Huberdeau's stock can't get any higher

The last game of junior hockey's 2010-11 season, Saint John's 3-1 victory over host Mississauga in the Memorial Cup final, was suspenseful enough, but something less than a classic. If the game will be remembered down the line it will mostly be on account of the public emergence of Jonathan Huberdeau, who scored the final goal on an impressive deke around a flailing Majors goaltender J.P. Anderson. For that goal and for a few other moments Huberdeau deservedly won the player-of-the-tournament award for the very young Sea Dogs team that dominated the QMJHL this season and the championship tournament. Will Huberdeau be back to help Saint John repeat? Here's what scouts are saying about his -- and a few other of Saint John's top players' -- draft stock.
