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.

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.
