Boston Bruins: State Of The Prospects, Oct. 16-23

New, comments

So we've all been keeping a pretty close eye on the Providence Bruins, but how about our prospects elsewhere? Turns out, it's been a pretty big week for the Bruins' youngsters north of the border.

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

All but one of the Bruins' OHL prospects were named to the Subway Super Series OHL team. Meanwhile, in the NCAA, the smart kids have yet to start their season. Let's take a look at how everyone did this week.

OHL:

Anthony Camara - Camara, currently playing for the Barrie Colts, is ranked third overall in points in the OHL, behind only Zach Hall and Mark Schiefele. This week, he had two goals and four assists in three games, and was one of the players named to the Subway Series team today.

Seth Griffith - Another player named to the Subway Series team, London's Seth Griffith has two assists this week, bringing his season totals to 9-8=17 through 11 games. His pointless game on Saturday snapped a six-game scoring streak.

Dougie Hamilton - Last year's first-round pick for the Bruins was also named to the Subway Series team. This week, in two games vs. Brampton and Kingston, he had a goal and two assists, bringing his season total to 4-10=14. Notably, he's also sitting on a +13 rating through 14 games, as well.

Cody Payne - The third-year OHLer did not make the Subway Series team, but he's no schill - Payne is sitting on 13 points in 11 games for the Plymouth Whalers. This week alone he was good for three goals and three assists in three games. He currently leads the Whalers in scoring.

Malcolm Subban - PK's little brother has a 6-3-1 record for Belleville so far this year, with a 2.26 GAA and 0.931 save percentage. He'll pair up with Blues prospect Jordan Binnington at the Subway Super Series. Subban split the pair of games he played this weekend, allowing three goals in each game -a win against the Soo Greyhounds and a loss against the Sudbury Wolves.

NCAA

Brian Ferlin, Mark Goggin, and Rob O'Gara have not started their seasons for Cornell, Dartmouth, and Yale yet. Welcome to the Ivy League. Ferlin is being highly touted as a Sophomore, though, and Rob O'Gara is set to help the Bulldogs out tremendously as a Freshman.

Zane Gothberg - After getting in trouble for partying earlier this month, Zane Gothberg has not started a game yet for University of North Dakota, backing up junior Clarke Saunders, who went 1-1-0 last weekend. Look for him to get a start this weekend.

Matt Grzelcyk - In two games so far for Boston University, freshman Matt Grzelcyk had one assist in BU's win over Providence last week. BU fell to UNH 4-1 as well.

Colton Hargrove - Hargrove has been held scoreless through three games for WMU in his first season of CCHA hockey.

EUROPE

Maxim Chudinov - Last year's KHL All-Star Defenseman switched teams, and is now playing for SKA St. Petersburg - the same team as Ilya Kovalchuk and Vladimir Tarasenko, currently. He has four assists through 17 games for SKA.

Alex Khokhlachev - "Koko" is still stuck at just two points (1G 1A) through 19 games for Moscow Spartak. There were rumors about him returning to Windsor at some point this season, but so far those rumors have not come to fruition.

Lars Volden - After starting the season in the Finnish B league, Lars Volden has been backing up for the Espoo BLues of the SM-liiga, but has not appeared in a game yet.

USHL

Matt Benning - Benning, a 2012 draft pick currently playing for the USHL's Dubuque Fighting Saints, has four points (2G 2A) through six games.

ECHL

Tommy Cross has done fairly well for South Carolina so far, with three assists in three games. Adam Morrison has a 1-2-0 record through three games, allowing 13 goals in three games for a 4.33 GAA. Meanwhile, in the only game he started, Shawn Hunwick allowed only one goal.
