Bruins Prospects Roundup Week 1

Hockey's Future

With many of the Bruins non-AHL prospects back in action, it's time to check in on the future of the team.

The week of October 7 - 13

NCAA

Matt Benning (Northeastern University)

Northeastern swept a series against new members of the WCHA, University of Alabama-Hunsville, with 9-1 and 3-2 victories. Benning was named the second star of the game as he scored a power play goal and added a couple of assists, including one shorthanded in his debut. I attended both games so I was able to get a first-hand look at him. I thought he looked really comfortable jumping up into the play offensively, but he's got a bit of work to do in his own end.

Ryan Fitzgerald (Boston College)

BC dropped its season opener in Ann Arbor 3-1 against Michigan but returned to Conte and soundly defeated a highly regarded RPI team 7-2. The Eagles were outshot in both games this weekend, something you don't really see often. Fitzgerald tallied his first collegiate goal in the second game and you can expect a lot more of that if he stays on BC's second line.

Zane Gothberg (University of North Dakota)

North Dakota opened the season with 5-3 win over Vermont thanks in part to Gothberg who did not start but was perfect in relief and earned third star of the game. Gothberg earned the start the next night and NoDak ended up with a 2-2 tie against Vermont.

Matt Grzelcyk (Boston University)

BU opened its season with a 3-1 victory over conference rival UMass to take an early lead in the Hockey East standings. The following night, Holy Cross visited Agganis and was defeated by the Terriers 3-2. Grzelcyk didn't show up on the stat sheet, but he did contribute six shots on goal and was not on the ice for any of the goals BU allowed this weekend.

Colton Hargrove (Western Michigan University)

Things didn't go WMU's way this weekend. The Broncos were blanked 4-0 and then 3-0 by Notre Dame. Hargrove was inactive for the first game, but was in the lineup for game number two on the third line.

Ben Sexton (Clarkson University)

Clarkson took part in the Icebreaker tournament along with UNH, Minnesota and Mercyhurst. In the opening round, the Golden Knights were bested by New Hampshire 4-1 despite seven shots from Sexton - a fairly impressive number for someone who went to the box four times. That was merely a warmup, however. Sexton was the first star in a 5-2 win over Mercyhurst in which he scored a goal and two assists and received a game misconduct for checking from behind in the third period.

CHL

Mitch Dempsey (Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds)

The Greyhounds went 2-0 this week with a 3-2 win over Plymouth and a 5-0 win over Windsor. They're currently first in the OHL's West Division and second in the Western Conference. Dempsey was not a factor, however, as he has not played since September 27.
