It’s an exciting time in the hockey world, folks. Even amidst a pandemic, leagues are chugging away and trying to get games in – subject to the necessary health and safety measures, thankfully.
In the prospect realm, a few Calgary Flames properties joined new teams this week.

In case you missed it:

  • Last week’s update
  • Dustin Wolf won a gold medal at the World Juniors!
  • Jakob Pelletier and Connor Zary captured silver medals at the World Juniors!

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

After spending the fall with his USHL team, and getting no points, Boltmann began his collegiate career this weekend with Notre Dame. He also got no points, but he also didn’t get lit up defensively, so that’s a nice first step. He’s starting on Notre Dame’s second defensive pairing.

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

J20 up to date8281066319.78
Change from last weekn/a
With Sweden’s junior league, the J20 Nationell, done for the year, AIK finally had some clarity about Feuk’s status going forward. At Feuk’s request, the club loaned him to Kalix HC of the Swedish third league, HockeyEttan. Feuk was barely getting any playing time when he dressed for AIK, so the request makes a lot of sense.

Ryan Francis- C, Cape Breton Eagles, QMJHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date15615211015832.60
Change from last weekn/a
The QMJHL is paused until Jan. 22 due to COVID concerns.

Johannes Kinnvall- D, HV71, SHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date236121868338.23
Change from last week2000000-3.66
Kinnvall played twice for HV71 and failed to register on the scoresheet. He’s still one of the top offensive blueliners in the SHL, albeit a tad reliant on the power play for his scoring.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date1235867618.20
Change from last weekn/a
Koumontzis is away from his team this week for undisclosed reasons. He’s expected to return before the end of the month.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date201111116.11
Change from last weekn/a
Kuznetsov went back to school, but UConn’s games were canceled due to a COVID-19 positive on the Huskies. He finished fourth at the World Juniors for Russia and received no medal.

Mitchell Mattson- C, Michigan State University Spartans, NCAA

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date122244449.10
Change from last week2000000-1.82
A fourth line centre with the Spartans, Mattson went pointless this week.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
VHL up to date306511510511.76
Change from last week3000000-1.30
MHL up to date16681413131018.66
Change from last weekn/a
Nikolayev remains a middle six forward for Buran, getting good amounts of ice time. His offensive contributions remain sporadic, though.

Josh Nodler- C, Michigan State University Spartans, NCAA

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date1217877618.20
Change from last week2112211+1.81
It was a wild weekend for the Spartans against their old rivals at Michigan. They were lit up 9-0 in a loss, then came back the next game and won in dramatic fashion. Nodler had the game-winning goal to match his point output from his freshman year.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date931013611633.64
Change from last weekn/a
Pelletier is headed back to Quebec to quarantine and prepare for the return of the QMJHL (in a bubble) on Jan. 22.

Jeremie Poirier- D, Saint John Sea Dogs, QMJHL

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date15511161112824.84
Change from last weekn/a
The QMJHL is paused until Jan. 22 due to COVID concerns.

Martin Pospisil- RW, HC Kosice, Tipsport Liga

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date2298179138n/a
Change from last week3033221n/a
Pospisil finished his final week with HC Kosice with a point-per-game week, all of them assists. He departs from the league second in penalty minutes in the entire league with 102. As Brad Treliving quipped to Sportsnet’s Eric Francis a few weeks back: he could find trouble in church.
Pospisil’s been re-assigned to Stockton and will arrive there next week.

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

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
KHL up to date3210153312.33
Change from last week3101111+0.99
Belarus up to date1101111n/a
Change from last weekn/a
Solovyov has been playing 15-18 minutes per night on Dynamo Minsk’s third pairing. He finally scored his first KHL goal last week.

Filip Sveningsson- LW, MODO Hockey, Allsvenskan

GPGAP5v5 PP15v5 P1NHLe
Up to date252577449.12
Change from last week1011111+0.98
Sveningsson had an assist in MODO’s only game this past week, which was a shootout win.

Connor Zary- C, Kamloops Blazers, WHL / Team Canada, WJC

Zary is remaining with the Flames’ AHL group through Jan. 20, at which point he’ll likely head with the group to Stockton. The WHL’s start date is a moving target at this point.

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

GPTOISV%
MHL up to date148080.932

VHL up to date157550.912
Change from last week160-0.003
Chechelev allowed three goals, two of them at even strength, in a 3-0 loss this week. His pro numbers are coming down to Earth a bit, but that may be a product of him playing infrequently lately.

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

Wolf is remaining with the Flames’ AHL group through Jan. 20, at which point he’ll likely head with the group to Stockton. The WHL’s start date is a moving target at this point.
