Catching The Torch Abridged: Sept 22-28 Edition

Bruce Bennett

The latest on the Canadiens prospects and their scoring

With both the AHL and the NCAA yet to commence their seasons, but a number of Canadiens prospects already in action, I thought I would offer a shorter report on those currently playing rather than wait to begin my full column, currently slated to premiere on October 14. My traditional "Three Stars" will be held up until the Hamilton Bulldogs return to action as they represent about half the prospect base to be covered in Catching the Torch this season. However Catching the Torch will honour a Player of the Week with this format.

Catching The Torch Player of the Week:

LW Artturi Lehkonen: The very talented Artturi Lehkonen takes the lead this week among the prospects with what can only be described as an excellent start for an 18-year old in the Finnish SM-Liiga. The shifty sniper has taken a leading role for his SM-Liiga team, KalPa Kupio and helped lead them to two wins this past week. Lehkonen scored a goal and assist in a 4-0 win to open their week versus Ässät Pori. Lehkonen would add another goal in the team's next game against TPS Turku. Over six games, Lehkonen is a point-per-game player with three goals and three assists, leads his club in points and while it is early, he is also 6th in the Liiga in overall scoring.
