Last night Kent Simpson stopped 32 of 33 for a 2-1 win. Continues to stay hot and it is really nice to see. He was absolutely brutal for the 10-15 games and it was really annoying because Mrazek and the other guy Pierce were badly outplaying him and I was afraid he would continue to not even get a 50/50 split with Pierce. But now Pierce is gone and he is sharing time with Spratt who has yet to get a start...but Simpson hasn't given him a chance because of how well he has played.

A couple weeks ago Simpson had like a .887 SV%, but now his statline:
13-9-3, 2.45 GAA, .905 SV%

Nothing special, but you have to consider where it was before. I hope he continue to build on this hot streak and maybe something has clicked for him. If Simpson or Carruth can both improve then maybe we have a couple good goalie prospects. Remember, Crawford and Niemi didn't really get it all together until they were 25/26 years old. Simpson and Carruth are just 20 and 21 years old respectively so they can hopefully keep getting better in the ECHL/AHL. It would be nice to have a couple good goalie prospects on Rockford to help them win some games and maybe even get into the playoffs(well, that might be too much wishful thinking).
