Update Of Boston Bruin Prospects 11-15 At The Third Quarter Point Of The Season

By Bob Willwerth

Forward Lee Goren

Pro. Bruins GP 56 G 26 A 31 PTS 57 PIM 96

Bos. Bruins GP 10 G 2 A 1 PTS 3 PIM 7

Lee continues to climb the prospect list and break the top 10 . He is having his best year as a professional . The former North Dakota star sniper played several games for Boston and didn’t look out of place . His style of play is reminiscent of a young Mike Knuble . The Bruins have been patient with Lee and this may pay off shortly .

Forward Brett Nowak

U. Of Harvard GP 28 G 10 A 24 PTS 34 PIM 51

Brett is having a good but not great senior season . He has not exceeded expectations nor has he disappointed . Starting the season strongly he has recently plateaued . Whether the Bruins sign him may depend on his post season . He has played well in the first round of the ECAC Tournament.Selected second team All Ivy League .

Forward Vladslav Evseev

Moscow Dynamo Sup.League GP 19 G 1 A 1 PTS 2 PIM 2

Vlad has made the jump to the Russian Super League as an 18 year old . This is a fine accomplishment , however , would Vlad be better off playing in the Upper League and receiving more ice time possibly playing on special teams . Playing for Dynamo he is relegated to fourth line duty in the Super League . Usually it is better for a young player to acquire as much ice time as possible to hone his skills . He is not having a productive year . Still plenty of time for Vlad to become a top prospect .

Forward Jan Kubista

HC Pardubice Jrs. GP 31 G 15 A 10 PTS 25 PIM 40

HC Pardubice EXTRA League GP 9 G 1 A 1 PTS 2 PIM 0

HC Hradec Kralove 1 League GP 2 G O A O PTS O PIM O

Jan started the season well and playing productively . He was moved up to the top Extra League and saw his productivity fall off . Recently he has moved to the 1 league . Sounds like a repeat of Evseev , Jan did have a good rookie camp with the Bruins and Boston may try to sign him in the off season like Ivan Huml and play him in the AHL .

Defenseman Andrew Alberts

Boston College GP 36 G 6 A 16 PTS 22 PIM 58

He is having a superb sophmore season . Andrew plays a regular shift , kills penalties , and plays point on the power play . Big and tough Andrew has a future in professional hockey . He has been a top performer for Boston College .
