Dante Salituro - Ottawa 67's; Mikhail Sergachev - Windsor Spitfires - Prospect Faceoff for 2/11/16

In this week’s Prospect Faceoff, we take a look at Quebec Remparts goaltender Callum Booth, who has been the team’s saving grace during a rough stretch. He will be opposed by a former first overall pick, Daniel Audette, who has a chip on his shoulder and something to prove. Also in this week’s edition, one underrated forward on North Dakota is garnering attention, as are a pair of draft-eligible skaters who are in weekend competition. Read more»

Dylan Larkin - Team Atlantic - 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game

The Detroit Red WingsDylan Larkin and Artemi Panarin of the Chicago Blackhawks continue to be the leading candidates for this year’s Calder Trophy according to the January staff poll at Hockey’s Future. But the offensive exploits of Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere — as well as the play of rookie goalies Connor Hellebuyck and John Gibson — has made things interesting as the season progresses.

Arizona Coyotes having some success with first wave of NHL rookies

Max Domi - Arizona Coyotes

It feels like the Arizona Coyotes have been in the news for the wrong reasons in recent years. Relocation worries, arena concerns, wrangling around leases, and city council disputes have tended to overshadow the good work done by General Manager Don Maloney and his organization in building the best prospect group in the league. This season, led once again by one of the NHL’s best coaches in Dave Tippett, the Coyotes have been better than expected as they develop toward a contending squad. Part of that success is owed to the development of its rookie prospects.

Strome using lessons learned at first NHL camp to guide his Erie teammates

Dylan Strome - Erie Otters

Last year, all eyes were on the Erie Otters as the combination of Dylan Strome and Connor McDavid were charging up the OHL standings and the NHL Draft boards. This year, with McDavid in Edmonton and Strome having been drafted by the Arizona Coyotes third overall, it’s a different dynamic – and instead of leading the charge up the draft boards, or leading the scoring race, Strome is putting the pressure on himself to be a leader on his team.

Prospect Faceoff: Garland running away with QMJHL scoring title, trio of Winnipeg Jets prospects compete

Can anyone stop Conor Garland from scoring? The diminutive forward is already 30-points clear of second place in scoring, and a veteran goaltender will be tasked with attempting to keep him off the scoresheet in weekend action. Also in this NHL Prospect Faceoff, Brendan Lemieux, Jack Roslovic, and Jansen Harkins from the Winnipeg Jets organization are all in action this weekend. Finally, two Swedish defensemen with vastly different skill sets are chronicled in SHL action. Read more»
