Brynas lost 3-0 today, eliminated from the play-offs. Ohlund free to come to WBS now I assume.
Don't know if this was noted anywhere, but despite going undrafted last year, Bellerive scored more regular season goals (46) in junior this year than any 2017 draftee.
Pretty cool. Too bad he's not eligible to play in the AHL next year.
Great first game for Gustavsson in the AHL. Made 37 saves and only allowed 2 goals. Maybe we should've kept him and sent Jarry to Ottawa instead.
I think he'll probably be joining WBS within the next few days, but yeah, he can't play in the AHL to start next year.
Edit: for some reason, I thought his team sucked and they missed the playoffs. They apparently made it and they're up 2-0 in their 1st round series. He has 2 goals and 4 points in 2 games so far, Lethbridge has been scoring at will in this round. 8-3 and 6-0 wins in the playoffs so far.
That Slovenian prospect Drozg(sp)
Very impressive skill set
Someone said in the last thread that since be wasnt drafted, that he is eligible to play in the AHL.
Is Robert Dome ready yet?
Yeah I saw that as well. Would be interesting to see how he would do moving up.
That's not true, I don't see any rule that makes me think that. The rule is just that if a player is under 20 and a CHL team owns their rights, they can't be sent to the AHL.
Almari heading to WBS
Looks like the Penguins were interested in Brady Ferguson, Andrew Sturtz and Chase Berger. Unfortunately, Ferguson has signed with the Marlies, but Sturtz and Berger are still up for grabs.
The Penguins have no problem going back to college
A couple people here have been pretty high on him.
Good name for a buddy cop duo. Berger could be the fat one.
Guerin on Sturtz : “I haven’t seen too many kids play the game harder than him at the college level.”
Guerin on Berger : “He’s turned into a really solid two-way player”
I think that article was mainly about guys the Pens have had at camp in the past.
Haven't seen him, but one of the last things Sexton said as head Pens scout was that Almari would play in Pittsburgh - throw in that and plenty of time in a men's league, and I'm as high on him as I can be based on internet scuttlebutt.
Can't really find video on him except an interview of some sorts. Judging from stats in HPK more of a stay at home D man?
Still crowded at forward. Should see some trades in the offseason for picks or dmen.
Blueger and Sprong ready next year(are this year imo but blocked).
Next wave coming in are Ohlund, Bellerive, Drozg, and Bjorkqvist.
Sturtz und Berger, Wiener polizei freunde.
Real strong skater.. can move the puck.. hard shot but doesn't really take them in games.. 2-way Dman
I feel like this is all anyone has on him. I don't remember reading any scouting reports or observations of him here? Statistically, he is essentially unchanged between last season and this one (other than more games played in the big league). Until someone actually watched him among (potential) NHL competition, it's difficult to get too excited about him.
I have heard nothing but good things about Almari, I'm excited for him. I'll trust their words over stat watching for Liiga games.
Some serious offensive talent potentially next year in WBS.
