Brendan Ranford, a 7th round pick by the Phildelphia Flyers in 2010, scored a goal and assisted on four more to cap off a five-point night in the Kamloops Blazers 7-2 win over Seattle in WHL action.

The short but speedy winger scored just once in his first two games of the WHL season, but the big game reminded us of his potential. He scored 92 points in just 69 games last year for the Blazers, and that total is likely to increase with an extra year of development under his belt.

Brendan Ranford, who currently has a 5-foot-10, 195-pound frame, would like to shed about 10-15 pounds this summer.

Ranford acknowledges that his weight and conditioning are aspects he needs to work on. After being selected with the 209th overall pick in 2010, he turned some heads by scoring 24 goals and 44 points in his first 26 WHL games. However, he didn't stay in shape as the season progressed and as a result he ended up with 42 points in his final 44 contests. His 86 point season was still a WHL career-high, but it also makes us wonder how well he could do if his conditioning was better.
