Americans in the American Hockey League

I know most people are pissed about the lockout, me included, but I'm trying to be an optimist. I'm fortunately located within easy drive of three AHL teams and am going to try and take advantage of this sad situation.

I'm curious which AHL franchises will have the best young American talent, as those are the players I'm most interested in.

Rockford seems to be loaded with Leddy, Saad, Clendening


Toronto: Gardiner

Hershey: I don't know if Carlson would play or not.


Connecticut: Stepan? Kreider?

Syracuse: Palmieri, Fowler? Etem

Texas: Campbell

Bridgeport: Nelson

Charlotte: Faulk, Mcbain.



If I'm correct is 1992 is the cutoff for junior players? Or will Charlie Coyle and Austin Watson be in the Ahl this year?

I am expecting Austin Watson to be in Milwaukee this season. He played some playoff games 2 years ago. I have been waiting for his return ever since.

Milwaukee always has several players from the USA. Jeremy Smith is from Dearborn. Chris Mueller was from Buffalo. Chris Cahill is from MA. Ryan Flynn, Ryan Thang, Jeff Foss and Mark Van Guilder were all from Minnesota. Jon Blum is from California.

The Ads also had a 4-pack of Finns as well as some 15 Canadians.

McBain was traded, wasn't he? Americans currently rostered are John Muse, Rob Madore, Joe Sova, Beau Schmitz, Austin Levi, Justin Faulk, Drayson Bowman, Sean Dolan, and A.J. Jenks. It's a crowded camp, so we'll see if this changes soon.

Are you sure that you aren't mixing him up with Dumoulin?

As to the OP's question, Anaheim will have Etem, Palmieri, Clark, Lasch, and Wagner as the major American prospects down in Norfolk. Fowler played over 160 games, so we couldn't send him down.

Charlie Coyle, Jason Zucker, Justin Fontaine, Chad Rau, Brian Connelly and Drew Bagnall for Houston Aeros. I don't think I missed any for that team.

Doh- you're right. I was thinking of Dumo.

Steve Kampfer, Nick Palmieri are American.

Fontaine is Canadian(despite playing at UMD).

On Rockford there's Morin as well, aside from the three you've already mentioned. Those are the most interesting US guys on the team but there's also Ben Smith, Jimmy Hayes, Brandon Bollig (although already 25), and Joe Lavin.
