Dominik Mason - Peterborough Petes; Juho Lammikko - Kingston Frontenacs - Prospect Faceoff for 10/16/15

Auston Matthews is taking an unconventional path to the NHL, and has earned a few accolades already while playing in Switzerland. Two electric playmakers go head-to-head in a battle of assist machines in the QMJHL, and a pair of potential Canadian teammates will likely see a lot of each other in a weekend contest. The Tampa Bay Lightning’s newest signee lines up against a powerhouse forward in what could be a preview of what to expect in the future from both Floridian franchises. NCAA hockey is back, and two Top-20 teams are set to clash in a non-conference game to close out this week’s edition of Prospect Faceoff.

The North Division name comes over from the American Hockey League’s Western Conference along with three teams from last year’s division – Rochester, Utica and Toronto – in addition to the other three teams from New York state – Albany, Binghamton and Syracuse. The St. John’s IceCaps, who have switched their affiliation from Winnipeg to Montreal, also make up this seven-team division that has several pre-existing rivalries due to the close proximity of most of the teams.

The Nylander family is in the news lately, and the youngest family member, Alex, just scored one of the prettiest goals of the year. Another family, the Strome’s, are making waves themselves, but again it’s youngest brother Matt that started the year off hot. There’s more, too, as top prospects in Tampa Bay and Winnipeg push for playing time just like the world-famous Hanson Brothers did. Read more»

The Tampa Bay Lightning‘s prospect pool has maintained good health despite the continual graduation of top-notch prospects. A number of close-to-ready prospects played small roles with the team last season, while others like Nikita Kucherov and Ondrej Palat emerged as top-six forwards. Players like Vladislav Namestnikov and Nikita Nesterov, still considered prospects, are expected to make the leap this season, but there’s still quality and quantity at other levels. Read more»

Prospect Faceoff returns to Hockey’s Future with a pair of recently re-assigned Philadelphia Flyers prospects kicking off their junior season in style. In Ottawa, Travis Konecny goes one-on-one against one of 2015’s breakout stars in Andrew Mangiapane. Another Flyers prospect recently returned to his junior team, Travis Sanheim, goes against a steady performer in Luke Philp. The QMJHL is already underway, and Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Dmytro Timashov’s playmaking abilities will be tested against Nicolas Meloche. Finally, the USHL kicks off their regular season this weekend and two late-round European prospects should see a lot of each other in a prime weekend venue. Read more»
