Prospect Of The Month: Andrew Mangiapane

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames

Frenetic is one way to sum up Andrew Mangiapane's month of March.

The Calgary Flames prospect rattled off seven points and 22 points in the Barrie Colts final nine games of the 2015-16 regular season, earning him OHL Player Of The Month honours, and carried that strong play into the postseason.

The Colts have gotten six points out of Mangiapane in their first five playoff games and now hold a 3-2 series lead over the Mississauga Steelheads.

Mangiapane started the month with points in six straight games. He had two or more points in each of those outings and ended up with six goals and 17 points in that six-game spree.

He wrapped up his regular season with one goal and four points in a 11-4 thumping over the Sudbury Wolves.

The winger earned stars in four of the nine regular season games he played in March and was the first star in three of those outings.

Managiapane finished the regular season with 51 goals and 106 points in 59 games, placing him sixth in the OHL regular season scoring race.

The 19-year-old picked up an assist and had four shots on net in the Colts first playoff battle with the Steelhands, a 5-2 Game One win, and registered another single assist in Game Two, a 6-3 loss.

Mangiapane was held pointless in Game Three but had a goal and an assist in the Colts 6-5 win in Game Four. He was Game Five's second star after scoring two goals -- including the game-winner -- in a 3-0 victory.

Away from the rink, March was also a month to remember for Mangiapane. He signed an entry-level deal with the Flames on Mar. 23.

"It was definitely a good feeling," Mangiapane told after inking his first NHL contract. "I’m glad to be a part of the Flames organization.

"It’s such a great feeling."

Calgary selected Mangiapane in the sixth round (166th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft.
