With the NHL’s top prospects missing league time for the 2015 World Junior Championship, December is often a tough month to compare and contrast performances; with several high-profile picks not playing junior, lesser known prospects are able to shine. Christian Dvorak (ARZ) had 26 points in 10 games in the month of December, an OHL best, while undrafted WHL player Trevor Cox recorded 28 points in the month. Read more»

It’s been a total upheaval in the standings in the AHL‘s Western Conference from last spring through the first third of the 2014-15 season. Two of the top four teams in the conference last season aren’t even in the top nine currently – Grand Rapids (9th) and Toronto (12th) – leaving the Western Conference wide open as teams head into the middle third of the schedule amidst the height of injuries and call-ups.

The narratives down in Lake Erie and Fort Wayne are a lot different than in Denver. In the NHL, the Colorado Avalanche is struggling to stay out of the basement and currently sits in last place in the Central Division after claiming the title last year. In Cleveland, the Monsters are ninth in the AHL’s Western Conference but only four points away from fifth place with games in hand. In Fort Wayne, the Komets are at the top of the ECHL.
