Thomas Spelling continued his high scoring ways, notching a pair of assists in SønderjyskE’s 8-5 win in the Danish Hockeyligaen. Spelling now has a line of 2-5-7 in 5 games this season, which is tied for fourth on the team. MacKenzie Skapski and Ryan Graves were also in action tonight in the CHL.
Thomas Spelling (SønderjyskE, Hockeyligaen; W 8-5): 0 G, 2 A, 12 PIMs, +2
Pavel Buchnevich was the only Rangers prospect in action today, returning to the ice after a one game hiatus due to unknown reasons. Buchnevich was held scoreless in 9:39 of ice time over 11 shifts. Buchnevich also finished with a -1 rating. See below for the full scoring line for Buchnevich.
Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal, KHL; L 3-1): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, -1
Calle Andersson (4th, 2012) and Ryan Graves (4th, 2013) were both in action tonight. Both were held off the scoreboard in their games, but Graves did take two penalties in the second period. One was for checking from behind, the other for holding. Chatlottetown was able to kill off both calls. Be sure to check below for the scoring lines for both prospects in action.
Ryan Graves (Charlottetown Islanders, QMJHL; W 4-3): 0 G, 0 A, 4 PIM, Even
Calle Andersson (Malmo Redhawks, HockeyAllsvenskan; L 3-2): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, Even
Pavel Buchnevich (2013, 3rd) was a late scratch for Severstal of the KHL in their 3-1 loss this afternoon. It is still unknown why he was a late scratch, but it is likely due to some minor or lingering issue. It is something that will be monitored to check the severity. Two other prospects (Tomas Spelling, Anthony Duclair) were also in action tonight. Be sure to check below for their scoring lines for their games.

Anthony Duclair (Quebec Ramparts, QMJHL; L 4-1): 0 G, 0 A 2 PIM, -2
Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal, KHL; L 3-1): Did not play, was a late scratch
Calle Andersson was back in action for Malmo in the HockeyAllsvenskan (2nd tier Swedish league) today, and his Redhawks lost 5-1 to Karlskrona. Andersson was held off the scoreboard today after notching a goal in his Malmo return. Unfortunately I cannot read Swedish, and the game box score only includes goals, assists, and PIMs. That means we won’t have any +/- stats available until someone can point me in a different direction for the box score. (Update: Alex Nunn let me know that Andersson was a -1 this game)
Calle Andersson (Malmo, HockeyAllsvenskan; L 5-1): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, -1
Anthony Duclair added to his hot start with the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL, notching another pair of goals and tacking on an assist in Quebec’s 6-2 win over Rimouski. Across town, fellow 2013 draftee Ryan Graves was held scoreless with four PIMs in a 3-2 shootout win for Charlottetown. Over in the KHL, Pavel Buchnevich was a +1 with 16 shifts for 12:16 TOI in Severstal’s 5-4 overtime loss to Spartak Moscow. See below for full line scores for the two prospects in action today.
Ryan Graves (Charlottetown, QMJHL; SOW 3-2): 0 G, 0 A, 4 PIM, -1
Anthony Duclair (Quebec, QMJHL; W 6-2) 2 G, 1 A 0 PIM, +2
Pavel Buchnevich (Severstal, KHL; OTL 5-4): 0 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, +1
One of the more intriguing prospects in the Rangers system is Calle Andersson, an offensive defenseman currently playing in Sweden’s HockeyAllsvenskan (second tier league). The 19-year-old defenseman is good enough to play in the SHL (top tier Swedish league), but is better served getting the ice time needed for his development in HockeyAllsvenskan. That said, he was suffering from a nagging injury (wrist?) and did not make his 2013 debut until yesterday, notching a powerplay goal in his return. Two other prospects were in action last night as well. See below for their scoring lines from last night.
Calle Andersson (Malmö, HockeyAllsvenskan; W 4-3): 1 G, 0 A, 0 PIM, Even
Troy Donnay (Erie Otters, OHL; W 2-1): 0 G, 0 A, 7 PIM, Even
Four Ranger prospects began their respective CHL seasons last night, all with varying success. Troy Donnay is playing for Erie in the OHL (serves as alternate captain), Makenzie Skapski is playing for Kootenay in the WHL, and Anthony Duclair (Quebec, alternate captain) and Ryan Graves (Charlottetown, alternate captain) are in the QMJHL. Also kicking off their season yesterday was Thomas Spelling, who is playing in the Danish league this year. See below for their line scores from last night’s games:
Pavel Buchnevich (3rd, 2013), fresh off his two goal performance last game, earned top-six time with Severstal in their 6-2 win over Medvescak today. Buchnevich played 13:21 over 14 shifts, finishing with a -1 rating and 1 SOG.
On the season, Buchnevich has a pair of goals, a -4 rating, and 21 SOG in 6 games.
Pavel Buchnevich finally broke through today, scoring a pair of goals in Severstal Cherepovet’s 4-2 victory. Buchnevich’s goals were scored on the powerplay, and were his first two goals and points of the season. Buchnevich finished the game with the 2 goals, 2 PIMs, 6 SOG, and 18 shifts for 12:21 in ice time.
On the season, Buchnevich has a line of 2-0-2 with 2 PIMs and a -3 rating through 5 games. He also averages about 4 SOG per game.
