Predators Prospect Report (Dec. 5)
false
NashvillePredators.com continues its regular weekly updates on the progress of the Preds prospects playing in various developmental or European professional leagues.

Nashville's 2008 draft class has been hot of late. Goaltender Chet Pickard has found his stride, winning his last five WHL contests. In that span Pickard has picked up a pair of shutouts. Outside of league play, he also added a 16-save shutout of Team Russia in the ADT Canada/Russia Challenge on Nov. 26. The current winning streak has moved Pickard among the WHL leaders in wins, goals against average, save percentage, and shutouts.

Fellow '08 First Round pick Colin Wilson ranks second in the NCAA in scoring with 1.54 points per game (20 points in 13 games), while '08 Second Round pick Roman Josi has four points in his last two games to rank among the top-five in defensemen scoring in the Swiss League.

In international news, Wilson and Preds 2007 First Round pick Jonathon Blum were named to Team USA for the2008 World Junior Championships, which start later this month in Ottawa, Ontario. Pickard was named one of the four goaltenders invited to Team Canada's World Junior Evaluation Camp, which will run from Dec. 11 - 15.
