Observations:

November 2017 - Noah Gregor continues to progress with the Moose Jaw Warriors. He is currently sitting on nine goals and 15 assists in 17 games for the Warriors and was held pointless in two contests in the Russia/Canada series. He still has not signed his entry-level contract with the Sharks but plenty of time is left before the draft to get that part done. Gregor has top-nine potential and has shown growth each season since his draft year. Gregor is currently on pace for a 101 point season playing on the Warriors top line. Zachary DeVine

January 2017 - Once again it looks like San Jose reached into the latter stages of the NHL entry draft and plucked a talented, responsible center who can play in a variety of situations and up and down the lineup. Gregor was a point-per-game player last year for Moose Jaw and is ahead of that pace already with the WHL's regular season over the halfway mark. The versatile pivot was the anchor on Moose Jaw's second line and was impressive in his defensive play as well as offensive ability once the play turned up ice. Gregor recently underwent a "minor" knee procedure stemming from an injury suffered Jan. 7 against the Regina Pats. He is expected to return to the Warriors in late February. Zachary DeVine

June 2016 - The San Jose Sharks selected Noah Gregor with the 111th overall selection in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft as the young center slid to the fourth round.  Gregor was projected as a second or third round selection, and the Sharks got good value late in the fourth round.  Last year for the Moose Jaw Warriors in the WHL, Gregor recorded 82 points in 82 combined regular and postseason contests. Skating with Dryden Hunt and Brayden Point, Gregor was a responsible center which likely hurt his point totals some. However, he has an excellent shot and shows good offensive instincts as well. His patience and confidence with the puck on his stick is something that stands out as well. Gregor will need to pack on some mass, as at 174 pounds, despite an ability to work the corners, he lost more battles than you would like.  

Gregor is a 200-foot player that competes in all three zones and uses solid hockey sense and above average skating and often in the right place at the right time. After breaking his collarbone in his rookie campaign and missing the majority of the season, Gregor was able to bounce back and played on the Warriors top line. Gregor will likely return to Moose Jaw for his third WHL season. Zachary DeVine

 

Fantasy Outlook C+

Needs to put on weight, but projects as an effective two-way pivot in the middle of the lineup.
