Who is the next AHL prospect sitting in the wings, all but ripe and ready to make an impact?
Michael Amadio - Ontario Reign/LA Kings
kid has been on fire and is just about ready to take her the 3C spot for us... very similar to Mike Richards IMO..
I'm going to say Roslovic and then Appleton makes the roster next season.
For TBL - Erne and Peca are the two prospects to look out for in Syracuse making the jump to the NHL soon. Nobody on the defense is ready at the moment.
I may be partial as a Jets fan but I respectively favour Roslovic over the 2 Tampa and Kings prospects mentioned to date.
Any others from other teams that would rate up there?
Nick Merkley, Tucson Roadrunners. 34 pts in 26 games, 17 goals.
His stats look impressive alright! A little small but doesn't seem to be as much of an issue nowadays. I assume they will look at graduating him to the Yotes soon? Next year for sure considering their record this year.
For Calgary, Rasmus Andersson would be a regular if the Flames had room on the right side of the defense. He's probably next in line.
Let's be honest, it's impossible to tell these things. There are guys who are solid grinders that get called up and stick because they fill a role, not because they are scorers. Meanwhile someone like Josh Ho-Sang is up and down as they try to wait for him to "get it" and find a permanant role for him.
I will say I don't think Anders Bjork will be in Providence long.
