This might not end up being Sam Bennett's auld lang syne to his junior hockey days, then the Calgary Flames No. 4 overall choice certainly made it a good one. Just watch how routine the 18-year-old NHL hopeful made an end-to-end scoring rush look during his potential final time on the ice with the Kingston Frontenacs last Friday. After winning a puck a battle in the corner, Bennett peeled away from a check, gained the zone and finished off by tucking a shot under the goalie's blocker.

That's pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.

 

Of course, Bennett might have another year in Kingston ahead of him yet.

From Mark Spector (@sportsnetspec):

The Flames kept Sean Monahan last season after drafting him No. 6 overall from the OHL's Ottawa 67's. That was, however,  before Brian Burke took power as the club's president of hockey operations. Burke has certain ideas about putting a teenager in the NHL full-time, which will be something to account for as Calgary decides whether Bennett will be a Flame or a Front. It isn't surprising to see that spin from the Flames.
