Atlanta Thrashers Prospect Patrice Cormier Has Suffered Enough

June 5th, 2010 by Warren Shaw Leave a reply »

Atlanta Thrasher prospect Patrice Cormier has had some highs and lows in his quest to become a NHL player.

His passion, talent and desire with Rouyn-Noranda made him a natural to lead Canada as the captain of the world junior team.  

He was a high second-round draft choice of the New Jersey Devils and was dealt to the Atlanta Thrashers as part of the Kovalchuk deal that also brought the Thrashers Bergfors and Oduya.

Hockey watchers viewed the Atlanta trade as an opportunity for Cormier to gain playing time in his rookie season, a boon for his future as a regular.

New GM Rick Dudley even commented positively on the prospect of Cormier making the big leagues next season in an Atlanta uniform.
