Predators Prospect Report (Dec. 12)

by Staff Writer / Nashville Predators

NashvillePredators.com continues its regular weekly updates on the progress of the Preds prospects playing in various developmental or European professional leagues.



The Preds WHL prospects are continuing their strong seasons. Jonathon Blum put up one goal and four points with a +8 plus/minus rating in two games last week. While goaltender Chet Pickard was named both the WHL & Canadian Hockey League Goaltender of the Week.

Pickard is currently in Hockey Canada’s evaluation camp for the 2008 World Junior Championships. Blum and 2008 Preds first round pick Colin Wilson were named to Team USA for the World Juniors. The tournament opens December 26 in Ottawa, Ontario, with pre-tournament exhibition games starting as early as December 19.
