A big, big, weekend for Maine hockey and Nolan Vesey as they won their first game of the season this weekend, then another one! Vesey scored his first goal of the season as well. Their record is now 2-10! Go Black Bears! In other news Vermont has cancelled its hockey program out of shame.

The below chart sorts out prospects by how may NHL points they'd have right now, using Rob Vollman's translation numbers.

Player League GP Points PPG NHL eq.
Mitch Marner (F) OHL 19 39 2.05 12.48
Dmytro Timashov (F) QMJHL 23 41 1.78 10.66
Andreas Johnson (F) SHL 20 16 0.80 9.60
JJ Piccinich (F) OHL 19 29 1.53 9.28
Martins Dzierkals (F) QMJHL 22 31 1.41 8.06
Travis Dermott (D) OHL 22 21 0.95 6.72
Andrew Nielsen (D) WHL 23 24 1.04 6.48
Tony Cameranesi (F) NCAA-NCHC 11 13 1.18 5.33
Nikita Korostelev (F) OHL 15 14 0.93 4.48
Jeremy Bracco (F) OHL 10 14 1.40 4.48
Stephen Desrocher (D) OHL 24 13 0.54 4.16
Fabrice Herzog (F) NLA 17 10 0.59 4.00
Pierre Engvall (F) ALK 22 10 0.45 4.00
Dominic Toninato (F) NCAA-NCHC 13 6 0.46 2.46
Cody Donaghey (D) QMJHL 13 7 0.54 1.82
Nolan Vesey (F) NCAA-HE 12 1 0.08 0.37
Dakota Joshua NCAA-B10 6 1 0.17 0.36
Jesper Lindgren (D) SHL 19 0 0 0

Our top five as of last week's numbers are Marner, Timashov, Johnson, Piccinich, and Dzierkals. Also, this week Mitch Marner passed the two points per game mark with 2.05, and Andrew Nielsen passed one point per game, with 1.04. Nolan Vesey got his first of the season, moving him up one spot to above Dakota Joshua in NHL points, as Hockey East is held slightly higher than the Big10 conference in NCAA. Poor Jesper Lindgren is still pointless since moving to the SHL from the U20 league.

Good Week:
Mitch Marner, points leader this week with 7 in 4 games.

Nolan Vesey and Travsi Dermott for scoring their first goals of the season

Tony Cameranesi for nabbing 4 points in 2 games vs Colorado College.

Bad Week:
The three European players who skated totaled for 2 points in 7 games this week.

Dmytro Timashov played well on Friday but didn't have a good game on Sunday.

Where have you gone Nikita Korostelev? Not a lot of points lately (he is just under a PPG, so he's not anywhere near bad), hopefully he gets things back on track and catches up with the rest of our forwards in the OHL.
