Around the Farm: St. Croix notches hat trick, four points

March 7, 2013, by

Michael St. Croix had another fantastic game last night, notching his second straight four point game with a hat trick and an assist in Edmonton’s 6-3 win over Regina in the WHL. St. Croix scored Edmonton’s first, third, and fifth goals, and assisted on the sixth goal. All points were scored at even strength. St. Croix finished the game with a +3 rating and 2 PIMs.

In the past two games, St. Croix has a line of 3-5-8, and has four straight multi-point games (5-8-13 in that stretch). Over the entire season, St. Croix has 87 points (36-51-87) in 67 games.

    Gotta say, between Miller, St. Croix and Nieves, the Rangers’ future at centre looks pretty good.

  2. RangerTex says:

    There is a raging debate about StCroix’s upside. Everybody agrees he has the offensive skills, the debate is whether he has the size and the defensive skills to stick.
    Well he is 6.0 and 180 at 19 years. He needs few more pounds, but he is not small. This year he has been working on his play away from the puck and he is at almost the same pace as last season.
    He is the only prospect in the Rangers org at this point with such offensive talent, I think he will be a top 6.

  3. Jess says:

    St. Croix was named CHL player of the week before the game which was second time he won that.

    Dave your numbers on St. Croix are incorrect as he is 3-5-8 in his last 2 games as he was 0-4-4 against Everett and 3-1-4 against Regina.

    First time he has ever had back to back 4 point games.

    I have watched St. Croix the last 2 years and agree he needs more muscle to his body but he has worked hard to improve on defense.

    He will never be a checking center but Edmonton has used him on the PK and taking defensive zone draws this season.

    His biggest contributions to the Rangers will be on the power play as he is 19-21-40 on the power play this year.

  5. RangerTex says:

    I hope that he won’t be just a PP specialist. He has the hands, the skating and the vision to be much more.

    We simply do not have this kind of talent in the prospect pool, by next March he will be knocking on the door.

    In the current debate on who plays 3C on the Rangers, we should be patient and not trade any assets for non UFA centers. There are 2 kids coming up soon that will surprise a lot of fans, Lindberg and St Croix.
