Who Is: Recap of the '10-'11 Season

Around the halfway point of this season I decided to highlight some under-the-radar players who were producing for their respected squads in a segment I called "Who Is". With the season in the books, it's now time to reflect upon my selections and see who the "hits" and "misses" were.

Hits:
  • Zemgus Girgensons took my applause and vaulted his game to entirely new level: as a '94-born in a league full of '90s and '91s, he finished the year 3rd in team scoring and 19th overall in the USHL.
  • The Rupert twins jumped up within the London Knights' depth charts. Since I posted about them, Ryan scored at a 62-point pace while brother Matt did so at a 32-point pace - numbers that would have placed them at 3rd and 7th in team scoring.
  • Colin Behenna of the Barrie Colts cooled down slightly, but his pace was still good enough to finish tied for 10th in the OHL scoring race.
  • Even though his overall pace dropped off, Etienne Brodeur counts as a hit after posting 15 goals in 21 games after my post. He finished the season 9th in Q scoring and led the league in goals by 6 over Philip-MichaĆ«l Devos, winner of the league scoring title.
Misses:
  • Tyler Maxwell completely fell apart after my post, scoring at a pace less than half of what he was producing at the time I highlighted him.
  • Malcolm Subban didn't have much of a team in front of him this year, but he started getting lit up after taking on a role as the team's 1A goalie. Thankfully he was still able to make Team Canada's U18 team and ended up starting for them.
