It’s nice to see Lohrei dominating that league, but honestly he should be. He’s 6’ 4” and turning 20 in 2 weeks. He might be the oldest drafted guy in the USHL. If he plays like this at Ohio State next year then we might really have something.It’s the USHL. Guessing they don’t have have super slow mo or a camera above the goal line haha.
Regardless, it’s nice to see Lohrei dominate. With Beecher struggling and not much else in the way of high end talent, Lohrei (and Schmaltz) have been bright spots.
Draft position always impacts our perception, fair or not. But that’s not why I made that comment. A 20 year old in the USHL that was good enough to get drafted should be dominant in that league. Especially a 6’ 4” 20 year old.It is funny how draft position impacts our perception. They took him 60th overall this year as an overager so we qualify everything with his age. If they had taken him as a flier in the 7th round in 2019, we’d be ecstatic and wondering why he was still available late and I doubt we’d be qualifying all comments with a note about his age. He is the same age, but it’s be a completely different perception of the player.
Zach Senyshyn continued his strong play. He made a nice play to set up a goal by Brady Lyle against Bridgeport, then scored a goal and added an assist against Hartford. This is his best stretch of games in his four seasons with the P-Bruins. He is leading the team in goals with four and is second in points with seven. Senyshyn is putting himself in good position for a callup if Boston needs a winger.
I see in that article that Jack Ahcan also "continued his strong play." I wonder if we'll see him get a call up at some point. D with a left-handed shot.
Providence’s goaltending has been second to none from the start. Dan Vladar played well in Hartford and Jeremy Swayman extended his record to 5-0 with the win over Bridgeport. Swayman (.935) and Vladar (.934) are in the top 10 in the AHL in save percentage.
He's probably not an NHL consideration for another 2-3 years.I’ve been impressed by Swayman’s stats from Maine and also seeing him in person at college a couple years ago.
Is be a legit #1 prospect? If so, backup next year and be the guy in 22’-23’ type timeline?
Keith Petruzzelli is a nice get as a camp invite. 3rd round pick of the Red Wings who isn’t signing.Was very good the past 2 seasons at Quinnipiac. I have to think he’s going to be a possible free agent signing. He’s also from Massachusetts.They're having something of a Development Camp next week. Roster below, all North American players. Covid restrictions keeping the European based players away. So unfortunately no Fabian Lysell.
F: Johnny Beecher, Riley Duran, Parker Ford*, Andre Gasseau, Tyler Gratton*, Curtis Hall, Brett Harrison, Matthew Kopperud*, Trevor Kuntar, Reed Lebster*, Marc McLaughlin*, Benjamin Myers*, Quinn Olson, Jake Schmaltz, Alex-Olivier Voyer
D: Ty Gallagher, JD Greenway*, Mason Langenbrunner, Mason Lohrei, Brady Lyle, Anton Malmstrom*, Ryan Mast, Dustyn McFaul, Travis Mitchell*, Brandon Scanlin*
G: Kyle Keyser, Zachary Stejskal*, Keith Petruzzelli*
*= camp invite
Obviously a lot of invites with no Euro's coming to town. 2021 draft picks are Brett Harrison, Andre Gasseau, Ty Gallagher are coming. The entire 2020 class (Lohrei, Kuntar, Langenbrunner, Duran) also are getting their first experience with the organization. Greenway is noted as an invite but was apparently acquired in a trade with Toronto last week. They have until 8/15 to decide if they want to sign him. Beecher, Lohrei and Harrison are probably the highest ranked prospects attending.
