The Hockey News Hot List is a weekly roundup of minor league, junior, college and high school players appears regularly throughout the off-season on thehockeynews.com. This week DU recruit and incoming Freshman Sam Brittain was listed at #7.
7. Sam Brittain, G – Canmore Eagles (AJHL): Brittain’s Jr. A stats this year weren’t eye-popping, but at nearly 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, he has the trendy big frame NHL scouts love. His work at the combine was also a good indicator; he won the hand-eye coordination drill, which seems to be a good trait for a netminder, no? He is committed to the NCAA’s Denver Pioneers. Draft eligible in 2010.
