Prospect Report - April 2
Week of March 24, 2014 - March 30, 2014
Connor Hellebuyck, G – UMass-Lowell Riverhawks (Hockey East)
Connor Hellebuyck was perfect in backing the UMass-Lowell Riverhawks to their second straight Hockey East title, shutting out Notre Dame (4-0 W, 35 saves) and New Hampshire (4-0 W, 30 saves). His masterful play resumed during the NCAA championship tournament as he made 35 saves against Minnesota State on Mar. 29 to move on to the round of eight. That would be the end of the Riverhawks’ road as they were dismissed, 4-3, by the second‐ranked team in the country, Boston College.
Ben Chiarot, D – St. John’s IceCaps (AHL)
Blue liner Ben Chiarot has earned a call‐up to the big club following a productive week in St. John’s. Despite the team compiling only four goals on the week, Chiarot managed to chip in with three points (1G, 2A) including his fifth goal of the season on Mar. 26 in Syracuse (2‐3 L). The defensive specialist has racked up an impressive plus/minus this season, leading the IceCaps at +24 and tied for fourth‐best in the AHL in that category.
Eric Comrie, G – Tri-City Americans (WHL)
The overmatched Tri‐City Americans earned one win in their best‐of‐seven series against the CHL’s top ranked team, the Kelowna Rockets. That win was powered by a 52‐save effort by goaltender Eric Comrie. The 18‐year‐old was shelled in the first round WHL series facing an average of 41 shots per game, coming away with a .917 save percentage in the series.
Andrew Gordon, RW – St. John’s IceCaps (AHL)
IceCaps’ winger Andrew Gordon recorded a pair of assists last week after St. John’s mustered only four goals on the week. He’s moved into first among the IceCaps’ scoring leaders thanks to a run of 10 points (4G, 6A) over the last 10 games played. In his first season in St. John’s, Gordon has amassed 51 points (22G, 29A) in 68 games.
Tucker Poolman, D – Omaha Lancer (USHL)
Defenceman Tucker Poolman and the Omaha Lancers are two games away from wrapping up the USHL regular season. Poolman has had a solid offensive campaign sitting third among all USHL defencemen in scoring and leading in power play goals (9). The recruit of University of North Dakota has improved his plus/minus considerably in his second season with Omaha, currently sitting at +20 after finishing ‐7 in 2012‐13.
