FlamesNation prospect update: on the road

The Calgary Flames are in the midst of a crucial road trip. The Stockton Heat are on their way back from scenic Iowa.

Let’s see how the prospects are doing!

In case you missed it:

Lucas Feuk- LW, AIK, Superelit/Allsvenskan

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe

Feuk didn’t play for AIK this week, instead suiting up for Sweden at the Under-19 Five Nations Tournament in Germany. He had an assist over four games playing in the national team’s bottom six.

Glenn Gawdin- RW, Stockton Heat, AHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 32 4 8 12 7 7 5 18.33

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 38 6 7 13 8 9 5 16.72

Up to date 21 11 9 20 13 16 11 37.95
Change from last week

Mitchell Mattson- LW, Michigan State, NCAA (Big 10)

Up to date 14 0 1 1 1 0 0 1.95
Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.33

Mattson hasn’t gotten a second point yet, but at least he’s dressing for every game lately.

Andrew Nielsen- D, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 39 0 5 5 4 3 3 5.11
Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.28

As per usual, Nielsen didn’t register a point this past week. He’s the last asset in a chain that stretches back to Kent Nilsson’s drafting back in the ’70s.

Ilya Nikolayev- C, Loko, MHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 48 17 14 31 23 24 19 16.41
Change from last week 3 0 1 1 0 0 0 -0.54

Nikolayev continues to be a reliable two-way presence for Loko. While his scoring pace has slowed recently, he’s already set career offensive highs (albeit in the MHL).

Joshua Nodler- C/RW, Michigan State

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 28 2 4 6 2 6 2 5.85
Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.45

Nodler has settled into a top six center role for the Spartans, but he hasn’t registered a point yet in 2020.

Jakob Pelletier- LW, Moncton Wildcats, QMJHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 43 24 40 64 35 49 29 34.66
Change from last week 3 2 1 3 1 3 1 -0.85

Pelletier seems to be getting his mojo back after missing some time with a concussion. It’s the second week in a row he’s had a point-per-game week. He’s 11th in scoring in the QMJHL.

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

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 28 8 17 25 13 16 11 32.14
Change from last week

Denver was off this week.

Matthew Phillips- RW, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 28 14 16 30 22 27 21 42.70
Change from last week

Phillips remains out with a kneecap injury, but he’s skating again.

Luke Philp- C, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 41 16 9 25 19 23 19 24.30
Change from last week 2 1 0 1 1 1 1 -0.22

Another week, another goal for Philp. His scoring pace has slowed down a tad, but he’s having a very respectable rookie campaign.

Martin Pospisil- C/LW, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 14 0 2 2 2 1 1 5.69

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 50 17 15 32 20 29 20 15.85
Change from last week 3 2 2 4 2 4 2 +1.10

Roman has registered points in each of his past five games. However, Vancouver had games where they scored 12 and 7 goals this week so temper your expectation a bit – a raising offensive tide raises all boats.

Adam Ruzicka- C, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 42 7 10 17 12 14 10 16.13
Change from last week 2 0 2 2 2 2 2 +1.19

Ruzicka has quietly had a pretty impressive rookie season. He had an assist in each game this week.

Filip Sveningsson- LW, IK Oskarshamn, SHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 27 2 2 4 4 4 4 7.24

Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 -0.72

Rinat Valiev- D, Stockton Heat

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 37 2 6 8 7 4 4 8.61
Change from last week 2 1 0 1 1 1 1 +0.64

Valiev doubled his goal total this week, scoring his second of the season.

Dmitri Zavgorodniy- C/RW, Rimouski Oceanic, QMJHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 31 22 33 55 29 38 23 41.32
Change from last week 3 4 2 6 5 4 4 +0.57

Zavgorodniy is back in the swing of things, with two multi-point/multi-goal games this week. He’s 23rd in scoring despite missing several weeks with a collarbone injury.

Jon Gillies- G, Stockton Heat

GP TOI SV%
Up to date 23 1288 0.910
Change from last week 2 98 -0.003

Gillies saw his numbers dip a bit in five periods of hockey this week.

Tyler Parsons- G, Kansas City Mavericks

GP TOI SV%
Up to date 20 1080 0.914
Change from last week 2 118 -0.003

Parsons had two starts, one of them a bit rocky, so his numbers trended down a bit. Still, he’s stabilized the net in KC and is obviously the better of their two goaltenders.

Nick Schneider- G, Kansas City Mavericks/Stockton Heat

GP TOI SV%
AHL Up to date 1 60 0.937
Change from last week
ECHL Up to date 30 1703 0.880
Change from last week 2 123 +0.002

Good news: Schneider has gotten his save percentage out of the .870s. Bad news: it’s still in the .880s.

Dustin Wolf- G, Everett Silvertips, WHL

GP TOI SV%
Up to date 36 2113 0.936
Change from last week 3 173 0.000

A weird week for Wolf: a shutout, a game where he gave up a single goal, and a game that became a bit of a zoo against Seattle (so coach pulled him with five minutes left).

Artyom Zagidulin- G, Stockton Heat

GP TOI SV%
Up to date 24 1258 0.896
Change from last week 1 20 -0.004

Zagidulin gave up four goals in one period and got yanked in favour of Gillies in his only start.
