FlamesNation Prospect Update: One more week

There’s only one more week of prospect regular season action and then their seasons are over. Isn’t it funny how fast time flies?

In case you missed it:

Dillon Dube – F, Stockton Heat, AHL – X

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 37 15 24 39 23 28 17 42.01
Change from last week

With two games left in the Stockton season, I would be surprised if the Flames sent Dube down. With Stockton officially eliminated from playoff contention, I can’t see a reason for the team to get him two extremely meaningless games in, especially when they think he might see NHL playoff action at some point.

Zach Fischer – RW, Rapid City Rush, ECHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 40 6 9 15 12 9 7 8.61
Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.45

Two games, no points for Fischer. Also, he got called up to the Heat. He’s only played in the ECHL so far this season.

Spencer Foo – RW, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 64 16 21 37 23 28 16 23.03
Change from last week 2 0 1 1 1 1 1 -0.11

Just a single point for Foo this week. Unfortunately, this upcoming week might be his last as a member of the Flames.

Glenn Gawdin – C/RW, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 61 11 25 36 14 26 10 23.52
Change from last week 2 0 3 3 2 3 2 +1.23

Three primary assists for Gawdin in Stockton’s 6-2 takedown of the Manitoba Moose. He’s had a pretty good yet under the radar season.

Josh Healey – D, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 52 1 8 9 7 4 4 6.9
Change from last week 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.13

Just one game this week as Stockton figures out their defensive depth.

D’Artagnan Joly – RW/C, Rimouski Oceanic

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1
Playoffs 6 1 2 3 2 2 1

The Oceanic are squaring off against Cape Breton in the second round, a series that is currently tied 1-1. Joly has yet to hit the scoresheet in round two.

Pavel Karnaukhov – LW/C, CSKA Moscow, KHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1
Playoffs 8 2 0 2 2 2 2

CSKA’s season is down to the wire. The Red Army will face off against SKA in Game 7 with a trip to the Gagarin Cup on the line. Karnaukhov has scantly played this postseason, yet he does have two goals.

Linus Lindstrom – C/LW, Skelleftea AIK, SHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1
Playoffs 6 0 0 0 0 0 0

Skelleftea was knocked out by Djurgardens in the first round of the SHL playoffs, so Lindstrom is totally done for the year. He played six playoff games and didn’t make much of an impact.

Ryan Lomberg – LW, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 55 12 13 25 17 20 11 18.11
Change from last week 2 2 0 2 1 2 1 +0.82

Two goals for Lomberg this week. He was one assist away from a Gordie Howe hat trick this weekend.

Adam Ollas Mattsson – D, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 62 6 12 18 12 9 6 11.57
Change from last week 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.19

Played once and healthy scratched once.

Andrew Nielsen – D, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 34 0 7 7 4 3 2 8.2
Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.52

Finally made his way back into the lineup after Juuso Valimaki was called up by the Flames. Didn’t have the same on-ice impact, however.

Mathias Emilio Pettersen – C/LW, Denver Pioneers, NCAA (NCHC)

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 40 6 24 30 18 19 11 27
Change from last week

Frozen Four action will kick off on Thursday, as Denver faces UMass in the semifinals. Should be a good one for Pettersen and co.

Matthew Phillips – RW, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 60 13 22 35 24 29 22 22.5
Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.74

No points for Phillips this week. Hopefully he can put something special together for the end of the season.

Brett Pollock – LW/C, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 50 3 9 12 8 8 5 9.56
Change from last week 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.2

Finally got back into action after three weeks on the sidelines. Didn’t do much with his TOI.

Martin Pospisil – C/LW, Sioux City Musketeers, USHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 43 16 46 62 30 45 21 33.11
Change from last week 2 1 4 5 3 4 2 +2.19

It’s crazy how frequent four- or five-point weeks are for Pospisil. When he’s dialed in, he’s the best player in the USHL. Hopefully that can translate to the NHL.

Milos Roman – C, Vancouver Giants, WHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1
Playoffs 8 1 2 3 0 3 0

Vancouver is currently up 2-0 on provincial rival Victoria, but mostly without Roman’s help. The centreman hasn’t picked up a point since Game 5 of the first round series, and hasn’t scored a goal since the opening game.

Adam Ruzicka – C/LW, Sudbury Wolves, OHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1
Playoffs 6 1 6 7 4 3 2

The Wolves are facing a more difficult challenge in round two, and are finding themselves down 2-0 to the Ottawa 67’s. Ruzicka chipped in a goal and two assists in Game 1, so it’s not entirely his fault.

Filip Sveningsson – LW, IK Oskarshamn, Allsvenskan

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1
Playoffs 12 0 4 4 2 3 2

Sveningsson and Oskarshamn completed the comeback, turning a 3-2 SHL qualification series deficit against Timra into a series win and automatic SHL promotion. Sveningsson’s meteoric rise continues, having won the Superelit title last year and the Allsvenskan title this year. Lots of hope for this kid.

Eetu Tuulola – RW, HPK, SM-Liiga

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1
Playoffs 7 1 2 3 1 2 0

HPK and Tappara are currently tied 1-1 in their series. Tuulola added the primary assist on HPK’s fourth goal to ice Tappara in Game 2.

Rinat Valiev – D, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 54 4 17 21 12 15 9 15.79
Change from last week 2 1 0 0 1 1 1 +0.46

A goal for Valiev this week, his fourth with the club.

Dmitri Zavgorodniy – C/LW, Rimouski Oceanic, QMJHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1
Playoffs 6 4 2 6 4 4 2

An assist for Zavgorodniy this week. He’s had an impact so far for Rimouski, but he’s hot and cold.

Jon Gillies – G, Stockton Heat

GP TOI SV%
Up to date 41 2469 0.889
Change from last week 1 58 +0.002

Had a great game, stopping 30 of 31 (.967 SV%) this week. He’s really found his form late this season.

Mason McDonald – G, Kansas City Mavericks

GP TOI SV%
Up to date 36 2046 0.915
Change from last week 2 120 +0.001

KC clinched a playoff spot this week and will face familiar foes the Tulsa Oilers in the ECHL playoffs. Who says there aren’t any more meaningful Battles of Alberta?

McDonald had a great week, too. Stopped 37 of 40 (.925 SV%) and 20 of 21 (.952 SV%). His recent great goaltending has helped push the Mavericks back into contention.

Tyler Parsons – G, Stockton Heat

GP TOI SV%
Up to date 16 847 0.899
Change from last week 1 64 +0.003

Had himself a great week too, stopping 36 of 38 (.947 SV%) in his one start this road trip.

Nick Schneider – G, Kansas City Mavericks

GP TOI SV%
ECHL Up to date 21 1262 0.893
Change from last week 1 63 +0.003
AHL Up to date 11 220 0.922
Change from last week

Although he was only limited to one start, another good game for Schneider. He stopped 35 of 38 (.921 SV%) in his one appearance this week.

  • Stockton's Finest

    The Heat have 3 games left.

    Interesting that the Flames, Hitmen, and Mavericks all make the playoffs. Who’s missing? Oh, that’s right.. the team that exists to develop players only.

    • MDG1600

      I feel bad for you SF – I really expected a better result for Stockton this year and it somehow went sideways again. Management needs to do a better job on all fronts to make Stockton more competitive. Hopefully next year you will see better and more prospects and some better choices from management on how to round out the roster with some veteran AHL’ers. Steadier goaltending would certainly help.

        • Albertabeef

          In my opinion BT hurt the farm team by parting ways with all the tweeners last summer. Kulak, Wotherspoon, Poirier, and Klimchuk may have actually been helpful to the farm having a more successful season. This was the first time I can remember the Flames saving a roster spot for a rookie D at the beginning of the season. And then play 3 of them and have them do relatively well was a bonus. Drafting well is great but we need better player management for our prospect development team. Our farm system looks as bad as the Oilers NHL team over the past 10-15 years.

          • L.Kolkind

            Speaking of which I wouldn’t part ways with Foo yet, it took him until his 3rd year of NCAA to dominate and he could very well take the next step again next year. His db had him put up 25 points in back-to-back years playing 39 then 36 games before putting up 62 in only 26! He scored 39 in 62 and took a step back, but from readings, he was put in a more defensive role on the 3rd line. I don’t see any harm in keeping him around for 1 more year to see if he can progress and maybe next year Stockton and Calgary can make playoffs.

            Re-read that and it’s a mess to clarify
