Cody Hodgson Named Hockey's Future's Prospect of the Year

And now, based on the same criteria, Hockey’s Future names its first ever selection for prospect of the year, Cody Hodgson.

Hodgson, a 2008 first-round draft choice of the Vancouver Canucks, received the title of Prospect of the Month in November, and earned an honorable mention in both December and March. No other prospect’s name was as oft-included as Hodgson’s for his efforts in the 2008-09 season.

The captain of the OHL’s Brampton Battalion earned and deserved a great deal of respect for his service this season. Hodgson answered the call of duty with an exceptional start, yet truly exploded at the end of the calendar year. As mentioned he was a force in November and December, with 16 goals and 18 assists in 16 games heading into the World Junior Championships. He recorded three hat tricks over that span.

I suppose this comes as no surprise, does it? A big tip of the hat to the Canucks organization for selecting him and also for letting him mature in the OHL this season. It seems to have paid off!
