Top 5 Calgary Flames Prospects

#5 Andrew Mangiapane was selected in the 5th round of the 2015 NHL draft.  He could be a potential steal. Andrew finished in the top 10 for OHL points.  The only reason he fell so low is because of his size.  At 5′ 10″, weighing 170 lbs, this guy’s a sniper! With 43 goals and 104 points in 68 games,  you don’t see this kind of player every day.

#4 Emile Poirier spent the season with the Adirondack Flames (AHL).  He played six games, only getting one assist. Poirier may may not be NHL ready but is a speedy power forward who can drive the net and  score very easily. He put up 19 goals and 42 points in 55 games with Adirondack. Emile was selected 22nd overall by the Flames in 2015. (RW)

#3 Mark Jankowski has taken some time to develop, but it looks like it will be worth it. In the 2014-15 season, Jankowski won the national championship with Providence. Jankowski has 28 goals and 70 points in the 110 games played with Providence where he will be going into his senior year.  Mark was the 24th overall pick in the 2012 NHL entry draft. (C)

#2 Hunter Smith is a very good two-way forward.  With his 6’6″ 210 pound body, he can hit, screen, tip in and block. He also has a offensive upside to him.  In the 2014-15 season, with the Oshawa Generals, Smith had 23 goals and 49 points in 57 games played. He does have some discipline issues to work on; he racked up 122 penalty minutes throughout the season. The Flames drafted him 54th overall in the 2013 NHL entry draft, and signed him to a entry level deal this off-season. (RW)

#1 Oliver Kylington is a smart, fast skating defenseman that plays a two way game. Oliver split the 2014-15 season between Farjestad, of the Swedish Hockey League, and AIK, of Sweden’s second division. He also suited up for ten games with Farjestad’s junior team.  Internationally, Kylington has played for Sweden at the 2014 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge and the 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament. He couldn’t  to play in the 2015 World Junior Championship because of injury. (LD)
