MSG NEWS

prospect edition

 

The stable of unsigned prospects in the Rangers organization have quietly gotten back to the business of hockey in their home rinks around the world. Let's check in and see where they are at with covid interruptions to the development of all hockey prospects globally, some will have a leg up on the others, simply based on the region in which they reside. At a glance, we are looking bright.

 

74th oa 2019 -C Alexei Protas - (WSH 91st oa nhl) In the KHL, man bites covid. Not surprisingly therefore Alexei has managed to put in a pretty complete season playing in the best league in Russia/Eastern Europe. He managed 10 goals and 8 assists and was even on the plus minus in 58 games before tuning up for the playoffs. There, our young star shone brightly potting 4 points in 5 KHL playoff games before his Dinamo Minsk club took him to 2 games in the Belarus Cup! he was plus 1 in those two games with no points. The experience for the young Belarussian is priceless and will only add to his hockey maturity as he transitions to North America. All this just the very next year after putting up 80 points in 58 games for the Prince Albert Raiders of the WHL. Defensively reliable and not a natural penalty minute machine, Alexie is shaping up to be a force in the Hockey World for years to come. Protas may join the WHL Raiders now that they are operational, and so his development story is still being written!

 

84th oa 2019 -D Daniil Misyul - (NJD 70th oa nhl) Played in all three tiers of Russian Men's leagues this past season. 2 points in 3 games in the EHT saw him elevate to the MHL for a game while the bulk of his season was on the Yaroslavl club in the KHL, where he put up 7 points in 46 games patrolling the back end and seeing some playoff action with the less powerful Lokomotiv. Misyul's speed and puck rush from the back end are a hallmark. A scouting note that the Lokomotiv are very stingy giving minutes to teenagers in the top Russian Men's league is worth relaying here. Misyul on say, a Dinamo club may have had a dramatic effect on his point production, we will never know. What we do know is that he is quietly but surely raising his pro game ability and profile day by day. 

 

94th oa 2019 -RW/C Graeme Clarke - (NJD 80th oa nhl) On the strength of Graeme's first 7 games in the AHL, we believe, he has been signed by his NHL club just last week to an ELC!! 2 goals 1 assist in 7 games after an incredible covid related layoff wherein he got only 16 games in all of 2020. if this is Graeme Clarke warming up for the season we are thrilled! Of his only 16 games last season, he did not disappoint: netting 17 points in 16 games in the OHL with the 67's. Of note is that Clarke was Canada's final cut from the World Juniors Championship team just two or three months ago, speaks well in and of itself. 

 

97th oa 2019 -C Marcus Kallionkieli - (VGK 139th oa nhl) Marcus has just 9 games but 5 points in the Finnish SM-sarja, the HIFK U20 squad. THie season is just getting underway after his short 2020 season with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL, where the fleet distributor notched 11 points in 24 games. Seemingly always on the plus side of the +-, and with a very low penalty count, Kalliankieli seems to be on a trajectory to an NHL two way middle six career. Two 'covid' years removed from his almost ppg work in the USHL, the coming year will be crucial for Marcus development but we have lots of time for this 2019 draftee who is still just 19 years old. 

 

101st oa 2019 - Yaroslav Likhachyov - (undrafted in the nhl) Back in the Q for 23 games now, the QMJHL being one of the longer up and running leagues in North America during the covid crisis, Yaroslav is on fire with 12 goals and 16 assists during the 2020-21 campaign. A PPG player last season with the same Armada squad, he appears to be set to go over and above his last stats year. The diminutive forward is listed among the best undrafted players from 2019, a draft he only made the age cut for by 2 weeks! Still with 7 or 8 months to go to his 20th birthday, and with 1.22 points per game in the Q right now, we are thrilled to have gotten him with our 101st overall selection in his first draft eligible year. 

Spoiler

(Spoiler alert the knock on him is that he is a Russian KIND of a player as noted in this excerpt from Future Considerations:). Likhachyov is a flashy and skilled offensive forward. The Russian winger is not a dynamic player, but he is most certainly an exciting one. With his incredible hands, he can dangle anybody and it’s just so seamless. He is easily one of, if not the most skill 2019 eligible prospect of the QMJHL. He has a great vision and creates a lot of scoring chances for his teammates by attracting the opponent with quick dangles to then feed his linemates in the slot. His wrist shot is above average, but he uses it with so unpredictability that he sometimes surprises goalies. He has an above average speed, but some great edges and quick turns. The knock on him, though, is his very poor strength. He sometimes gets blocked on his stickhandling moves simply because of his poor upper body strength and he will rarely get involved along the boards. He often cheats on zone exits and he is not very involved in the defensive play, either. Likhachyov has a very high ceiling, but he will need to improve his strength and involvement defensively.

 

114th oa 2019 - Michael Gildon (acquired via trade) - (undrafted in the nhl) The centerman has chosen the NCAA path, after going undrafted in the nhl entry draft, and his development has fallen off due entirely to covid. 8 Games last year and now just 19 this season, Michael is struggling to get started with 2 points and -4 +-rating. He seems sound in having only 6 penalty minutes over those two seasons however and we hope that he will pick up where he left off at the end of 2019 once covid passes out of the headlines. 29 points in 26 games in the USHL that year AND 45 points in 61 games with the US Development team bely an underlying skill level that may have simply gone dormant during these hard global health times. Our second prospect from the list of "best of the 2019 undrafted", we know MG is a project, but one we are happy to work on. At 6'2" 200 pounds at 19 years of age, and doing his best work in front of the net and in the corners, we feel that Michael could crack the NHL as a distributor doing the hard work of puck retrieval in the O zone. Every team has room for role players, and that is why we brought him in via trade all the way back in what seems like years ago: February 2020.

Very happy to keep Roussel in the fold here in Columbus. I am big fan of his story, game, and perseverance. I know he can be a bit of a whipping boy in Vancouver but I personally love him on our team. He is a fantastic leader and role model for a lot of our young kids. Very excited ! We were hoping we could extend him last season when we paid a rather absorbent price to acquire him.

We would like to wish Christian well in Vegas. Moving him wasn't super easy but we are thankful we could move him to a club that can better utilize his skills. We hope he has a productive nhl career over in VGK. Jeremie is a player we had our eyes on last draft  - although he is a long shot we like his potential upside. Thanks to VGK for the talks!

@Rush17 I actually bought clippers advertised as 'Balding Clippers' to get an extra close cut... And I'm not even balding (more of a very lackadaisical 'retreat') :lol:

In a surprise move the Sabres might take a look at placing Matt Dumba or Ryan Pulock on the block.

 

The return would be expected to be LARGE so if you offered a B prospect and a 3rd I will publicly shame you

WAIVERS: The Florida Panthers have claimed defenceman Kurtis MacDermid from the Nashville Predators via waivers.

With all those waiver claims, I believe the Florida Panthers are prepared to get on the road and start filming...

A sweet ride pulling a sweet ride and I just need three more waiver claims for my six pack.

 

it’s like picking up little versions of @theminister which makes a crazy pit crew, fun...but crazy!
