>Davis Yet to Find Groove in Rockford
>Hockey’s Future has released it’s assessment of the Chicago Blackhawks minor league prospects and former RedHawk forward Nathan Davis is ranked 14th on the list of the top 19 prospects. Here’s HF’s take on the Rockford IceHog:
In his first professional season out of Miami of Ohio, Nathan Davis has yet to show flashes of the brilliance he displayed in college. He has scored 3 goals and 2 assists this season in 27 games, with a team-worst -7 rating. A fourth-round pick in 2005, the 22-year-old winger will be given plenty of time to find his game in Rockford.
Davis played in today’s game against the Chicago Wolves and registered no points, but was called for a penalty late in the game. Here are his current numbers:
28 games played
Personally, I wonder what affects, if any, Nate is feeling from his shoulder injury that plagued his senior season at Miami. When he’s 100 % healthy, he can put up big numbers, take for example, his junior season, a 50 point season, in which he scored 21 goals. Hopefully, he can find his scoring prowess in the near future.
