  1. Linus Karlsson Vancouver Canucks image courtesy of Fantasy Summary Midde-six scoring center Attributes Fantasy Upside 6.5 NHL Certainty 5.0 Country SWE Position C Roster Type System Shoot/Glove Right Date of Birth November 16, 1999 Height 6‘1” Weight 179 lbs Drafted 2018 Round 3; Overall: 87 On Emmanuel Perry’s list of every forward currently under the age of 19 who was technically eligible for the 2018 draft, Linus Karlsson, the Sharks’ third-round pick, ranks tied for 35 in terms of potential upside (WAR/82 in the NHL). That list is 1,752 names long and features names like Andrei Svechnikov, Vitali Kravstov, Filip Zadina, and Martin Kaut at or near the top. Karlsson’s 58 percent chance of making the NHL according to that model places him in even more rarefied air: 14th among that same group of 1,700+ teenage forwards. Age (as of September 9): 18Position: CenterShoots: RightSize: 6’1”, 187 poundsNationality: SWE2017 Ranking: N/AStaff Ranking: 11Acquired: 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Round 3, 87 overall2017-18 Team: Karlskrona J20, SuperElit2018-19 Team: Karlskrona, Allsvenskan Karlsson — a 6-foot-1, 187-pound center from Eksjö, Sweden — scored 56 points in 48 SuperElit games (including playoffs) last season. It’s important to note that those points were not empty calories, though he did acquire a healthy proportion on the power play. Betweenness — a measure of a player’s impact on his team’s scoring network — shows how much a given player relied on his teammates to score primary points. This is a list of the top 25 players in the entire SuperElit league last season, so many of the skaters listed here are a year or so older than Karlsson. In terms of even-strength scoring impact, Karlsson ranked among the top 20 skaters in his entire league. In all situations, thanks to his extra man contributions, Karlsson ranked ninth. This is all to say that his draft year season, which included one assist in 14 SHL games, was quite impressive. Emmanuel Perry’s model, which was referenced above, is not the only method of statistical comparison to look upon Karlsson favorably. The model Jeremy Davis of Canucks Armydeveloped only gave Karlsson a 23 percent chance of making the NHL thanks to this 2017-18 season. But Davis also found that Karlsson was involved in 41 percent of his team’s 5-on-5 goals, the highest such mark of any prospect Davis and Co. evaluated. Karlsson’s most-common teammates except one all produced better results when skating alongside the Sharks prospect. NHL players who have put together similar statistical seasons in the SuperElit league include Jesper Fast, Jakob Silfverberg, Gustav Nyquist, and Carl Hagelin. If Karlsson turns into the next Silfverberg, well, that’s a third-round pick well spent. What we like Per the information on Karlsson’s EliteProspects profile page, Draftin Europe scouts believe his strengths include a “nice shot and combines that with his ability to read developing holes in the offensive zone” and has a “quality game from faceoff dots to end-boards.” Karlsson positively impacts his teammates while consistently adding to his own stat sheet. He impressed many around the Swedish hockey world last season and was at one point rumored to be a trade targetof the SHL’s Rögle and 2017-18 league champion Växjö Lakers teams. For his hard work, Karlsson was named the SuperElit’s best forward. The Sharks picked Karlsson in the pick #40-100 range, which is typically where teams outperform Central Scouting rankings, especially when their picks diverge from the rankings. Karlsson has all the statistical makings of a star who was looked over a few times too many. Areas of Improvement According to The Athletic’s Corey Pronman, Karlsson could stand to work on his skating. At just 178 pounds, Karlsson will also likely need to spend some time lifting heavy weights and eating lots of protein in an attempt to add a little extra muscle to his frame as he heads into his first full professional season. Highlight Here, Karlsson notices his team has collected the puck safely in its own zone, so he heads up ice looking for the stretch pass. The pass connects — and here you can see where concerns about his skating come from — and Karlsson takes off toward the opposing net. He’s calm and steady on his skates during his approach and tosses just the right amount of dangles into the mix before finishing off the play in style. Soft hands. Concentration, not strength. If we have to wave goodby to least we have a younger Swede to take his place...!

Good shot. Reads plays well. Under Construction (Improvements to Make) Skating Consistency NHL Potential Gadjovich has the upside of a top-six power forward. He already has the frame and can only get stronger. I believe he is a little dependent on his linemates. He enjoyed a great deal of success playing on one of the OHL’s best lines with Nick Suzuki and Kevin Hancock. The situation Gadjovich lands in is worth watching. His floor is a bit lower as well given his hot and cold streaks. He has boom or bust potential. Risk-Reward Analysis Risk – 5/5, Reward – 4.5/5 Fantasy Hockey Potential Offence – 8/10, Defense – 7/10 Awards/Achievements Jonah Gadjovich won an OHL Gold Cup Championship in 2013-14.

He has a knack for finding open areas, opening up the ice for himself and his teammates. -- Canucks Army Center Arvid Costmar led Sweden in scoring and had the best performance in the tournament (u-18 5 Nations) among the Swedish forwards. He was the driving force behind Sweden’s offense all tournament. He played the game at a solid pace and has a knack for getting himself open is prime scoring spots. When he gets passes in a scoring position he wastes no time. When he shoots he gets really low and hammers a low one-time snap shot. He posted seven points including four goals. -- Draft Prospects Hockey

  16. The Canucks newest signing from today, an overage defenseman out of Windsor. His offensive numbers aren't dazzling for his age but by all reports he sounds like a mobile player who can move the puck well and you'd have to think there's a lot to his game we don't know about if the Canucks were willing to offer him an ELC. Plus, Windsor hosts the Memorial Cup this season so he'll gain some valuable experience there and we'll all get a chance to see him play which is nice. There should be a lot of competition for spots on defense in Utica next season, as Chatfield will be up against guys like Brisebois, Neill, and Olson who could all potentially turn pro.

  22. Article from someone I know and trust. Have had the opportunity to watch the Comets recently and I cannot get over how good OJ has been let along Lind and Bailey. OJ has been DOMINANT in many games. Something like plus 10 or 12 over the past couple of weeks. Fully healthy for first time in two years and he is looking NHL ready and dangerous on every shift (in a good way, not in his own end). Enjoy the article. Canuck Prospect Update - 20 January 2020 Canucks prospects tracker: Juolevi levels up, Lind-Bailey Worldwide Mike Raptis Published:January 20, 2020 Updated:January 20, 2020 8:07 AM EST Filed Under: Toronto SUN Olli Juolevi (right) celebrates with his Utica teammates after Brogan Rafferty (left) scored a goal on / Utica Comets It’s the latest edition of the weekly tracker, where we tally up the efforts of the Vancouver Canucks’ highest-profile prospects: OLLI JUOLEVI Olli moly — Juolevi’s finally finding his groove with the Utica Comets. 12 points in his last 11 games. A plus-12 over that stretch. And a peek at what the polarizing 2016 first-rounder can be as a professional. The 6-foot-2, 183-pound defenceman had another solid week with the streaking AHL club. In Wednesday’s 6-5 overtime win over Hartford — a game the Comets led 5-0 after the first period — Juolevi went a plus-two with an assist and a shot on net. The assist came on a beautiful goal by fellow D-man Brogan Rafferty, who took a quick Juolevi pass and did the rest, undressing a defender before deking out the Wolf Pack goalie. Rafferty had a goal and three assists in the game, but has been sidelined with an injury since. Juolevi really stood out in Friday’s 6-3 win over the Cleveland Monsters, netting third-star honours with a goal, an assist and a plus-3 rating. The goal, his second of the season, was scored on the rush, with Juolevi joining the play and wiring a wrist shot past the goalie’s glove side. Then in Saturday’s 6-2 win over the same Monsters, Juolevi had another strong game, assisting on another goal while going plus-two. The assist came on the power play, with Juolevi’s heavy wrist shot tipped into the net by Kole Lind. “Last night’s game and tonight’s I thought we were very efficient,” said head coach Trent Cull after the win. “We did the things we needed to do and I thought on the defensive side of the puck we did really good things as well.” Juolevi, a team-worst minus-12 a few short weeks ago, is now even overall and has two goals and 17 assists in 33 games this season. He’s also been a big part of the Comets’ current run of good play, with the North Division leaders winning three in a row and seven of their last ten games. Kole Lind (right) and Justin Bailey (centre) have been padding each other’s stats lately. Utica Comets / KOLE LIND AND JUSTIN BAILEY It’s a bromance netting big results. Linemates Lind, 21, and Bailey, 24, are on a tear together with the Comets, with the latter scoring goals at a historical clip of late. Lind, a 2018 second-rounder, has six points in his last three games. Good stuff. But Bailey, a 2013 second round pick by the Buffalo Sabres, has three hat tricks in four games and is the first AHLer in nine years to do it in consecutive games. 97 people are talking about this In Wednesday’s win, Lind, a right-shot winger, had an assist, a plus-one rating and a shot on net. Bailey had three goals — all in the first period. Then in Friday’s win, Lind had a goal and two assists while Bailey scored another three and added a helper. Lind made sure Bailey got the hat trick by dishing the puck over for a goal into an empty net. “Kole’s like my little brother and we’ve found a lot of chemistry,” Bailey said post game. “It’s been a special week for sure, but … you don’t score goals by yourself, especially in pro hockey.” “(Bailey) gets in on the forecheck and creates a lot of turnovers,” Lind said. “I think it helps our line in general, we have a lot of chemistry and we seem to find each other in the O-zone.” These two are even chirping each other on social media. This could be the best thing since ‘Dragon’ and ‘Knight Hawk’ formed Prestige Worldwide in Step Brothers. Bailey is with his third pro franchise, having skated with the Sabres (52 GP, 5G, 3A) and the Philadelphia Flyers (11 GP, 0G, 1A). He’s been good at the AHL level, but not this good. His 22 goals are third best in the league and he has 35 points in 41 games. Lind, meanwhile, joins three other Comets (Reid Boucher, Nikolay Goldobin, Rafferty) in the top-10 in AHL points with 37 in 42 games (12 goals, 25 assists). CARSON FOCHT Ready, aim, fire. The Hitmen centre shot seven pucks at the Swift Current net on Wednesday, scoring two, in a 4-3 shootout win for Calgary. Focht, a 2019 fifth-round pick, was named the game’s first star. One goal came on a tic-tac-toe play, with the 6-foot-1, 181-pounder finding a soft spot in the high slot and ripping a wrister through the Broncos goaltender. In Friday’s 3-1 loss at the Brandon Wheat Kings, Focht had an assist and three shots on goal. But he finished the weekend in style, scoring a goal and assisting on another in a 3-2 win in Winnipeg on Sunday. Meanwhile, teammate and fellow Canucks prospect Jett Woo had another good week as the team’s top defenceman, putting five shots on net in Wednesday’s win while notching an assist in Friday’s loss. Woo, a 2018 second-rounder, also assisted on Focht’s goal in Sunday’s win. Focht leads the team in goals with 22 and has 37 points in 40 games this season. Woo, a right-shot defenceman, has six goals, 21 assists and a plus-six rating in 43 games. Nikita Tryamkin checks Ryan Johansen of the Nashville Predators through the bench door in February 2017. John Russell / PNG NIKITA TRYAMKIN Big player. Even bigger minutes. Tryamkin continued to get loads of ice time this past week, logging a team-leading 21:58 in two straight games for Avtomobilist of the KHL. He also scored his second of the season while he was at it. The goal, scored in a 3-1 loss to Severstal on Tuesday, came on a clapper from the point, with the 6-foot-8, 254-pound defenceman blowing it by the goalie after a faceoff win. Tryamkin, 25, had four shots on net and an even rating in the game. (Skip to 2:45 for the goal) In Thursday’s 4-2 win against Salavat Yulaev, he had three shots, two penalty minutes and a plus-one rating. The left-shot D-man, whose KHL contract expires at the end of the season, has two goals, nine assists and a plus-seven rating in 44 games. JACK RATHBONE Every rose has its thorn. The Crimson defenceman had a great game in No. 18 Harvard’s 3-1 win over St. Lawrence on Friday, but had to leave at the start of the third period with what’s being called an upper-body injury. Rathbone, quarterbacking the third-ranked power play in the NCAA, had two PP assists and four shots on goal while impacting the game with his slick skating, soft hands and good stick-work. The 2017 fourth-rounder didn’t skate in Saturday’s 5-3 loss to No. 7 Clarkson, but he was on the lineup sheet, so whatever ailment he has probably isn’t too severe. Rathbone, 20, has four goals, 12 assists and an even rating in 16 games this sophomore season. Russia’s Vasili Podkolzin, left, fails to score past Canada’s goaltender Joel Hofer, right, during the U20 Ice Hockey Worlds gold medal match between Canada and Russia. AP Photo/Petr David Josek / PNG VASILI PODKOLZIN Let’s hope he can get a little help from his friends. Podkolzin, 18, still doesn’t have any points in KHL play this season, but the St. Petersburg forward is now getting a regular shift on a unit that features World Junior linemates Kirill Marchenko and Ivan Morozov. The young fourth-line combo came close to producing a goal in Tuesday’s 3-0 win against Dinamo Riga, with Podkolzin being sent in on a partial breakaway. The 2019 first-rounder was unable to manoeuvre the puck past a sprawling goaltender before getting dumped into the net from behind. Podkolzin logged 11:20 of ice time, but life is good not being the thirteenth forward, a distinction which went to poor Vasily Glotov, who skated barely over six minutes. Podkolzin played a strong game, drawing attention from the in-game announcers while being featured in a broadcast interview between periods. The skilled and strong 6-foot-1, 192-pound right winger also played well in Thursday’s 4-1 win over Jokerit, getting two shots on goal and two hits in 11:25. Podkolzin has no points and a minus-two rating in 17 KHL games this season. He also has three goals, five assists and a plus-3 rating in 16 VHL games. TYLER MADDEN Madden played in just one NCAA game this past week, a 3-2 overtime loss to Connecticut. The 2018 third-rounder was effective for No. 12 Northeastern, putting six shots on net while going a plus-1. He was also 11-for-24 from the faceoff dot. With 16 goals and 15 assists in 22 games, the sophomore is having a super season and currently sits third in the Hobey Baker race, which fans can vote on at NILS HOGLANDER Not a great week for Hoglander, who went a minus-3 with no points in Rogle BK’s 7-4 loss to Lulea on Thursday in Swedish Hockey League action. He was better in Saturday’s 5-2 win versus Orebro, buzzing around offensively with three shots on goal and one hit in 13:04. Hoglander also got crunched from behind and slammed to the ice at one point, drawing a minor penalty. The 19-year-old winger has six goals and five assists in 23 games this season. He’s also a minus-5.
  23. Saskatchewan native and Edmonton Oil Kings captain Ashton Sautner has signed his NHL entry-level contract with the Vancouver Canucks, according to his agent. The Flaxcombe product’s signature was barely dry on the three-year deal when he faxed over the papers to his agent, Jeff Helperl, before heading to his latest WHL game. “It’s so exciting,” Sautner said in a brief phone interview before his Oil Kings took on the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Friday. “I can’t thank my friends and family enough for all of their support over the years.” Sautner is enjoying his best offensive WHL season. The undrafted 20-year-old was 12th in scoring among blue-liners heading into Friday’s action with 48 points.
