Friends, let’s check out how all these youngsters are faring.

This and that:

  • Glenn Gawdin is on the Flames’ roster right now, while Johannes Kinnvall and Connor Zary are on the injury reserve list after suffering training camp injuries. Tyler Parsons is non-roster currently.
  • In exhibition action, Stockton beat Bakersfield 3-0 on Friday. Dustin Wolf earned the shutout, while Ryan Olsen (on a try-out), Ryan Francis and Emilio Pettersen scored goals. Stockton’s Sunday exhibition game was cancelled. Stockton begins their regular season on Friday against Tucson.
  • Harvard (home of Flames first rounder Matthew Coronato) plays an exhibition game on Saturday against the University of Ottawa, then begins their regular season on Oct. 29.

Jack Beck – RW, Ottawa 67’s, OHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 3 3 2 5 2 5 2 44.14
Change from last week 3 3 2 5 2 5 2 +44.14

Small sample size alert, but Beck’s off to an excellent start to his season. Yes, he only has a pair of even strength points, but he’s been a driver of offense for the 67’s so far.

Jake Boltmann – D, University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish, NCAA/Big10

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 24.76
Change from last week 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 +24.76

On one hand, Boltmann is currently slotted as Notre Dame’s seventh defenseman. On the other hand, he finally registered his first NCAA point with an assist in Notre Dame’s first game of the season.

He won’t be a point-per-game player often.

Lucas Ciona – LW, Seattle Thunderbirds, WHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 3 1 1 1 1 2 1 16.51

Things aren’t looking too rosy for Feuk. Unable to get regular minutes with Västerviks, he was loaned to Nybro in the Swedish third division (HockeyEttan). He got dinged for 12 penalty minutes in his debut game for a checking from behind incident.

Emil Heineman – LW, Leksands IF, SHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 9 2 0 2 2 2 2 10.86
Change from last week 2 1 0 1 1 1 1 +3.88

Heineman is playing a depth role for Leksands so far, but he’s doing a strong job of it. He’s bouncing around their bottom six, but he’s playing a consistent two-way role and chipping in goals here and there.

Cole Huckins – LW, Acadie-Bathurst Titan, QMJHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 5 0 3 3 2 2 1 13.97
Change from last week 3 0 3 3 2 2 1 +13.97

Huckins bounced back from a quiet initial week for the Titan, putting up three points in three games – he had games of zero, one and two points, respectively.

Cole Jordan – D, Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL

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

Up to date 2 1 1 2 1 1 1 26.49
Change from last week 2 1 1 2 1 1 1 +26.49

In his first game back in the OHL after being drafted by the Flames in 2020, Kerins had two points. In his second game back, he had zero points. It’ll take awhile for him to settle in, probably.

Demetrios Koumontzis – LW, Arizona State University Sun Devils, NCAA/Ind.

Up to date 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0..00

Up to date 2 1 2 3 1 2 1 40.96
Change from last week 2 1 2 3 1 2 1 +40.96

Small sample size alert, but Nodler had a superb start to his junior year with the Spartans. He’s playing as their top centre after a bunch of graduations within the team. MSU might not be a huge powerhouse this season, but Nodler is going to be playing a ton in every key situation.

Ilya Nikolaev – C, Tri-City Storm, USHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 3 0 1 1 0 0 0 7.65

Up to date 4 0 2 2 0 1 0 11.64
