AHL Watch #3

Who's called up & who may be next...

Called up...

J.T. Miller, New York Rangers

World Juniors gold, praise from the entire Rangers staff, and his first NHL game under his belt, not a bad year so far for J.T. Miller. He didn’t look out of place against the Devils last night; Miller has developed his all-round game so that he can stay up at the NHL level. There doesn’t seem to be much wiggle room in the Rangers top-six forward lines, so for the time being his fantasy stock isn't large, but he is one to stash away in keeper leagues.

Tomas Tatar, Detroit Red Wings

Is this the call-up that Tatar fans have been waiting for? The highly touted Slovak has made a home for himself in the AHL, playing his first season way back in 2009/10 for Grand Rapids which seems ages ago now. He had a cup of coffee back in 2010/11 for 9 games with the Red Wings, but now comes his real opportunity skating on a line with Pavel Datsyuk and Valtteri Filppula. Monitor him closely.

Charlie Coyle, Minnesota Wild

Due to the ineffective play of Devin Setoguchi and Mikael Granlund, the Wild have chosen Charlie Coyle to replace their minutes in significant offensive situations. Coyle is in his first pro-season and has an impressive 14 goals on the farm, he’ll be counted on to do something similar in Minnesota. Being called up and immediately sitting in a good spot to be able to produce, Coyle is worth taking a look at.

Stephane Da Costa, Ottawa Senators

He’ll certainly need more than the 7:07 minutes he got in his first game this season to make any sort of impact in the fantasy world, the 23 year old out of Paris, France is starting to play a more responsible game and is becoming more of an all-round player. It will be interesting to see how the Sens forward lines shuffle up because their should be opportunies for Stephane to get top six minutes, plus some PP time down the road.

Mark Arcobello, Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers called up the forward to replace the injured Shawn Horcoff, the centerman was leading the Barons in current player scoring with 39 points in 43 games, although his job in Edmonton will not be one of a top-six forwards role. Arcobello is regarded as very hard working player, and should fit in well within the bottom six, that may even translate to some points. Don’t add, just observe.

Next ones up...

Tyler Johnson, Tampa Bay Lightning

It seems at every level one thing has remained constant for Tyler Johnson, putting up points. The 22 year old is enjoying another great offensive year, something he’s gotten used to at every level. The knock on him is that, yes, he’s one of those ‘small’ forwards, sitting at around 5’9 and 175 lbs. He’s got speed to burn and great hands. He will get a shot at the NHL sometime soon.

Chris Terry, Carolina Hurricanes

The 23 year old forward is already into his fourth pro season with the Hurricanes organization, and has either been second or first in team scoring all four years, but yet has never played an NHL game. The former Plymouth Whaler stand-out should eventually get that shot, and would not be surprised if he did in fact get an opportunity this season.

Robin Lehner, Ottawa Senators

His numbers are unreal on the farm right now; .946 SV% with a 1.86 GAA. In my opinion, this is the best goalie not playing in the NHL right now. That torch has been officially passed from Jacob Markstrom to Mr. Lehner. When given the chance with the Sens last year, he did not disappoint posting up an impressive .935 SV% in 5 games. Only a Craig Anderson injury, this season at least, would allow Robin to become a factor.
