With all the Bruin's excitement this year, it's also worth updating the Baby B’s for their good play as they recently won the Atlantic Division regular season. Georgii Merkulov led the team in scoring his rookie year (24 goals, 55 points) setting himself up as a decent prospect moving forward. Fabian Lysell had 14 goals and 23 assists in 54 games at only 19, then 20 years of age – which I assume is well below the average prospect age in the AHL (I’m guessing around 22-23 since AAA in baseball is 23-24 and baseball is a bit older sport). A good start for Fabian imo but obviously depends on how he builds moving forward. Team MVP Brandon Bussi was outstanding in goal and had a cup of coffee with the big club at the end of the season. Mason Lohrei had one assist in the 5 regular season games he played. As division champ, they start their playoffs in the second round this Friday.
Prospects playing for Providence now:
  • Lysell
  • Frederic Brunet
  • Brett Harrison
  • Merkolov
  • John Beecher
  • Lohrei
  • Marc McLaughlin
  • Bussi
Should be intereresting to see how they do in the playoffs.

Dans Locmelis scored his first goal at the World Hockey Championships to help Latvia upset Sweden.
While none of the teams were exactly star-studded, it leaves a final four of USA, Canada, Latvia and Germany.
I don't think many would have predicted those last 2 teams.

Haven't done a good job of keeping up with the prospects this year. Bye week though!

USHL

Chris Pelosi (F, Sioux Falls) 34 games 16-21=37
Beckett Hendrickson (F, Sioux Falls) 34 games 14-20=20

NCAA

Oskar Jellvik (F, Boston College) 23 games 11-12=23
Andre Gasseau (F, Boston College) 23 games 8-11=19
Ty Gallagher (D, Boston University) 22 games 0-3=3
Riley Duran (F, Providence) 23 ganes 7-5=12
Philip Svedeback (G, Providence ) 23 games .898
Dans Locmelis (F, UMass Amherst) 15 ganes 5-2=7
Ryan Walsh (F, Cornell) 19 games 7-4=11
Cole Spicer (F, Minnesota-Duluth) 17 games 5-4=9
Quinn Olson (F, Minnesota-Duluth) 25 games 3-14=17
Jake Schmaltz (F, North Dakota) 22 games 0-7=7
Mason Langenbrunner (D, Harvard) 19 games 0-4=4

CHL

Jackson Edward (D, London) 41 games 5-16=21
Reid Dyck (G, Swift Current) 17 games .901

Europe

Jonathan Myrenberg (D, Swedish League) 37 games 1-7=8
Casper Nassen (F, Swedish Junior League) 29 games 6-11=17
Kristian Kostadinski (D, Swedish Junior League) 36 games 3-11=14

Of the NCAA guys, this is the last year of control for Olson. Not sure if he's done enough to get a contract. They also need to make a decision on Reid Dyck, his control ends this season. Duran, Gallagher and Schmaltz become free agents after next season so they probably make a decision on those 3 this year. I think Duran and Gallagher get signed. A surprise could be Jellvik but I think he goes back for another season.

So looking forward to the NCAA tournament/frozen four with BC so strong this year and our top two NCAA prospects (Jellvik and Gasseau) BCers. Actually, maybe our ONLY two decent NCAA prospects based on the numbers

Dan Locmelis the C at UMass is a good prospect. He has a good international track record. He was 7-7-14 after a BS NCAA suspension to start the year. He definitely got better as he adjusted to North America hockey, but a nice transition year

Ryan Walsh the C at Cornell also had a good Freshman year.

Obviously you want to see both have that leap from their Freshman to their Sophomore year like we saw from Jelvik
