Barrie.

He hasn't disappointed.

In February, Mangiapane scored 14 goals and 22 points in 11 games, which ranks second only to his linemate Kevin Labanc amongst Barrie skaters. He averaged 2.0 points-per-game and 1.27 goals-per-game.

He put 46 shots on net, giving him a 30.4 shooting percentage, and was held pointless in just a single game -- a 4-1 Barrie loss on Feb. 19. He had multi-point outings in seven games last month and managed to post three-points in five consecutive games in early February.

He also had two three-goal games last month, which brings his hat trick total to five this year.

Thanks to his staggering output in February, Mangiapane now has 84 points in 50 games this season. He's averaging 1.68 points-per-game, is eighth in the OHL scoring race, and is tied for third in the league in goals scored.

At his current pace, Mangiane could once again hit the 100-point plateau.

With 10 games left in the regular season, Mangiapane has the chance to break Bryan Cameron's franchise record in goals, which was set in 2009-10 when he scored 53.
