It was a very productive month for two juniors forwards. Another dipped slightly since last update and a defenseman was heating up before an injury. Let’s delve in.

Prospect Update

Cole Brown has upped his pace to over a half point a game for a surprising Brantford team that has gone 6-2-2 in its last ten and has now risen to second place in the East. Brown is still slightly off last season’s pace, a not-so-great sign, given he is a year older, but if he keeps up his recent trend he should eclipse that before long.

Cam Squires has risen the most since last update and is now at his last season’s pace in both goals and points. Squires also leads his team in points and has taken more of a leadership role for the Eagles. With continued success, Squires will likely earn a ELC with the Devils in the near future.

Josh Filmon slipped a little bit since last update but still boasts the highest ppg of all Juniors prospects with 1.07 and leads all Devils prospects across all leagues in points with 29. Filmon’s point pace is still roughly the same as last season though his goal totals are way down — still nearly half of last year’s. On the plus side, Filmon has been shooting more recently as his shot totals rocketed since last update, but he has not been finding the net with the same regularity and still has a long way to go in the goal-scoring department to match last season’s totals.

Chase Cheslock only played a few games last month due to injury, but the defenseman added three points in that short sample and now sits over a half point per game.

Around the Pool

  • Utica is hot with four straight wins. On Friday, Nico Daws returned as part of that streak defeating Bridgeport 4-1. Daws stopped 31 of 32 for a terrific first game back. Graeme Clarke scored and is currently on a four game goal streak.
  • Speaking of Utica netminders, Erik Kallgren left Sunday’s game with an injury.
  • Winger Lenni Hameenaho continues his fine play:
  • No surprise to see Seamus Casey here.
