FlamesNation prospect update: Stockton begins its season

The Calgary Flames’ top minor league club, the Stockton Heat, began their season this week. As such, there are a lot of prospects playing hockey now.

Some are doing better than others. Let’s take a look!

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.
  • Matthew Coronato and Harvard finally get going at the end of the month. They beat Dartmouth over the weekend in an informal scrimmage.
  • Adam Werner and Ilya Solovyov are with Stockton but were healthy scratches this week.

Jack Beck – RW, Ottawa 67’s, OHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 5 5 3 8 3 8 3 42.38
Change from last week 2 2 1 3 1 3 1 -1.76

Beck has continued his previous hot start. He had a three point game, including a game-winning goal. Three of his five goals this season were game-winners for the 67’s.

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

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 3 0 2 2 1 1 0 18.20
Change from last week 2 0 1 1 1 0 0 -6.56

Boltmann had zero points as a freshman last season, and now he’s registered points in consecutive weeks. It’s a bit of a stretch to claim that he’s turned the corner offensively, but he’s managing to get much more involved offensively for the Irish than he did a year ago.

Lucas Ciona – LW, Seattle Thunderbirds, WHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 4 1 1 2 1 2 1 12.38
Change from last week 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 -4.13

Ciona was suspended for two games due to a charging penalty he took over the weekend. He’s got 24 penalty minutes over the first four games of the season.

Walker Duehr – RW, Stockton Heat, AHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 2 1 0 1 1 1 1 19.93
Change from last week 2 1 0 1 1 1 1 +19.93

Duehr scored his first pro goal in Saturday’s win over Tucson.

Lucas Feuk – LW, Västerviks IK, HockeyAllsvenskan / Nybro Vikings IF, HockeyEttan

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Allsvenskan up to date 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.00
Change from last week
HockeyEttan up to date 4 0 2 2 2 1 1 n/a
Change from last week 3 0 2 2 2 1 1

The good news: Feuk registered his first points of the season! The bad news: he did so in HockeyEttan, Sweden’s third level of hockey. Typically, prospects with serious NHL hopes and dreams don’t come out of HockeyEttan.

Ryan Francis – C, Stockton Heat, AHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.00
Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 n/a

Francis is Stockton’s third line centre… for now! Byron Froese didn’t play over the weekend and presumably when he’s active, that would bump Francis down to the fourth line. At that point, maybe it’d be better for his development to head back to the QMJHL’s Saint John Sea Dogs (this year’s Memorial Cup hosts). We’ll see how the Flames manage him.

Emil Heineman – LW, Leksands IF, SHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 11 2 0 2 2 2 2 8.89
Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 -1.97

Heineman continues to play on Leksands’ fourth line. He went without a point this week.

Cole Huckins – LW, Acadie-Bathurst Titan, QMJHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 7 3 5 8 6 6 4 26.61
Change from last week 2 3 2 5 4 4 3 +12.64

Huckins had a strong week offensively with a pair of multi-point games.

Cole Jordan – D, Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.00
Change from last week n/a

Jordan hasn’t played in a couple weeks. He’s listed on the WHL’s weekly update as being out with an illness.

Rory Kerins – C, Soo Greyhounds, OHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 5 1 3 4 1 2 1 21.19
Change from last week 3 0 2 2 0 1 0 -5.30

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

Up to date 6 2 0 2 2 2 2 9.10
Change from last week 2 2 0 2 2 2 2 +9.10

After weeks without so much as a point, Koumontzis had a two goal game against New Hampshire. He remains on Arizona State’s fourth line.

Yan Kuznetsov – D, Stockton Heat, AHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.00
Change from last week 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 n/a

Like Ryan Francis, Kuznetsov is in a depth role with Stockton – he’s on the third defensive pairing. It’ll be interesting to see how the Flames manage his development this season.

Connor Mackey – D, Stockton Heat, AHL

GP G A P 5v5 P P1 5v5 P1 NHLe
Up to date 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.00
