  • Now that we’ve hit the start of the NHL season(and around the midpoint of most Euro leagues, let’s break down the prospect pool, shall we? Listen to me now, believe me later and this will save you a lot of pain.

    KHL
    Vitali Kravtsov (Traktor)
    Playing the right way, had a dry spell due to poor lineup choices, no visibility on his viability on a NHL roster (right now) until the trade deadline. Well ahead of Buch at the same age on size & production. A keeper.
    Yegor Rykov (CSKA)
    Half a chance he comes over after the season, zero if no Calder Cup. A rotation guy on a hood KHL team is maybe 2nd pair in the A, but there’s no path forward. Will be qualified as a CYA move, but…Das vedanya, tovarich.

    SHL

    Nils Lundkvist (Lulea)
    Playing great, have loved his D, love the O, can’t really see him as much more than really good trade bait considering future roster construction unless Fox really outperforms before his bridge contract.

    Adam Edstrom (Rogle)
    Big, can skate, got pushed up the lineup when Höglander reported to VAN, need to see if production increases(not counting on it considering how Hogs was handcuffed on that line.) Ceiling is bottom 6, more like 4th liner.

    Karl Henriksson (Frölunda)
    He always was going to have a long path to the NHL and the Covid case at the worst time for him hurt a little, but what hurt worse was being tied to an anchor like Hank’s brother Joel this year.
    Pushed on to wing to drive play but not upset the C, it’s been a bad idea from day one. A loan to Allsvenskan would’ve been best for his development.

    Has a shot, but a long one. A better pick in the 3rd.

    Calle Sjalin (Leksands)
    Yes, he’s still a prospect under control; yes, he’s usually playing 1sr pair, no he’s not really producing considering the ice time.
    Offering him at this point only really makes sense if something goes horribly wrong elsewhere in the organization, but it’s a little comfort that the guy got a chance after a rough couple of years to unleash his potential and did so.

    A hummingbird feather in the cap for the Swedish scouts.

    Liiga
    Leevi Aaltonen (Kalpa)
    If the hands ever catch up with the skates, look out: just don’t hold you breath.

    Lauri Pajuniemi (TPS)
    Last go round on I called him a homeless man’s Ovechkin and guess who won the pony? Less than .5 goals per game in Liiga along with $10 will get him into a Wolf Pack game next season.

    Allsvenskan
    Olof Lindbom (Mora)
    Look, Mora is a rubbish team in a so-so league, so the team in front of him affects his sv%, but the guy he shares the cage with is 14 points above him and is now taking the supermajority of starts while a year younger.

    Not a prospect anymore.

    Jakob Ragnarsson (Timra)
    Bouncing between 2nd & 3rd pair, the step up never happened. But at least his Dad can brag two generations of his family got drafted.

    Never a prospect.

    Oliver Tarnstrom (Hanvikens)
    Another guy with a loooong runway, he wasn’t even dominant in J20. Beyond painfully thin, needs 4 years to fill out just to have him spend 2 years in Hartford to get to NHL weight. Will be a good player for AIK in a couple of years, has a chance to make it…to Hartford. After that, who knows.

    HC J20 (Sweden)
    Hugo Ollas (Linkoping)
    Who knows: they haven’t played in months. One would hope he hit the gym during the downtime to lose a couple dozen kilos.

    NCAA
    Zac Jones (UMass Amherst)
    Haven’t seen him, but doing well. Has same career path issues every other D facing on Broadway, can still make the show.

    Eric Ciccolini (Michigan)
    Saw him week 1, looked good, but screwed for a while with loaded Michigan team, tough to spread your wings on 3rd line.

    Brett Berard (Providence)
    Loved what I saw at MJC. Little guy full of piss & vinegar

    Riley Hughes (Northeastern)
    Haven’t seen boo, Hockey East is a bit goofy on where to watch.

    2021 World Juniors
    Braden Schneider (Canada)
    Asides from the hit, not a bad WJC, even if it showed he’s more a 3rd pair guy in the long run.

    Dylan Garand (Canada)
    Hey, he made the team, so in a few years he’s Shestyorkin l’s backup.

    Hunter Skinner (Team USA)
    Another painfully skinny guy who needs a long runway who loused that up by going to junior instead of college. At least he got a game in and didn’t set his hair on fire. I want him to pan out, but see other D above. Hopefully they can turn him into trade bait
