It’s mid March! Some leagues are winding down or have completed their seasons. The OHL still has not started to play. That’s hockey in 2020-21!

Change from last week3022020-9.06
The interesting thing about Ruzicka is that the vast majority of his points have been primary points – 12 of 14. He’s driving a lot of Stockton’s offense.

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

Up to date497714121199.30
Change from last week3000000-0.61
The season has come to an end for MODO and Sveningsson. With just 14 points in his Draft+4 season, it seems incredibly unlikely that the Flames will effort to sign him. (It’s possible, but they would need to be absolutely in love with his two-way play.)

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

Connor Zary- LW, Stockton Heat, AHL / Kamloops Blazers, WHL / Team Canada, WJC

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
AHL up to date934775531.00
Change from last week1000000-3.87
Zary was sent back to junior. All things considered, seven points in nine games for a 19-year-old is a very nice start to a pro career.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
AHL up to date110000000.00

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

GPTOISV%
AHL up to date31480.895
Change from last week
Wolf is in Everett preparing for the season. He was name-dropped by the team in their leadership announcement, despite being a goalie.
And even though by position he’s not allowed to officially wear a letter, Dustin Wolf in his fourth year has elevated to a role as a clear leader and strong influence among our group.

Artyom Zagidulin- G, Stockton Heat, AHL / Metallurg Magnitigorsk, KHL

GPTOISV%
AHL up to date3180.908
Change from last week2119+.036
