The final under-25 with NHL experience finally makes the grade!

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports
  • Position: Right Wing
  • Height: 6'2"
  • Weight: 201 lbs.
  • League Last Year: AHL, NHL
  • Age This Year: 23
  • Acquired: Drafted 121st overall in the 4th round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Brian Ferlin actually got into 7 NHL games last season, and managed to notch an assist and no penalty minutes in his 62 minutes of ice time. His possession stats weren't super-great, but they weren't atrocious and 7 games isn't exactly a large sample. Most of the time was played with Jordan Caron and Chris Kelly, followed by Gregory Campbell. Poor guy. After his short stint in Boston, he returned to Providence where he finished the season.

Prior to last year, he was at Cornell, where he did well. He was 5th, 2nd, and 1st on his team in scoring during his three years there. Of course, that best season was only good for 121st in the whole of the NCAA. And only 10 of those guys were defenseman.

It may be that I'm being too harsh on him, but come on - who wears Jagr's 68? Come on, kiddo.
