  • Jett Woo had a primary assist on the power-play to give him 16 points in 30 games. He has 2 goals and 4 assists in his last 10 games.
  • Ethan Keppen scored twice this week giving him a goal in three consecutive games.
  • Arturs Silovs was pulled for the second time in consecutive weeks. He allowed 4 goals on 20 shots and then played the next night allowing 7 goals on 40 shots.


  • Aidan McDonough had a monster 4-point performance this week. 11 of his 15 points have come from the man-advantage.

  • Tyler Madden heads into the winter break with an NCAA leading 13 goals.
  • The rest of Vancouver’s collegiate prospects are already on their breaks.
  • Will Lockwood and Michigan will be taking part in the Great Lakes Invitational on December 30 and 31st.


  • Nothing new happening in Russia, although something I missed last week was Nikita Tryamkin riding a 3 game point streak with 3 assists.

  • Karel Plasek was re-called to the Extraliga and suited up for 1 game, but didn’t make his way onto the scoresheet.


  • Petrus Palmu did not suit up for any of JYP’s games this week. I don’t see any injury reports online so I’m not quite sure why that is the case.
  • Toni Utunen went pointless in 2 games.


  • Kole Lind started the week with a 3 point effort against Bridgeport and followed it up with another 2 points against Toronto.  He was then held scoreless in Utica’s next 2 games.

  • Brogan Rafferty had a 6(!) point week including a 1 goal, 2 assist effort against Bridgeport. He looks extremely dangerous and poised with the puck right now. His 22 points in 28 games is second in the entire AHL for defencemen.

  • Lukas Jasek had an offensive outburst with 3 goals and 2 assists this week.
