Catching the Torch: Dec. 23 to Dec. 29

For Bruce - Joel Auerbach

A statistical review of the Montreal Canadiens prospects and their performance for the past week.

The Three Stars

1. D Greg Pateryn

Taking a step ahead of his fellow defensive prospects on the Hamilton Bulldogs, Greg Pateryn had a very impressive week as he continues to build on a solid season. Pateryn would begin the week with overtime heroics, scoring the game-winning goal in a 2-1 overtime victory over the Toronto Marlies on Thursday afternoon. He would next mark two assists the following night as the Bulldogs would have a rematch with the Marlies, but would once again double up their opponents on the scoreboard in a 4-2 victory. He would notch another goal in the following game as the Bulldogs would edge out a 4-3 shootout victory over the Utica Comets to complete a perfect run over a 3 games in 3 days schedule. Pateryn's 6 goals and 9 assists this season leads all defencemen in Hamilton in scoring and makes him 4th overall on the team in the category. Greg Pateryn was drafted in the 5th round, 128th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2008 NHL Draft and was acquired by the Montreal Canadiens as part of the Mikhail Grabovski trade.

2. RW Martin Reway

After being called upon to represent Slovakia for a second year at the World Junior Hockey Championships, Martin Reway has wasted no time in becoming a standout player for his country. In his first game of the tournament versus Germany, he would score a goal and three assists as Slovakia would rout the Germans 9-2. Slovakia would face a far tougher opponent the following game and while hewould score a pair of goals versus Team USA, they would suffer a 6-3 loss. Reway's three goals and three assists has him 3rd in overall scoring at the World Junior Tournament and he has already tripled his scoring results from his 17-year old year in the tournament. Martin Reway was drafted in the 4th round, 116th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2013 NHL Draft.

3. LW Jacob de la Rose

After going without a point at his first opportunity to represent Sweden at the World Junior Championships last year, Jacob de la Rose seems quite determined to write a different story this time around. de la Rose would open the tournament by marking a pair of assists in Sweden's 1st game, a 5-3 victory over Switzerland. He would mark his first goal of the tournament in the following game, which would also end up as the game-winning marker in a 4-2 victory over Sweden. He would finish the week picking up an assist in a 10-0 whitewash of Norway. Jacob de la Rose was drafted in the 2nd round, 34th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2013 NHL Draft.
