Below The Show - Jan. 2009

We're keeping an eye on the feeder leagues for you... here's an update on some of the key prospects, has-beens and other notables playing in the AHL, Canadian Junior, NCAA and Europe.

Highlights so far include:

  • Hot months in the AHL for prospects like Artem Anisimov, Janne Pesonen and Jakub Kindl.

  • If people weren't writing off Al Montoya yet, then they should now.

  • Taylor Hall uses his WJHC snub to pad his lead in the OHL scoring race and Dustin Tokarski continues to impress.

  • Gilroy, Hanson and Bozak are three names you'll be hearing a lot about as all are un-drafted college free agents that could be in the NHL before the end of the season.

  • In Europe... its mostly former NHLers in the KHL (Emery, Jagr, Radulov) or youngster in Sweden (Markstrom, Hedman, Svensson-Paajarvi) that are catching our eye.

Stats as of January 15/16.
