Slightly off topic, but one interesting Latvian prospect is Haralds Egle. He's a tall, highly skilled 1996-born forward.

Saw him play plenty this year. He's got the physical tools to make it into the big leagues in North America.

He needs to improve his skating and decision making with the puck.

He is a physical guy, can block a lot of shots and has a decent slapper from the poiint.

Needs to developp his mobility

He'll be a 20 years old player next year, could see him making an ECHL team. He's a project, not sure about the NHL.

What about Miks Indrasis? He was pretty good at the world champs.

Yeah he certainly deserves a spot on the list also why isn`t Rihards bukarts on the list? probably the most talented 16 year old Latvia has. http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=52418

Also Nikita Jevpalovs is a good prospect for Latvia.

Best prospects for Belarus are likely:

1. Arturs Gavrus
2. Kirill Gotovets
3. Roman Hrabarenka
4. Oleg Yevenko
5. Denis Dalidovich

Not sure about Ukraine and Kazakhstan and it looks like Latvia has been answered quite a few times.

IMO, Ukraine and Kazakhstan are quite far behind Latvia and Belarus in their hockey and development. Both are now taking steps in the right direction by creating a development system and both now having a KHL team, but it will be quite a bit before we see an NHL prospect from either of these countries.

Wow, this list is quite old. From those 92's and 93's, only Pelss and perhaps Kuzmenkovs and Gudlevskis warrant attention. Kolesnikovs has not even been mentioned. Indrasis is 91, so he's already 21.
The list now (16-18 year olds) would include:
- Girgensons 94
- Blueger 94
- Nikita Jevpalovs 94
- Roberts Lipsbergs 94
- Georgs Golovkovs 95 (top scorer on WM18 this year)
- Rihards Bukarts 31.12.1995
- Haralds Egle 96
- Maybe Edgars Kulda 94 (brother of Winnepeg prospect Arturs Kulda)

How about Lithuania? Are there any prospects worth of following for the future?

I only saw one Lithuanian this season, Daniel Bogdziul. However, he looked like a player who could develop into something. I liked his offensive game as he was good at distributing the puck and seemed to have a decent shot. However he could have played more physically. But it was his first year in Finland, so I´d probably wait untill next season and see if he will improve in this.

This dude had crazy numbers for a fourteen year-old in U18 WC. It's 2A tournament but still. Actually all that Lithuanian roster is as underaged as it probably gets.

It's worth keeping eye on this Ukrainian, he currently plays for the best youth school in Russia - Traktor Chelyabinsk. Although he wasn't as dominant as he should have in order to be considered as a NHL prospect he still is one the best Ukrainian prospects out there. It's crazy that he comitted to Ukrainian NT and didn't go the route of Zherdev, Babchuk or Sobchenko.

Is probably the hottest Kazakh prospect out there. Unfortunately passport issues ruled him out of the U18 WC so we didn't have the chance to sim him perform on International stage. Although Kazakh league isn't really that good, he had better numbers in this league than any other Kazakh youngster that played for the National team. Fun fact, he even managed to play against his father, naturalized Russian, this year. All in all Kazakhs have way more impressive prospects in pipeline than Ukrainians. If Russia won't raid their ranks they will be a country on the up at the International level.

Probably because hockey seems to be the most popular sport in Latvia and Belarus's dict-, ahem president is pumping money into their hockey development system while Ukraine and Kazahkstan are drowning in corruption. Sad to see, Ukraine and Kazahkstan seemed to be doing pretty well in the late 90s early 00's, developed quite a few prospects (Russia "stole" quite a few of Ukraines like Zherdev and Babchuk).
