Among other things, Colliton talked about the success of Arturs Silovs this season at both the AHL and NHL level, and the progression he’s seen from the young Latvian netminder.
“Yeah I think he’s had an excellent year of development,” said Colliton. “For me, just the feeling when he was in net at the start of the year — you know, we liked him, he’s a big prospect — but he’s become more stable in there and giving the confidence to the team when he’s in net, making the saves you gotta make. Every once in a while he steals one for you, and that’s huge. That’s what you want to see at our level, just that growth.
“He was basically the only guy here for a while… we really leaned on Arty, like, he played a ton of games when he in the past couple years hasn’t played that many. That was a big challenge for him, and I thought that was huge for his development.”
Silovs was red-hot prior to his call up to the NHL, and put together a 3-2 record with the Vancouver Canucks. For a sixth round pick who’s just 21 years old, Silovs is long ahead of his development path.
Colliton also talked about Danila Klimovich’s up and down development, the upcoming AHL playoffs, and more!
