Blackfish: CanucksArmy Prospect Report – October 19, 2017

It’s time for everyone’s favourite prospect update, Blackfish: Canucks Army Prospect Report.

Elias Pettersson has continued to look good, the Canucks locked up Jonah Gadjovich and both goalie prospects have been great to start the year. It’s only one week that has passed but there is plenty to breakdown.

Just a note – xNHL has been added to the charts below to show what their production would look like at the NHL level.

CANADIAN HOCKEY LEAGUE

Western Hockey League

Name Pos Age League Team GP G A P P/GP xNHL +/- PIM SOG Sh% SOG/GP
Kole Lind RW 19-003 WHL Kelowna 10 7 11 18 1.80 37.7 9 16 40 17.5% 4.00
Jakob Stukel RW 20-227 WHL Calgary 10 6 2 8 0.80 16.7 5 4 23 26.0% 2.30
  • Kole Lind was limited to four points in four games this past week. The younger has been so hot this season that even a PPG pace is considered ‘limited’. He has his 8 game point streak snapped on Oct 15, but registered an assist against Tri-City on the 17th. His 4.0 shots per game are very encouraging.
  • 2016 6th round pick Jakob Stukel has 2 goals in 2 games this past week – he also had 6 SOG in those two games combined.
