We’re into the meat of just about every league’s season, and it’ll be a couple of weeks before the cream of the prospect crop gets stolen away to various national team camps as they attempt to make various World Junior rosters.
In the meantime, let’s check in on all of the prospects.

This and that:

  • Johannes Kinnvall and Tyler Persons are on the Flames’ season-opening injury reserve after suffering injuries.
  • Daniil Chechelev has been assigned to the ECHL’s Kansas City Mavericks and dressed as a backup on Tuesday, but hasn’t played in a game yet.

Boltmann went quiet offensively this week, though he’s been on quite the tear lately so that was seemingly inevitable. He’s part of a seven defender rotation for Notre Dame and usually plays the equivalent of second or third pairing minutes.

Kuznetsov was a healthy scratch for Saturday’s game against Henderson. Our pals over at The Win Column broke down the decision-making the Flames need to make in terms of whether to return him to the QMJHL or keep him in Stockton. As of now, he’s rotating with Colton Poolman and Ilya Solovyov on the third pairing.

He had a pair of two point games for the Storm and he’s now up to a point per game in one of the top junior leagues in North America.
