I don't know if anyone has given you guys a update on Johan Gustafsson so I will give you a short one.
Johan Gustafsson has played 8 games in net for VIK, with a GAA 2,11 (second best in league). Johan also has a SVS% of 92,31 (fourth best in league) but you guys should now that the team he plays for does not have the best of defence compared with the other teams so for a 18 year old to beat Sperrle (Sperrle is a very good goalie with tons of experience) for the nr 1 spot and play like this is truly amazing. Johan Gustafsson in my eyes is the best swedish goalie prospect right now

Both of you, thanks for the first-hand updates! Please keep them coming.

Not our prospect but thought some of you might want to know that a free agent tryout we had in camp, JT Barnett, is off to a great start. Kamloops: GP: 17 G: 5 A: 9 P: 14
Russo mentioned the Wild interested in him. Surprised we didn't sign an 18 year old who is 6'1 192 and is putting up respectable numbers. But, then again, he wasn't drafted so that's why they pay scouts...
