Prospect Watch: October 6, 2010

This is going to be a weekly feature on BSB, where every Wednesday we will take a look at the CHL, NCAA, and International prospects in the Rangers system. Every Saturday we will look at the AHL prospects separately (once the AHL season begins).

The CHL season is underway for many Rangers prospects, and the cream of the prospects is showing why they are so highly touted. Christian Thomas (2nd, 2010) has five goals in three games, Ethan Werek (2nd, 2009) has five points in two games, Ryan Bourque (3rd, 2009) has four points in three games, and Roman Horak (5th, 2009) has a whopping nine points in three games. Carl Hagelin had a difficult start, as he took a checking from behind penalty and a game misconduct in the season opener. Hagelin is a co-captain of the Wolverines, so don’t expect that to be a prelude to an off-year.

Canadian Juniors:

  • Ethan Werek; Kingston Frontenacs, OHL: 2 GP, 2G, 3A, 4 PIM, +4
  • Ryan Bourque; Quebec Remparts, QMJHL: 3 GP, 2G, 2A, 5 PIM, +3
  • Roman Horak; Chilliwack Bruins, WHL: 3 GP, 3G, 6A, 0 PIM, +3
  • Christian Thomas; Oshawa Generals, OHL: 3 GP, 5G, 2A, 0 PIM, +5
  • Dylan McIlrath; Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL: 4 GP, 0G, 0A, 14 PIM, -4
  • Scott Stajcer; Owen Sound Attack, OHL: 3-0-0, 1.00 GAA, .969 SV%


  • Chris Kreider; Boston College: 0 GP, 0G, 0A, 0 PIM, Even
  • Carl Hagelin; Michigan: 1 GP, 0G, 0A, 15 PIM, Even


  • Roman Psurny; HC Slovan Ustecti Lvi, CZ 1.Liga: 7 GP, 4G, 1A, 4 PIM, +2
  • Mikhail Pashnin; CSKA Moscow, KHL: 4 GP, 0G, 0A, 4 PIM, -1

    Hagelin, one game, 15 PIM? haha.

    Love Horak and Werek at 3 and 2.5ppg thus far. With Stepan and AA, that’s a heckuva young center group to build around.

      Horak is probably the biggest surprise because he was a 5th round pick average 3ppg. It won’t last, but that’s damn good.

      Bourque is going to be trade bait IMO.

    This is an excellent idea, Dave. Love it.

      It’s actually jurgenno’s idea, he’s just having internet issues.

    Shouldn’t Pashin be on this list?

    • Oct 6, 2010 at 10:48 am

      I’ll add him, but as per Laurie Carr, he was a scratch in the KHL for a few games.

    Great job guys! Any way we can get McD and Paveltenko added to the Whale Watch?

      I’m sure we can sort something Brian.
      Once the Hartford season begins we’ll actually have a separate feature every week looking at how Hartford, and specifically the prospects are doing.

      If anyone has any suggestions or requests for posts or want us to comment on any subject let us know. I’ve probably got an opinion on pretty much everything! LOL

      We are planning on having the Hartford Whalepack prospects as a separate post, because they are the ones likely to be called up (and there are a ton of them).
