The Calgary Flames’ top affiliate, the Stockton Heat, is finally back playing. On top of that, the European teams are finishing off their regular seasons and seemingly every prospect is playing many games.
Let’s check in on all the Flames’ prospects with our weekly update.

In case you missed it:

  • Last week’s update
  • Glenn Gawdin and Artyom Zagidulin are currently with the Flames
  • Rory Kerins is with Stockton but has yet to dress

Jake Boltmann- D, Lincoln Stars, USHL / University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish, NCAA

USHL up to date60000000.00
Change from last weekn/a
NCAA up to date140000000.00
Change from last week2000000n/a
So, uh, Boltmann still has no points. But he’s playing a regular shift on the third pairing in the NCAA in his draft-plus-1 season, so that’s not awful. But mix in a secondary assist here and there, Jake.

Lucas Feuk- LW, AIK, Allsvenskan/J20 Nationell / Kalix HC, HockeyEttan

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Allsvenskan up to date141011112.33
Change from last weekn/a
HockeyEttan up to date1512618131713n/a
Change from last week3303333n/a
J20 up to date8281066319.78
Change from last weekn/a
Feuk is down in the third division, but he’s doing great and he’s established himself as one of his club’s most reliable offensive players. HockeyEttan’s standings format is a bit confusing, but Kalix should be qualifying for the post-season.

Ryan Francis- C, Cape Breton Eagles/Saint John Sea Dogs, QMJHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date15615211015832.60
Change from last weekn/a
New Brunswick remains a national COVID-19 hot-spot and the next scheduled Sea Dogs game is Mar. 3, though that may be revised if the situation improves. Francis hasn’t played a game since Nov. 18 and he has yet to debut for Saint John.

Johannes Kinnvall- D, HV71, SHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date2971522812537.08
Change from last weekn/a
Kinnvall is injured. HV71 is currently near the bottom of the SHL standings and is in danger of sliding back into the relegation playoffs.

Justin Kirkland- LW, Stockton Heat, AHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date20000000.00
Change from last week2000000n/a
Kirkland was minus-four this week.

Demetrios Koumontzis- LW, Arizona State University Sun Devils, NCAA

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date18461068615.17
Change from last weekn/a
The Sun Devils were off this week.

Yan Kuznetsov- D, University of Connecticut Huskies, NCAA / Team Russia, WJC

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date1214553313.43
Change from last week1000000-1.22
Kuznetsov had one game this week, as UConn’s other game was cancelled. He remains a reliable first pairing defender for a .500-ish NCAA team.

Carl-Johan Lerby- D, Stockton Heat, AHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date201100019.93
Change from last week2011000+19.93
Lerby played his first two North American games this week. He was minus one, but in two games where his team was out-scored 12-2. Small victories. He also earned a secondary assist on one of Stockton’s two goals.

Connor Mackey- D, Stockton Heat, AHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date20000000.00
Change from last week2000000n/a
Mackey has one assist (and a plus-one rating) in three NHL games, and a minus-three rating in two AHL games. His first pro season is a work in progress.

Mitchell Mattson- C, Michigan State University Spartans, NCAA

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date182244446.07
Change from last weekn/a
Mattson was scratched for the second week in a row. He was a healthy scratch for much of his first two NCAA seasons.

Ilya Nikolayev- C, Buran Voronezh, VHL / Loko Yaroslavl, MHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
VHL up to date377613512511.27
Change from last weekn/a
MHL up to date218101817171418.27
Change from last week1000000-0.92
Nikolayev played just over four minutes in his lone game, then missed his next game entirely. We’re presuming he’s dealing with an injury. (Loko’s the top team in the MHL, so they’re playoff bound.)

Josh Nodler- C, Michigan State University Spartans, NCAA

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date22291199813.65
Change from last week2011111n/a
Nodler had a goal this week, but had a previous goal downgraded to an assist. He’s one of the most reliable two-way players for MSU.

Jakob Pelletier- LW, Val-d’Or Foreurs, QMJHL / Team Canada, WJC

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date166182416171234.93
Change from last week1123322+2.33
Pelletier had a three point game in Val-d’Or’s only game before their latest bubble ended. They return to bubble play next week riding a seven game winning streak.

Emilio Pettersen- LW, Stockton Heat, AHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date20000000.00
Change from last week2000000n/a
Pettersen had some nice energy in his first two pro games.

Matthew Phillips- C/RW, Stockton Heat, AHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date20000000.00
Change from last week2000000n/a
Phillips had all kinds of good looks for the Heat in his two games. No points, but he was a catalyst.

Luke Philp- C/RW, Stockton Heat, AHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date210101019.93
Change from last week2101010+19.93
Philp scored a goal on the power play, one of two Stockton managed to get.

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date15511161112824.84
Change from last weekn/a
New Brunswick remains a national COVID-19 hot-spot and the next scheduled Sea Dogs game is Mar. 3, though that may be revised if the situation improves. Like Francis, Poirier hasn’t played since Nov. 18.

Colton Poolman- D, Stockton Heat, AHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date20000000.00
Change from last week2000000n/a

Ilya Solovyov- D, Dynamo Minsk, KHL / Dinamo Molodechno, Belarus

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
KHL up to date3917855313.49

Belarus up to date1101111n/a
Change from last weekn/a
Minsk qualified for the KHL playoffs and Solovyov had an assist.

Filip Sveningsson- LW, MODO Hockey, Allsvenskan

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date4047119868.95
Change from last week2112222+1.24
Sveningsson had a point-per-game week. Unless standings change drastically, MODO will miss the relegation playoffs and the “regular” playoffs and simply end their season in mid-March.

Eetu Tuulola- RW, Stockton Heat, AHL / Vasterviks IK, HockeyAllsvenskan / SaiPa, SM-Liiga

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
AHL up to date20000000.00

Up to date20000000.00
Change from last week2000000n/a

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date20000000.00
Change from last week2000000n/a
Zary was a bit uneven over two games with Stockton (as a 19-year-old). He was minus-two, but was reportedly way less jumpy in the second game.

Dmitry Zavgorodniy- RW, Stockton Heat, AHL / SKA St. Petersburg, KHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
AHL up to date20000000.00

MHL up to date1911070.924
Change from last week
VHL up to date2111160.912
Change from last week
Chechelev didn’t dress this week, as Chekhov has multiple goalies with them right now and appears to be rotating them through. They’re currently just outside of the playoff picture.

Dustin Wolf- G, Stockton Heat, AHL / Team USA, WJC

GPTOISV%
Up to date1280.545
Change from last week128+0.545
Wolf played one pro game, his first, and got lit up. He was the victim of a lot of turnovers and bounces, though.
