MINOR PRO

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (AHL, 42-30-2-2, 3rd in East Division)

Using a strong finish with a 6-2 record in April the Baby Pens made the playoffs for the 11th consecutive year, tied for longest active streak with Milwaukee. WBS had the worst offense in the Eastern Conference - but also allowed the fewest goals in the entire league. For this Jeff Zatkoff and Brad Thiessen won the Hap Holmes Memorial Award, the AHL equivalent to the NHL's William Jennings Trophy. It is Thiessen's second award after sharing it with John Curry in '10-11. Zatkoff also set a club record for best GAA in a single season as well as new personal bests across the board.

Mid-season acquisition Chad Kolarik finished 3rd in points and 4th in goals in the league. His hat trick Apr 14 at St. John's was the team's first since early November. Kolarik is the Baby Pens' first 30 goal scorer since Janne Pesonen and Chris Minard both hit the mark in '08-09 (although Kolarik scored half his goals while still with Connecticut). Trevor Smith topped 20 goals for the 6th straight season while Riley Holzapfel set new career highs in goals, assists and points. Paul Thompson doubled his goal total in his 2nd pro year despite missing 18 games. Alex Grant took advantage of more PP time, scoring 9 points in 12 games after Joe Morrow was traded.

To bolster their offense in the playoffs WBS acquired veteran scoring winger Derek Nesbitt at the AHL trade deadline. The undrafted Ontario native had 26 goals in 66 games for Peoria at the time of the trade, then played only one game for the Baby Pens due to injury but he is ready for the playoffs. The first playoff round (best of five) between 4th seed Binghamton and 5th seed Wilkes-Barre/Scranton starts Saturday.

Wheeling Nailers (ECHL, 31-29-3-9, 3rd in Atlantic Division)

Thanks to a bad stretch drive and unbalanced conferences Wheeling missed the playoffs by six points. Reid McNeill was recalled to WBS after the Nailers season was over. However Keven Veilleux was not, and his time in the Penguins system should be over. Goalie Patrick Killeen was traded to Columbus at the deadline but had already been exiled to the Orlando Solar Bears earlier. Alex Velischek signed an ECHL contract after his college career had ended, and got into a couple of games for the Nailers.

Wheeling finished last in attendance and has now been in the bottom three in ECHL attendance for 4 years running.

NCAA

Losing NCAA champion Kenny Agostino and Frozen Four participant Ben Hanowski at the deadline removed two of our best forwards from our college pipeline. The Pens however improved their goalie depth by signing Eric Hartzell after he finished his senior year at Quinnipiac with a trip to the Frozen Four. The 6'4, 188 lbs Minnesota native was a top 3 finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, a 1st team All-American, ECAC Player of the Year and the USCHO College Player of the Year for this season.

Of the remaining seniors Nick D'Agostino should have the best chance to get an ELC. He apparently suffered an injury in his final college game, a double OT loss to Quinnipiac, so he has not been brought in to WBS.

Notre Dame won the final championship of the now-defunct CCHA, beating Bowling Green, Ohio State and finally Michigan along the way. If Bryan Rust returns for his senior year he will see lots of new opponents as Notre Dame will be joining Hockey East.

After winning their first ever Hockey East championship UMass-Lowell continued their hot streak all the way to their first ever Frozen Four appearance where they lost 2-3 in OT to eventual champions Yale. Scott Wilson produced 4-5-9 in 7 playoff games. Sean Maguire made 41 saves as Boston University defeated archrivals Boston College 6-3 in the Hockey East semifinal before falling 0-1 to UMass-Lowell.

Seniors
G Eric Hartzell (23, free agent '13) - Quinnipiac (30-8-5, 1st in ECAC): 30-7-5, 1.57 GAA, .933 SP, 5 SO

JUNIOR LEAGUES

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League:

Val d'Or dispatched Prince Edward Island in 6 games in Round 1 but were swept in Round 2 by Blainville-Boisbriand. Anton Zlobin has since joined Wilkes-Barre on a tryout but has yet to be signed to an ELC by Pittsburgh.

Val d'Or Foreurs (35-27-0-6, 4th in Telus West Division)
F Anton Zlobin (20, 6th rd. '12): 29-62-91, 34 PIM, +9 (61 gp) / playoffs: 2-8-10, 4 PIM, +0 (10 gp)


Ontario Hockey League:

London strolled through the first two playoff rounds, sweeping Saginaw then beating Kitchener in 5 games. The Knights play the Plymouth Whalers in the Western Conference Finals, the series is currently tied 1-1. Captain Scott Harrington was held out of the entire Round 1 to further rehab his shoulder injury.

Matia Marcantuoni and his Rangers beat Guelph in Round 1 before bowing out against London. Marcantuoni scored his first career playoff goal in the latter series, it was the GWG in the Rangers' lone win. He is currently in Wilkes-Barre on a tryout.

Matt Murray played the first playoff series of his junior career against Owen Sound, the Greyhounds lost in 6 games. Murray recorded a 36 save shutout for a 1-0 win in Game 4. Murray and Clark Seymour had short tryout stints with Wilkes-Barre but are expected to return for another junior season (in Seymour's case as an overager).

London Knights (50-13-2-3, 1st in Midwest Division)
D Scott Harrington (20, 2nd rd. '11): 3-16-19, 26 PIM, +21 (50 gp) / playoffs: 0-1-1, 6 PIM, -1 (7 gp)

G Matthew Murray (18, 3rd rd. '12): 26-19-2-2, 3.67 GAA, .894 SP, 1 SO / playoffs: 2-3-1, 2.67 GAA, .910 SP, 1 SO

Peterborough Petes (26-35-3-4, 4th in East Division)
D Clark Seymour (19, 5th rd. '12): 3-10-13, 61 PIM, -7 (62 gp) / missed playoffs


Western Hockey League:

Portland took a while to get going in the playoffs, needing 6 games to dispatch Everett in Round 1 before sweeping Spokane in Round 2. The Winterhawks are currently up 2-0 against Kamloops in the Western Conference Finals.Derrick Pouliot leads all WHL defensemen in playoff scoring.

Prince Albert's cinderella season came to an abrupt end as the Raiders were swept in Round 1 by Red Deer. Harrison Ruopp has since been signed by the Pens to an entry-level contract (3 years at a $650,833 cap hit), and is currently in Wilkes-Barre on a tryout.

Portland Winterhawks (57-12-1-2, 1st in U.S. Division)
D Derrick Pouliot (19, 1st rd. '12): 9-36-45, 60 PIM, +35 (44 gp) / playoffs: 4-10-14, 8 PIM, +9 (12 gp)

Prince Albert Raiders (37-28-3-4, 2nd in East Division)
D Harrison Ruopp (20, trade with PHO '12): 1-15-16, 132 PIM, +11 (65 gp) / playoffs: 0-0-0, 4 PIM, -2 (4 gp)



EUROPE

The future of Alex Pechurskiy is up in the air as all three Magnitogorsk goalies are free agents. Having nothing left to prove at the lower levels he should aim to become be a KHL backup somewhere. Oscar Sundqvist's junior team lost to MoDo in the second round of the J20 playoffs. Parent club Skellefteå won the Elitserien championship in a sweep over Luleå but Sundqvist saw no playoff action for them. He is eligible for another junior season but should get a couple more looks at the top level, or maybe a loan to the 2nd tier pro Allsvenskan league.

Yuzhny Ural Orsk (31-18-3-0, 5th in Russian Major League)
G Alexander Pechurskiy (22, 5th rd. '08): 22-11-2, 1.83 GAA, .935 SP, 5 SO / no playoff action

Skellefteå AIK Juniors (9-7-2, 6th in J20 SuperElit Top 10)
*F Oscar Sundqvist (19, 3rd rd. '12): 17-16-33, 48 PIM, +13 (38 gp) / playoffs: 3-2-5, 4 PIM, -1 (5 gp)
Great write-up as always, its nice to see a lot of the prospects having successful years. I am very interested to see what Kühnhackl does next year with a full under his belt

Which of our forward prospects have the highest ceiling? Zlobin?

When will the Pens actually need a top six or even top nine winger in the next couple of years? Assuming Dupuis and Iginla sign for three years, Malkin is extended and Sutter signs a three year deal in two years, you have:
LW Dupuis C Crosby RW Iginla
LW Jokinen C Malkin RW Neal
LW ? C Bennett RW Bennett

Maybe Kunitz takes a home town discount as well. Plus some of the young D prospects can be moved for a winger.

i've been led to believe that Blueger has the most natural talent among the forward prospects.

I think Archibald, if he continues to progress, is pretty darn certain to have realistic potential in a top-9 or perhaps even top-6, or top-9/to-6 tweener kind of role (a really good 3rd line guy who could move up if needed), kind of like a rich man's Kennedy: a gritty, 2-way forward with goal-scoring potential who can put up numbers and make an impact on both ends of the ice and on special teams. I see Archibald as a guy who could turn pro right now (like Bryan Rust), or could play one more year.

I see Wilson as a more one-dimensional skilled player who may be more in the mold of, say, a Zack Boychuk: a guy whose offensive skills may or may not translate to the pros or to the NHL. I think Wilson definitely needs another year in college to continue his hockey and physical/off-ice development and 2-way play. So I think Archibald has both more upside, and also more of a sure thing, but it will take some time to know for sure.

I would say that either Blueger or Sundqvist have the highest ceiling, but I think Kuhnhackl could be right in that conversation, as well. Kuhnhackl has the best frame, natural offensive instincts and shooting ability of our prospects, but it's all about getting healthy and putting in the work in his off-ice conditioning. If Archibald's offense could translate to the NHL, he could be in the mix as well. So I think these 4 guys are our "best" forward prospects, with guys like Rust, Megna and Wilson a notch below them.

^ Fixed

I really don't see us retaining Jokinen if we can re-sign Iginla, Dupuis and either Cooke or Morrow. I think Jokinen is a candidate to be traded/waived/bought-out this summer if we successfully re-sign those guys.

And yes, I would like to see Kunitz retained, of course. In the even that this happens, I do believe we would need one additional top-9 forward in about 1-2 years, because I think in a couple of years, a 3rd line guy like Morrow/Cooke could decline or their contract may end, and they could either be bumped down to the 4th line or be replaced. If Jeffrey is not a candidate to replace him (in other words, if we are forced to trade him), then I see the need for a guy like Archibald, Kuhnhackl or someone else to come in and be able to produce (15-20 goals) in a top-6 or top-9 role.

His game is really fun to watch. The thing is that I think he's a natural center so we'll see how that goes long term. He reminds me a lot of Krejci or Loktionov, who has looked good since getting his chance in NJ.

So far extremely pathetic game by london. Gave up a 4-0 lead and harrington was on the ice for all goals against. Maata so far has an assist and is a +1. Seems like harringtons been struggling lately. Anybody have a chance to see him?

I think Archibald and Wilson will both turn pro next summer, assuming they have strong junior years, and I expect they will.

That'll be a damn good crop of incoming players for Wilkes-Barre... Wilson & Archy, plus Pouliot and Maatta, Rust, Matt Murray, etc.

London coughed up a four goal lead over Plymouth but won 5-4 on a Max Domi overtime goal to claim the series 4-1. Olli Määttä had an assist, Scott Harrington was scoreless and a -3. The Knights will meet Barrie or Belleville in the OHL finals.

Derrick Pouliot had 2 assists as the Winterhawks beat Kamloops 4-1 to advance to the WHL finals for the third consecutive year. Pouliot remains the top scoring defensemen in the playoffs with 16 points in 15 games. Teammate and Blues prospect Ty Rattie has a mind-boggling 15-16-31 in 15 games.

After the hot start by Pouliot, hes been a bit colder lately. Gernat has almost catched up to him and are only 1 point behind in the scoring race. He also has 1 game less played, and more goals. Lets hope the 2-point game is the start of a new hot-streak so he can keep the lead

Portland are quite the force. Is it likely that Petan will stay there for another year, Rattie?

I can't imagine a small guy like Petan will jump straight into the NHL so he'll definitely be back there next year. Rattie will turn pro and play for the Blues AHL team.

Gonna be a lot of turnover on their blueline though, with Rutkowski & Wotherspoon turning pro. I'd give about a 50% chance that Seth Jones sticks in the NHL as well, depending on who drafts him and how he performs. Which is probably good for Pouliot's development.

Yes, although Gernat is a year older, so we can use that as an excuse for his relative dominance.

True. And at the same time, if Portland isn't a top contender next season, I wouldn't be surprised if Pouliot were to be traded out to another team at some point before the deadline.

I don't think the bolded is accurate. What Harrington brings to the table can't be measured on the stat sheet. Or it can, but you have to look elsewhere. Namely, Vincent Trochek has 1 goal in the series versus the Knights. He lead the OHL in scoring in the regular season, and was tearing it up in the playoffs before the Knights' series.

They showed a stat last night on Sportsnet during the game. Other than Tom Wilson, who has been on fire, the majority of Plymouth's big guns have only scored 1 goal or less in the 4 games prior to last night, including the aforementioned Trochek. IMO, a lot of that has to do with Harrington's play as a shutdown defender.

Yeah, that game the other night, it was just bad luck for Harry that he was on for 4 goals against. He was not at fault for any of them. It was a collective/team failure that led to all those goals, and certainly not him in particular.


That being said, he doesn't *quite* look to be 100% himself. I wonder if there are any lingering effects (i.e. conditioning, etc.) from the injury he sustained. If that's the case, though, the good news is he should continue to get stronger & better as/if the Knights advance further.

So, with us starting picking in the 3rd round. What are some players we can hope fall to us?

I would love Sven andrighetto. 98 points in 53 games in the regular season and 30 in 14 in the playoffs. The only chance he falls to the 3rd is that hes a 93 born so therefore a 2 year overager.

The nice thing with that is that he can go right away to the AHL and will be closer to making a contribution than a 95 born.

Andrighetto has been passed over in the draft twice already so AFAIK he can simply be signed without anyone having to spend a pick on him. Who knows whether he even wants to work his way up to through the minors anyway, he already has a contract back home in Switzerland.

Sven Andrighetto would be very welcome.

Is Draisatl available in this draft?

Oh also. Where is Fucale likely to go? Would love to get him.

1st or 2nd round. Extremely overated imo. Nothing about him really stands out. Everything needs work.

Draisatl isnt eligable this year. If he were, it would be far too high for us anyway ;(

Fucale is ranked the No1 goalie and could go in the 1st round, no later than 2nd tho. I think its pretty safe to say he isnt around when we pick (if we dont aquire a higher pick).
