February 6-12 CBJ Prospect Week in Review

Fresh from the CBJ tweetup its time for the prospect week in review. Starting off in Springfield the Falcons had a three in three with two being at The Nest. Starting off on Friday it was the Connecticut Whale coming to town to play game number nine against the Falcons ending in a 3-2 overtime loss. Cam Atkinson led the way scoring his 25th and 26th goals of the season. The Whale got two goals from Wojtek Wolski including the game winner that veteran Manny Legace earned a assist on the...wait a minute. The next night it was off to Bridgeport to play the Sound Tigers and it was a ugly one. The 8-1 loss was the Falcons worst of the season with Alexandre Giroux scoring his 16th of the season in the loss. Manny Legace took the brunt of the thrashing stopping 22 of 28 through two periods before turning things over to @PaullyD31 Paul Dainton who fared a little better stopping nine of eleven in the third period. On Sunday It was back home and the Falcons finally got back in the win column. Five Falcons scored win the 5-1 win over Manchester. Paul Dainton was in net for the win stopping 24 of 25 missing the shutout by 1:08. On the weekend it was Alexandre Giroux leading the way with two goals and three assists all three assists were on Cam Atkinson's three goals who also had a assist. Atkinson could break the Falcons record for goals by a rookie of 36 set by Danny Briere in 97-98. The only other Falcons with multiple points were Martin St. Pierre with three assists and Wade Macleod who is only signed by Springfield. Quickly the Express went 0-2-1 last week with no Blue Jackets prospects playing. I think Steven Delisle is still with the Express...somehow I lost track of a 6'6" French Canadian guy. :( Ah twitter you gotta love it after asking the Express I found out that Delisle was placed on the 21 day IR last Monday.

Onto the CHL and college Boone Jenner continued to miss time with a injury, finally I got a update a local paper says he took a high hit in a game against Brampton late last month and hasnt been in the lineup since. Dalton Smith missed last week's three games with a hip "problem" the papers words not mine. Quickly both Martin Ouelette and Anton Forsberg didnt play last week. Maine's coach must have no faith in Martin because even though the Bears loss on Friday Tim Whitehead went right back to Dan Sullivan in Saturday's win over Providence. Anton Forsberg and MODO for some reason had 10 days off between games staring back up tonight.

Brandon Archibald-Saginaw Spirit(OHL)
Season Stats 53GP 1-12-13 -3 54PIM
The Spirit for a three in three and never left the state of Michigan two being in Saginaw while the other was in Plymouth. In the three games Brandon went pointless and was even while going 1-1-1.

Lukas Sedlak-Chicoutimi Sagueneens(QMJHL)
Season Stats 42GP 16-25-41 +19 53PIM
The Sags went 1-2 last week and with both losses it was because they ran into hot goaltenders. Halifax's 16 year old Zachary Fucale was named 1st star last week and both of Shawinigan's goalies are first and third in the Q in GAA(2nd Mathieu Corbeil). Sedlak was held off the scoresheet all weekend snapping a five game point streak. Sedlak won 45 of 72 faceoffs on the weekend winning 63 percent.

Petr Straka-Rimouski Oceanic(QMJHL)
Season Stats 42GP 14-15-29 -8 29PIM
Straka and the Oceanic went 2-0 last week with a win in regualtion and in a shootout. Petr scored his 14th of the season when he had the game winner (42 seconds in) in a win over Quebec. Straka was then held scoreless in a shootout win over Blainville also missing in a shootout.

Mathieu Corbeil-Saint John Sea Dogs(QMJHL)
Season Stats 39GP 29-10 .911Sv% 2.36GAA 6SO
First some bad news due to Saint John using a player that hadnt signed his player card(?) before playing in a game they lost a win from January, so Mathieu only has 29 wins and is tied of the Sea Dogs franchise all time wins record. The Sea Dogs added to its nine game winning streak going 2-0 last week with Mathieu picking up his 29th win of the season and adding to his franchise record 6th shutout making 22 saves in a win over rival PEI. Corbeil was named 2nd star despite not being tested much. Corbeil was given the night off against Acadie-Bathurst on Sunday.

Michael Chaput-Shawinigan Cataractes(QMJHL)
Season Stats 44GP 14-33-47 +27 39PIM
Michael and the Cats went 2-0-1 last week with Michael going scoreless until the team's win over Chicoutimi and fellow CBJ prospect Lukas Sedlak. In the win Michael picked up his team leading 33rd assist of the season. Michael is one assist away from his total from last year in 18 less games. Chaput won 61% of his draws last week winning 37 of 61.

Austin Madaisky-Kamloops Blazers(WHL)
Season Stats 56GP 11-31-42 +22 62PIM
Austin and the Blazers went 3-0 last week and became the first WHL team to win 40 games this season.(WHL only plays 72) Austin added two assists to his already career high in the wins and was a +6 on the weekend. I missed this last month but his assist in a win over Kelowna was the 100th point of his WHL career.

Oliver Gabriel-Portland Winterhawks(WHL)
Season Stats 22GP 10-12-22 +10 26PIM
Oliver Gabriel continued his strong play of late with points in all three Winterhawks wins. Gabriel had 6 points and was named a star twice starting off with 2 assists and being named third star on Monday then on Saturday he had his second three point game of the season with a goal and two assists in a win over Seattle and was named second star. Gabriel's boring game was the win over Tri-City when he only had a assist.

Onto the college prospects starting off with the prospects that didnt score last week. Will Weber only played in one of Miami's wins last week missing Friday's game because of his fight in last week's loss to Michigan. Seth Ambroz and Jake Hansen both went scoreless in the Gopher's losses to Denver with Ambroz being a -3 with 0 penalty minutes while Hansen had a 6 penalty minutes and was a -1. Drew Olson was scoreless and even in the Dog's split with North Dakota. A rare appearance in this place for TJ Tynan who was scoreless over a whole weekend for the first time since November 4-5.

Thomas Larkin-Colgate(ECAC)
Season Stats 28GP 4-9-13 +15 36PIM
In the Raiders 2 wins last week over Yale and Brown(I love the Ivy League makes me want to talk like Mr. Howell from Gilligan's Island. 48 year old TV reference check) In the win over Yale Thomas had a assist on John Lidgett's second goal(5:40 in) of the night and the game winner and was a +2 in the win. The next night the Brown Bears(no joke) came to town and Thomas and was help scoreless.

Sean Collins-Cornell(ECAC)
Season Stats 25 11-9-20 +2 4PIM
The Big Red played the same teams as Colgate also sweeping the Bears and the Bulldogs but they got to keep some hardware as Cornell claimed its first Ivy League title since 2004-05. Like Thomas Sean was scoreless against the Bears but then he had his first career three point game. Sean scored two first period goals also adding a assist in the win.

Trent Vogelhuber-Miami(CCHA)
Season Stats 3-9-12 E 43PIM
Trent had points in back to back games for the first time this season picking up a assist in both wins over the Alabama-Huntsville Chargers. Vogelhuber assisted on Byron Paulazzo two goals last week.

Kevin Lynch-Michigan(CCHA)
Season Stats 30GP 6-5-11 +1 26PIM
Kevin Lynch had goals in both games this week in the Wolverine's split with Michigan St. On Friday night in East Lansing Lynch gave Michigan a 2-0 lead(1:09) when he battled through four Spartans but failed to hang on losing 3-2. Next night it was off to Joe Louis Arena where the game to overtime and Lynch played the hero. When a Michigan State defender tried to intercept a pass like a shortstop(bad example I know) but the puck got through him and there was Lynch to punch it home and give Michigan the win. Lynch has feasted on the Spartans this season in five games this year he has four goals and two assists. Here are Lynch's postgame comments after the win.

Mike Reilly-Penticton(BCHL)
Season Stats 41GP 19-47-66
After only playing one game last week the Vees were back at it this week with 3 games and what has been standard since Novmeber 5th the Vees went 3-0. The Vees had won 29 straight going into this week with there next win setting a new BCHL record. The Vees started off the week in Chilliwack with a chance to make history. In the Vee's 30th straight win a 7-0 win over Chilliwack Mike had 2 assists. You'd think when averaging six goals a game the Vees have to had scored 10 goals at least once well youd be wrong. The Vees had scored six or more 25 times but never 10 until Friday. Against the Silverbacks the Vees scored 10 goals with Mike again having two assists for his 21st multi point game of the season. Then on Saturday in a 7-5 win against Westside Mike went scoreless ho hum....WAIT WHAT HELD SCORELESS!!!!!! All right I joke now I but Mike even though he missed four games with a injury he hadnt gone a game without a point since December 2nd picking up seven goals 27 assists for 34 points in 17 games.

There you have it folks as for next week the highlight is TJ Tynan and Notre Dame travel to Oxford for a series with Miami. Ill be back next week
