Not sure, but I am guessing he just went to the AHL's website and sorted by rookies for the stats. For some reason Vatanen isn't listed as a rookie on the AHL's website.

The fact that Vatanen was drafted four years ago, and Granlund was drafted three years ago? Maybe that (or their contracts) makes some technical differences as far as their transfers to North America is concerned.

I don't know the answer, but that's what I'm guessing.

This isnt an answer, but if Granland had played in the CHL when he was drafted, this would be his first season of AHL eligibility

Silvferberg is listed as a rookie and is older than Vatanen.

I'm thinking its just an error on the AHL's website were the stats were taken from.

How has Chris Wagner, Tyler Toffoli, Zac Dalpe, and Cam Schilling looked so far this season?

Probably a mistake.

I missed most of the last game, but I hope Antoine Corbin keeps up his solid play. He's got size and a bit of nastiness to his game. Nothing over aggressive, but he will get in people's faces.

If he is consistent throughout the year and Montreal doesn't sign him, then I hope another team does. It's a very, very, VERY small sample, but he's looking to be a 4, 5, 6 guy with size and a bit of toughness.

In the 3 games for the Dogs I've watched, Corbin has been, imo, top 3 for the dogs. I could be biased, though.

Chris Wagner has been great. He has 4 points in 4 games playing on the 4th line, he has been one of our better two way fowards. Lights out on the PK and taking faceoffs. Really feisty and has a nose for the net.

This thread needs more love.

Anyways, Marlies vs Bulldogs, what an awesome game that was. Marlies won 5-4 in OT.

Marlies
Nazem Kadri: He had an up and down game. He finished with an assist on Zigomanis's goal which was a beauty. The Bulldogs did a really good job of containing him, but as soon as they gave him even a little space, he created chances. He got stripped of the puck very easily though. You can tell he wants to absolutely crush guys. He must have taken 3 or 4 runs at guys. He barely even hit them, but the intent was there. He's playing less selfish and you can see how badly he wants to win. Kudos to him.
Carter Ashton: Had a goal off of Komarov's beautiful rush, but other than he didn't look very good. He had a few turnovers and didn't seem engaged at all.
Joe Colborne: Very strong game from him. He didn't pick up a point, but every time he was on the ice he was creating a ton of chances. He looked very strong on the puck and forechecked hard. He protected the puck extremely well.
Jerry D'Amigo: Barely even noticed him. He took a penalty. He didn't seem willing to battle today.
Greg McKegg: He's adjusted to the pro game much quicker than I expected. He had a goal off of a very hard shot. He's a darkhorse to keep an eye on this year. He's going to fill the back of the net this year.
Leo Komarov: Fantastic game. He picked up an assist on Carter Ashton's goal. He burst down the wing and showed some nice speed, he lost the handle but Ashton was able to bury it. He's a pain in the ass to play against to. He's gets under the skins opposition, but he hasn't taken liberties on players yet, which I respect. If he keeps this play up he's going to be a very good player.

Bulldogs
Greg Pateryn: He had some good moments. He shot a few times on PP, but other than that didn't contribute offensively. Defensively he had some nice plays, but seemed to get beat quiet a bit. I noticed however he rarely lost a battle along the boards. He is very strong and seems to be adjusting to the speed pretty good.
Jarred Tinordi: Tonight he wasn't bad, but he wasn't good either. The puck seemed just out of reach for him all night. He had some trouble controlling it. He also got burned by some dekes as well. He got beat to the outside quiet a bit as well, but he recovered very nicely. Tinordi has really improved his skating over the summer. Not only does he not look as awkward but he's much much faster. The improvement is really night and day.
Nathan Beaulieu: Was much quieter offensively, but was surprisingly solid defensively. He was very poised and made some very good plays with his stick. He was pretty physical too, but didn't over do it. He had a bad pass in his own zone, but other than that, he played a quiet, composed, solid game.
Steve Quailer: He started off quietly, but boy did he ever had a good game. He picked up 2 assists, both from banging home in front of the net. He strung together a few good shifts in the second. He was carrying the puck and the defender tried to rub him out. Quailer just went right through him knocking him over. The puck went around the boards behind the net and then he hit the Marlie player and kept going. He also won a puck battle where 3 Marlies were pressuring him in open ice. If he gets more consistency in his game, he's going to be one hell of a player. He reminds me of a less physical Erik Cole. Once he gets going there's just no stopping him. He's a freight train.
Brendan Gallagher: Was all over the ice. He picked up his first career pro goal after banging home in front of the net. He also had an assist from a beautiful pass to St-Denis. He drove the net every single shift. Most of his shifts ended with him crashing the net. He had ten shots tonight and looked absolutely fantastic with Holland and Bournival.
Michael Bournival: He was great tonight. He picked up an assist. He can flat out fly down the ice, I think he may have been the fastest skater on the ice (okay, maybe Gardiner was). He was just skating circles around players at times. Along with his linemates, Gallagher and Holland, he went right to the net, and hard. He was playing with a ton of energy and looked very very good out there.
Joonas Nattinen: Solid game from Nattinen. He finished with an assist. He played with more passion tonight and looked great on the PK.
Patrick Holland: He was all over the ice. He's a fast skater, has incredible vision, and has great hands. He showed all of them tonight. He finished with an assist. I love how involved he was in the play and how willing he was to go to the net. He had a few very slick passes. He's could potentially rack up the points this year. Someone to keep an eye on.
Gabriel Dumont: Finally a game where he wasn't invisible. He was playing with fire tonight. He lined someone up and stuck out his knee. Good thing the Marlie was okay because it could have been bad, very dirty hit with bad intent. He was very involved in scrums though.
Morgan Ellis: He had a very good first game, but struggled tonight. He looked great confident with the puck though, never seemed pressure at all. He looked a little fatigued and didn't have the jump in his step that he normally does.
Blake Geoffrion: He's been playing with energy this season and he kept that momentum going. He was involved in almost every scrum tonight. He just kept going right to the net and played hard. He picked up an assist.

He's certainly been the Heat's most consistent forward so far.

Toffoli has looked solid. Tied for the points lead on the Monarchs through four games (2-2=4), and his skating seems better than advertised.

Gallagher - Once he scored, he seemed to get a huge confidence booster. It's what the young Dogs' team needs in order to survive as he's one of the main go-to guys for offense.

Beaulieu - He seems to be getting more and more confident offensively, but his defensive game still needs seasoning.

Tinordi - Was great his first few games, but now seems to be slipping a bit. He's a bigger man and I and I believe others assumed he wouldn't be as good as he can be in his first season. Took him a year in the OHL before he became a stalwart.

Holland - Wow, didn't think this guy would do all that well. He currently leads the dogs' in scoring. 1g 3a in 5 games.

Qualier - Looks like he just needs to bulk up with his 6'4 frame and has an ok shot at being an NHLer.

Corbin - May be a -5, but I still like his play and think he's still playing solid. Having a real goalie probably would have saved one, or two of his mistakes.

Dumont - Looking like he might have the ability to be a 4th line grinder/agitator at his stature.

Marlies

Kadri - Maybe I'm underrating the Dogs' defensive game, but I didn't really notice the guy except for 2-3 shifts. He's the top offensive prospect between the 2. Possibly just an off game.

McKegg - A little more speed and he's pretty much set as a bottom 6er for the AHL.

Gardiner - What needs to be said ?

Albany Devils

Adam Larsson- Been the best defenseman by far. Just watched a game where he totally shut down Schenn and his line. He's even developing his offensive game with 4 pts in 5 games.

Adam Henrique- Looks bored out there and doesnt look like he's trying much. Most Devils fans think he's using this to stay in shape. Still shows flashes of what has made him special.

Jacob Josefson- Josefson has really stepped up his game in the A. Looks out of place (in a good way). Every shift he shows his vision, skill and poise. If he can stay healthy and continue to get stronger, there is no reason why he cant be a 55-65 pt two-way center

Mattias Tedenby- Was hoping he'd do a little better. Still shows flashes, but gets knocked off the puck way too easily

Bobby Butler- Kowalsky put him on a line Henrique and it doesnt look like they've meshed at all. They are out of sync on the cycle, which is how Henrique prospers. He does have a wicked shot though

Harri Pesonen- This FA signing looks very good with Henrique. Strong on the puck with good offensive instincts. The numbers arent there, but I think he can crack NJ

Tatar and Nyquist were absolutely dominant against Charlotte last night. Boychuk scored a pretty goal and looked good out there as well for the Checkers

Caught the 3rd period of the Admirals-Ice Caps game.

Sami Vatanen-Added a goal to his great totals. He was given a lot of time at the point to pick a corner and just snipe a rocket. 7 points in 5 games. Did what he could to get his team back in the game. He was the only real threat to score from what I saw other than Kyle Palmieri. He's definitely a powerplay specialist. Had a few good rushes, a nice toe drag at the point, good boardplay, but got burned a few time.

Kyle Palmieri: Didn't end up scoring but it was clear that he could have. Showed off his hands and vision in the offensive zone. Had some good chances but couldn't convert

Frederik Andersen: 40 saves. The only reason the game was close. Very sound positionally. Was a bit rattled on the third goal. Freaked out a little and left the left side open.

Emerson Etem: Finally started to get noticeable. Good plays on the forecheck. Nice rushes. It wasn't a great game by any stretch, but it seems like a step in the right direction as he's been pretty underwhelming.

Devante Smith Pelly: He's been solid. Obviously he belongs in the NHL. The way he's been playing we would've been called up a while ago. Only downsize, in a team scrum, Devante kind of just watched. For a guy who could probably end up as an enforcer if he doesn't develop right, that's not a good thing.

Hampus Lindholm: Looks better every time I see him. And I'm not even trying to make myself okay with the Ducks passing on Forsberg, Trouba, and Grigorenko. Lindholm is doing that for me. Got an assist on an awesome shot that bounced to Smith Pelly. In his own zone, his positioning is just so great. I saw a few sequences where some IceCaps didn't know where to go because of where Hampus was posted up. Even more impressive was seeing Hampus directing his teammates in the defensive zone.

Chris Wagner: Happy with his decision to leave college. He's looked great so far. He's got a good nose for the net. It's possible that we're gonna come away with 4 great picks in 2010 in Fowler, Etem, Smith Pelly, and Wagner.

Alex Burmistrov: The guy is obsessed with trying to dangle players. I saw him getting overly fancy in the offensive zone and Peter Holland just picked his pocket and Burmi ended up looking pretty foolish.

Jason Jaffray: Didn't catch him much except on one penalty kill he took the puck all the way down the ice and it took 3 Admirals to take it away from him. Goal and an assist tonight. Nice game out of him.

Maxime Macenauer: Starting to see why Anaheim might of traded him. He was good in his 12 or so game stint early last year but it seems his play has dropped off since then.

Ben Maxwell: More of the same out of him from when I last watched him. Good in some instances, even NHL level play, but

That's all I got on the Jets side. Didn't pay attention to them as much.

The Wild have on of the best prospect bases in the league, if not the best. Is Coyle playing with Granlund? That might be a great pairing, seeing how well they are playing together, for the future in the NHL.

How is Etem and JT Miller playing as a side note?

Etem is having some difficulty adjusting to the pro game. He was used to dominating junior hockey but didn't do so by playing a pro game. I'd say Miller is still adjusting as well.

Hey guys, here's the sick Coyle goal from last night...

https://twitter.com/antontibaldi/sta...38918191681536

if you wanna follow me on twitter, i'll be doing these prospect videos (all teams) on a semi-consistent basis when prospects have big nights/score highlight reel goals/whatever. i'll have them up much faster than the official AHL/CHL sites (usually the night of or morning after)

Yea, Coyle is paired with Granlund. Zucker was on that line before until he got hurt. Now, Larsson has stepped in. Larsson has done well but Zucker made em a dominate line every shift. Coyle is also on first PP and PK. Looks great thus far. I think the NHL game with more cycling will benefit him even more (at least from what I have seen form the Aeros this year - not as much cycling as in the NHL) All of his goals have been in close with him in the right position for a pass/rebound (not including his nice wraparound backhand last night).

Today's game was largely won by Igor Bobkov. He stood on his head for a 38 save shutout.

Holland didn't get on the sheet, but I thought he and Wagner had pretty good games, particularly on the PK.
