19 yr old Reinhart in the Isles/Sound Tigers scrimmage, kept his game simple and looked good. I've no complaints with sending him back to juniors though.

22 yr old De Haan went out early in the season with a shoulder injury.

22 yr old Donovan was named to the 2012-2013 AHL all-star team. I have to say, I expected him to get a #6 role with the isles. But, Snow must not feel he's nhl ready since he remains Bridgeport's #1 instead of the isles #6.

Other prospects like Mayfield, Pelech, Pokka just aren't nhl ready yet.
