Montreal Canadiens prospect Sean Farrell is off to a blazing start in the USHL. (Chicago Steel)
RotoRob recently had the opportunity to sit down and talk with Montreal Canadiens’ left wing prospect Sean Farrell, who is currently tearing up the USHL for the Chicago Steel.
The Hopkinton, Masssachusetts-native just turned 19 last month, and stands 5’9″, weighing in around 175, although he says he’s added a few pounds to that total.
Taken in the fourth round (124th overall) by Montreal, Farrell’s chief attribute is his passing, which is considered elite, although he considers himself a 200-foot player (see video below for a sense of his skill set). Similar to his Steel teammate Ian Moore, whom we interviewed in October, Farrell is committed to play for Harvard next season.
Among the topics we covered were:
- The opportunity he has to really shine as a leader in his second season with the Steel;
- What’s changed for him this season;
- How he models his game after a pair of players on Boston’s big trio; and
- Which current NHL wingers remind him most of himself.
You can listen to the entire interview below.
RotoRob Tune of the Day
Scottish Funk/R&B group Average White Band got its start in 1972 and, other than a six-year hiatus in the ’80s, is still at it today. In 1996, the band released a compilation album, Pick Up the Pieces – The Ultimate Collection, and from this effort comes “You Got It,” a tune originally released on the 1974 eponymous effort, AWB.
