Karl Stewart led Thrashers AHL prospects in points and points per
game, a stunning +24, and most surprisingly, 186 penalty minutes as he showed a
bit more edge to his game than in junior. Derek MacKenzie led all prospects in goals with
19.  Tommi Santala led prospects in points per game, but he’s also
the oldest.  Kurtis Foster‘s -2 is a big improvement over his
plus/minus last season.  Jeff Dwyer, who joined the team once Yale’s
season was over,  did not score a single point in 11 games played, which is
concerning for a supposedly offensive defenseman.  He was +1,
however.

Anthony Aquino‘s -2 doesn’t look as bad as it was most of the season,
but it was still one of the worst on the team. He struggled to get ice time down
the stretch. Paul Flache actually scored at a higher clip in the AHL than
the ECHL.

Jim Slater paced Thrashers prospects with 1.14 points per game. 
He was a Top 10 finalist for the 2004 Hobey Baker award.  Nathan Oystrick
was second on his team in scoring, from the blue line at a .72 points per game
pace.  Mike Hamilton helped his Maine Black Bears to the 2004 NCAA
Championship.  He picked up his scoring down the stretch and played a good
number of minutes for a freshman.

Loginov’s very
lopsided stats show how much of a pure goal-scorer he is.  Enstrom
finished with only five points in 33 games in the Swedish Elite League.

game.  Jimmy Sharrow‘s -19 looks painful, but the worst on the team
is a -35.
