Below The Show - Mar. 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 Jonathan Bernier, Jiri Tlusty and Janne Pesonen.

  • The playoffs in the CHL are starting and guys like Cody Hodgson, Logan Couture and Drayson Bowman look to pick up where they left off the regular season... on fire. 

  • In college action, BU dman Matt Gilroy is a highly sought after free agent and 20 points in his last 19 games tells you why.

  • In Europe, St. Louis prospect Lars Eller had a strong finish in the Swedish Elite League and will look to have the same impact next year that Patrik Berglund had for the Blues this year.
