McNeill was named the Western Hockey League's player of the week for his performance with the Prince Albert Raiders. The 19-year old forward racked up seven points, scoring two goals and five assists in the team's last three games, leading the team to a 2-1-0 road record.

Mark McNeill recorded a three-point night with a goal and two assists as Prince Albert took down Swift Current on Wednesday night 5-4.

With the way the Blackhawks' first-rounder from the 2011 draft continues to produce, it may be only a year or two before he's knocking on the doors of the pro level. The 19-year-old has 20 points in 19 games in the WHL, keeping him on pace for his third straight season of at least a point-per-game production. Dallas' 2012 second-rounder Mike Winther also had a good night, scoring and assisting.

Chicago took McNeill with the 18th overall pick in the 2011 NHL entry draft. McNeill is a big and fast forward with 18 goals and 39 points in 37 WHL games this season. He should develop into an NHL-caliber power forward, but it will be years before he has any fantasy value.

The Chicago Blackhawks have returned Mark MacNeill to Prince Albert of the WHL.

The Blackhawks were impressed with their first round pick this season but there is no room in Chicago and he needs a lot more seasoning. "We thought he really got better each and every day — prospect camp, rookie [tournament] and here at our level," coach Joel Quenneville said. "There's a lot to like about him. He's got some great qualities that can make him a special player." MacNeill had 81 points in 70 games last season. Look for an improvement this year.

The Chicago Blackhawks selected WHL star forward Mark McNeil with the 18th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Many will be quick to point out this Prince Albert Raider’s size. He is a strong forward who is only going to get stronger. He plays a great perimeter game, and is very good around the net. McNeill was also one of the fastest skaters at the CHL Top Prospects game. Another major asset is that he is a gritty player with the composure to not let his aggressive nature get him into penalty trouble. McNeill should develop into a very reliable power forward. He may not make an impact in 2011-12, though.
