Heemskerk will be platooning with the ECHL Thunder's (Oilers prospect) goalie Roy, for now. There may come a time when a clear #1 appears, but both will get a lot of work.

(Heemskerk has the franchise's only win of the season.)

BU (2-2-1, 1-1-1 Hockey East) might derive some self-satisfaction from the fact that it came back from a 2-0 second-period deficit. The Terriers have Matt Nieto to thank for that.

Though it was Sahir Gill who tied the game at 5:16 of the third period, Nieto was the one who got BU back into the game - and not just on the scoreboard.
...
Then, with just over five minutes left in the [second] period, UMass went on a breakaway. Kieran Millan made the save, and seconds later Nieto took a lead pass on a two-on-one breakout and beat Kevin Boyle to close the gap.

“That certainly got us going,’’ said BU coach Jack Parker. “We’d just given up a breakaway on a stupid play, but instead of going down, 3-0, it was 2-1, thanks to Nieto.’’
...
As for Nieto, you might as well pencil him in for 34 goals this season - one for each game - and no doubt a bunch more in the postseason. The Terriers have played five contests, and the sophomore forward out of Long Beach, Calif., has scored in each one.

I tried to tell you guys that he should have been a top 3 guy on our prospect poll. He's a big time talent and might be the Sharks next star. Of course, the year is still young but I doubt this is just a Seto-esque hot streak.

I can't answer for others but for myself, I am perfectly fine misjudging talent if it is because they are much better than I give them credit for.

What's his game like outside of an offensive role? Even if he doesn't pan out offensively, are there other qualities that may earn him some type of a pivotal role? Hockey smarts or defense perhaps?

He's not one-dimensional if that is what you want to know. I don't think he's a future Selke winner but I think his ceiling is a Paul Kariya type (key word being ceiling...his shot is not at Kariya's level). He definitely has other attributes that will see him a full time NHL player even if his offense should not translate as well to the NHL level.

i agree, he's definitely not a one dimensional player. He already plays in all situations (PP, PK) and has been very good all over the ice. I also don't think this is just an early season 'hot streak' as he ended last season the same way.

He's also a great skater with game breaking speed...so ya, if his goal scoring doesn't translate to the pro level, he should still be able to turn himself into a decent NHLer.

Heemskerk notched ECHL Stockton's first home win of the season (4-3). (He's got the team's two wins of the season in his two starts.)

Hey, I was singing his praises at the end of last season (I made a huge post about him in the previous prospects thread) because I saw like 4 or 5 BU games from then, and I was really impressed.

If i remember correctly Nieto was 5'11" when drafted. Now he's 6'. If he continues to get taller i really think he could be something special.

He and Coyle have great chemistry. Really makes me miss Coyle.

Check this sequence from Friday’s game that begins with a UMass breakaway and you’ll see Nieto (#17) backchecking and intercepting a centering pass following the initial save. Then follow him up ice for a goal. Turning point of the game.

Link to video highlights of BU’s games this season.

Nieto was cut from the Jr. National Team evaluation roster last summer. His recent play should earn him reconsideration.

Freddie Hamilton seems to be putting up some pretty superb numbers in the OHL; I'm surprised I hear so little about him. 10 G 15 A in 15 games.

I just remember there being a lot of hype around him going into his draft year, and his stock dropped into round 2. no doubt left a bad taste in my mouth.

and i have to look at Mitchell every game, and he was once the speedy college guy with the good numbers.

A ton of guys that would have been on Team Canada for the WJC are staying the NHL, it seems (Couturier, Smith-Pelly, Johansen, RNH) so I bet Hamilton and Sgarbossa get serious looks.

Bob Mac tweeted about the Wild prospect, Bulmer, getting some looks after he made the NHL team and was sent back to juniors. Even with all the early promotions, Canada has a tough group to crack. Still, great news for their chances like you said.

Heemskerk notches another win; named #2 SOTG


Edit:
http://www.recordnet.com/apps/pbcs.d...r+Headlines%29
Three starts, 3 wins (and the team's only wins) - getting more offensive support than other goalie.
