Anyone know a site that can give us a prospect update of actual signed prospects? With the 3 this last 2 weeks, Im wondering who from last years draft such as Becker, Williams, Briscoe, Hickey, Mrkonjic, etc.... have signed or are possible to sign. Having searched I do not believe any have done so but I could be wrong. Seems like our blue line is filling up with solid prospects if we can get some of these players signed and developed into WHL players.
There's no site I know of but...

the Ams are pretty good about announcing their signings. There was a tweet by Kody Ichinaga the other day that the Ams retweeted. It basically thanked Bob Tory and Parnetta (I think) for coming down. You can infer that from that that Bob was in California visiting and likely trying to sign some of our SoCal kids.
As far as I know, Max Becker, Brian Williams (96), Ryan Tait, and our most recent California bantam picks, Robbie Jackson, Evan Sarthou and Ty Comrie (although I'm assuming Comrie will) all have yet to sign. I'd guess Bob would visit the Arizona drafted kids too sometime this summer.
But some of the players that haven't signed have probably not been offered to sign yet. I would think the team would wait for training camp to see which of the middle or later round picks should get offers.

Ever wonder how those SoCal kids are going to work out? The foundation for the past success was built on Western Canadian kids. Now BT hires Parnetta and there is a bias towards some southern kids. Time will tell but we will see if those kids will be able to maintain the Ams tradition of winning.
my point of view

I can understand that notion, however in all honesty the Americans have sort of zigged when everyone else zagged. The used to have to do that Pre Stu & Olie ownership days as no one really wanted to play here. Bloodoff, toews, etc... They than went into Winnipeg and scouted hard having Price see success helped as well. Now Manitoba is activly being scouted as hard as BC and Alberta by all teams. Bob, then moved into CA and the western states as prior there have been several good players to come from there but by no means was a hotbed. With the emergence and long standing relationship of Bob and the Comrie family I believe this opened that as a new pipeline. In the process of scoutiing CA kids they also found othe Western US kids and started drafting them. Are we worried? I for one am not. I believe most AMs fans can remember the dark days of Togio and Porter. We can remember prices going up each season ticket year and the on-ice product being lackluster. I for one believe Bob has earned the right to make a few mistakes (crosses fingers). He has done so much right, if there is time he falters then we as fans, have to remember what he and the current ownership have done to put the Ams in a positive light. No, we have not won the WHL or the MC. We are at least respectable and can contend every few years. I have the utmost faith that they know what they are doing.
