If Randy says Chris Treuhl can play then beleive him. Randy is the one that got Joey Shawhen from Northern Michigan to come up & take a look at Mike Doan with the Soo Thunderbirds 2 yrs ago when no one else outside of here did not know the who the hell Mike Doan was. Shawhen took 2 or 3 looks at Mike Doan and was sold on him as a D-1 goalie. So what I am saying is that if Randy says Chris Treuhl is a goalie then mark my words the kid is!

Nathan Glass may have been bypassed at the recent 2012 National Hockey League draft but the 1994 birth year defenceman has earned a tryout to this summer's rookie camp of the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.
Glass, to be sure, has history on his side in being tapped by the Los Angeles scouts.
The Kings are known for inviting players to camp and later signing them as 19-year old free agents or draft picks.
Recent examples are four players from the Ontario Hockey League Soo Greyhounds.
As 19-year olds, defenceman Andrew Campbell was drafted by Los Angeles in 2008 and blueliner Jake Muzzin and left winger Jordan Nolan both signed with the Kings in 2009. And at this year's June 23, 2012 NHL draft, Los Angeles took 19-year old defenceman Colin Miller in the fifth round from the Greyhounds.
As for the 17-year old Glass, he is coming off his rookie 2011-12 season in the OHL with the last-place Erie Otters, for whom he took a regular shift and played in 61 games, collecting six assists.
A Florida native, Glass was a top four defenceman as a 16-year old rookie in helping the Soo Eagles to the 2010-11 Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League championship.
