Toronto Maple Leafs prospect report: A quiet week all around

New, comment

It’s not a highlight filled crop of North American prospects this season.

The Ryan’s are still out of action - McGregor in Sarnia and O’Connell in Penticton - and everyone else playedlike themselves.

The biggest standout was Prince Albert Raiders goalie Ian Scott having a great weekend as the Raiders went on the road through Alberta. A couple great games and one loss, but it’s hard to win three in three days.

Ontario Hockey League

#77 - Eemeli Räsänen (D) - 0G, 1A
Kingston Frontenacs - 22-16-4-3

Jan. 18th: @ Peterborough Petes
W 5-1 - 0G, 1A, +1
Jan. 19th: vs Hamilton Bulldogs
L 3-2 OT - No Points
Jan. 21st: @ Mississauga Steelheads
L 6-2 - 0G, 0A, -1

The high flying Frontenacs were grounded with their trip to the golden horseshoe. Räsänen is still chipping in, but his offensive game has taken a back seat with the recent additions.

#55 - Keaton Middleton (D) - 0G, 1A, -4
Saginaw Spirit - 23-17-4-0

Jan. 18th: @ Barrie Colts
L 6-2 - 0G, 1A, -3
Jan. 19th: @ Sudbury Wolves
W 4-2 - 0G, 0A, -1
Jan. 21st: @ North Bay Battalion
L 4-3 OT - No Points

Not a great week for Middleton or the Spirit on their Highway 400 road trip.

#15 - Fedor Gordeev (D) - 1G, 1A
Flint Firebirds - 13-27-3-1

Jan. 17th: vs Sarnia Sting
L 6-3 - 0G, 0A, -2
Jan. 20th: vs Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds
W 4-2 - 1G, 1A, +3

Jan. 21st: @ Windsor Spitfires
L 1-0 - 0G, 0A, -1

The week opened with a big loss to the Sting and a close one to the Spitfires, but in the surprising win over the dominant Greyhounds Gordeev had a goal and an assist!

#19 - Ryan McGregor (F) - Injured
Sarnia Sting - 32-12-2-0

Jan. 17th: @ Flint Firebirds
W 6-3 - Did Not Play
Jan. 19th: vs Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds
W 5-3 - Did Not Play
Jan. 21st: @ Oshawa Generals
W 6-5 - Did Not Play

McGregor is still out week-to-week with an injury.

#52 - Nicolas Mattinen (D) - 0G, 0A, +4
Hamilton Bulldogs - 29-10-3-3

Jan. 17th: @ Owen Sound Attack
L 2-1 - 0G, 0A, +1
Jan. 19th: @ Kingston Frontenacs
W 3-2 OT - No Points
Jan. 20th: @ Ottawa 67’s
W 9-3 - 0G, 0A, +3

A great ending to the Bulldogs weekend, tripling the 67’s score. Hamilton still has a nine point lead for first in the Eastern Conference, so the loss to Owen Sound doesn’t hurt much.


Western Hockey League

#33 - Ian Scott (G) - 95sv, 102sh, .931sv%
Prince Albert Raiders - 18-20-7-2

Jan. 17th: vs Regina Pats

Jan. 20th: @ Medicine Hat Tigers
W 3-2 OT - 33sv, 35sh, .943sv%
Jan. 21st: @ Calgary Hitmen
L 4-3 OT - 33sv, 37sh, .892sv%

Scott played three in a row, and held his own on the road trip through Calgary, the only loss coming in overtime. The Raiders are four points out of the playoffs right now.

Penticton Vees, BCHL

O’Connell is injured and may miss the remainder of the regular season.

Jan. 19th: vs New Hampshire
T 2-2 - 0G, 0A, +1
Jan. 20th: vs New Hampshire

The weekend evened out I suppose, with back to back ties against New Hampshire.
