    At 25 he’s not a prospect:

    “Goaltender Francis Marotte signed with the New York Islanders, the 25-year-old announced on his Instagram page Friday night.

    Marotte is a former goaltender at Robert Morris University and Clarkson University. During his senior year at Clarkson, Marotte had a .938 save percentage and a 1.78 goals-against average. The 6’1” goalie went 23-8-3 during the 2019-20 season.”

    St. Denis was under contract to the NY Islanders last season
    Martel was under contract to Florida (After being dealt from Tampa) last season
    Brodeur is indeed the son of HOF Devils G Martin Brodeur

    Based off this quote "I'm excited to announce I'll be starting my pro career in the Islanders organization", I'd wager this is likely an AHL contract.

    Ryan Fitzgerald is listed on the Krefeld Pinguine (DEL) roster for 20/21.

    edit: Brother Casey is also on the roster. He played for Rochester last season but I don't see him here or on Booba's AHL contracts list. I'm wondering if it was just an ATO.

    Ryan Fitzgerald (UFA) is indeed signed in Krefeld; Casey (under contract with Buffalo) had been there on loan – they went together – but has since returned to Sabres' training camp having not appeared in a game in the DEL and would expect him to be assigned to Rochester once the AHL season begins.

    Marotte is a first-year pro who played college hockey last season.

    How is he not a prospect?

    if you see it as, he is a rookie pro, just starting his career, yes you can label him a prospect

    but folks who evaluate farm systems and pipelines have some informal guidelines, and this guy, being already 25, falls outside those
    these guidelines were created less for cases like his, rather re guys who came over from Euro pro leagues at 25 or older ...

    aside from being 25, he is just signed to an AHL deal, he is an extreme long-shot to have much, if any, tenure in NHL

    Fair point. Used to be an issue for us at HockeysFuture, particularly with goalies - who tend to reach the NHL later, ie Jordan Binnington. Had we still been around during the Blues' cup year, he would have no longer been a prospect.

    With regards to Marotte, since it was an AHL deal, we would not have considered him a prospect.
