Joakin Andersson (only 5 games in 11-12)
Luke Glendening (24 year old...still considered a prospect. Ex-Wolverine so it count even more)
Nordstrom (started the year, not with the Hawks anymore)
Niederraiter (just his real 2nd season, 9 games in 11-12)
Zucker (though he's not active anymore...)
Miller (question of time before he's being recalled...)
Kristo (okay, okay.....that's just for me....but he should be recalled soon too...)
Then....(and please just note the research I made just for you...), we can say 3 'cause Bournival JUST got his job....but it still could ahve been 2 nto that long ago WITH Bournival as a possible callup. But then on top of everything I noted before, there are some prospects in the AHL that are just waiting for injuries to make the jump contrary to us. While everything isn't stats, look at the AHL page for scorers and you'll see quite a few kids in there.
I would say it's a little early to be anointing some of those players listed as having "graduated"..especially those...ahem...Rangers (:-)) and Leafs. The better question might be - What teams have graduated three prospects that are playing on their team's top two lines? Tonight the Habs have three, two which are cemented as top six forwards now - that's impressive.
I don't think Neidereiter should be considered as a wild prospect who graduated either, and if he's included...Eller would come close to qualifying as well as a 2012-13 graduate.
As for Kristo being a graduate of the Rangers system. First of all..he ain't graduated..second of all..he's played a grand total of 8 games for the organization. Thomas right now is as much of a graduate for the Habs as Kristo for the Rangers. ;-)
