This may be the last relatively quiet prospect update for awhile. With the American Hockey League slated to kick off around Feb. 5, that means that the Stockton Heat’s camp should be getting going relatively soon.
In the interim, let’s check out how the rest of the farm-hands are looking!

In case you missed it:

  • Last week’s update
  • Tyler Parsons continues his recovery from ankle surgery back in December.
  • The following prospects have been assigned to Stockton’s camp, expected to begin this week:
    • Goalies: Dustin Wolf & Artyom Zagidulin
    • Defensemen: Carl-Johan Lerby, Colton Poolman & Alexander Yelesin
    • Forwards: Glenn Gawdin, Justin Kirkland, Emilio Pettersen, Matthew Phillips, Luke Philp, Martin Pospisil, Adam Ruzicka, Eetu Tuulola, Connor Zary & Dmitry Zavgorodniy

We’ll say this for Boltmann: he’s consistent. He’s registered a minor penalty in three of his four college games. He hasn’t gotten lit up yet, but he also hasn’t done a ton thus far. He’s playing on Notre Dame’s second pairing.

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

It was a quiet week in the schedule for Kalix HC, with just one game. Feuk is settling into their top six mix right now.

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

Big news, folks, as Francis was traded to the Saint John Sea Dogs (where he’ll be teammates with Jeremie Poirier)! The trade was Francis and a 2021 sixth round pick to Saint John in exchange for Dawson Stairs, a 2022 sixth round pick, and first and second round picks in 2023. It’s a big swing for Saint John.
Oh, and due to the pandemic, Saint John’s weekend games were postponed. Their next scheduled game is Jan. 29 in Halifax, but that’s obviously not set in stone.

Johannes Kinnvall- D, HV71, SHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe

Change from last week2022121+0.87
Kinnvall remains one of the most potent offensive defenders in Sweden. He had a two point game and was quiet in the other one.
He’s 10th in the SHL in points by defensemen, but if you factor in the time he missed with his early season injury and look at points-per-game, he’s basically third behind Joel Persson and Erik Gustafsson. (There are two Erik Gustafssons in high-level hockey and they’re both offensive-minded blueliners.)

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date1436967617.55
Change from last week2011000-0.65
Koumontzis returned from a two week absence and played a big role for ASU, playing in their top six. Unfortunately, the Sun Devils lost both games to Wisconsin.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date402222216.11
Change from last week2011111n/a
Kuznetsov returned to action after the World Juniors, a feat delayed by COVID-19 positives at UConn. He maintained his scoring pace from before the break and the Huskies won both games.

Mitchell Mattson- C, Michigan State University Spartans, NCAA

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date142244447.80
Change from last week2000000-1.30
Mattson continues to be quiet offensively, playing on MSU’s fourth line. They lost both games to Penn State.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
VHL up to date316511510511.38
Change from last week1000000-0.38
MHL up to date16681413131018.66
Change from last weekn/a
It was a bit of a schedule lull for Buran, which only played once. Nikolayev slid to the third line.

Josh Nodler- C, Michigan State University Spartans, NCAA

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date1427988717.55
Change from last week2101111-0.65
Nodler has exceeded his freshman year offensive output with a lot of games to spare. He had a goal, but MSU lost both games to Penn State.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date931013611633.64
Change from last weekn/a
Pelletier may or may not play this week. He’s currently scheduled to play against Drummondville on Friday but since it’s not part of the Q’s “protected environment” set-up, your guess is as good as ours if the game takes place as scheduled.

Jeremie Poirier- D, Saint John Sea Dogs, QMJHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date15511161112824.84
Change from last weekn/a
Saint John’s weekend games were postponed. Their next scheduled game is Jan. 29 in Halifax.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
KHL up to date3415653311.61
Change from last week2000000-0.72

Change from last weekn/a
Solovyov continues to chug along in the KHL. He’s 20 and hasn’t scored a ton, but he’s playing quite a bit – especially relative to players his age in the KHL. He’s tied for fifth in games played by blueliners under the age of 21.

Filip Sveningsson- LW, MODO Hockey, Allsvenskan

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date292688558.98
Change from last week3011111-0.14
It was a busy week. Sveningsson had an assist as MODO went 1-2-0. Sveningsson usually plays top six, but was limited to just 10 minutes in their last game (a 7-6 track meet).

Daniil Chechelev- G, Russkie Vityazi Chekhov, MHL / HC Ryazan, VHL / HC Vityaz Podolsk, KHL

MHL up to date148080.932
Change from last weekn/a
VHL up to date178750.910
Change from last week2120-0.002
Chechelev made two starts for Ryazan: a 3-2 win and a 1-0 loss. He allowed three goals over the two games.
