Stampede's Isackson dreaming big

Kudos to Sioux Falls ABC affiliate KSFY for giving Sabres 2010 seventh rounder Christian Isackson some pub as the Stampede battle the Omaha Lancers in the second round of the Clark Cup playoffs.

The six footer is a prospect who I hope the Sabres are able to connect with over his time at Minnesota. He looked to be a smart, well-rounded player at last summer's prospect camp, and followed up the momentum of being drafted by leading the Herd in scoring this season with 44 points (17+27) in 58 games. You have to love the quote from head coach Kevin Hartzell:

"He's got the offensive moxie and things you can't teach. But under the hood he's got real heart and desire and that gives him a chance."

Sioux Falls will take 1-0 series lead into Omaha for Friday's game #2.
