The prospects:

Maroon looks like he might be able to challenge for a roster spot.

Lindholm is our best defenseman in Norfolk. He has suffered two concussions, thankfully both appear to have been minor. He looks like he'll be in Anaheim shortly. A case can be made for him as our top prospect.

Vatanen is pretty talented, but he has a bit of work to do down in Norfolk before he comes up.

Holland has emerged as our best forward down in Norfolk, even over Devo and Palmeri.

Etem is pretty talented, but barring him blowing it away in camp, we probably won't see him in a Ducks sweater this year.

Wagner has had a pretty good rookie season. He looks like he's going to be very good, but that's probably a season or two away.

Andersen and Bobkov are both pretty raw. Neither looks like they'll be ready for at least a season or two.

Rakell and Karlsson won silver. Karlsson was Sweden's MVP in that game. Both had their ups and downs but are looking good.

Welinski is one of the top freshmen defensemen in Division I.

Kerdiles was suspended for ten games for an amateurism violation, and likely missed out on playing for the US because of that. He has looked incredibly dangerous in his brief stint with Wisconsin.

Clark continues to make slow, but steady progress.

Kevin Roy and Andrew O'Brien both look intriguing.

Cam, Bobby, Sbisa, Beleskey, and Bonino went overseas. Bonino is a generational forward in the world of second-tier Italian ice hockey.
