Montreal Canadiens Prospect Roundup 11

Richard Wolowicz

WIth the playoffs now on, Danny Kristo has already started to shine. Can he join the Canadiens right out of university when his season is done?

Not much to report for Nygren, who was held pointless in a single game.

Similar to Nygren, Nystrom had just one game and didn't manage a point. Slow week for Swedish prospects.

Pribyl's season is over as well, which means our European prospects combined for a whopping zero points last week.

Brady Vail 19 OHL Windsor Regular Season 68 20 35 55
AHL Hamilton Regular Season 4 0 1 1
Last week 3 0 1 1

Vail hit a milestone this week with his first ever professional point while playing with the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs haven't exactly been playing lights out, but it seems like even at 19 Vail is holding his own, which is a good sign for his future.

Olivier Archambault 20 QMJHL Drummondville Regular Season 64 32 34 66
QMJHL Drummondville Playoffs total 5 2 4 6
Last week 4 2 3 5

Archambault stepped it up another notch after netting an assist in his first playoff game, now up to 6 points in 5 games for Drummondville.

Update: Drummondville was eliminated despite Archambault's performance, and he's now signed an amateur tryout to play with the Bulldogs with Brady Vail.

Charles Hudon 18 QMJHL Chicoutimi Regular Season 56 30 41 71
QMJHL Chicoutimi Playoffs total 5 4 3 7
Last week 4 4 1 5

The Canadiens' best prospect in Quebec remains their best prospect in Quebec, ripping it up in the playoffs with 4 goals in 4 games this week, with an apple to boot. Hudon's dynamic offense should be exciting for all Habs fans.

Darren Dietz 19 WHL Saskatoon Regular Season 72 24 34 58
WHL Saskatoon Playoffs total 4 1 1 2
Last week 2 1 0 1

The Saskatoon Blades have been swept in the first round once again, which has our own Bruce Peter ready to choke coach Molleken. Molleken has been swept out of the playoffs more times than he's won a series, which is embarrassing considering the caliber of teams he's had in Saskatoon. The Blades are hosting the Memorial Cup though, so Dietz's season isn't over, it's just on hold until May 17.

What a disappointing year for Thrower. Here's hoping he can rebound in the Memorial Cup tournament. Maybe the time off will help him work on his game.

Tim Bozon 18 WHL Kamloops Regular Season 69 36 55 91
WHL Kamloops Playoffs total 3 2 0 2

Much better week than last, as Bozone scores twice in two games for the Blazers in their opening round matchup. Kamloops has a stranglehold on the series with a 3-1 lead.

Mac Bennett's season is over as Michigan failed to qualify for the playoffs.

Danny Kristo 22 NCAA North Dakota Regular Season 39 26 26 52
Last week 1 1 0 1

Kristo scored the game winning goal in North Dakota's first game of the playoffs, sending them on to the next round (NCAA has single elimination). At this point there's a real chance that it will be Danny Kristo joining the Canadiens, instead of a trade deadline pickup. Once his NCAA season is over, the skilled right winger could slot in beside Lars Eller and Alex Galchenyuk to make a potent, fast line.

MacMillan is still cold as ice right now as North Dakota is on their playoff drive. Hopefully he can step it up soon.

Sprague Ribinsoin 27 Liga Supa Glöorpf HK Regular Season 37 237 0 237
Liga Supa Glöorpf HK Playoffs total 7 107 0 107
Last week 5 63 0 63

Even with Sprague's elite scoring presence, Glöorpf HK had trouble in the first round of the playoffs. In game six, with Glöorpf HK leading the series 3-2, and leading the game 17-16, Sprague was sprung with a hard pass out of the zone while the opposing net was empty. The puck bounced over his stick, but his teammate Avi (no last name) was able to corral the puck and had a clear breakaway on the open net. Realizing what would happen if Sprague was awarded an assist, coach Skaär van der Gaärnaärdaärhaärlaärnaärjaärensensensensensensensen began to scream at Avi to not score the insurance marker. He noticed at the last second, and from the crease, dumped the puck into the corner. Of course the play came the other way instantly, with Glöorpf HK giving up a goal in the dying seconds, and another in the opening minutes of overtime. Game 7 was a goaltending battle though, it finished at just 12-9 with Sprague scoring every goal for Glöorpf.
